Bell’s Brewery (Comstock, Michigan) has officially announced that Bell’s Official Hazy IPA, the newest addition to the brewery’s Year-Round portfolio, is rolling out now across the brewery’s distribution network.
Combining “two of the styles [Bell’s Brewery is] known for best” (think American IPA | Two Hearted Ale and American Wheat Ale | Oberon Ale), Bell’s Official Hazy IPA is a double dry-hopped India Pale Ale that showcases “pungent American hops and delicious wheat malt.” Thanks in large part to a hop bill boasting Mosaic, Citra, Azacca, Amarillo and El Dorado hops, this Hazy IPA offers “complex peach, stone fruit and tropical notes with a dry finish and balanced bitterness.” Setting itself apart so that it is “not . . . confused with New England IPAs”, Bell’s Official Hazy IPA (6.4% ABV) is “a refined beer for those who love hops AND for those who prefer wheat beers.”
Bell’s Official Hazy IPA is shipping now with availability in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles, 6-packs of 12 oz. cans, 4-packs of 16 oz. cans, 12-packs of 12 oz. cans (Michigan only), and on draft. You can expect to find this new Year-Round brew at craft beer-focused retailers, bars and restaurants located in Alabama, Florida, Michigan and throughout the rest of the brewery’s expansive distribution territory. Prost!
