Notes: Hazy Oat IPA

Cloud Hopping is our fluffy, double dry hopped, hazy IPA. Brewed with barley, oats and white wheat. Hopped at a rate of five pounds per barrel with Citra, Galaxy, and Citra Cryo.

Hazy as advertised; completely opaque in thick portions of the glass. Dark orange color with a hint of brown. Modest head production from a strong pour, with weak retention.

Big blast of herbal and juicy hop notes: grapefruit, orange, oregano, mint, mild-to-moderate pungent dankness, mango, pineapple.

Surprisingly light on the palate, and far less smooth and creamy than you'd expect for a hazy IPA with oats and wheat. Yes, the ABV is on the lower end of the spectrum for a single IPA, but a good Hefe will likely clock in under this ABV, and will provide more body and smoothness - not to mention other single IPAs from the Northeast. Very little sting, and modest perceived bitterness.

Flavor is quite nice, but loses a little bit of the impact with the slightly watery mouthfeel. I get a blend of lemon, orange, mint, pineapple, very low dankness and modest pungency, a touch of peppered cracker, leafy green herbs and grass.
