Oskar Blues Brewery Releases Can-O-Bliss Hazy IPA

Can-O-Bliss Hazy IPA

Oskar Blues Brewery has released its Can-O-Bliss Hazy IPA, the newest creation in the Can-O-Bliss IPA series of brews.

Can-O-Bliss Hazy IPA will be distributed nationally on draft and in 6-packs and 12-packs of 12-oz. cans.

Described by Oskar Blues Brewery as “a hazed-out and hopped-up IPA, Can-O-Bliss Hazy IPA (7.2% ABV) is brewed with an unprecedented combination of super dank strata, aromatic cashmere, quirky enigma, wine-like Hallertau Blanc and peachy-pine Eureka hops.”

The unusual combination of five primo hop varietals results in a hop-forward beer packed with flavors of peach, nectarine, cantaloupe and white wine, the company says.

“This beer doesn’t set out to be a ‘New England’ style,” says Oskar Blues Head of Brewing Operations Tim Matthews. “The bitterness is forward, but elegant. The mouthfeel is thorough without being fluffy. The beer focuses on intense hop loads that are extracted to create a long-lasting hop haze.”

“Most hazy IPAs go for strong, aggressive citrus and popular dank hops like Mosaic and Galaxy, but this hop profile offers more nuance and subtlety than most,” said Oskar Blues Lyons Head Brewer, Juice Drapeau. “It’s truly hop-driven, with soft, fruity undertones, making it perfect for summertime IPA swigging.”

Can-O-Bliss Hazy IPA follows Can-O-Bliss Tropical IPA, which was released in late 2018. The series focuses on highlighting new and experimental hops and unusual hop combinations. The 2019 series will conclude with the release of Can-O-Bliss Citrus IPA in the fall.

Can-O-Bliss Hazy IPA will be on shelves nationwide starting in May.

Founded by Dale Katechis in 1997 in Lyons, Colorado, Oskar Blues Brewery launched the craft-beer-in-a-can movement with their hand-canned flagship brew, Dale’s Pale Ale. Today, Oskar Blues operates breweries in Colorado, North Carolina and Texas featuring Dale’s Pale Ale as the nation’s No. 3 top-selling craft can 6-pack at U.S. supermarkets. Oskar Blues is available nationwide in the U.S. and in more than 20 countries.
