Gigantic Brewing Announces New Ginormous Imperial IPA Series

Gigantic Brewing has announced it is launching a new series of Ginormous Imperial IPAs, constantly morphing and changing like Transformers, but probably a lot better than those movies.

More from a press release:

We have started a new program with our Ginormous Imperial IPA. We are going to be releasing a new version of Ginormous approximately every 7 weeks, each iteration featuring a new hop bill. We will be using some of the cool new hops – African Queen, Southern Aroma, Calista, and experimentals – and some of the favorites – Mosaic, Citra, Simcoe, Crystal, Nelson, and Galaxy.

To let people know that each beer is unique, every label will feature our robot Ginormo in a different position. We’ll also not the specific featured hop(s) and the beers will be numbered MK1, MK2, MK3 (Mark 1, Mark 2, Mark 3 – the way you track new production models of experimental machines… or robots)

The first release in the new Ginormous program ships this week, and features the African Queen hop from South Africa. African Queen, formerly known as Experimental Hop 98J17/63, are a South African hop variety that is incredibly tropical and contributes strong citrus, stone fruit, black currant, and gooseberry notes
