Thrilla in Brazilla is gold in
color with a tight white head of foam. The fruity-ester aroma
is high to very high. Hop aroma is further characterized by
high amounts of citrus with a slightly resinous character in the
background. The aroma follows through to the taste with
citrusy characters dancing on the palette, including the presence
of fresh oranges. Thrilla is a medium bodied beer with medium
high hop bitterness. As always, this beer is balanced.
We are brewed this American IPA
specifically for the 2014 Brazil World Cup. Thrilla in
Brazilla will be released June 12,the day of World Cup match 1
between Brazil and Croatia. The beer will initially feature
at pubs agreeing to show a match watching party for the
opener. We will then release the beer to the rest of the
market and it will remain available until July 12, the day of the
World Cup final.
Food pairing? A nice
thick juicy hamburger with fresh jalepeno and serrano
peppers. The spice in the burger pairs amazingly well with
the crisp citrusy hop character of Thrilla in Brazilla.
We receive more requests to make Great Scot! a full time beer
than anything else we've brewed. Although it's not a full
time beer just yet, we've brewed it again and look forward to some
pairings with kegs left over from 2012 and 2013.
It's possible we'll sprinkle in another limited release from
the past, but we're absolutely releasing a new beer in June.
We're especially excited about it and you'll know why when we
release those details. Stay tuned.
