Beer Release: 'Heavy Cloud' Hazy IPA Joins our Year-Round Lineup
This week we're proud to announce that we're growing our already-robust core lineup with the addition of a new full-time IPA.
Unless you have been living under a rock for the past few years, you've likely tried, or at least heard of our rotating hazy beer + art series, Project X, but Heavy Cloud distinguishes itself as a more accessible take on the style with a softer palate and more delicate aroma - attributes that will surely appeal to those seeking the 12oz 6pk format.
“We spent a lot of time formulating this recipe – collaborating between our two breweries through multiple tasting panels to come up with something we all would be really happy with. Knowing it was going to be a full-time beer meant it needed to be really accessible to all types of beer drinkers. We weren’t looking to create something niche. We were looking to make a go-to Hazy: Something mellow and sessionable, with a slightly lower ABV, but with the hoppiness that IPA fans have come to expect. ”
-Chris Baker – Director of Brewing Ops, Mother Earth Brew Co.
The hallmarks of Heavy Cloud are in its hop bill, which boasts an all-star trifecta in Galaxy, Citra, & Sabro. Stone fruit and melon are at the core of its flavor profile. Its elegant aroma and soft, peachy appearance, is welcoming at the least, but hypnotic at its best.
Another distinguishing characteristic of the beer is the absence of lactose to create the full body as is typical with the style. Instead, we rely on dextrins - residual, long chain sugars that add body without the sweetness or allergenic effects of lactose.
Heavy Cloud rolls out this month in almost all major markets where our beer is carried. Use our interactive Beer Finder to locate it nearest you. Updated weekly through the month of March.
