Drakes Aroma Coma

Brewed by Drake's Brewing Company

American IPA6.8% ABV75 IBU

We start with almost all 2-row barley malt and a touch of Caramalt and Rye for body. Intense additions of American hops Citra, Cascade, Chinook, and a touch of El Dorado and Amarillo deliver huge flavors of citrus and resinous pine. Finally, a double round of dry-hopping amps up the aroma to absurd levels of hop enjoyment.

THE AROMA COMA STORY:

Over the years as beer drinkers clamored for more and more hops, California brewers started making what has become known as a “West Coast style” IPA with a stripped down malt bill and loads of late addition and dry hops that lend hop flavor and aroma without overwhelming the balance with bitterness. In 2009, Drake’s brewers struck out to create one of the first of these beers with their Aroma Coma. with huge American hop additions at the very end of the boil and a double dosing of dry-hops, they created a hoppy, aromatic force-of-nature that can be smelled across the bar as each pint is poured.
