Read on for more info on Nirvana from the Ommegang Brewery blog...
"Tri-State hop-heads are about to discover an entirely new state of being! Yesterday we released details about Nirvana IPA, our first-ever American-style India Pale Ale that will be available in across New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. It’ll be available in mid-April in 12oz bottle six-packs and on draft.
Nirvana IPA is kettle-hopped with Bravo, Simcoe, Centennial, Topaz, and Mosaic, dry-hopped with Centennial, Citra, Simcoe and Amarillo and clocks in at 6.5% ABV and 60 IBUs. The flavor is hoppy, juicy and citrusy goodness – without harsh bitterness.
Innovation Manager Mike says the aromas of grapefruit, peach, pineapple and apricot are mouth-watering and the taste is a big citrus smack, rounded and juicy with tropical and floral notes and just a touch of honey malt sweetness. We’re sold.
Nirvana IPA is also the first Ommegang beer that will be produced at our sister-brewery Boulevard in Kansas City, MO. Mike developed the recipe here in Cooperstown and then worked with Boulevard’s amazing team of brewers on the pilot batches.
Why is Boulevard brewing this beer? The reason is very simple: Boulevard is family and their hop-forward beer experience and dry-hopping capabilities coupled with their automated ability to produce six-packs (which we currently cannot) made them the perfect fit for our new beer."
