Wayward Brewing have been tweaking, refining and perfecting their hazy IPA game for a few years now, evolving the process with every new beer on a quest to produce their dream iteration of the style.
Now, after countless brews and many many requests for a year-round addition to the Wayward portfolio – Wayward are very excited to present their brand new Hazy IPA.
This super juicy IPA boasts a smooth, pillowy mouthfeel, perfectly balanced with big hop additions of Citra, Simcoe and Sabro. Low in bitterness, Wayward Hazy IPA is bursting with huge tropical flavours that’ll keep you sipping all day long.
Wayward’s Head Brewer Shaun Blissett says:
“We’ve been brewing hazy and juicy IPAs as limited releases for a while now, but we don’t see too many hazy IPAs sitting in core ranges. We have always had a strong and varied core range at Wayward and a solid, sessionable hazy IPA fits in perfectly as the latest addition.
“Like a lot of the beers we enjoy producing at Wayward, hazy IPAs are the modern interpretation of a classic beer style. They have a fuller body that allow us to showcase hop flavours in the best possible way.
“We’ve used Citra, Simcoe and Sabro hop varieties in this beer to create a perfectly balanced juicy IPA. We’ve been using Citra as a dominant hop for a while in our hazy beers – it presents those big tropical flavours we expect from this style. Simcoe brings a touch of those piney resin notes that compliment the Citra. We trialled a lot of batches to get the balance between these two hops and our final hop, Sabro, just right. The tropical coconut flavours of Sabro are dialled right back so that they support the Citra and Simcoe and add another layer to the beer.
