VICTOR, ID – Grand Teton Brewing Company, known throughout the West for their exceptional craft brews, is proud to announce the seasonal release of Lost Continent Double IPA.
Grand Teton Brewing uses only American Pacific Northwest hops in their Lost Continent Double IPA. Bravo, Centennial and Columbus hops are added early in the boil for smooth, balanced bitterness. They add Columbus, Bravo and Simcoe later in the boil for flavor, and Columbus, Centennial and Simcoe in the whirlpool for aroma. The result is fruity, floral, and complex, with notes of tangerine zest and fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice.
Idaho 2-Row Pale Malted Barley and German Melanoidin and Vienna malts give this ale its lovely pale copper hue, with flavors of orange marmalade and dried apricots, supported by a strong backbone of hoppy bitterness.
Lost Continent Double IPA will be available April 1, 2015 in 1/2 and 1/6 bbl kegs and bottle-conditioned 12 ounce four packs.
