A Note on This Beer
Any hophead wanting an intensely pungent, mango kush-like blast in the face needs to try the freshest batch in BrickStone Brewery’s Haz’D Up series: today’s 4.14 UT-rated Hydro Juice Double Dry-Hopped Hazy IPA!
Forbes calls out this limited release series as “some of the best juicy, hazy IPAs in Chicago.” And with sought-after juice slingers like Half Acre, Hubbard’s Cave, and Mikerphone all calling the Windy City home, that’s a pretty huge compliment.
Loaded with the super sticky, ultra potency of cryo hops, this brand new edition proves the praise is well-deserved.
Seriously, the brewers might as well just call it “Hydroponic Juice” — it’s that dank. Powered by a massive 5 lbs of juicy hops per barrel, it explodes with tropical passionfruit, overripe melon, and a huge evergreen smack of pine needles. A super soft mouthfeel leads the way to a finish with virtually no bitterness, hiding the 7.1% ABV and prompting fans on UT to call it their favorite Brickstone Hazy yet.
With huge, concentrated hop flavors crammed into a hyper-drinkable package, Hydro Juice is a perfect example of what propelled Brickstone to win GABF Gold for a hoppy beer. And since it’s limited to a small 100 barrel batch and only found in Illinois, hop addicts wanting to try some of Chi Town’s best Hazies better not sleep on Hydro Juice.
