Founders Brewing has announced a new variant of its popular 4 Giants IPA: the Haze of Destiny, an imperial IPA that brings a hazy, tropical twist to the classic beer.
This new hazy IPA contains citrus and tropical notes of pineapple and mango, the company says, plus bubblegum, lemongrass and stone fruit. It’s moderately hazy with low bitterness and a soft mouthfeel. The ABV is 8.4%.
“There are a lot of palates out there that appreciate the softer, juicier, less-bitter side of IPA, and we needed something for them in our portfolio,” says Founders Brewmaster Jeremy Kosmicki. “This beer is brewed with oats and wheat for a round and full mouthfeel that doesn’t get too sweet or cloying, but the real stars of the show are the hops added during fermentation that give an incredible tropical fruit and citrus-like aroma.”
4 Giants and The Haze of Destiny is currently available in 4-packs of 16-oz. cans in select locations and on draft in Founders Grand Rapids and Detroit taprooms. It will also roll out across Founders’ 50-state distribution footprint in early April.
Pricing in the Founders taprooms is $10.99 per 4-pack. Retail prices will vary by market.
