Press Release: Great Divide Brewing Company Releases Hazy IPA
DENVER – July 17, 2017 – Great Divide Brewing Company is introducing Hazy IPA, a cloudy IPA with a juicy mix of citrus aroma and nuanced fruit characters. The inspiration to create this style of beer came from the brewery’s continuous effort to create innovative beer within a changing craft beer landscape.
“Tastes change which makes sense why beer drinkers are looking for new types of IPAs,” said Brian Dunn founder of Great Divide Brewing Company. “We’ve had a great run of big, piney, citrusy IPAs but I believe that beer drinkers are also looking for IPAs with less bitterness.”
And at almost six pounds per barrel of Citra, Mosaic, and El Dorado hops, this beer is just that—a juicy, hop bomb that delivers the bitterness without the bite. After months of testing variations of Hazy IPA on the pilot system, this recipe represents the best of the best and is the clear crowd favorite. The flavor opens towards tangerine and lime zest with notes of tropical papaya and mango, before a slight hop-bitter finish that is rounded by a hint of ripe strawberries.
The brewery has kept this release draft only with a shorter shelf life of 30 days to ensure that beer drinkers experience Hazy IPA at its best. ”If you find this beer on tap, it will be fresh,” said Dunn.
The beer is available at the Great Divide Tap Room and Barrel Bar, as well as at select Colorado bars and restaurants.
