Maui Brewing Company Releases Unfiltered Version of Flagship IPA

KIHEI, Hawaii – Maui Brewing Company announces their latest release, Hazy Big Swell India Pale Ale which will be available for a limited time. The full-bodied hazy rendition of MBC’s flagship IPA is double dry hopped with Citra, Chinook, Simcoe and Mosaic hops.

MBC’s Lead Brewer, Dana Fleming stated, “The goal when designing this beer was to maintain the hop character of the original Big Swell, but lose the bitterness. We did this by selecting only the juiciest of the hops used in the original recipe, and by eliminating early hop additions. The result is a haze bomb with huge grapefruit, pine and stone fruit aromatics!”

Offering an unfiltered (hazy) deep gold appearance and a fuller creamier mouthfeel, the aromatic island IPA is bursting with grapefruit, pine and tropical fruit character. Like the flagship, Hazy Big Swell clocks in with 6.8% ABV and 70 IBUs.

Hazy Big Swell is currently available on draft or in to go 4-packs, crowlers or growlers at all Maui Brewing Company locations. It will also be made available across the islands and in select mainland markets where independently owned Maui Brewing Company craft beer can be purchased. Not in your area?
