All About Hazy IPA
Hazy IPA, also known as New England IPA, stands out among other IPA styles by its overwhelmingly hazy appearance. It’s bursting with hop-derived juicy, tropical fruit flavors, while the bitterness typical of traditional IPAs takes a back seat. The mouth feel is often usually described as creamy, and the intense, opaque appearance is often compared to orange juice.
Crafted by blending classic IPA hop varieties, hazy IPAs punch-up the beer’s fruity and juicy flavor. These hops are typically added late in brewing, such as in the whirlpool and dry-hopping, which amplifies aroma and flavor while taming bitterness. The outcome is a brew with gentle bitterness and robust fruity notes like citrus, mango, peach, and other tropics-born flavors.
The malt profile in hazy IPAs leans light and crisp. A touch of caramel malt and flaked grains like oats and wheat add a subtle sweetness to balance hop bitterness. Typically moderate in alcohol content, ABV spans from 6% to 8%.
Recently, Hazy IPAs have gained immense popularity, particularly in the United States, and now their influence is spreading to many other countries. These beers are best served fresh, and tulip-shaped glasses amplify the beer's aroma and flavor.
