Troegs Brewing Releasing Second Cut DIPA

Back in October of 2023 we announced that Troegs Brewing would be releasing a “Double Cut” version of First Cut, and its finally time for the release. Welcome to Second Cut DIPA. The newest scheduled ‘once a year’ or ‘yearly’ release by Troegs Brewing in their DIPA (Double IPA) series. Second Cut will be releasing on April 22nd, 2024. (Perfectly in time for Earth Day.)

Unlike the above original label image, the Second Cut DIPA will be coming in at 8.5% ABV rather than 9.5%. It will be a Double IPA and is based off the Scratch 507 formula and recipe. It is a double version of First Cut IPA – so expect bright flavorful notes of Mango.

The newest DIPA to hit Troegs Brewery is an amplified version of First Cut IPA. A mango hoppy IPA that is a fan favorite at the brewery that sees just brewery release (and in this year’s fashion also limited local distribution). Second Cut DIPA will be seeing distribution as is befitting a new ‘once a year’ beer at Troegs. Expect it out on the markets starting on April 22nd, gradually hitting the further away markets as the days go by.

Second Cut DIPA is similar in how Troegs has released Double Nugget Nectar and Double Perpetual IPA. (Look for Double Perpetual IPA to be making a return later this year as well.)

First Cut

From our previous article – Second Cut DIPA Releasing This Spring – here are the notes of First Cut. Expect this x2 for Second Cut IPA:

The First Cut is a fan favorite and has a bit of a ‘cult following’ at the brewery. It is a 6.2% IPA – American style, with 45 IBU. Its typically released late February to early March each year at the brewery in Hershey. It has over 52,000 ratings on Untappd with a global average rating of 3.79 (as of 10.13.23). The Untappd description reads: Each spring, hop growers dust off their pruning shears and trim the first shoots, bolstering the bines for a rich growing season. First Cut – a mouthful of silky Simcoe and a touch of mango – is a nod to this ritual, without which the world would be a less hoppy place.

Second Cut Mango DIPA will be releasing on April 22nd, 2024 at the brewery as well as in distribution. The brewery opens at 11:30AM Monday, April 22nd, 2024. Second Cut will come in four packs of 16 oz pounder cans, and in cases. It will also be on draft in the store. There could potentially be sixtels for sale for customers as well. There is currently no listed limits for the purchases, and online sales of the beer will go live at 11:30AM as well.

As the hop growing season flourishes, farmers dust off their pruning shears bolstering the bines climbing skyward. Two days until a new seasonal Double IPA arrives. #Troegs#DoubleIPA

We are working on a massive project here at The Beer Thrillers. We are creating a map of all of the breweries across the United States. State by state we are adding maps of all of the different states with every brewery in each state. (We will eventually get to the US Territories, as well as the Canadian Provinces, and possibly more countries; as well as doing some fun maps like a map of all the breweries we’ve been to, and other fun maps.) You can find the brewery maps here:

We are also working on a project of creating printable and downloadable PDFs and resources to be able to check and keep track of all of the breweries you’ve been to. So stay tuned for that project once we are finished with the Brewery Maps of the US States.
