Fort Collins, Colo. — New Belgium Brewing announces its newest launch of the Voodoo Ranger brand series, American Haze, a 5% ABV IPA built to enjoy anytime and anywhere. American Haze is brewed with all-American hops, boasts supreme drinkability, and is available now nationwide. This marks the first in the current year-long Voodoo Ranger collection to have an ABV lower than 7.0%, to give beer drinkers the ability to enjoy the freedom to have one more as this hazy India Pale Ale is highly sessionable.
“American Haze was a fun challenge because we wanted to get all of the great attributes of a Hazy IPA but deliver it in a more drinkable format. We played around with a lot of different formulations and eventually landed one that has a big juicy hop aroma and a well-balanced body that makes the beer feel like a hazy, but highly drinkable,” said Ross Koenigs, Research and Development Brewer at New Belgium.
