Hood River, Oregon – Fresh from Full Sail Brewing Co. is a new, seasonal brew in their Strong Current Double IPA Series, Lazy Summer Haze, just in time for summer days on the river, the mountain, or in your own backyard.
Syrupy and bitter Double IPA? Heck No! “Our goal was a distinctly tropical DIPA that drinks like a pale – I think we hit it”, says Full Sail Brewmaster Greg Doss. “It’s spectacularly smooth and crushable at 8.5%.” Oats, Wheat and 2 Row malt are fermented with our proprietary yeast culture creating the perfect hazy base for our hop additions. A big charge of Sabro hops adds hints coconut and tangerine. We followed that with additions of Mosaic and Ekuanot hops to layer subtle but complex notes of citrus, mango and melon.
Our Strong Current Series celebrates our sense of place where we’re constantly inspired by the great outdoors and the environment that provide amazing recreation and one of our most treasured natural resources, the pure water that flows from the springs on Mt. Hood to our brewery and beyond. Like summer, this seasonal brew won’t last, so get out there, drink up, and have some fun. Available June – September in 4-packs of 16 oz cans and limited draft. ABV 8.5%, 35 IBUs.
Up next in the Strong Current series will be the Full Sail favorite Wreck the Halls bringing hoppy holidays to all, October to December.
