Hop Fire Hazy IPA Graduates to Canned Release

Migration Brewing is releasing their new Hop Fire Volume 1 in 16 Oz., 4-Pack cans for a limited time, and will be available at their four Portland pubs on Thursday, June 10, 2021.

Originally, Hop Fire was brewed at the Shop, Migration’s 7-barrel innovation facility, but due to its success, Hop Fire is being dropped into cans at the company’s Gresham production facility.

“A lot of hard work and planning went into making Hop Fire Volume 1 the success that it is,” said Mike Branes, Migration Brewing Co-Founder and Head Brewer. “ We are so excited to get it into cans, and let all our hop loving customers take it home in cans sold exclusively at our pubs.”

Hop Fire Volume 1 is a Hazy IPA that builds off Migration’s award winning core IPA’s while introducing new cold pool and hop addition techniques. The subtle malt allows for overwhelming hop aromatics to waft off the glass. Notes of passionfruit, pineapple and guava intermingle with hints of peach skin and sun-ripened tangelo zest. The mouthfeel is full and silky by the addition of flaked and malted oats in conjunction with wheat.

This bold, 6.8% ABV, IPA utilized 6 pounds per barrel of some of the world’s most sought after hops including: New Zealand Cascades and Sabro hops, giving it a unique flavor profile. While brewed at lower temperatures, these hops retain their one-of-a-kind flavors and removes the bitterness that can sometimes be present in hoppy IPAs.

Hop Fire is Volume 1 is just one of a planned series of big, bold, and unique brews with different colors, big aromatics, and explosive flavor profiles. Migration has sourced some of the most sought after grain in the Northwest, and they are leveraging all of their supplier relationships to get access to new, experimental hops.
