Our flagship IPA features a huge citrus and tropical fruit hop character from the Mosaic, Citra & El Dorado hops and softer, smoother mouthfeel from the adjusted water chemistry, higher protein malts, and lower attenuation. The end result is a beer reminiscent of citrus juice with extra pulp, thus the name Juicy Bits.

Pours a completely opaque yellow orange. Looks and smells like a slightly thin orange juice. Taste is initially sweet orange, but then notes of melon and rind take over with a touch of piney bitterness on the swallow. Carbonation is a little stronger than I expected, but isn't too heavy-handed.

The name has put me off trying this beer before now, as it led me to believe it would overly sweet, and while the initial impression is of sweetness, it has a nice amount of bitterness to compensate. Overall very well- balanced.

Pours a nice dark orang with one finger head. Nice citra and hops combined to make a smooth filling IPA. A highly rated winner from weldwerks!

Deep dense dark orange look with a 2 finger thick white head. Great lacing.
Intense citrus notes jump out of the glass.
Oranges, melons and pine bitterness.
Well balanced smooth and thick.
Deserves the world class tag.

16oz can. Canning date stamped on bottom lip as '07/10/23'.
Hazy, straw colored body. Three fingers of white head with initial pour. Later, some islands and a high cap. Left behind are scattered strings of lacing.
Aroma of ripe citrus and tropical fruit. Sniff of onion and resin.
Taste is ripe to slightly overripe citrus and tropical fruit. Juicy and honey sweet. Very little bitterness presence. Aftertaste is a rapid skirting of the hops. Very end is a pleasant pine resin expression.
Soft and thick mouth feel. Coats the mouth and tongue. Slight tongue sting. Very good carbonation.
Very well realized NEIPA. Beer candy like.

Smells of dank, citrus, tropical fruits, pine, resin, and orange juice. The taste follows the nose. It has a balance of sweet and citrus like bitterness almost like grapefruit. Medium to light body with moderate smooth carbonation. I got this in North Carolina and I’m drinking it in Summerville South Carolina August 20, 2023. At the Gerber’s home.

In my 45 years I've called six different U.S. cities home. None of those six have been Greeley, Colorado. And frankly, it's not a likely candidate to become number seven. However, that's not because I don't appreciate it. I currently live nearby and for all the S**t it catches, it beats a lot of other places. The artistic talent, the agriculture, the community...the beer. It's all underappreciated and underrated. So with that in mind, I review a beer I never wanted to like, but nonetheless fell in love with and have in my refrigerator almost all the time.

APPEARANCE: These days, this beer pours about the same orange color as the can it comes in. Well, maybe more like the slightly more yellow-ish orange band around the bottom of the can. That's the perfect fit. It's pretty opaque, even for a Hazy IPA. A fresh printer-paper white head rises slightly above the surface with a heterogeneous mix of bubble sizes. It's not a tall head, but it holds its ground. Despite the opacity, there is still a sense of liveliness in the bubbles rushing up the sides of the glass.

SMELL: I get orange peel, vanilla, and lactose in equal parts on the first sniff...pretty much every time. Underneath there's a piney character with a touch or fresh cut grass. The latter of which compels that first, refreshing sip.

TASTE: Orange from the nose is still present, but now it's in 3rd or 4th place. If I didn't know better I would think that Yuzu was added to this brew (tastes like Lemon + Honey), but even if it's just the hops those two flavors ring strong. An pleasant Earthiness provides the base/backbone to the palate. A nice, bitter finish begs for the next sip.

MOUTHFEEL: It seems sweet...at first. But it isn't. It may be bittersweet, but it's dryer than it feels like it should be. That sweetness, as mentioned above, gives way to that dry, bitter finish. The body is somewhere between light-to-medium and medium-heavy. It's oddly hard to tell and sort of depends on your mood. I don't think I've ever written anything like this in any of my previous 500+ reviews. It's a unique feel.

OVERALL: I refused to drink this beer for over a year after it came out. The hype train was too much for me. I did not want to like it. Deep down I knew I would. A friend basically forced me to try it one night and the first sip was pure gold. Is it life changing? No. Is it perfect Hazy IPA? No. That status is reserved for beers named Le Jus. We'll get to that another time. So what is this? It's a legendary example of a relatively new style of beer and one of Colorado's finest examples of creativity, experimentation, and mostly, high quality execution. Nice job, Weldwerks. You're legendary.
