MILTON, Delaware— Spring has officially sprung, and Dogfish Head Craft Brewery is celebrating the season with three new beer options, Utopias Barrel-Aged 120 Minute IPA, Mandarin & Mango Crush and the Off-Centered Variety Pack. Each of these off-centered packages is now making its way from coast-to-coast. Folks can track them down using Dogfish HeadFish Finder.
“Warm weather and beer go hand-in-hand. There’s no better feeling than being outside and enjoying a tasty brew as you revel in Mother Nature’s goodness,” said Dogfish Head Founder & Brewer, Sam Calagione.
“Typically, we tend to associate light and fruity beers – like our Mandarin & Mango Crush – with the spring and summer seasons, but there’s always a place for a big, bold sipper – like Utopias Barrel-Aged 120 Minute IPA, even during the warmer times of year. With these new product launches and the debut of our Off-Centered Variety Pack, we’re giving folks a whole gamut of drinking options, each of which is uniquely suited to kick off the spring sipping season!”
MANDARIN & MANGO CRUSH (6.0% ABV):
The second beer out of this year’s Off-Centered Art Series, Dogfish Head’s annual collection of four beers featuring artwork by a collaborating artist,Mandarin & Mango Crush is a citrusy fruit beer brewed with boatloads of mandarin oranges and mangos. The beer equivalent of the Mid-Atlantic region’s iconic “Crush Cocktail,” a delicious elixir featuring fresh, hand-crushed fruit juice, Mandarin & Mango Crush features artwork by Natalya Balnova, a New York-based illustrator, designer and printmaker, and this year’s Off-Centered Art Series artist. Lightly sweet with a refreshing citrusy tartness and a crisp, dry finish, Mandarin & Mango Crush was first released in 2022, but this year, it will make its debut in 6pk/12oz cans.
UTOPIAS BARREL-AGED 120 MINUTE IPA (15-20% ABV):
Dogfish Head’s iconic 120 Minute IPA is an imperial IPA continuously hopped with a copious amount of high-alpha American hops throughout the boil and then dry-hopped with even more hops for an unfiltered and abundantly hoppy brew. A new iteration of 120 Minute IPA, Utopias Barrel-Aged 120 Minute IPA takes the brewery’s fan-favorite beer and ages it for a year in freshly emptied Utopias barrels from Samuel Adams. The resulting deep copper-colored beer is bursting with sweet, almost candy-like aromas of citrus and pine, complemented by hoppy, resiny flavors and a lingering bitterness.
THE OFF-CENTERED VARIETY PACK:
Featuring a delicious mix of four off-centered beer styles, Dogfish HeadOff-Centered Variety Pack (12pk/12oz cans) including three cans of each of the following beers.
- 60 Minute IPA (6.0% ABV): A surprisingly sessionable, continually hopped IPA delivering pungent, citrusy, grassy hop flavors without being crushingly bitter.
- SeaQuench Ale (4.9% ABV): A session sour mash-up of a crisp Kolsch, a salty Gose and a tart Berliner Weiss brewed in sequence with black limes, sour lime juice and sea salt.
- Blue Hen Pilsner (4.8% ABV): A crisp and refreshing pilsner brewed with only four ingredients – water, hops, yeast and Delaware-grown and malted barley.
- Citrus Squall (8.0% ABV): The perfect storm of a double golden ale and a paloma cocktail brewed with grapefruit juice, blue agave nectar, lime peels and a touch of sea salt.
