Commercial Description: "Dude Blanket is back and juicier than ever, dude! One of our few repeat hazy IPA recipes, Dude got some updates as part of our never-ending pursuit of IPA perfection. With fewer IBUs, a splash of wheat, new yeast, and a more complex hop bill, we think the return of Dude will make you feel more warm and fuzzy than your favorite blanket! Citra, Eukanot, Centennial, and Mosaic hops combine with our house kveik strain for a big fruity nose with herbal undertones. The super creamy mouthfeel gives a filling impression despite low residual sugar. the Dude is back!"

Hops: Citra, Eukanot, Centennial, Mosaic.
