As Offshoot Beer Co. expands its distribution to 25 states, the Placentia, California-based brewer adds a fourth beer to its year-round lineup with the Escape West Coast IPA.

When Offshoot Beer Co. first launched in 2017, they had to remind everyone: Relax — it’s just a hazy IPA. For the flavor masterminds at The Bruery, who promised never to make an IPA, the Offshoot brand was a creative outlet to keep that promise and develop world-class hop-forward beers. Two years later, Offshoot Beer Co. rounds off its year-round core offerings with a brand new West Coast IPA: Escape.

Beginning this month, Escape will be available in 16 oz., 4-packs throughout 25 states and Washington, D.C. This brand new year-round release is Offshoot’s second foray into filtered beer. It is also pays homage to the hop-focused Southern California tradition of West Coast IPAs. Escape will be available in 4-packs at a $13.99 MSRP along with draft options for bars and restaurants.

“Offshoot Beer Co. has allowed us to branch off in new directions, continue our passion for experimentation and explore the art of developing hop-forward beers,” said Patrick Rue, founder of The Bruery and Offshoot Beer Co. and one of just 19 individuals to earn the title of Master Cicerone®, in a statement.

“Escape was a fun project that let us play with some hop varieties we really love,” said VP of Brewing Operations Darren Moser in a statement. “The combination of Mosaic, Strata, Simcoe, and Amarillo leaves you with a crisp IPA loaded with notes of tropical passionfruit, grapefruit zest, and hints of pine.”

The Bruery is known in the industry for its quality, experimentation, and taste-focused beers, so it’s easy to see why fans quickly grew to trust the Offshoot brand. Now, Relax is seeing huge success as the #1 Hazy IPA in sales per point of distribution, and Retreat is close on its… tail. The recent additions of Unwind and the Escape showcase a balanced mix of fun, fresh, hop-forward beers with a Southern California Coastal flare.
