Batsquatch Hazy IPABatsquatch Hazy IPA
Notes: Tropical juicy IPA using Mosaic, El Dorado & Belma hops

For years, rumors have circled that deep in the woods on Mount St. Helens lives the fabled Batsquatch. While there are many tales of Batsquatch, they are all a bit hazy on the details, which makes the truth such a juicy mystery. So what better way to honor the elusive legend than with a hazy IPA? Perfect for camping and potentially making a new friend. This juicy, cloudy IPA features intense tropical flavors and aromas.

12oz, canned on 05/24/2019. Hazy tangerine colored ale with a super foamy ivory colored head. Aroma is muted with some citrus and tropical fruit. Flavors are bolder: fruit cup, pineapple, pear, peach, mango, apricot. Fuller body, creamy & smooth, modestly bitter finish. This was hood and quite refreshing, but it's unlikely that I'd get it again.

Tastes absolutely nothing like an IPA. Tastes more similar to a Miller Lite or Coors Light. The photo of the beer on the company’s website is what they wish their beer looked like. Nothing like the haziness they show, nor the color. Bad beer.

Hard to pass on a NE style IPA from Rogue, especially with the awesome label art.
Pours hazy apricot, nice lacing, aromas of tropical fruits, mango, guava, light citrus. Taste more of the same, with some lingering resin. Creamy body.
Very nice, even if not as extremely juicy as some East Coast versions

12oz can poured into Duvel tulip. CANNED ON 05/11/19 printed on bottom of can. So this one is only a month old, and so relatively fresh. Picked it up at the grocery store for $2 for a single can.

Appearance - Pours a creamy offwhite head that strongly maintains its shape, like the head of a root beer float, but tighter. Great retention. Thick, semi-loose lacing with decent stick. Completely opaque pale orange body, but is a deep, medium dark orange with backlight. 4.75

Smell - Dank, rounded fruit body like orange with a brighter pineapple like hoppiness on top. 4.75

Taste - Delicious. Well balanced. As with the smell, has both bright citric tones atop a rounded, full body. 4.75

Mouthfeel - Full bodied, bold and filling, yet clean and refreshing. Faint astringency builds up in the finish but not enough to detract. 4.5

Overall - Delicious, balanced, well rounded, interesting, and perhaps even sessionable depending on your mood. 4.5

Sems underrated to me. Similar to
IPAs i had at Tree House since i live in MA. NE IPA cloudy look with a modest head but a wonderful tropical fruit salad aroma. Outstanding delectable smooth balanced taste with little bitterness- one of The best IPAs ive tasted and went down so perfectly.

Hazy orange gold with one finger of off white head. Modest lacing.
Smell is orange pineapple and pine. Some bready malt.
Taste is orange pineapple mango and pine. Bready malt for support.
Mouthfeel is light to medium with good carbonation. The finish is lightly dry and mildly bitter.
Overall a tasty IPA. Canned on 11/04/2019. I have a second one to try tomorrow.

Ultra-milky orange sunshine body, excessive silky off-white head with ample lacing. The nose smells of plastic, pine, and general fruit salad, heavy on honeydew. Taste has some fruity tropical impressions, moderate to strong bitterness, some pine resin, a bit of wheaty malt. Feel is nice- soft and pulpy, full bodied, assertive but non-aggressive carbonation.
I had high hopes for this based on the Rogue brand and alluring artwork, but smell- and taste-wise it was indistinguishable from a host of other hazy IPA's. Enjoyable, flawed, expensive, unabashed.

Poured from a single-serve can into a tulip.

Pours opaque/cloudy. A shade darker than yellow, but not quite orange or gold. A nice dense two-fingered head that is foamy and creamy.

The aromas are rather down the middle for the style for the most part, although there are hints of "dank" hop that are more present than the norm. Orange, mango, and pineapple notes forward, with hints of lemon and white grapefruit. Nice aromas but muted and a little muddled.

The flavor is initially rather sweet, with juicy orange flavors on the tip of the tongue. Sharper citrus flavors cross the mid-palate, although they lack any distinct flavor, along with some pine hoppiness. Resin and dank meet up with white pepper, white grape, and grainy notes at the end, along with a hint of booze, all of which help offset the initial sweetness.

The brew has a nice balanced drinkable presence, with medium body and excellent carbonation. The dank hops and hints of alcohol provide a nice drying finish for a brew that initially presents somewhat sweet.

Overall, a good expression of the style that showcases a bit more bitterness than many NEIPA's.
