Well well well… look what we have here! 

First brought to life in 2019 as a very small, keg-only collaboration with the flower-power pioneers at Hopheads, the moment this beer was tapped was like the reveal of some mysterious artefact from an adventure movie or Sci Fi flick we’d seen as kids: we knew it held within it a strange power, as though something from another time or world had intersected ours… 

Seriously, have a look at this thing. Triple dry-hopped with an extraordinary trifecta featuring Azacca (named for the Haitian god of agriculture, no less), the dual-natured dynamism of El Dorado, and good old Citra, this shapely beer really exemplifies the love of hops we share with our fellow ‘heads. How could we not share it?

Tropical but not sweet, at 6.5% ABV this is one to sip on as you contemplate the mysteries in the park beneath some majestic tree, or the sheer beauty of a sky full of clouds over the beach, or the profundity of “why do I have to work tomorrow” and “what even is beer?” 

Close your eyes and picture it: citrus, mango, pineapple and pear dance passionately on the tongue… as oats soften the body in a supple counterstep… and all the while, a gentle tapestry of pine is woven in the background, furnishing the scene and setting of this most tasty trip. It’s ripe. It’s pillowy on its lingering, beautiful finish. It’s a damn good beer.

In short, it’s a classic Hazy style, for those who know, and those who seek to know. Get your glimpse of the Shape of Hops to Come with Akasha and Hopheads.
