Oskar Blues Brewery has released Hazy Blues Juicy IPA (7.0% ABV) in homage to juke joints and jive roadhouses.
Hazy Blues features Citra, Galaxy and Strata hops. It is available now nationwide on draft, in single-serve 19.2-oz. cans, and in 6-packs of 12-oz. cans.
Oskar Blues Brewery began in 1997 as a Cajun-inspired restaurant and blues music venue in Lyons, CO. Live music featured in the early years and remains a constant today at Oskar Blues taprooms in Colorado, North Carolina, and Texas.
“Getting down to a funky jam while crushing a well-crafted beer at the end of a work week — that’s the vibe we grew out of,” says Oskar Blues Senior Marketing Manager Aaron Baker. “Foggy stages, clinking glassware, moving feet — Hazy Blues Juicy IPA is the beer for those times. It’s hopped-up and juicy enough to keep both the band and the crowd stoked.”
Hazy Blues Juicy IPA is the haziest nationally distributed IPA Oskar Blues Brewery has produced to date, the brewery says. The trio of fruity and juicy hop varieties produce flavors of passionfruit, strawberries, citrus and peach, with a pillowy mouthfeel.
This follows the release of Double Dale’s Imperial IPA celebrating the 20th anniversary of Dale’s Pale Ale.
