Elysian Brewing Full Contact Imperial Hazy IPA, the brewery’s newest launch, is 8.8% ABV with 60 IBU.
Created with a hop combination including centennial, simcoe and strata, Full Contact has a fruit-forward flavor, the Seattle-based brewery reports, with notes of tangerine, cream soda and fresh honeydew, along with floral and slightly resinous aromas.
Full Contact rolls out nationwide in 6-pack cans and on draft, joining Contact Haze as a member of Elysian’s Contact family.
Also joining the Contact family later this year is Altered Contact (6.8% ABV), a tart IPA that offers an alternative to the usually generous hop-forward flavors of the style. A Trilogy Pack featuring all three beers in the Contact Family will launch in March 2021.
