Mother’s Brewing Snapback
New Belgium Juicy Haze IPA is joining the brewery’s Voodoo Ranger Series to start 2018.
Let’s face it, the demand for hazy, juicy India pale ales is high, and not going away anytime soon. The brewing team at New Belgium knows this, so it’s time for a hazy Voodoo Ranger release.
Juicy Haze IPA has all the important flavor descriptors – tropical, citrusy, unfiltered. Everything hazy beers boast, but you won’t have to stand in a line to get it. The brewery combines Cascade, Centennial, Simcoe, and Nugget hops with a Hefeweizen yeast.
With more than 10 years brewing unfiltered beers and the ongoing success of our hoppy portfolio, Juicy Haze continues our tradition of pushing boundaries while making creative and innovative beers.” – Cody Reif, New Belgium Brewer

Second Self Triforce IPA debuts in January 2018.
The geekdom runs deep in this new India pale ale. Just like everyone at Beer Street Journal, Second Self co-founder Jason Santamaria is a big Legend of Zelda fan. “I’ve always wanted to do something in honor of a game that I have spent countless hours playing,” he tells us. Enter the Triforce.
Much like any release of the game, the making of Second Self Triforce IPA has taken a while. “We know hazy hop-bombs are hot right now, and I wanted something like it – just a bit cleaner,” Santamaria adds.
Six test batches and one full-scale batch later, Santamaria and co-founder Chris Doyle team turned their focus on water chemistry and an aggressive triple dry-hop. This month, Jason drops us a text – “I think I’ve got it!” The quest back to the brewery began.
Santamaria didn’t disappoint. The finished beer drinks like a hoppy session beer, but is far from it at 6.1% ABV. The result is slightly hazy and very aromatic, thanks to the Ganon-sized hops in it – Mosaic, Amarillo, and Cascade. This hoppy compliment to hours and hours of future gameplay is big on tropical fruit flavors, including mango, papaya and a hint of pineapple that finishes soft, thanks to oats and wheat.
Second Self Triforce IPA will hit shelves in 12-ounce cans as well as draft starting in January 2018.
It’s dangerous to go alone, drink this.
Hops: Mosaic, Cascade, Amarillo
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.

It’s been 7 years since Terrapin Hopsecutioner’s debut, quickly taking the number #1 seller spot just weeks after launch. According to Terrapin’s marketing director Julia Weckback, the “Killer IPA” needed a bit of an artistic touchup. The infamous executioner turtle isn’t going anywhere, or the hops he/she/it is splitting. The layout just looks cleaner and fresher.
“Our core IPAs are often on shelves together, and we wanted to ensure a cohesive brand image.” – Julia Weckback, Marketing Director
