Heavy Seas Beer (Baltimore, Maryland) has officially announced that it will introduce Hydra’s Haze, a Limited Release Hazy IPA, in January 2020.
Surfacing as “one of [Heavy Seas’] haziest beers yet,” Hydra’s Haze is a Hazy/Juicy India Pale Ale featuring a “dank aroma” and “powerful citrus finish” thanks to a hop bill comprised of “a ridiculous amount of Citra, Galaxy and Enigma hops.” Coming in at 6% ABV and 68 IBUs, Hydra’s Haze “is one monster of a beer.”
“This beer is a bit hazy from heavy use of wheat and oats,” says Heavy Seas Brewmaster, Christopher Leonard. “It has an incredible, explosive juicy, fruity, citrus aroma from employing almost 3 pounds per barrel of Citra, Galaxy, and Enigma hops. It is soft on the [palate], with a subtle bitterness but a very high hop flavor. The finish is on the dry side, with a slight lingering sweetness and floral, grapefruit trail. Everything about Hydra’s Haze screams ‘drink me’, from the striking green packaging, to the alluring foggy appearance, to the sense tingling nose. We’ve only brewed a (relatively) small amount, so make sure you get some when you see it in cans or on draft, as it will be gone before spring kicks into full bloom!”
Hydra’s Haze is scheduled to launch in January 2020 and will hang around only as long as supplies last. You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 12 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer-friendly establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Maryland and throughout the rest of Heavy Seas Beer’s distribution area. Prost!
