CANarchy Launches Hazy Edition of IPA Mixed 12-pack

CANarchy Craft Brewery Collective (Longmont, Colorado) has officially announced that a new Hazy Edition of its Coast to Coast IPA Mixed Pack will debut during the summer of 2021.

Compiled to give hopheads a “cross-continental . . . supergroup” of “some of CANarchy’s hoppiest, haziest offerings,” the Coast to Coast IPA Mixed 12-pack – Hazy Edition contains the following lupulin-laced goodness from Three Weavers Brewing Company (Inglewood, California), Oskar Blues Brewery (Longmont, Colorado), Deep Ellum Brewing Company (Dallas, Texas) and Cigar City Brewing (Tampa, Florida) – descriptions sourced directly from CANarchy’s press release:

  • Cloud City by Three Weavers Brewing Company (6.5% ABV): This hazy IPA is soft on the palate and blazing bright with aromas of peaches, mangoes, and sunny citrus fruits. Take a trip with us to Cloud City, where the forecast is always juicy with a chance of haze.
  • Thick Haze by Oskar Blues Brewery (7% ABV): Not for casual fans of the hazy IPA style, Thick Haze is unfiltered to let flavorful, aromatic hop particles run the show. It’s nebulous with nom, obfuscated with “oh baby” and undeniably Thick with Haze.
  • Manic Confidence by Deep Ellum Brewing Company (6.5% ABV): Manic Confidence is a hot tropical island vacation dissected and reconstructed in the form of a refreshingly juicy craft brew. Sunny, sweet bitterness of Galaxy, Enigma, Comet, Strata, Citra and Idaho 7 hops floods the taste receptors, resulting in a salivating joy that leaves you craving more.
  • Fancy Papers by Cigar City Brewing (6.5% ABV): With notes of mango and tangerine, this double dry hopped Juicy IPA was developed with the same kind of craftsmanship and artistry that can be found in labels printed on fancy papers and applied to the lids of cigar boxes of yesteryear.

The Coast to Coast IPA Mixed Pack – Hazy Edition contains three 12 oz. cans of each of the offerings listed above.

The Coast to Coast IPA Mixed Pack – Hazy Edition is rolling out now and will be available for a limited time. You can expect to find this Mixed 12-pack of 12 oz. cans at craft beer-focused retailers located in select markets nationwide. Prost!

Oskar Blues Brewery Rolls Out Thick Haze New England-Style IPA

Oskar Blues Brewery (Longmont, Colorado) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of Thick Haze New England-style IPA in early October 2020.

Basically the result of “pumping insane amounts of hops into an unfiltered, hand-crafted IPA,” Thick Haze is a Hazy/Juicy India Pale Ale dry-hopped with Galaxy, Cashmere, Calypso and Eureka hops “at an almost supernatural amplitude.” Coming in at 7% ABV, Thick Haze is a “giant hop-ness monster of a beer . . . [that] rolls onto the palate with intense flavors of pineapple, melon and mango” and finishes with “aftershocks of . . . citrus notes of grapefruit juice, tangerine and lemon peel.”

“We crafted Thick Haze to be the ultimate beast of a New England IPA – a full-blown freakout for hops,” said Oskar Blues Head Brewer Juice Drapeau. “We layered the hop profile to maximize all of the flavors we are diggin’ right now – tropical fruit, melon and citrus.”

Thick Haze is rolling out now and will hang around for an undisclosed amount of time. You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer-focused establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Colorado, North Carolina, Texas and throughout the rest of Oskar Blues Brewery’s distribution network. Prost!
