Style: New England IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.60%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
A kicked up version of Haze, Very Hazy is a beer that makes us Very Happy! Very Hazy conveys all the beautiful flavors of Haze, but with even greater depth and potency. Pungent grapefruit notes greet your palate while an underlying current of soft tropical fruit dances in the background. Just the right amount of bitterness balances the sweet fruit flavors while a velvety soft mouthfeel make you easily (and dangerously!) forget this one clocks in at 8.6% ABV. A huge and beautiful beer that maintains softness and delicacy - a beer we are very excited about!

Pure hop juice right here. There's ethanol on the finish that's a bit of a let down, but yum everywhere else.

Call me crazy - but my first experience with Very Hazy was not a particularly overwhelming one.

I love Hazy. It was the first Tree House beer that really blew me away. It has only fairly recently been replaced by Alter Ego as my favorite Tree House IPA - maybe my favorite IPA of all, actually. My expectations for Very Hazy were, thus, pretty high. Add to that the hype factor and the insane ratings on every beer site out there.

But I didn't find the nose or the taste to be particularly stellar. It has a slightly more complex, layered flavor to it, versus the base beer, but I didn't feel like the overall product had elevated itself above the base. It's sweet and lightly malty, juicy, hazy, and smells nicely floral - but it just doesn't taste as great as Haze.

Maybe a fresher can would be a different experience - but this one was not at all old.

So, I don't know. The hype has let me down. I'll try another can and re-review at some point, hopefully. Fingers crossed.
