Hazy-O!, our new Hazy IPA, is made with FOUR types of oats and it's oooohh so juicy!

Wednesday, September 30, 2020

2021 is still months away, but we’ve got an exciting peak into the future! This Friday, fans can get a sneak-peek taste of our newest innovation, Hazy-O!, before it hits shelves early next year!

'Hazy-O!' is a 7.1% ABV Hazy IPA brewed with FOUR different types of oats: malted oats, providing cloudiness; rolled oats, creating a silky mouthfeel; naked oats, providing a subtle toasted and nutty flavor; and oat milk to amplify the haze and add to its silky soft, creamy mouthfeel for a beer that is incredibly juicy & hop-forward while being smooth and super-sessionable! To ensure we harnessed all the goodness of oat milk within Hazy-O!, we enlisted the help of oat milk scientists from Elmhurst in New York to finalize the beer’s recipe. This refreshing brew starts with literally truckloads of oats & wheat, which gives it its a full body, then it’s liberally dry-hopped with a blend of Citra, Mosaic, Azacca, Centennial, Simcoe, BRU-1, Mandarina Bavaria and Sabro hops to deliver juicy tropical notes of citrus, mango and pineapple. Hazy-O! drinks like a 5% ABV session sipper, even though it is a 7.1% ABV powerhouse!

"Finding true points of differentiation in the Hazy IPA style category isn’t easy and we think we hit the bullseye with Hazy-O!" says Dogfish Head founder and brewer Sam Calagione. 

But how 'bout that label art though?! The target-and-bullseye on the can label is more than just a sweet design - it illustrates the story of the drinking experience! The four-ringed bullseye is a nod to the four unique types of oats we packed this brew with. This foundation-of-four, along with our special blend of hop varieties, are right on target.

This juicy new brew is making its debut this Friday, October 2 at 11 a.m. - it'll be available in 16 oz. cans for $18/4-pack from our emPOURium in Rehoboth, and on draft at Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats and our Tasting Room & Kitchen in Milton for a limited-time only! But keep an eye out for this smooth sipper early next year as it will be nationally released in 12 oz. cans!
