Party Like It’s 1985 with New Belgium’s Latest in their Rotating IPA Series

New Belgium Brewing announces its newest launch of the Voodoo Ranger rotating IPA series, 1985 IPA. Hazy, like the mid-80s were for most of us, this IPA is like, totally loaded with juicy mango freshness. High in flavor and low in bitterness at 6.7% ABV, this easy drinking beer is the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe. Available in 12oz, 6 pack cans, 1985 IPA conveniently fits into all fanny packs.

New Belgium’s Voodoo Ranger portfolio just leveled-up. The entire Voodoo Ranger portfolio is up over 40% vs. last year and the Rotating series (the #1 Craft brand launch in 2019), is now New Belgium’s 5th bestselling brand. 1985 IPA is the newest release in this series and is bursting with juicy mango, pineapple and guava flavors and aromatics. This bright, fruit-forward IPA showcases a refreshing flavor and slightly lower ABV for bodacious drinkability.

When asked about this latest Voodoo Ranger rotator, Ross Koenigs, Research and Development Brewer at New Belgium said, “For 1985 IPA, we wanted to make a hazy IPA to crush during summertime. 1985 uses loads of Citra and Simcoe hops and then dials up the fruit factor with the addition of mango. The result is an impossibly juicy and drinkable IPA arriving just in time for summer.”

1985 IPA pairs best with sunglasses and neon, so when you’re outside enjoying some fun in the sun make sure you have this totally radical IPA in hand.
