All About Hazy IPA
Hazy IPA, also known as New England IPA or Northeast IPA, is a style of India Pale Ale that is characterized by its hazy or cloudy appearance, juicy and tropical fruit flavors, and low bitterness.
The hazy appearance is a result of the beer being unfiltered, allowing for the presence of yeast and hop particulates in the beer. This results in a slightly thicker and creamier mouthfeel, and a characteristic opaque appearance that is often compared to orange juice.
Hazy IPAs are typically brewed with a combination of hop varieties that contribute to the beer's fruity and juicy flavor profile. These hops are added late in the brewing process, and sometimes even after fermentation, to maximize the flavor and aroma while minimizing bitterness. This results in a beer that is low in bitterness, with a strong emphasis on fruit-forward flavors such as citrus, mango, peach, and tropical fruits.
The malt profile of hazy IPAs is typically light and crisp, with a minimal amount of caramel malt used to provide a slight sweetness that balances the hop bitterness. The alcohol content is usually moderate, with ABV ranging from 6-8%.
Hazy IPAs have gained popularity in recent years, particularly in the United States, where they are one of the most popular styles of craft beer. They are often enjoyed fresh and are typically served in a tulip-shaped glass to enhance the aroma and flavor of the beer.
What is the difference between Hazy IPA and New England IPA?
Both "Hazy IPA" and "New England IPA" are commonly used terms to describe a style of IPA that is characterized by its hazy appearance, juicy and tropical fruit flavors, and low bitterness.
The term "New England IPA" is often used to refer to the origin of the style, as it was first popularized by breweries in the New England region of the United States, particularly in Vermont and Massachusetts. The term "Hazy IPA" is a more generic descriptor that is used to describe any IPA with a hazy appearance, regardless of where it was brewed.
While both terms are commonly used, "Hazy IPA" has become increasingly popular and is now the preferred term used by many beer enthusiasts and industry professionals. This is because it is a more inclusive term that recognizes the fact that the style has evolved beyond its New England origins and is now brewed by breweries across the country and around the world.
