Offshoot Beer Seasonal Visions Returns DDH Hazy IPA • thefullpint.com
(ORANGE COUNTY, CA) – Offshoot Beer Co. is bringing back the season favorite Double Dry Hopped Hazy IPA!
If single dry hopping is good, double dry hopping is even better, and Offshoot Beer Co. returns with its season favorite: Visions, a hazy double dry hopped IPA. Loaded with fresh, fruity, hop-forward flavors, Visions joins Offshoot’s four staple beers in national distribution, including its new Coast (An Anytime Hazy Pale Ale), Relax (It’s Just a Hazy IPA), Retreat ( This is a Double Hazy IPA), and Escape (This is your everyday West Coast IPA).
Offshoot Beer Co. had a vision for how to make a hazy IPA even juicier, and that’s it. Consider this a super loaded hazy IPA, with a healthy dosage of hops to impart fruity, tropical and citrus notes, with a smooth, round mouthfeel. With aromas reminiscent of fruit punch with hints of citrus, a bit of pine on the palate, and the mellow mouthfeel you expect from an Offshoot beer, Visions is truly an anytime IPA.
Visions, like many of Offshoot’s most popular beers, are from some of the fan-favorite monthly small-batch releases coming out of the brewery. At 6.9% ABV, the same recipe from last year’s brew was used, but of course an extra year of refining techniques makes this year’s batch better than ever. Visions is double dry hopped with Centennial, Citra, Cashmere, Mosaic, Amarillo, Simcoe (Brewing Manager Nathan Watkins jokes, “Might be easier for me to remember the list of hops that ARE NOT NOT in this beer.”) The result is going forward without too much bitterness and a smooth mouthfeel that makes this IPA super approachable.
Watkins discusses the Offshoot dry hopping process in more detail. “Traditionally, when you dry hop, you do it towards the end of the fermentation, then we let it sit for a few days and dry hop it again with entirely different hops, extracting a bouquet of unique aromas and flavors. . Our dry hopping technique is a little more involved than simply throwing hops into the top of our fermenters; we use additional equipment to move the beer, which results in more efficient use of hops as well as more concentrated flavor and aroma.
Visions joins an exciting lineup of rotating seasons for 2022, which will also include a lager, a cold IPA and an IPA brewed with experimental hops. Caitie Gold, Chief Brand Officer, says, “These seasons are an incredible opportunity to deliver unique and innovative beers that complement our brands throughout the year. They end up being some of our favorites, Visions was our best selling season last year.
Visions is now available in 16oz 4-packs across Offshoot’s entire distribution footprint, as well as The Bruery’s tasting rooms and via direct shipping from their own website to multiple states.
