The “Incognito” hop process creates New Belgium Liquid Paradise IPA

New Belgium Liquid Paradise IPA

New Belgium Liquid Paradise IPA kicks off a new run of Voodoo Ranger Rotating India Pale Ales in 2019. 

Expect three different hoppy beers throughout the. year, starting with New Belgium Liquid Paradise IPA. This tropical flavor heavy IPA uses Mosaic hops that have undergone the “incognito” process. This new proprietary technique for hop processing results in a bolder hop flavor in your finished beer. Very few brewers have used hops from the Incognito method in brewing to date.

“While Mosaic hops are nothing new, the Incognito process efficiently extracts the aromatic lupulin from the plant material to offer new layers of flavor and aroma for us to play with.” – Ross Koenigs, Research and Development Brewer at New Belgium

Nugget, Azacca, and Munich hops were also added to round out the Mosaic Incognito profile. Expect “bursts of guava, mango, grapefruit and white grape” in this medium-bodied beer.

Creature Comforts Mouse Mask IPA, a nod to musician Danger Mouse

Creature Comforts Mouse Mask

Creature Comforts Mouse Mask debuts at the brewery in Athens, Georgia on January 4th.

The latest limited edition release from the team at Creature Comforts. ‘Mouse Mask’ is an India pale ale, brewed with Simcoe, Idaho 7, and Strata hops.

Per Emily Sabula, Communications Specialist with the brewery “The name of the beer is actually not a reference to Deadmau5, but it is a nod to Danger Mouse – he spent some time here in Athens, GA – he was a radio DJ at the hyper-local WUOG, remixed some Neutral Milk Hotel, spun records at Compadres, and was plugged into the vibrant music scene here in multiple ways. Mouse Mask (a name referencing that he would wear mouse costumes during sets) is an IPA & a celebration of a favorite musician of ours & the time he spent in our little town of Athens.”

Fans wanting to get their hands on this release can reserve 4-packs of Creature Comforts Mouse Mask now on the CraftCellr phone app (opens in new window).

Style: IPA
Hops: Strata, Idaho 7, Simcoe

Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft. Brewery only release.
Debut: 1/4/19

6% ABV

Editors Note: With the name “Mouse Mask” and a turn table, we thought DeadMau5, not Danger Mouse, which we, and the brewery, have clarified.

Full Sail Malted Milkshake Style IPA

If you expected styles like the “milkshake IPA” to die off in 2019, you might think again. Full Sail Malted Milkshake Style IPA is hitting the market.

Style: IPA (Milkshake IPA) w/ Lactose
