Received: Worthy Brewing Stoker Red Ale

Worthy Brewing‘s latest arrived for me over the weekend, their newly canned Stoker Red Ale—the latest addition to their flagship lineup. Here’s a blurb from the press release which issued last week:

Several months ago, Worthy made the hard decision to discontinue their Eruption Imperial Red. Brewmaster Dustin Kellner took this opportunity to create a more sessionable, judiciously juiced red inspired by its retired cousin.

For bittering, Worthy’s Brewers added Nugget and CTZ. For aroma and flavor, they added Oregon grown Cascade and Centennial Hops and topped it off with Mandarina Bavaria, a German hop whose mother is Cascade. The final numbers come in at 6.6% ABV and 66 IBU.

I’ve had this on tap already, and I’m definitely interested in seeing how the packaged version compares.
