Brad Shell and the folks at The Unknown Brewing Company often share their newly released beers with us for our sampling and they did so again with the newly released Scratch ‘N Sniff. This aromatic IPA is made with 7 hop additions thrown in at special timed editions to create flavor, a nose full of goodness, and light bitterness. This new brew, available on draft in the taproom and in 12-ounce cans throughout NC, SC and Georgia, is an Aromatic IPA with an ABV 4.8%. Unknown says the beer was created using a technique called “hop bursting”, a process which results in a whole lot of wonderful citrus aromatics and flavors without being the hop bitterness of some IPA’s. “Please don’t wear out your fingers by scratching the glass this beer is in,” says Brad, “Instead let your nose and tongue do the real work!”
