A Note on This Beer
For many cultures, the Lotus flower is a symbol of purity, enlightenment, and rebirth.
But in the world of craft beer, the Lotus signifies juicy layers of tangy citrus and sweet vanilla.
In fact, that’s precisely why Anchorage headbrewer Gabe Fletcher chose to showcase Lotus Hops in The Demon Boy Hazy IPA — because every sip tastes just like a creamsicle fresh out of the freezer!
All that citrus and vanilla flavor is 100% powered by Lotus Hops. This brew is so loaded with smooth citrus that when one fan on social media asked where the hops came from, Gabe responded, “Hell! Where creamsicles go to melt!”
Less than a year ago, we got a premier taste of the pure and juicy creamsicle flavor of this newly-born hop varietal thanks to The Demon Boy. Instantly, we were hooked!
It wasn’t just us, though — the silky sweet flavors blew the minds of anyone lucky enough to get their hands on the Lotus-hopped treat! Anchorage fans like @break_alchemy took to UT after tasting The Demon Boy, saying, “it's a privilege to be able to drink this!”
This killer Hazy explodes with juicy orange and bright tangerine. More subtle notes of ripe mango and a blaze of pithy grapefruit slide into a clean finish, while a touch of lactose adds a light creaminess. With no other hops to get in the way, sipping this juicebomb really lets you experience the full flavor profile of Lotus!
It really is like sipping a melted creamsicle, but better because it comes with a 6.4% ABV and a bitter, resinous finish!
No need to wander through Dante’s Inferno searching for a taste of this beer — if your palate seeks tangy enlightenment from a pure creamsicle in-a-can, then let Anchorage guide you to the Lotus with each sip of The Demon Boy.
