Very Good
Notes: The first-ever nationally distributed oat milk-centric IPA, Hazy-O! took almost a year of R&D to perfect. In fact, to ensure they harnessed all the goodness of oat milk in Hazy-O!, Dogfish Head enlisted the help of oat milk scientists from Elmhurst 1925, a family-owned, plant-based milk producer out of New York. Using Elmhurst’s culinary prowess and its Unsweetened Milked Oats, made with only three simple ingredients – oats, water and a bit of salt, Dogfish Head finalized the recipe for Hazy-O!, and “ooooh,” it is delicious!

taster at Hangman. Hazy straw colored pour with a foamy white head. Aroma is grapefruit peel, grassy. Taste is more citrus, fruity, grassy, dry. Did not work for me.

This is the Dogfish Head beer I get when it's not a Seaquench Ale day. Normally, I drink it straight from the can like a heathen; today it made it to a pint glass. Amber-colored with short-lived 3-finger head and dense lacing. It's a gorgeous beer. Smells a little citrusy, tastes much less so. It's a very oaty beer. It's a little bizarre. It's definitely an IPA but doesn't taste like any other IPA I've tried. Milky, in a way that I don't even consider oat milk to be. Unique! Delightful. Variety is the spice of life. Very smooth flavor. It's a very carbonated beer; I wish it was less so. Smell also leaves something to be desired. But I don't drink a beer for the smell or the bubbles or lack thereof, I'm here for the flavor, and it TASTES great. I'm a fan.

Slightly hazy amber color with a small head and good lacing.

Smells of grassy hops and citrus.

Tastes of sweet smooth malt and citrus.

Very juicy and drinkable.

Live review. Poured from the can that my brother Pete obtained for me at the brewery in Delaware a few weeks ago. Stamped on the bottom is NOV 2022 D 131 2 2113 11. Poured into a clean, clear glass.

A: Generous frothy white head over a hazy (surprise, huh?) yellow body. Solid look.

S: Citrus, hops, rather standard smell. I did not pick up any of the oat milk in the smell.

T: Oat milk (and oats) I think really serve this beer well. It helps to balance out the sting of the citrus hops. Not only interesting but delicious. 4.5

M: Nice and full, I believe supported by the oat milk and oats. Feel lingers a while on my tongue. Really good. 4.25

D: Drinkability/Overall: High drinkability, overall a solid beer. 3.75

Thanks Pete!

Poured from a can, to a tulip glass. Head dissipated rather quickly. Little, to no lacing. Aroma of citrus and oats. A nice tasting NEIPA, that doesn’t feel real heavy like some NEIPA’s do. I would purchase it again.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a three finger head; excellent retention and sticky lacing

Smell: Oatmeal, biscuit and melon with a hint of orange

Taste: Orange flavors forward, almost like Tang, with melon and the malt underneath; the oat flavor is more subtle on the taste buds than it is in the aromatics; the finish has a moderate degree of bitterness

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation; slightly creamy

Overall: A middle of the road example of the style with some subtle differences that make it interesting

It's an interesting take on an IPA and rather delicious. Has the citrus backing but also a creamy-ness to it as well. Oatmilk made it sound a bit scary but it's an enjoyable take on an IPA. Easy to drink, not too high of ibus so a beginner to IPAs should like this one as well. Glad I have a 12 pack of it.

This beer was a huge disappointment. Might has well be Coors, not that I've had one in years. Cute packaging touting oat milk sold me but it might as well have said Corona.

Poured from a can. Orangish and hazy with a white head, a little sediment and lacing. Smells of grapefruit, orange, and pine. Flavor is a bitter hit with grapefruit and maybe pine. Eh

Hazy golden, decent initial head

Smell somewhat muted, mostly citrus

Taste muted too, I guess a NEIPA thing, but I always think they taste a bit watery, and this one is no exception.

Mouthfeel and overall highly drinkable, to be sure.

But considering the uniqueness of most DFH brews, I mean I don't think I could pick this out of a lineup.
