Offshoot Beer Co. Launches Pathways Hazy IPA With Experimental Hops

ORANGE COUNTY, CA – Come join Offshoot Beer Co. on the path less taken with their newest seasonal: Pathways Experimental Hazy IPA. Bursting with tropical, citrus, and stone fruit aromas, this trailblazing Hazy IPA is hitting shelves across the country now.

The path to innovation is best travelled with friends — Offshoot partnered with friends at Yakima Chief Hops in Washington to use their experimental Cryo Pop™ hops. Working closely with their R&D team, Offshoot developed this 7% ABV Hazy IPA bursting with aromas of peach skin, creamy citrus, ripe pineapple, and fresh coconut that pours a perfectly hazy orange. The flavors follow suit with a hops-and-yeast based tropical medley of piña colada, orange peel, tangerine, grapefruit, and just a hint of freshly-cut grass.

What exactly are Cryo Pop™ hops? In 2017, Yakima Chief Hops launched their innovative line of Cryo Hops™ — a hop-processing technology that separates whole hop cones into two components —the bracht (the leafy outer portion of the hop) from the concentrated lupulin (the interior resins and oils). The concentrated lupulin pellets provide maximum aroma impact, hence the POP in Cryo Pop™, which in the case of this blend gives citrus, tropical notes, and sweet aromatics.

Stefan Weber, Production Manager for The Bruery and Offshoot Beer Co., says “Pathways was brewed with wheat and rolled oats for a soft, creamy mouthfeel. The Cryo method removes a lot of the vegetal characteristics from the hops, leaving us with a fruit-forward beer that packs a citrus punch. We had a lot of fun getting to play around with this unique blend; we brewed about 4 beers with these hops on our pilot system before dialing in the perfect recipe for Pathways”. Pathways is the perfect beer for sharing with friends, Weber notes “I have a camping trip planned for this weekend and the first thing I’m packing is a couple of 4-packs of this for my cooler”.

Pathways will be available in 16oz 4-packs across Offshoot’s distribution footprint this Fall as a seasonal release. For more information about where you can find these SoCal hoppy beers near you, head to
