A Note on This Beer
Contrary to urban legend, Walt Disney did not have his body frozen using Cryogenic technology — but BuckleDown Brewing did use this technology to pack today’s Clencher 2 Double IPA full of fruity hop goodness!
Tucked away in an inconspicuously small town in Illinois, the brewers at BuckleDown are like mad scientists, but with beer! Their careful experimentation with Cryogenic technology made their limited-release Clencher series a knock-out with thirsty locals.
This is your chance to taste the newest, most innovative technology in the craft brewing scene. Bring a few cans of this flavor-packed, cryo-hopped brew to your next get together and you’ll have a reason to geek out with your beer buds.
Without getting too Bill Nye on you, the Cryogenic separation process extracts pure lupulin powder from hop cones. This highly concentrated “hop dust” is loaded with all the resinous oils that give IPAs their fruity flavors. Using the powder allows for massive additions of hoppy flavor with minimal plant material to create brighter, cleaner tasting beer.
Brewed with a unique medley of Cryo Citra, Belma, Simcoe, and El Dorado Hops, Clencher 2 is bursting with intense hoppiness! Fruity aromas of berry and manadrin orange zest swell from the honey gold pour. Notes of pine resin balance with sweet mango and pineapple for a smooth, juicy sip. Slightly hazy from the addition of Flaked Oats, the 8.7% ABV drifts away with a soft mouthfeel.
You don't have to get yourself frozen for 100 years to see the future of craft beer — it's here right now with bold, innovative brews like Clencher 2.
