From the minds behind Mind Haze comes a psychedelic new trifecta of flavors with the launch of the Mind Haze “Tropical Hazy Mixed Pack,” which is now rolling out to all of our markets in 12-pack (12-ounce can) formats and is available at each Firestone Walker location. Locate it near you here.
That’s right, we are tripling down on our Mind Haze IPA experience with three new exotic variations–Tiki Smash, Hopical Crush, and Citrus Cyclone–all of which represent distinctive reinterpretations of our original Mind Haze IPA.
“The Mind Haze canvas lends itself perfectly to different hops, fresh flavors, and new ideas,” says Brewmaster Matt Brynildson. “This mixed pack gave us the opportunity to get creative and have fun reimagining the flavor possibilities. Each beer is built upon the main Mind Haze recipe, but they also come with their own tropical-inspired twists.
You may recall that we launched Double Mind Haze IPA earlier this year, and this is the next step in the journey that we call Mind Haze.
Mind Haze “Tiki Smash” IPA
Tiki Smash IPA delivers a tiki-inspired flavor combination born of pure hops and freshly toasted coconut. Original Mind Haze hops including Azacca are now joined by Motueka and Sabro hops. The Azacca portion has been increased to amplify the sense of pineapple tropical character, while Sabro delivers its complementary coconut qualities. “We use an elaborate system to introduce freshly toasted coconut for a smooth, subtle extraction,” Matt says. “The resulting beer showcases the special synergy of natural coconut with the tropical hop flavors of Mind Haze.”
Mind Haze “Hopical Crush” IPA
Hopical Crush IPA delivers a dry-hopped explosion of tropical Mai Tai-inspired flavors including pineapple and orange. This copiously hopped beer begins by accentuating the original Mind Haze hop blend with the Strata cultivar, which offers up bold pungent fruit and a touch of dank cannabis-like character. The beer is then dry hopped with twice the amount of hops than usual–ultimately totaling more than five pounds of hops per barrel. The resulting beer exhibits massive flavors that will have you dreaming of Mai Tais on a faraway island.
Mind Haze “Citrus Cyclone” IPA
Citrus Cyclone IPA delivers a head-spinning taste of all the citrus flavors under the sun, finished with a kiss of real tangerine. The base beer is co-fermented with fresh California tangerines. This base is blended back with a separate lot of dry-hopped Mind Haze, then finished off with a final dash of tangerine to elevate the citrusy top note. Along the way, the Mandarina hop adds a distinctive orange character. The result is a remarkably refreshing Mind Haze experience.
So there it is–let your mind wander to faraway places and enjoy the head-tripping flavors of the Mind Haze “Tropical Hazy Mixed Pack.” Use our Beer Finder to locate our new mixed packs near you.
