Conceived at the Redhook Brewlab in Seattle by Head Brewer, Nick Crandall, Atomic Robot Hazy IPAnow sees wider distribution in both 12oz cans and on draft. Redhook Brewery has now launched this new sessionable, hazy IPA at 4.2% ABV that is full of juicy flavor throughout the Pacific Northwest.
“Drinking Atomic Robot is like getting punched in the taste buds by dozens of microscopic flavor robots—in a good way,” said Crandall, in a statement. “Our guests at Brewlab have been loving all the juicy, hazy IPAs that we’ve been brewing, and we wanted to brew something that had those big tropical hop notes and a juicy mouthfeel but was a little lower alcohol content at 4.2%–I can drink a few of these and still hit the double 20 on the dart board.”
As with Redhook’s other more recent beer releases, it continues to create some great artwork for the beer labels. For Atomic Robot the brewery reached out to Jeff Kleinsmith, Sub Pop Records Creative Director. During his 25-year tenure at Sub Pop, Kleinsmith has had worked with such bands as Sleater-Kinney, Nirvana, Beach House and many more. Both the name and the design of Atomic Robot are a playful nod to Brewlab’s motto: Beer is a science, sort of.
