Redhook Launches Atomic Robot Hazy, Sessionable IPA

Redhook Launches Atomic Robot Hazy, Sessionable IPAFrom Redhook:

SEATTLE, WA  – September 9, 2019 – Redhook Brewery is excited to announce the arrival of Atomic Robot, a sessionable, hazy IPA available in six-packs of 12-ounce cans throughout the Pacific Northwest beginning in September. Developed by Redhook Head Brewer Nick Crandall at Brewlab on Capitol Hill, the beer delivers full, juicy flavor with notes of lemon and mango while only clocking in at 4.2% ABV.

“Drinking Atomic Robot is like getting punched in the taste buds by dozens of microscopic flavor robots—in a good way,” said Crandall. “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.”

Redhook tapped Sub Pop Records Creative Director Jeff Kleinsmith to bring the Atomic Robot cans to life. During his 25-year tenure, Kleinsmith has had the honor of working with such bands as Sleater-Kinney, Nirvana, Beach House and hundreds more. Both the name and the design of Atomic Robot are a playful nod to Brewlab’s motto: Beer is a science, sort of.

Atomic Robot is perfectly balanced with notes of lemon and mango, and a crisp, clean finish. Ella, Galaxy and experimental hops give the beer its aroma, juicy flavor and hint of bitterness, while the malt bill—featuring flaked oats and Carahell, in addition to 2-Row—gives the beer some heft.

Look for Atomic Robot in cans and on draft throughout the Pacific Northwest. This is a limited release beer that will be available September through December.
