After refreshing its packaging and its lineup of beers earlier this year, BridgePort Brewing Company has announced the release of its latest new year-round beer, Multi Ball Double IPA. This new west coast double IPA that replaces BridgePort’s former Hop Czar Imperial IPA and will begin hitting retail shelves in 12 oz. six-packs and on draft. Currently Multi Ball Double IPA is pouring at the BridgePort BrewPub as it has been exclusively for the past month.
Paying tribute to Portland’s iconic pinball and arcade scene, Multi Ball Double IPA is brewed to be a hop dominant west coast style double IPA that features seven different hop varieties. But before these hops were added the brewers started with a base of 2-row Pale malt with approximately seven-percent Cara-Crystal Malt to provide caramel notes and a rich amber color. Then to intensify this double IPA, brewers used hops in every step of the brewing process.
“We went nuts with the number of hops for this brew – a total of seven different types come in contact with this beer, making Multi Ball Double IPA a colossal west coast style IPA,” stated Jeff Edgerton, BridgePort Brewmaster in a news release. “Grab yourself a pint of Multi Ball and keep your eyes peeled for more exciting brews to come out of our upcoming pilot system, too!”
Multi Ball Double IPA comes in at 8.25% alcohol by volume and 87 IBU, showcasing Northwest hop flavor and character, finishing with a smooth mouthfeel.
Multi Ball Double IPA will be available throughout BridgePort Brewing’s distribution footprint of 18 states in 12- oz. bottles, 6-packs, and on-draft. For exact locations, please use BridgePort’s Beer Finder.
