Troegs Scratch 76- Special Hops Ale
Troegs tasting room to try Scratch 76- Special Hops Ale, a beer brewed for the underwater marathon helping injured military personnel. The beer pours a red amber color with a frothy cream colored head. The aroma consists of caramel, pine, lemon, spruce, grass, and just an overall fresh smell. The taste is bitter with lemon, lots of pine and spruce, and a solid caramel and toffee backbone. On the finish, the beer is dry with grass and hop oils. The alcohol content is 7.5% ABV. I absolutely loved this beer and to me it tasted like the median of Nugget Nectar and HopBack. It was so good that I proceeded to buy a case.
