Troegs Brewing (Hershey PA) is well-known for having seasonal releases to complement their portfolio of beers. These include Nugget Nectar and Mad Elf, both of which disappear off the shelf the second they are put out for sale. The brewery’s summer release of Nimble Giant is no different. This well-crafted Imperial IPA is a perfect balance of Azacca, Mosaic, and Simcoe hops along with pineapple and grapefruit notes. It is sold in 4-packs of 16-ounce cans with a price point of around $13. According to the brewer, Nimble Giant was the result of several test batches and is considered by many as one of the most sought-after Imperial IPAs of the year. This beer is, without question, one of my top 5 Imperial IPAs.
