Highlander Strange Haze IPAHighlander Strange Haze IPA
Notes: We added late additions of Mosaic and Zythos hops showcasing the pineapple, tropical fruit and citrus hop character from these varieties.
The body is light, bitterness is low, but the hop flavor and aroma are definitely prominent.

Oh yea, and – it’s hazy!

Poured from a can into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a very hazy looking orange juice like color with a thick and big billowy white head. The head has a fantastic level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a ton of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the brew is massive of a nice hop blend of grapefruit and pine hop mixed with some sweeter aromas of some lighter bready and hay smells mixed with a little bit of a tropical fruit aroma of mango and pineapple.
Taste – The taste begins with a rather bready flavor that is mixed with some tropical fruits and a big showing of tangerine, orange, and some light hay. There is also a light grapefruit hop taste upfront, which seems to dwindle as the taste moves forward. While the grapefruit fades, some other hop tastes of a lighter pine and herb take its place. Toward the end a little bit of graininess and some flavors of yeast and grass join the rest of the flavors, producing a somewhat lightly dank hopped, but citrus sweet taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is slightly thicker and more chewy to average in terms of thickness and creaminess while the carbonation of this brew is rather low. For the mix of light dank and fruity citrus sweet the feel is rather nice and makes for an easy sipper.
Overall – A decent and sweet citrusy hazy IPA. A little on the lighter side hop wise, and a bit sweeter, but balanced none the less.

12 oz can, thanks bro- Pours hazy orangeish golden with a medium white head. Aroma is citrusy, tropical fruits, melon, juicy. The flavor is off, or some sort of fruit i wasn't expecting, and spices. The melon and some tropical fruits do show, but an odd flavor is dominant here, not sure how to describe it. Not bad just don't know how to explain it.
