By bringing Guinness-style nitrogenation to an IPA, the Irish brewer has created a hop-forward India Pale Ale with the qualities of a classic Guinness pint — namely balanced flavor and aroma, creamy mouthfeel and a perfectly formed and long-lasting head of dense bubbles.
Made in Dublin, Ireland at St. James’s Gate, Guinness™ Nitro IPA is brewed with Irish barley malt, a touch of roasted barley and five hop varieties — Admiral, Celeia, Topaz, Challenger and Cascade. The Challenger, Cascade and Topaz hops are dry-hopped to accentuate a sharp citrus aroma. The beer’s blend of CO2 and Nitrogen helps to balance out the profusion of hop flavors, while also creating the signature surge and settle made famous by Guinness™ Draught. The IPA is brewed with the same unique Guinness yeast strain used to ferment all stouts at St. James’s Gate.
Guinness™ Nitro IPA will be available in a six pack of 11.2 oz. cans and 13.2G kegs. It is best enjoyed in a famous Guinness Gravity Glass, which is specifically designed to optimize the benefits of nitrogenation and the aroma of the beer.
