A mouthful of silky Simcoe hops and juicy mango. That’s what you get with our brand-new Second Cut Mango Double IPA!

This new 8.5% ABV Double IPA joins our rotating Once-a-Year series, which includes some of our most iconic and sough-after beers like Mad Elf, Nugget Nectar, and Nimble Giant.

As the hop growing season flourishes, farmers dust off their pruning shears. Trimming back those extra shoots helps bolster the bines for a rich harvest. Second Cut is a nod to those rituals, without which the world would be a less hoppy place.

And the beer’s name and label art might seem a little familiar. That’s because this beer picks up where we left off with our old fan-favorite seasonal release, First Cut.

Featuring two complementary ingredients – citrusy Simcoe hops and sweet mango – our brewers add more than 12 pounds of real fruit per barrel during the fermentation process to give Second Cut a sweet, fruity finish. The combination of Simcoe and Comet hops yields notes of juicy mango, pineapple, and raw honey. 

“We’re always searching for new flavors to showcase in our seasonal beers,” explains our co-founding brother and brewmaster John Trogner. “Over the years, First Cut become a cult classic, so we thought we’d create something bigger and bolder for those fans.” 

Second Cut is available on draft and in 16-ounce cans across our entire distribution footprint. Use our Brew Finder to snag some near you before it disappears!
