A Note on This Beer
Would you rather have a glass of fresh-squeezed orange juice, or a glass of concentrated juice mush? I know which one I’d rather drink, and it ain’t the one sold in the frozen foods aisle at the store!
But, getting that fresh-pressed, bright and tangy glass of OJ is hard work. If only there was an easier way to get some unbridled OJ flavor into our glasses...
Oh wait! Heist Brewery has a way, AND (bonus!) it’s in the form of a crushable IPA!
They didn’t freeze, press, or squeeze any citrus fruits to make their Not From Concentrate Hazy IPA, yet it’s still a full-on orange juicebomb.
By heavily double dry-hopping with Galaxy, Mosaic, Citra, and Motueka, the brewers coaxed out sweet smacks of OJ tang mingled with a subtle twist of lemon zest. Each sip drinks clean and ultra thirst-quenching.
And, with almost no bitterness to speak of and piles of fresh fruit flavor, you could pour it into a tumbler and fool your unsuspecting buddies into thinking it IS juice!
Though, they’ll probably catch onto you after going back for a second glass. The highly drinkable nature of this (never frozen) OJ IPA masks that 6.8% ABV flawlessly, but it is definitely still there!
