Terrapin Beer Co. (Athens, Georgia) has officially announced that High & Hazy IPA will join its Year-Round lineup in mid-March 2020.
Brewed with a “copious amounts of wheat and flaked oats” to achieve a “soft and silky-smooth mouthfeel,” High & Hazy IPA is a Hazy/Juicy India Pale Ale “loaded with four varieties of tropical and citrus forward hops” – Amarillo, Citra, Idaho 7, and Simcoe – that were incorporated as late whirlpool and dry-hop additions. This “last minute” approach to the use of the featured hops makes it so High & Hazy IPA (5.8% ABV, 38 IBUs) has a pronounced juicy hop character in both flavor and aroma but with a “laid-back bitterness.”
