Troegs Brewing Company Introduces Hopora IPA

Troegs Brewing Company has introduced Hopora IPA – their newest seasonal beer as part of their Hop Cyclone Series. Releasing today when the brewery opens, Hopora IPA is a 6.2% ABV Hazy tribute to all things Hops.

Hopora is a tribute to the hop spirit for a bountiful crop. Built on pale malt, oats and wheat, this IPA showcases Solero hops. Radiant notes of tropical citrus are supported by grapefruit rind and subtle pine from Citra and Chinook. Immerse yourself in the juicy aura of our crisp seasonal ale. – Hopora IPA

Tröegs Independent Brewing announced the release of Hopora IPA, a new offering in its popular Hop Cycle series of rotating IPAs. It joined seasonal fan – favorites Field Study, Hop Cyclone, and Blizzard of Hops.

A tribute to the hop spirit for a bountiful crop, Hopora was designed to showcase the radiant tropical fruit and citrus notes of Solero hops, the Hershey-based brewery said in a press release on Monday.

Troegs Independent Craft Brewing Company has been long known for making some remarkable IPAs; seasonal and year round, as well as one off scratch releases. Some ‘hall of fame’ favorites from the local community are Nimble Giant, Perpetual IPA, Lollihop, Blizzard of Hops (and its bigger, bolder, badder cousin Double Blizzard of Hops), Field Study, Cultivator, Crimson Pistil, Hop Horizon, Hop Knife, etc, etc, etc.

Troegs Brewing Company is set to hit their 26 year anniversary this week as well, and will also be re – releasing their original Pale Ale as well.

Hopora IPA

Hopora IPA releases today – July 17th – at the Troegs Brewery in Hershey Pennsylvania, and will be going out to all the distributors as well. It comes in both cans and bottles, and will also be featured in their upcoming sampler package including Perpetual IPA, Oktoberfest, and Lollihop.

I like to think Hopora captures the best of both IPA worlds – West Coast and hazy. It’s got just the right amount of bitterness that rolls into tropical aromas with notes of mango and passionfruit. Plus, it’s super tasty and the name is fun to say… HOPORA!

Tröegs brewmaster and co-founding brother John Trogner.

Built on a backbone of pale malt, oats and wheat, Hopora IPA clocks in at 6.2% alcohol by volume. Citra and Chinook hops round out the hop bill with supporting notes of grapefruit rind and subtle pine.

Like many of Tröegs’ recent beers, Hopora was developed through its three-barrel “Scratch Lab” brewhouse and fermentation tanks.

With the Scratch Lab, we can break up 15 – barrel brews into smaller trials. It has allowed us to test things like dry-hop combinations and yeast strains side-by-side at a faster rate. We used to have to wait a few weeks between batches.
