We continue to experiment with interesting styles here in the Brewery in Bagenalstown with the release of White Haze IPA, a fruit forward, hazy IPA that pours yellow/gold and is explosively aromatic.
‘White Haze IPA’ delivers a soft mouthfeel and refreshing tropical fruit flavours from the addition of Citra, Amarillo and Mosaic hops.
Seamus O’Hara, our founder and CEO commented on the new brew,
“We are not ones to follow every trend but we felt it was time to tackle a hazy IPA. There is almost as much diversity in this style as there is in craft beer generally but the one common denominator is that soft mouthfeel and juicy flavour. In developing White Haze we played around with a few different hop bills but if we were going to do a juicy hazy IPA we always wanted to have Mosaic involved, we just love the punch of grapefruit pith it gives a beer. Like most of our beers drinkability was an important consideration and we strived for a fruity but balanced beer that is both accessible and rewarding. While White Haze has lots of soft juicy flavour I think it has just enough bittering balance to make a second bottle tempting!”
The Brewing Process:
The use of Vermont Ale yeast contributes a fruity ester profile of peaches and light citrus that complements the hop profile. The beer is cold conditioned and unfiltered, leaving a residual hazy hue.
The body is a golden hazy yellow with a white head.
Citrus notes, grapefruit, orange peel and tropical fruit on the nose.
A full bodied IPA with a creamy texture and rich tropical fruit flavours finishing with a slight bitterness.
The Food Pairing:
Makes an excellent pairing for spicy dishes such as Thai green curry, steak and crisp chicken salads. This beer is a perfect accompaniment to blue cheeses such as Cashel Blue.
White Haze will be available in select independent bars, off-licences and retailers with a RRP €3.35 for 500ml bottle.
