Lakewood gets a little hazy with Melon Baller

Lakewood Brewing Co. of Garland is set to join the haze craze with the late-summer debut of Melon Baller Hazy IPA.

Taking its place as the third beer in the brewery's Limited Can Series line, Mellon Baller (6.9% AB) is brewed with fresh cantaloupe, along with a blend of Loral, Citra, Bravo and Huell Melon hop varieties. The new beer follows Earthly Highs and Muy Importante in the small-batch series, which the company says has been well-received by fans, not only for its inventive brews, but also for the "kick-ass can designs" created by artist Cory Say.

“We’ve been toying around with some recipes and are finally ready to embrace the haze." says Wim Bens, founder and president of Lakewood. "We wanted to make a hazy IPA but make it a little more fun by brewing it with two types of ‘melon’ - Huell Melon hops that add ripe melon and bright fruit aromas, plus fresh cantaloupe to boost the fruit-forward hop profile and create a soft palate."

Look for Melon Baller to be available on tap and in four-packs of 12-ounce cans beginning in early August.
