Firestone Walker Brewing Company (Paso Robles, California) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of its newest Crafted Thru Hops Mixed Pack, an IPA-centric mixed 12-pack of 12 oz. cans that includes Comet – a brand new Propagator Series offering, in late December 2020.
Back again to supply you with all the hoppy goodness you could possibly want in a 12-pack, this edition of the Crafted Thru Hops Mixed 12-pack includes the following three Firestone Walker favorites while also being the only way to get your hands on cans of the latest Propagator Series release, Comet Single Hop Hazy IPA (descriptions sourced directly from the brewery’s press release):
- Propagator Series – Comet Single Hop Hazy IPA – Comet is a classic yet largely overlooked American-grown hop variety that has become a favorite of the Firestone Walker brewing team—inspiring them to create this single-hop hazy IPA that offers a bright floral citrus fruit character with hints of coconut. “During selection in Yakima Valley, we walked through a Comet hop yard and were struck by how good it looked on the bine with these big, gnarly green cones,” said Brewmaster Matt Brynildson. “Rubbing some fresh-picked hops in the field convinced us that it was worth following up, and we fell in love with the results once we started brewing with it.” ABV – 5.6%
- Mind Haze IPA – From the coast of California comes Mind Haze, a free-spirited beer made to elevate your perceptions—juicy, fresh and loaded with an imaginative array of tropical hop flavors. This is a hazy IPA done the Firestone way. Mind Haze is ultimately a beer that breaks the mold with explosive hop aromas, a luscious texture and enduring freshness. ABV – 6.2%
- Double Jack Double IPA – Famed as one of the craft world’s trailblazing double IPAs, Double Jack is back by popular demand as a limited seasonal release. In the words of Brewmaster Matt Brynildson, “We stayed very true to the original recipe and the spirit of a legendary West Coast double IPA.” The result is a massively hopped yet improbably balanced double IPA—and an enduring throwback to the freewheeling origins of the West Coast style. ABV – 9.5%
- Union Jack IPA – Huge flavor that packs a punch. This is Union Jack—an icon of the West Coast IPA style, for those who like their beer loud and proud. Union Jack is the IPA that helped blaze the trail for the revolutionary West Coast style. Named for the British Lion who cofounded the brewery, Union Jack is intensely hoppy yet eminently drinkable from start to finish. A fad-proof IPA for any hop head. ABV – 7%
This installment of the Crafted Thru Hops Mixed Pack is rolling out now and will only be available for a limited time. You can expect to find this Limited Release at craft beer-friendly retailers located in North Carolina, Texas, California and throughout the rest of Firestone Walker’s distribution footprint. Prost!
