This summer Stanley Park Brewing launched the Waypoint Hazy Pale Ale, a new beer dedicated to those who are starting to emerge from lockdown and heading out to “discover new waypoints along your journey”.
Waypoint Hazy Pale Ale
This brew is made with a strong mix of hops and malts including: African Queen, Comet and Crystal hops; and Pale Malt, Malted Oats, Malted Wheat, and Golden Naked Oats.
It has a golden haze appearance, an aromatic grapefruit citrus and tropical fruit flavour, and a low perceived bitterness and refined alcohol level coming in at 5.2% ABV and 35 IBU.
Brewmaster Thom Riley explained that although there have been a lot of hazy pale ales on the market recently, he was interested in making a more drinkable version. “I’ve tried to keep the same level of hoppiness and flavour you’d expect from an IPA, but just dialled back the alcohol. It has all the mouthfeel and aroma of a traditional IPA; it’s just a little more sessionable. I think this is a great beer for those who appreciate a hop-forward style.”
During these odd times of pandemics, quarantines and other natural disasters, the artwork shared on the Waypoint Hazy Pale Ale packaging and cans also holds some timely symbolism. The illustration highlights Stanley Park’s Brockton Lighthouse signifying a beacon of light in a sea of haze. Seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.
