Bear Republic Releases Challenge Series No. 19, Hazy IPA

Bear Republic Brewing Company’s newest release is Challenge Series #19, a hazy IPA ale with a fruit-forward and juicy character. This only-brewed once hazy IPA is hopped with Chinook, Calypso, Comet and Bravo for citrusy finish.

“Challenge No. 19 is all about maximum fruit flavor and aroma using a distinct hop blend. This recipe yielded excellent flavors and aroma of musky melon, ruby red grapefruit, and reminds me of peeling a fresh tangerine. No fruit was added — just a little bit of hops in the boil, and a metric boatload in the whirlpool and dry hop additions,” said Bear Republic Brewmaster Roger Herpst. “If you’re looking for a crowd pleaser, look no further than Challenge Series No. 19.”

Challenge Series No. 19 has a malt base of Two-Row, Superior Oat Malt, White Wheat Malt and Bru Malt. The Barbarian Yeast produces an ale with enhanced citrus flavors to go along with a healthy full body experience.  A true hazy IPA Challenge Series #19 is available in four packs of 16 oz. cans in limited quantities in stores and Bear Republic brewpub in Rohnert Park, CA. Find Challenge Series No. 19 in stores next week. Expect a new Challenge Series release soon.
