We here at What’s Up NW love beer, and we LOVE Elysian Brewing. We are super excited to share their newest release, Full Contact – the perfect beer to get you through the rest of winter!

Rich and audacious, Full Contact Imperial Hazy IPA (8.8% ABV and 60 IBU) features a lustrous hoppy profile that loudly booms and beckons you towards, as featured in the can art below.

Created with a hop combination including centennial, simcoe and strata, Full Contact invites drinkers to a bittersweet initiation that few can resist. Cloaked in a semi-translucent haze, Full Contact features a unique fruit-forward flavor, connecting drinkers to a tangent of wistful memories through notes of tangerine, cream soda and fresh honeydew, along with floral and slightly resinous aromas. 

Full Contact, which is rolling out nationwide in 6-pack cans and on draft, joins Contact Haze as a member of Elysian’s Contact family. Also joining the Contact family later this year is Altered Contact (6.8% ABV), a Tart IPA which offers a refreshing alternative to the usually generous hop-forward flavors of the style. A Trilogy Pack featuring all three beers in the Contact Family will be available in March 2021.
