Make America Juicy AgainMake America Juicy Again
Notes: Hazy New England-style IPA. This is all about bringing the juice back to American beer. It isn’t about big football commercials and fancy packaging. It is about the liquid in the can. We spent our money (which is your money if you think about it) on an insane amount of the best hops available, so the can ain’t fancy, but the beer certainly is. Hazy, luscious, and full of juicy hops. This beer is brewed with no bittering hop addition, just whirlpool and insane amounts of dry-hopping. That results in a gentle bittering and a huge, juicy hop profile. Vote Juicy!

Can from Brewers Haven.Hazy straw color with active, billowing head. Light, citrusy, hoppy aroma. Juicy taste, as is all the rage thee days. Still good, but the style is becoming ubiquitous. Crushable.? Yes.

Pours a dense faded orange, heavy head and lacing and some debris. Upon the tongue, very silky feel, creamy, but the taste slightly underwhelming. Easy drinking, but one note.,I get creamsicle with a pinch of lemon. Finishes as it starts, nice feel, but no complexity. Overall, very drinkable, but not noteworthy.

i have really come to love heretic, but still feel like i havent had all that many of their beers. this is a great hazy ipa here, one of their best hoppy beers i have had. its very yellow in color, almost oddly pale, not super dense, soft and pillowy looking from the tap, a short but lasting half inch of white head on it, good carbonation, and immediately looking brighter and more refined than the average for the style, sunny and inviting. the nose is great, maybe citra forward, it has that almost delicate nature even though the hops are bold and fresh, if that makes sense, sweet orange, lemon curd, lemongrass, very summery and sexy, not a whole lot from the grain, and just a little bit of crackery yeast character to me, keeping it dynamic. very juicy indeed, well named. definitely citra forward in the flavor too, but i get some fresh flowers too, elderflower maybe, and a little green apple crispness. no oiliness to the hops for how robust they are, some melon in there, a clean dry finish too, no bitterness at all, and very little from the grain, more a textural contribution than a flavor one, which is fine for a juicy hazy like this. an excellent example of the style i think, familiar in some ways but better than most, i like the little bit of yeast character, and overall this is another really solid brew from these guys. fresh as can be and nicely refined. one to seek out.

If beer is politics then the reigning incumbent hails form the Hazy party. Heretic is here to keep that incumbent in power with a juicier, hazier ale that's low in bitterness and bold in hop flavor. We're not likely to see any bitter challenger in power any time soon.

Hazy orange and caught in a pastel austere, the heady Make America Juicy Again abounds with a strong citronella perfume that hosts a collection of citrus, topical, herbal and spicy fragrances. But the early sips say something different. A sweeter tone greets the tongue with a firm suggestive taste of cereal, starch, honey and shortcake.

But the rise of fruity hop impressions allow the middle palate to shine with tangerine, lime, mango, passionfruit and pineapple character. Bold, juicy and creamy hints of vanilla, the beer leans toward creamsicle character but with a snappy bitterness of orange peel, tea, hemp and verbena.

Medium bodied and finishing malty-dry, the juicy ale has a final cantaloupe juiciness to follow a slightly pithy orange bite for a refreshing, inviting and flavorful session. With beers like these in command, its not a question of how to make American juicy again, its about how to keep America juicy. -a task that doesn't seem to be in danger anytime soon.

Yellow body with a thin white head. Tropical aromas, citrus, especially lemon. Flavor is very tropical and citrus; pineapple, orange, mango, lemon. Very balanced with just a slight hint of candy malts. Delicious and highly drinkable.

355 ml can, from Vinmonopolet Verksgt., Stavanger. ABV is 6.5%. Yellow colour, only slightly hazy. Small white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, citrus and spruce. Refreshing flavour with the same elements. A moderate malty and fruity sweetness too, not too much.

On tap in Garden City ID; served in a snifter. Completely opaque orange body; doesn’t appear to be floaties, just a body like a smoothie with a fair amount of white head; orange, citrus, tropical fruit, touch of spice; hops deliver very juicy flavors and aromas, as well as a prickly bitterness that isn’t overwhelming; mouthfeel isn’t as full and fluffy as I expect from some NEIPA’s (especially one that looks like a smoothie) but overall this is a good beer, bordering on very good.

A-deep gold, slight haze, vigorous pour yielded only a temporary one-finger head
S-Lemon and caramel
T-Some juice (citrus not fruit), but not as much as the title would suggest
M-Medium (-) body, with moderate carbonation that does not present many bubbles but makes for above-average tingle on the palate. Pretty dry finish.
O-Good but not great, passes as a NEIPA but just barely

Heretic Make America Juicy Again
12 oz can
Canned on 3/30/20 in jet ink on the bottom of the can
Served in a Brewery Ommegang glass

*Quarantine 2020*

Pours a haze induced light mustard yellow with a cloudy appearance overall. A big ole sudsy head forms and leaves random trails of sticky lacings on the side of the glassware.

The nose reeks of hoppy goodness, you know the drill - citrus fruits with ripe pine cone.

Winner winner chicken dinner, this is a fantastic beer. I dig the soft mouthfeel with a hint of chalky yeast underneath it all (No Doubt emphasis). Obviously the hop profile is the name of the game here, hints of of mango, peach, tangerine and lime. All of these flavor profiles are present with a touch of sugary sweetness reminiscent of honey.

After a few more sips, I'm please to report we got 1-800-Hop-Burps on the scene. In closing, I'm glad I decided to take a chance and try this beer.
