look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured a light brownish color and left an attractive mound of foam on top that lingered. Could have sworn I smelled a hint of apples among with other fruity flavors. The taste was great. There are clearly multiple fruit flavors in there but it is not over the top and you can still look like a man drinking it. Went down great. No complaints.

Tried this on tap at the airport in Denver. It came out in a pint glass, waaay too cold.

A- True to its name, this is a murky, hazy brew, appropriate for being dry hopped. Medium copper colored, no head but probably can't blame that on the beer.

S- Crystal malt dominated by hops.

T- Hop bitterness with pine and citrus followed by mild biscuity malt. Dry at the finish without being astringent.

M- medium body, moderate plus carbonation but not fizzy or harsh.

O- If you like a hoppy APA,this fits the bill. Low ABV makes this very drinkable. It paired well with a carnitas burrito that was drizzled with a lime infused crema. It benefited from sitting for a bit to warm up so the flavors and aroma could come through.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured into a standard pint glass. The beer is a nice orangish-amber color. A tan colored head sits on top for a long while, when it finally dissipates it's still a fairly nice thick film. Sticky lacing clings to the glass. The beer smells slightly piny and hoppy with a touch of malty sweetness. The taste is bright and clean, with the piny hops dominating. The sweet caramel maltiness balances everything out in the end. There is a tea like quality in this beer. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and goes down very easy with a slightly dry finish.

Overall, this is a very drinkable APA that's got a nice balance in it. The low ABV is certainly nice for a summer afternoon. Well done by Boulder Beer.

3.55/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz can into a pint glass, this APA presents as a hazy amber color with a 1.5" sticky foamy head leaving decent lacing down the sides.

This ale has a punky hopped aroma, with leather, dried tobacco, mild apricot, and cracked black pepper notes.

Taste starts mildly soapy, with peach, malt, floral hops, and a tangy finish.

A thin to medium bodied beer, this has a slightly acidic finish that is a bit off-putting.

The beauty of the craft beer in a can revolution is that camp-outs are no longer the bland, bloating lite-beer blah-fests they used to be. Still, just because it is craft in a can doesn't make it great for a camp out. This beer is the perfect example of that; not terrible, but certainly not remarkable. Think of it as the craft beer in a can you take in reserve for that late night poker game, but not the one you enjoy floating down stream. The one good camp-out quality to it is its relatively low ABV; at 4.85%, you won't be napping your way through the afternoon after a few of these in the hot sun.

On tap at Yard House Dedham. Served in a standard pint glass. Hazy murky orange colored body with a thin white head. Smell was very piney. Taste was pretty good. It's like a hopped up version of a pale ale. Mouthfeel was not as smooth as I wanted from the style. Surprised to see how low the abv actually is in reality. An enjoyable beer to drink with a plate of nachos.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

this is a real good beer, more along the lines of an ipa than a straight pale ale. pours distinctively hazy as the name implies, with a 2 inch white head that leaves some lacing. smell is fruity and evergreen hops in equal proportions, without much malt to balance out the nose. flavor is more balanced, but still a hop bomb by all counts. very high pitched fruity notes define the hop profile, more than just citrus, although the zesty vibe is definitely there. very crisp in the finish. feel is very brightly carbonated, maybe too much so for the style, but it works perfectly here. medium body, maybe a bit more. a lot of these can be filling, but its a good beer to start the evening with. overall an excellent off-beat pale ale at a very reasonable price.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

From bottle into pint glass while enjoying a Trader Joe's pizza post work.

Appearance: A fairly translucent amber yellow body with a small white head that disappears fairly quickly with no lacing.

Smell: Aromatic hops and hints of pine and citrus. A typical pale pale pale IPA smell.

Taste: Mainly a aromatic dominated IPA rather than the alternative bitterness expressed in some high ABV brews. It has some subtle earthly and caramel malt hints underneath a stronger citrus body.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body with a high level of fine carbonation.

Drinkability: It's just an average IPA. It has a cool name and bottle style.

5/8/2012

A: A cross between amber and brown. It's much darker than I expected. For being unfiltered and having the word hazed in it it's surprisingly not hazy at all.

S: I haven't had this in at least 5 years. It's much different from how I remember. Very malty, but quite nice. There a pleasant blend of caramel and milk chocolate. It's bready and biscuity. The focus is really on the malt aspect of the beer. This is pretty similar to an English Dark Mild, surprisingly. Earthy notes blend with a light nuttiness.

