SAN MARCOS, Calif. — The Hop Concept’s Dank & Sticky IPA returns this April, sporting a new look in 16oz cans.
“People have been asking for us to can Dank & Sticky for a while,” said Tomme Arthur, COO and Co-Founder of Port Brewing, The Lost Abbey, and The Hop Concept. “Now that we have our canning line, we were able to make this a reality.”
The first beer to come off The Hop Concept’s new canning line, Dank and Sticky IPA was brewed with Eureka, Mosaic, Cascade, Comet, Simcoe, Chinook varietals.
Dank & Sticky begins with freshly peeled citrus zest and piney aromas on the nose leading to a smooth and slightly creamy mouth-feel, bursting with Grapefruit and Mango notes with a considerable “Dank” resinous finish.
“Dank and Sticky was already a favorite amongst our brewers,” Said Stephen Burchill, Head Brewer of Port Brewing, The Lost Abbey, and The Hop Concept. “Being able to play with all these hops to create a resinous West Coast IPA is a blast.”
The Hop Concept’s Dank & Sticky IPA (8.5% ABV) will be available throughout the Port Brewing / Lost Abbey / The Hop Concept distribution network in 4-packs of 16oz cans and limited 22oz bottles and draft beginning April 5th.
