Troegs Scratch # 56 Single Hop Simcoe–Oops

TroegsScratchLooks like a bit of an oops @ Troegs has helped release their first Single-Hop series beer…Simcoe:  Details from Troegs:

SCRATCH BEER #56-2011
OG: 14.2
ABV: 6.4%
IBUs: 62
Malt: Pils, Munich, Crystal
Hops: Simcoe
Yeast: House Ale Yeast
Codename: SHPA1 (Single Hop Pale Ale 1)

Here’s another Scratch test batch designed to delight our customers. Due to a minor flaw in a brewing program, we lost some of the mash when it was transferred to the brew kettle. A quick-thinking brewer modified the hop-load and created our first-ever single hopped beer.

Bronze in color with a dry finish, the lead flavor is intense grapefruit and a fruity backbone derived from Simcoe hops.

Please enjoy our mistake, and rest assured the modifications have been completed so it doesn’t happen again.
