Stratford’s Two Roads Brewing Company released Mega Juicy Imperial Hazy IPA, now available along with other Two Roads beers in Connecticut where sold, including via Star Distributors, and also in Rhode Island via Horizon Beverage Co. – Wayne Division. In 2017, Two Roads launched Two Juicy Hazy Juicy IPA, earning several 90-plus ratings and growing into a Top 20 4-pack in the region according to IRI Northeast Region data, as of Dec. 26, 2021. This was followed by Lil’ Juicy Hazy Juicy IPA, a lower-alcohol version. Mega Juicy Hazy Imperial IPA is the brand’s latest addition to this rapidly growing, highly regarded, family of products. Master Brewer Phil Markowski said, “In formulating Mega Juicy vs. Two Juicy and Lil’ Juicy, we took the approach that each member of the ‘Juicy Family’ bear a family resemblance, but at the same time maintain their individuality.” Each brand uses two common hop varieties, Citra and Centennial, for continuity, but gets the majority of individual hop character from varieties unique to that brand. “Mega Juicy gets the dominant part of its hop character from Simcoe and Hallertauer Blanc, varieties not found in either Two Juicy or Lil’ Juicy. The hop combination in Mega Juicy exudes big bold notes of tropical fruits, bright citrus and mango,” he said. The company also updated the ABV and brand colors.
