Brewery Ommegang Nirvana IPA is headed your way in April, 2015.
Ommegang Nirvana IPA marks the first time the brewery has ever released an India pale ale. This small departure from Ommegang tradition uses Bravo, Simcoe, Centennial, Topaz, and Mosaic, dry-hopped with Centennial, Citra, Simcoe and Amarillo to create a beer full of fruity aromas and flavors.
“Over the past two years, our brew team’s explorations with hops yielded some very lovely beers, including Hop House and Fleur de Houblon, our summer seasonal,” said Phil Leinhart, Ommegang Brewmaster. “Nirvana IPA is the most adventurous hoppy beer to date for us and it really strikes at the sweet-spot of what more and more craft beer drinkers seem to be craving – a mid-level ABV beer with strong hop character that fits a variety of occasions.”
Ommegang Nirvana IPA will initially only be available in the tri-state area (NY, NJ, CT.) Interestingly, this is the first beer produced at Boulevard Brewing Co, both a part of the the Duvel family, as they are 6-pack capable. Ommegang’s Mike McManus worked on the recipe in Cooperstown before working with Boulevard on the hoppy project.
