This weekend flew by, probably since work has been crazy lately. Time for a review beer.
Style: New England IPA
Trivia: According to wikipedia.com, “New England IPAs (also referred to as Hazy IPA or Juicy IPA) are a style of IPA invented by The Alchemist’s John Kimmich with his beer, Heady Topper. They are characterized by juicy, citrus, and floral flavours, with an emphasis on hop aroma with low bitterness. They also have a smooth consistency or mouthfeel, and a hazy appearance. These characteristics are achieved using a combination of brewing techniques, including the use of particular strains of yeast, the timing of adding the hops, and adjusting the chemistry of the water. The style has become popular among New England brewers. New England IPAs need not be brewed in New England. It was officially recognized as a separate beer style, the Juicy or Hazy India Pale Ale, by the Brewers Association in 2018. A variation on the style is the milkshake IPA, which adds lactose to make a New England IPA more creamy.”
Random: Our cats have spent the entire day sleeping in their beds. It’s a rough life for them.
The beer poured with a thick, two finger, white head. It too awhile to dissipate and left some lacing on the glass. The body was a bright yellow with no visible carbonation due to the haze. The nose was filled with fruit. I got mango, peach, apricot and some kiwi as well. The taste was just as fruity as the nose. I got the same peach and apricot and kiwi with some pineapple as well. It was pleasantly bitter. The body was on the thicker side with moderate carbonation. The finish was lengthy and sticky with tropical fruit. The beer was excellent and had lots of bright flavors. This is worth finding.
