The Chicago Tribune recently reported that Hazy IPA’s (or Lazy Brewing) might be the upcoming trend for craft beer.
These types of IPA’s, also known as “New England IPA” or “Northeast IPA” were originally created in the Northeast and have since been popping up all over. Hazy IPA’s “get immense amounts of hops” and have almost a “juicy flavor” thanks to the fruity accents found in each sip.
Due to its citrus-like flavor, many have been skeptical about the overall balance (or lack of balance) of a Hazy IPA. However, those that are done right - made “thick” and leaving the bitterness far behind - turns skeptics into true believers.
