BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Heretic Brewing Company
California, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
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!

Canned 10/25/17

Pours a gigantic 2+ finger foamy fluffy head that fades semi slowly with tons of lacing, a murky fairly hazy honey pear tan color

Nose is a bit light, some citrus, tropical fruits, little pineapple, orange juice notes, pretty faint

Taste big tropical fruits, pineapple, orange juice and mango puree, guava, papaya, quite juicy, some creamy wheat and malt base, I almost think there is lactose in this, some pear and stone fruits as well, very light bitterness.

Mouth is med bod, fairly creamy almost lactose like creamy, tons of fluffy carb

Overall, I wasn't feeling this one, first the aroma was very light, second it feels like they forced the entire idea of the NEIPA creamy juicy feel with adding lactose or something, and the hop isomers and juicy fruits weren't really suspended in the haze, but there is some promise in there.

Good beer but with the new style and some beers really standing out this is just mediocre to me. Good beer but doesn’t stack up with some of the better examples. Would be a stretch even calling this “hazy”. More like a heavily dry hopped American ipa in my opinion.

12 oz. canned 10/25/17

Pours very cloudy hazy yellow gold with a creamy frothy white foam head. Smells like big tropical fruits, passionfruit, guava, mango, pineapple, orange citrus, grapefruit, lemon, lime, berry, light caramelized bready malt, with dank resiny spicy floral earthy herbal grassy pine. Tastes a bit lighter in flavor with similar tropical citrusy fruit notes, some light caramelized malt, with some spice and dank resiny floral earthy herbal grassy pine. Feels medium-light bodied, slick and smooth with moderate carbonation. Overall a nice IPA.

Canned 8/31. Seems either a bit weaker than I remember or not as juicy as I thought it was. Yellowish gold, cloudy as hell, foamy and lacey. Slightly fruity hop scent with a mild bitterness underneath. Taste has slight more bitterness than citrus. Pretty smooth feel. Not bad, wish I reviewed it sooner.

Pours a beautiful bright sunny yellow with a fair amount of haze.

Tropical fruit notes of mango and pineapple meet citrusy fruit notes.

Fruity tropical and citrusy notes come through in flavor but are overall underwhelming.

Medium-bodied, medium carbonation, easy drinking.

Overall, a rather underwhelming brew but drinkable nonetheless.

16 oz draft at bar- Pours hazy golden with a small bar sized head that retains nicely and wonderful sheeting lace. Aroma is Mandarin oranges, creamy creating a creamsickle sweetness, fresh and refreshing. The taste is resinous, piney, more hop forward than the aroma led on, creamy and juicy, fruits. Yum...

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 12 oz can on September 22, 2017. This is labeled as a hazy New England style IPA but it's not as hazy or juicy as the real thing. Still a decent beer though.

Rocky head of fluffy foam initially, fades quickly like a deflating soufflé.
Soapy suds stick to the glass. Lasting surface coverage. Pale hazy orange tone.

Citric and floral hop aromas, sandalwood and vitamin c tablets.
Taste is citric and floral as well, orange and tangerine peel and pith.
Light lingering bitterness in the the aftertaste. Fairly creamy feel but a little thin.
Overall it's just fine, not mind-blowing but fairly sessionable.
