A little over three years ago, Firestone Walker Brewing released its first canned Hazy IPA with Mind Haze. Then last year the brewery expanded the lineup, first with Double Mind Haze and later in the year with Mind Haze Tropical Hazy Mixed Pack featuring three flavors – Tiki SmashHopical Crush and Citrus Cyclone.

Now a year later, Firestone Walker expands the Mind Haze series with Mind Haze Light. This new Hazy IPA brings forth all of the juicy flavors but with only 100 calories per 12oz can at just 4% ABV and 25 IBUs.

“This is our ultra-sessionable riff on the Mind Haze experience,” said Brewmaster Matt Brynildson. “We borrowed several tricks from perfecting the original Mind Haze and packed them down into a low-calorie, low-alcohol edition that is loaded with tropical-citrus flavors.”

Mind Haze Light shares considerable DNA with the original Mind Haze, including the same yeast strain as well as a grist bill that employs wheat and oats. The dry hopping blend is also similar, but with Mosaic and El Dorado hops pushed to the forefront.

“This was all about evolving the Mind Haze brewing experience into a lighter beer while maximizing the flavor and mouthfeel as much as possible,” Brynildson said. “Mind Haze Light is the kind of beer you’ll love to drink when you want the goodness of a hazy IPA without the heaviness or calories.”

Mind Haze Light is now rolling out in a 12-ounce six-pack can format, and you can discover where it’s available near you with Firestone Walker’s Beer Finder. You can also find it at the brewery’s three locations in Paso RoblesBuellton, and Venice.
