Mellgren's IPA Single Cut Batch 1 in July of 2015, as well as Mellgren's IPA Single Cut Batch 2 and Mellgren's IPA White Portion in February of 2016. That was followed up with a product with a wider release - Hope and Glory IPA Snus in October of 2016. Now, Snus.biz is taking a stab at making an IPA snus with their new Kobza IPA Snus!
Lagunitas IPA, a personal favorite of mine. I don't have any in the house, so I'm actually pairing this with Jai Alai IPA, my personal favorite IPA. I figured it would be good to test it's pairing ability with a different beer anyway.
When it comes to this snus, the flavor description says, "The flavor was inspired by Lagunitas IPA - rich, citrusy, spicy, and with a pronounced hop bitterness, along with a floral aroma and caramel aftertaste. To add Ukranian character, Transcarpathian hops were used, along with honey from wild bee colonies in Halyčyna. Brazilian Bragança, Turkish Basma, Moldavian Semioriental and Ukrainian Virginia tobaccos were used for a rich, complex tobacco base. The snus was aged in bourbon oak barrels." Each can comes with 50 grams of lös snus, just like the good old days! The nicotine strength is between 8mg/g to 14mg/g.
So whether you love beer, or don't love beer, this is a must try. It's a complex, tasty snus!
