Hazy Trail is 10 Barrel’s first year-round Hazy IPA. Released during the second half of last year, this IPA brings together the juicy, tropical flavors that one expects in a Hazy IPA but without any grainy flavor. There’s a bit of a malt profile that melds well with the juicy, flavorful hops. Hazy Trail sits at 6.2% ABV and just 50 IBU’s and is available in 12oz cans and on draft.
The label artwork on Hazy Trail features a photograph of Haystack Rock, the one located in Cannon Beach, from Justin Wirtalla. Follow Justin on Instagram or check out his website.

Also released late last year is Nature Calls, what is described as a Mountain IPA. This IPA brings together characteristics of both a West Coast IPA and a New England IPA. As a fan of the West Coast style, Nature Calls leans more this way, just without much bitterness.
Nature Calls is full of tropical fruit flavors of mango and grapefruit with a bit of piney on the backend. Sitting at 6.5% ABV and 55 IBUs, Nature Calls is available year-round in 12oz cans and on draft.
A portion of all proceeds from the sales of Nature Calls benefits The Conservation Alliance The mission of the Conservation Alliance is to harness the collective power of business and outdoor communities to fund and advocate for the protection of North America’s wild places.
