Parallel 49 has announced a new IPA to their core lineup that brings a hazy IPA to drinkers year-round.
Trash Panda is the eighth beer to join the current yearly offerings that include Filthy Dirty IPA, Ruby Tears Northwest Red Ale, Jerkface 9000 Wheat Ale, Craft Lager Munich Helles Lager and Bodhisattva Dry Hopped Sour.
Trash Panda Hazy IPA is a Northeast style IPA, at 5.5% abv and 55 IBU’s, that uses huge amounts of dry hopping, giving this beer complex notes of melon, tropical fruit and pear. Beer lovers who are already familiar with Filthy Dirty IPA will have a completely unique drinking experience with Trash Panda, as this new brew is lower in alcohol content (Trash Panda’s ABV is 5.5%, Filthy Dirty has an ABV of 7.2%) and uses a different variety of hops and malt, which effect the beer’s visible haziness and smooth mouth feel. Most noticeably, Trash Panda differs from Filthy Dirty in flavour profile: Trash Panda is a juicy IPA with mild bitterness, whereas Filthy Dirty IPA provides dank and aggressive amounts of bitterness.
Trash Panda is available in six pack cans at select retails and for tasting and growler fills at the brewery.
