There's a real trend in the IPA category that is not going away any time soon, the New England style IPA or “hazy IPA” beers are being brewed at a feverish pace. Our friends in New England changed the IPA trend by using a different yeast strain and hops that weren’t so “hoppy” as the West Coast style that we have been accustomed to in the past years. These new IPA's are some of the most demanded beers in our market, and we are here to support the trend! Take a look below at some of our featured "juicy beers" and ask your local sales account manager for more information today.
Make America Juicy Again - Heretic
Hazy New England-style IPA. This is all about bringing the juice back to American beer. Hazy, luscious, and full of juicy hops. This beer is brewed with no bittering hop addition, just whirlpool and insane amounts of dry hopping. That results in a gentle bittering and a huge, juicy hop profile.
Juicy Haze IPA - New Belgium
Packed with bright tropical aromas and brilliant citrusy flavors, this unfiltered IPA wraps up with a pleasantly smooth finish. New Belgium's Juicy Haze has a very strong hop aroma of citrus (lemon, some orange, lime and grapefruit) and tropical (guava and pineapple), with light grassy and caramel-like malt aroma. This beer finishes clean at 7.5% ABV.
New England IPA - Samuel Adams
Samuel Adams New England IPA is a medium-bodied, hazy brew featuring a big punch of citrus juiciness. The slight sweetness is perfectly balanced by the pineapple and grapefruit hop character, without being overly bitter. Clocking in at 6.8% ABV and a low 35 IBUs, the unfiltered IPA provides a burst of fruited hop aroma and leaves drinkers wanting another sip. In comparison to West Coast style IPA's which have prominent hop bitterness and a light, dry mouthfeel, New England IPA’s are generally known for a juicy, luscious mouthfeel and opaque, hazy appearance - and are best enjoyed fresh.
Hazy Little Thing IPA - Sierra Nevada
Hazy Little Thing, is Sierra Nevada's take on the "hazy" trend. This unfiltered, unprocessed IPA, comes straight from the tanks and into the can. At 6.7% ABV this IPA finishes clean.
