Smuttynose Brewing Introduces Two New Year-Round IPAs

SmuttynoseNewIPAsSmuttynose Brewing Company (Hampton, New Hampshire) has officially announced that it will release two new Year-Round India Pale Ales at the end of October: Whole Lotta Lupulin Double IPA and Mysterious Haze New England IPA.

After a successful transition in ownership last spring, Smuttynose Brewing Company is continuing to reshape its image and future by adding the following two hop-laden brews to its Year-Round lineup (beer descriptions sourced from a newsletter and press release issued by the brewery):

Whole Lotta Lupulin

Whole Lotta Lupulin, a Double IPA with an ABV of 8.6%, is a balanced brew that features a combination of complimentary hops including Amarillo, Citra, Centennial, and NZ Motueka. The bitterness of the hops is anchored by a sturdy malt foundation made of 2-Row Malted Barley, Wheat Malt, CaraHell, and Cara Malt. Each sip of this beer bursts with grapefruit and guava notes which fuse nicely with a floral and resinous pine aroma.

  • Style – Double IPA
  • ABV – 8.6%
  • Package – 16oz four-pack can, draft
  • Release – October 2018
  • Availability – Smuttynose Distribution Network

Mysterious Haze

Mysterious Haze is a New England style IPA that is medium bodied and double dry hopped. It explores every facet of Citra hops; the grapefruit, guava, mango notes all shine through while the aftertaste leaves hints of citrus and delicate herbs. This NEIPA comes in at 6.7% ABV, and is brewed with 2-Row Malted Barley, Wheat Malt, Oats, and CaraHell.

  • Style – New England Style IPA
  • ABV – 6.7%

“As New Hampshire’s leading craft brewery, we couldn’t be prouder of Mysterious Haze and Whole Lotta Lupulin. Our brewing team has been working hard and has delivered a New England IPA and Double IPA that meets our expectations in terms of taste and quality. I couldn’t be more pleased. It’s also quite exciting to be releasing both of these beers in a 4pack / 16-ounce format. We are really making great strides since our ownership transition that occurred in April of this year.”

Whole Lotta Lupulin and Mysterious Haze will both debut during the last week of October with a series of targeted release parties at bars and restaurants throughout New England.  These two Year-Round offerings are then scheduled to enter widespread distribution beginning the week of October 29.  You can expect to find Whole Lotta Lupulin and Mysterious Haze available in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans – “with fresh branding and label art” – at craft beer-focused establishments located in New Hampshire and throughout the rest of Smuttynose Brewing Company’s distribution footprint (click here to access the brewery’s Beer Finder).  Prost!
