What Is Nimble Giant Double IPA?

Once you take a sip, you’ll be taken in by the bright citrus and pine flavors with a slight sweetness that balances it out. Unlike many IPAs, this beer leaves you with a pleasant aftertaste, that will leave you wanting more.

Perfect Combination of Hops and Malt

One of the things that sets Nimble Giant apart from other double IPAs on the market is its perfect balance between the hops and the malt. The hops are the star of the show, but the maltiness of the beer lends it a complexity that is moreish and satisfying. The beer has a wonderfully creamy mouthfeel which works perfectly with the flavors, and makes it a great brew to savor.

The Verdict

Overall, the Nimble Giant Double IPA is another homerun for Tröegs. It’s a little bit different from their other beers, but not so much that it feels out of place in their lineup. It’s perfect for hop-loving beer drinkers who are looking for something with a little more complexity. If you’re looking for a great imperial IPA that is balanced and delicious, definitely grab a bottle of Nimble Giant. Your taste buds will thank you.
