Stone Brewing (Escondido, California) has officially announced that Stone Hazy IPA will join the brewery’s Year-Round portfolio in mid-August 2021.
Carefully crafted to be Stone Brewing’s hazy brew that is “most conventional in style, yet astounding in execution,” Stone Hazy IPA is a Hazy/Juicy India Pale Ale that has “El Dorado and Azacca . . . hops imparting vivid orange, lemon and melon flavors [while] Sabro adds intense tropical mango and pineapple, creating memorable complexity.” Coming in at 6.7% ABV, Stone Hazy IPA boasts “a deep golden opaque look” and is an “absolute juicy citrus bomb of a beer.”
Kris Ketcham, Senior Manager of Brewing & Innovation – Liberty Station, and lead mastermind behind this brew explains, “We wanted a beer that still retained the juicy goodness of a blended East Coast and West Coast IPA style, but with a smoother body, lower bitterness, and lower ABV. We trialed many beers in this style, and although several were really good, it was this one that blew everyone away. It was a big hit at our taprooms.”
Stone Hazy IPA is launching this week with availability in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft. You can expect to find this new Year-Round offering at craft beer-focused establishments located in Alabama, Florida, California, Virginia and throughout the rest of Stone Brewing’s nationwide distribution network. Prost!
