Paso Robles, CA – From the spirit behind Mind Haze comes a new trio of psychedelic flavors with the launch of “Mind Haze Tropical Hazy Mixed Pack”.
With this new mixed pack, Firestone Walker’s Mind Haze IPA experience now includes three new hazy IPAs – Tiki Smash, Hopical Crush and Citrus Cyclone, all of which feature exotic reinterpretations of the original Mind Haze.
“Mind Haze canvas lends itself perfectly to different hops, fresh flavors and new ideas,” said master brewer Matt Brynildson. “This mixed pack gave us the opportunity to be creative and have fun reinventing the possibilities of flavors. Each beer is built on the main Mind Haze recipe, but they also come with their own tropical-inspired touches.
The Mind Haze Tropical Hazy Mixed Pack is rolled out to all Firestone Walker markets in 12 pack sizes (12 ounce cans) and is also available in every Firestone Walker location. In just over two years, Mind Haze IPA became Firestone Walker’s best-selling beer alongside the 805. The brewery also released Double Mind Haze IPA earlier this year.
The Mind Haze Tropical Hazy Mixed Pack includes the following three new beers:
Mind Haze “Tiki Smash” IPA:
Tiki Smash IPA offers a combination of tiki-inspired flavors, born from pure hops and freshly roasted coconut. The original Mind Haze hops, including Azacca, are now joined by the Motueka and Sabro hops. The Azacca portion has been increased to amplify the pineapple’s sense of tropical character, while Sabro offers its complementary coconut qualities. “We use an elaborate system to introduce freshly roasted coconut for a smooth and subtle extraction,” said Brynildson. “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 offers a double-hop explosion of tropical flavors inspired by Mai Tai, including pineapple and orange. This hearty hoppy beer begins by accentuating the original Mind Haze hop blend with the cultivar Strata, which offers bold, tangy fruit and a hint of cannabis-like character. The beer is then dry-hopped twice with twice as much hops as usual, for a total of over five pounds of hops per barrel. The resulting beer features massive flavors that will make you dream of Mai Tais on a distant island.
Mind Haze IPA “Citrus Cyclone”:
Citrus Cyclone IPA delivers a mind-blowing taste of all citrus flavors under the sun, finished with a kiss of real tangerine. The base beer is co-fermented with fresh California mandarins. This base is mixed with a separate batch of dry-hopped Mind Haze, then complemented with a final touch of tangerine to enhance the citrus top note. Along the way, the Mandarina hops add a distinctive orange character. The result is a remarkably refreshing Mind Haze experience.
