O’Hara’s Brewery, based in Co. Carlow, has just released its brand new brew, White Haze IPA.
The latest release is a fruit forward, hazy IPA that pours yellow/gold and is explosively aromatic. It delivers a soft mouthfeel and refreshing tropical fruit flavours from the addition of Citra, Amarillo and Mosaic hops.
Commenting on the new brew, Seamus O’Hara, founder and CEO of O’Hara’s Brewery, said: “We are not ones to follow every trend but we felt it was time to tackle a hazy IPA. There is almost as much diversity in this style as there is in craft beer generally but the one common denominator is that soft mouthfeel and juicy flavour.
“In developing White Haze we played around with a few different hop bills but if we were going to do a juicy hazy IPA we always wanted to have Mosaic involved, we just love the punch of grapefruit pith it gives a beer. Like most of our beers drinkability was an important consideration and we strived for a fruity but balanced beer that is both accessible and rewarding. While White Haze has lots of soft juicy flavour I think it has just enough bittering balance to make a second bottle tempting!”
White Haze makes an excellent pairing for spicy dishes, steak and crisp chicken salads, also making a perfect accompaniment to blue cheeses such as Cashel Blue.
White Haze will be available in select independent bars, off-licences and retailers.