T: The flavor is much like the aroma, with the focus being on rich malt: caramel, bread, biscuit, and faint chocolate. There's a low earthy bitterness. The finish is bready and biscuity.

M: Lower medium body with medium carbonation.

Overall: I'd think I was drinking the wrong beer if a rep hadn't told me they'd recently been entering this into the English Mild Ale category at competitions. Much better than expected.

I love that this one is available in a 12 can pack now. Poured from 12oz can to pint glass:

Looks nice. A mellow, muted gold body with a finger of dense, slightly off white head. Decent lacing and hardly any beading.

The nose is good and balanced... earthy and citrus hops cut with caramel and sweet grain.

The taste highlights many of the same qualities - again, very balanced and totally session worthy.

Overall, this is a solid brew. Not really my go-to style but I'm all in when it's this good.

3.45/5  rDev -6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a mug.

A: Pours a darkish copper color with moderate yeast haze. The head is a two finger light cream color that fades pretty damn quick. On a side note, how the hell is this a pale ale? Looks more like an amber/red ale to me...

S: Pretty typical. Citric hops along side a biscuity maltiness. Aside from some spice notes here and there, not really a standout in a crowded style, whether it be pale ale or amber ale (damnit, now I'm confused...)

T: Good news is, this is a very fresh bottle, meaning the hop quality is intact, providing an easygoing grapefruit flavor with mild finishing bitterness. The malt backbone easily keeps up with the hops, as well. There also exists a subtle fruitiness from the esters I really enjoy...unfortunately, they also provide an astringent note that's slightly off-putting. Otherwise, it's solid.

M: This is actually a bit on the heavy side, with a chalky aftertaste from the yeast. As such, the drinkability factor is slightly inhibited, but not ruined completely by any means. Could stand to have a slightly crisper finish, but carbonation is spot on, at least.

O: I like how it's not a straight-up SNPA clone (in fact, it's not a pale ale in my opinion), but rather chooses to be slightly (if not terribly) unique. It's nothing mindblowing, but would I get it again? Sure, why not.

I have had this beer on a few occasions. The first time that I had it was on tap and I loved it. It has a great body aroma when it is drawn in to drink. I have more recently had it in a bottle, and have had the same great experience. This is a delightful beer with a great hop profile. Almost exactly what I am looking for in a strong IPA.

Poured into chalice glass from can

A: Hazy burnt amber color with a two finger light tan foamy head. Recedes sort of quick but leaves nice amounts of sticky lacing.

S: Mildly sweet bready malt, hint of citrus and pine hop aroma. Malt overpowers the hops for sure

T: Watery, tinny, mild hop flavor, and a sweet malty finish.

M: Light, watery, mild carbonation.

O: VERY disappointed in this. I thought this beer was good years ago out of a bottle, would like to try a different batch.

3.48/5  rDev -5.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

poured from the bottle into a pint glass

A - pours a hazy orangish-amber with unfiltered yeast forming intricate patterns. A steady stream of small bubbles rushes to the rocky, tan, off-white head. Head stays intact all the way down the glass. Leaves behind several large splotches of lacing.

S - lightly floral with a hint of orange and cinnamon

T - Orange and a bit of cinnamon upfront. The floral and citrus hops offer a noticeable kick soon after the beer hits the tongue, but otherwise the beer comes off feeling hollow with shadows of orange and cinnamon floating around in an either of nothingness where malt should be. Smooth, orange-cinnamon finish that turns dry after awhile.

M - Highly carbonated with a light-medium body. Maybe if it was a peppy summer ale it could pull off this mouthfeel, but its not...

Despite the cool looking bottle and name, Hazed and Infused didn't offer enough for me to come back to it. The real issues are 1) although the hop choice lends to a nice nose, there aren't enough interesting malt flavors to back it up, leaving the beer tasting like it has a hole in the flavor profile. 2) The light and highly carbonated mouthfeel seems out of sync with the dry-hopped flavor profile of the beer. Not a bad APA, just not better than the readily available competition around here.

A - Dark copper clear body with thick white head and good lacing.

S - Citrusy and floral nose. Not a ton of intensity in it, some fruity esters and mellow malt characteristics behind the hoppy aromas.

T - Over ripened fruit with a slight bitterness at the beginning. Some bready character afterwards and a pretty plain and mellow hop profile.

M - Light-medium bodied, good carbonation level, no alcohol burn.

