New Dogfish/Sierra Nevada Life & Limb Collaboration ‘Rhizing Bines’ Imperial IPA Coming Feb. ’13

In 2009, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery and Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. collaborated for the first time to create an American-style strong ale called only “Life & Limb.” Today, Dogfish announced the next Life & Limb collaboration brew from it and Sierra Nevada, “Rhizing Bines,” which will be an 8% ABV Imperial IPA. Rhizing Bines is expected to be released in February 2013.

Some details on the IPA from Dogfish:

On the hot side, Rhizing Bines will go through Dogfish’s signature continual-hopping process with floral and citrusy Bravo hops. On the cold side, it will be dry-hopped with an experimental varietal so new it doesn’t yet have a name, just a number: Hop 644. A component of Sierra Nevada’s aroma-boosting Torpedo system will make a pit-stop in Delaware for dry-hopping duty before it heads to Sierra’s new North Carolina brewery.

To celebrate Sierra Nevada planting East Coast roots, Dogfish Head tracked down a Carolina heirloom wheat grown and milled at Anson Mills. The soft red winter wheat contributes subtle sweet and nutty notes to this hop-forward ale.

The first Life & Limb strong ale was brewed at Sierra Nevada’s Chico, Calif., brewery, and Rhizing Bines will be brewed at Dogfish’s Milton, Delaware brewery.

I had the first Life & Limb brew a couple of times last year, and it was decent. American strong ale is not one of my favorite beer styles, but I love me some IPAs. Dogfish makes fantastic IPAs, and Sierra makes some quality hoppy brews—namely its Northern and Southern Hemisphere Harvest Ales—so I’m anxious to get my hands on this new collaboration. February 2013 can’t get here soon enough.

I’m a huge fan of all three parties involved, and I already a set of Spiegelau Beer Connoisseur glasses. (I love them.) And I already ordered a pair of these new glasses.  To be honest, they’re kind of awkard and ugly looking.

  5. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The text in your article seem to be running off the
    screen in Firefox. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to
    let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon.

    Cheers
