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.

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.

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.