O - A pretty plain and under-exciting beer. I supposed it's worth drinking if you have nothing else, but there a ton of more exciting beers on the market.

T/M Slightly sweeter versoin of its nose. Mouthfeel is very light and clean.

Overall Not a knock out hopmonster, but a smooth little number that could be a session IPA. Worth a drink..or two.

12 oz bottle pours a deep clear amber with quickly dissapating head. Aroma is dominated by piney hops, vanilla and biscuit. Taste is peppery and piney hops, and toffee from the malt. Mouthfeel is a bit on the flat side, but acceptable. A solid pale ale, but nothing to get too excited about.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass. It's a nice hazy yellow orange with 1 1/2" of off white head. Smells big on citrus hop character. Good frontside hop taste. Citrus, fruit and light malt backbone. Good carbonation. This is a beer I drank a ton of in college... At least when I wasn't crushing BL at the baseball house. Good stuff.

Poured into a tulip glass. Cloudy golden brown. I like the look of unfiltered beer. Nice 2 finger head. Decent lacing.

The smell is sweet hops. A little bread as well.

The taste is slightly hoppy sweet. Not much malt. Really smooth.

I really like the mouthfeel. Nice carbonation with smooth finish.

Overall, it's a good beer but it's not a pale ale. It's not an ipa for sure. I don't know what it is. I wish it had a little higher abv. Good beer that's worth trying.

Perhaps I caught a bad batch of this stuff, but it was really bad.

Poured an amber brown with a nice, two-fingers of foamy head. Smell presented apricots and some hops, though not overpowering by any means.

Taste was bitter, and reminded me of paint thinner. Almost a metallic-like finish.

Going to try it out of a bottle and see if it was a bad keg... but I'm guessing not.

Boulder Hazed & Infused has a very thick, light tan head and a hazy orange appearance with lots of streaming bubbles and a good amount of thick, cottony lacing. The aroma is faint, but one can pick up light citrus and water. Taste is of bitter hops, citrus, marmalade, orange peel, sourness, Cheerios, sweetness, bread, and indistinguishable grain. Mouthfeel is light to medium and soft, and Boulder Hazed & Infused finishes semi dry and easy drinking. Overall, this is a good and interesting beer.

Poured opaque golden with a white head. Not too much carbonation, so the head all but fizzled. Still, a nice color. Bright, sharp citrus smell - meyer lemons, a little pine. More pine on the taste side. Very clean feel in the mouth, with sweet lemon zest, some ammonia. The sweetness was more evident the more I drank.

Nice amber appearance with a slight white head. Citric aroma with backdrop of sweetness from the malt and some pine. Some citric flavors, some sweetness from the malt backbone, and dry, earthy, piney finish. Moderate level bitterness but nothing offensive to a non-hophead like me. A nice medium bodied to this with some carbonation. Overall, a nice beer that I enjoy but not one that I find myself visiting too often.

The beer pours a hazy, honey-amber color with a slight off-white head that leaves a good amount of lace throughout. A rich bouquet of tropical fruits (pineapple, grapefruit) meets slight piney notes in this very hoppy nose. A good deal of bready malt is well met with tropical fruit and citrus flavors similar to the nose. These flavors fade quickly, although the body is medium-light, with some chewiness, and moderate amounts of carbonation. Dry-hopped and tasty.

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

Poured from 12oz brown bottle to a Perfect Pint glass.

A - The beer pours a hazy light amber color with a 1/2 finger of head and good lacing throughout the glass.

S - A pleasant aroma of citrus hops on the nose with hints of sweet fruit, cinnamon, and cloves. Not overpowering but pretty nice.

T - The beer starts very similar to the nose with a mild citrus hop character paired with a subdued sweetness attributable to the toasted grain bill. The middle really brings out a flavor of cloves and spice flavors and light fruit character.

M - Medium carbonation for the lighter end of medium body.

D - Pretty average.

Overall, its been years since I've had a Hazed & Infused. I remember more hop character on the nose and on the palette. This beer certainly wasn't bad just not what I remembered. I would give it another shot.

Had on tap.

Arrived a clear gold with a tiny head. Not very good lacing.

Smell was caramel along with some roasted malt and a hint of coffee. A bit earthy.

The earthyness continues with the taste. There is a nice roastiness with the malts to go along with the earthy hoppyness. A moderate bitterness is prevalent throughout. A pretty good beer that I would get again.
