Nimble Giant, our gracefully dank Double IPA, is back.

One of our most-loved beers, this annual release rivals Mad Elf for the excitement it generates every year.

Nimble Giant came up through our small-batch Scratch Series, starting with our first experiments with Mosaic hops. After about a half-dozen Scratch beers, we hit upon a hop combination we loved – Mosaic, Simcoe and Azacca – and never looked back.

Nimble is a perfect storm of ingredients, people and processes that come together to form something greater than the sum of its parts.

It starts in the hop fields, with Simcoe’s notes of creamsicle and mango, Mosaic’s honeysuckle and grapefruit, and Azacca’s intense pineapple. At the brewery, our team came up with an innovative hopping technique – which we call the Hop Cyclone – to circulate those hop oils from the top to the bottom of our tanks, not missing an ounce of beer.

We also found the small window during fermentation to optimize that late-addition hopping.

In the end, the beautifully bold Nimble Giant is ripe with notes of grapefruit, pineapple and honeysuckle. Clocking in at 9% ABV, this deep orange double IPA is well-balanced by a backbone of pilsner and Vienna malt and drinks so easily.

This fan favorite is rated 4.1 on Untappd and is a consistent top 10 global trending beer on the geosocial rating platform.

Now’s the time to get your hands on some Nimble Giant. Find it on draft and in 4-packs and cases of 16-oz. cans wherever Tröegs is sold. But don’t wait … like summer, it won’t last forever.

About Tröegs Independent Brewing

Founded in Pennsylvania in 1996 by brothers John and Chris Trogner, Tröegs Independent Brewing is driven by a sense of adventure and curiosity. From the beginning, our brewery has been built by family, friends and kindred spirits who share a love of great beer.

“We’re not an English ale brewery,” says co-founder Chris Trogner. “And we’re not a German lager brewery. We take bits and pieces from each one of those traditions and try to come up with what we think is a very creative and great-tasting beer.”

Tröegs is widely known for award-winning beers like Perpetual IPA, Troegenator, Nugget Nectar and Mad Elf, as well as our experimental Scratch Series, wood-aged Splinter Series and Hop Cycle Seasonals. Tröegs started working in earnest with local ingredients back in 2002 with the debut of holiday favorite Mad Elf. Today, the brewery buys about 25,000 pounds of local honey and 100,000 pounds of Pennsylvania-grown barley every year. Tröegs also sources local produce including pumpkins, cherries, peaches, nectarines and strawberries from the fertile Fruit Belt of Pennsylvania.

Through rotating seasonal menus, Tröegs Scratch Kitchen is a showcase for new tastes and flavors, and our Guided Production Tour was named the best brewery tour in America by readers of USA Today. The annual Art of Tröegs contest showcases our love of art by challenging fans to create original artwork inspired by our beers.

“We’re drawn to people with a sense of adventure,” says co-founder John Trogner. “And we think they’re drawn to Tröegs.”
