Beer Pick: Hold on Juicy is the first of New Realm Brewing’s new double IPA series

From a brewery that’s always innovating and surprising, Hold on Juicy is the first release in New Realm’s new “jam-centric” Just Like Music Double IPA series. And for that reason, it’s this week’ Beer Pick.

Hold on Juicy Double IPA

New Realm Brewing, Atlanta

Available on draft and in 6-pack 12-ounce cans

Profile

I’m not a big fan of hazy IPAs, but there are exceptions, and Hold on Juicy Double IPA is one of them. The first of New Realm’s series of music-themed double IPAs, it employs a combo of Azacca, El Dorado and Idaho 7 hops that give it a jolt of citrus aromas and flavors. But Cosmic Punch thiolized yeast generates another layer of grapefruit, passion fruit and guava notes. At 9.0% alcohol, it’s surprisingly easy to gulp, so take care, beware.

Pair with

Try Hold on Juicy Double IPA with roast chicken, or fried seafood, such as shrimp, oysters and clams.
