ITHACA, N.Y. – Ithaca Beer Company is preparing to release the next of several limited IPA’s available in 16 oz. 4-pack cans and draft.
A follow-up companion to Mr. Sticky, Uncle Buzzy Double IPA releases on July 11 and is also named for one of our lovably shady and loyal Taproom regulars. The third in our 2019 Double IPA series, Uncle Buzzy exudes rich hop aroma with notes of fresh citrus, sweet pineapple, papaya, passion fruit, and ripe berries. The buzz on this release is an all-star showing of hops from both the Northern & Southern hemispheres, including, Australian Galaxy and Enigma as well as New Zealand Nelson Sauvin. The use of these Down Under hops and multiple dry-hop additions tie this beer together with a wine like essence and an almost sangria like concoction of hop flavor and aroma that make Uncle Buzzy a perfect summer sipper.
HOPS: Galaxy, Mosaic, Nelson Sauvin, Enigma, Simcoe, Cascade
MALTS: 2-Row Pale, Oats, Wheat, Honey
