Offshoot Beer Co. (Orange County, California) has announced that it will release Relax [it’s just a hazy IPA] this month as its first Year-Round offering and first beer to be available beyond the brewery.
Developed to be The Bruery’s hop-focused brewing project, Offshoot Beer Co. has produced 20 limited release hoppy beers since its inception in April of 2017. These lupulin loaded IPAs, Double IPAs and Triple IPAs have only been available for purchase directly from the brewery and exclusively to members on its Interest List” . . . until now.
Relax [it’s just a hazy IPA] is rolling out this month as Offshoot Beer Co.’s first offering that will experience limited distribution. With Citra, Centennial, Simcoe and Amarillo hops filling out the hop bill, this new Year-Round features “fruity, tropical and citrusy notes to complement the round, soft mouthfeel of a hazy IPA.” Hop lovers can expect Relax [it’s just a hazy IPA] (6.8% ABV) to deliver an experience that “embraces the new way to enjoy IPA – unfiltered, fresh and full of hop flavor and aromatics… without the bitterness to stand in the way of kicking back with a juicy beer.”
“Offshoot Beer Co. has allowed us to branch off in new directions, continue our passion for experimentation and explore the art of developing hop-forward beers,” said Patrick Rue, founder of The Bruery and its hoppy offshoot, and one of just 16 individuals to earn the title of Master Cicerone®. “Now such a pursuit will be within arm’s reach for fans of independent craft beer from coast-to-coast looking to relax with a fresh can of hazy IPA any day of the week.”
“After nearly a year of developing special releases, we couldn’t be more excited to dial in a fresh new beer that’s available year-round to even more fans,” added Rue. “If you’ve been wondering what it would taste like if The Bruery made a hazy IPA, this is it. You won’t find a more approachable and accessible 4-pack on the market.”
Relax [it’s just a hazy IPA] will debut at the Tasting Rooms at The Bruery and Bruery Terreux on February 2, and it will then enter limited distribution beginning the week of February 5. You can expect to find this new Year-Round available in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer establishments located in Southern California, Northern California, Washington, D.C., and Virginia.
