Daniel L. Jacob & Co. introduces Fresh Haze IPA from Deschutes Brewery. Deschutes Brewery’s newest IPA is hazy with a chance of obsession and is this week’s DLJ Beer of the Week. A hazy twist on your main squeeze, this juice bomb explodes with orange citrus and a soft malt body. The flavor explodes in your mouth with notes of orange citrus sweetness and a soft malt body. Carrying both citrus and tropical fruit from Mandarina, Amarillo and Simcoe hops…OJ for days.
Moved by the wild fan love for Fresh Squeezed IPA, Deschutes Brewery will use this brew to build what will be a “Fresh Family” of beers, designed to deliver more succulent beers across a spectrum of styles.
Fresh Squeezed IPA’s popularity inspired the innovation team at Deschutes to jump into the hazy IPA ring that is currently sweeping the craft world. Brewers used the state of the art pilot brewery and brewhouses at the Bend and Portland, Oregon pubs to test flavor profiles they considered great enough to stand under the company’s name.
Deschutes Brewery overlooks the wild and scenic Deschutes River in Bend, Oregon, home base to their adventurous, award-winning lineup of pioneering beers. Deschutes Brewery is a family and employee-owned company that has become the cornerstone of Central Oregon’s legacy craft brew culture.
Fresh Haze IPA delivers the citrus juiciness and sweetness of Fresh Squeezed IPA. It is hopped with generous amounts of citrus forward hops that explode with orange and tangerine. The haze is derived from an intentional selection of malts and adjuncts such as malted wheat, unmalted wheat, and flaked barley that contain haze promoting proteins. These malts, along with the purposeful use of certain brewing salts to adjust water chemistry, lend themselves to the smooth, full-bodied mouthfeel of Fresh Haze IPA.
