    I live in LINCOLN, NEBRASKA and my local brewery BOILER BREWING is doing a nice HAZY IPA called THAT! (Totally Hazy And Turbid). Boiler Brewing is actually the only brewery in Nebraska doing the Hazy IPA thing. My question is what is your states BEST HAZY IPA/DIPA? Cheers!

    Tired Hands makes a slew of them.

    My personal favorite is Alien Church.

    Cheers!

    Edit: also a shout out to Pineal.

    Actually brewed in NY, Upstate Double.

    NY company but the beer is brewed out of state, Grimm Lambo Door.

    I know Washington is not known for hazy beer, but Fremont's Phantom Chair is super good. It has just the right balance between juiciness and bitterness. I know Reubens has a hazy IPA as well, but I haven't had it yet.

    But the JIL we have in Chicago is brewed here in Chicago, at Aquanaut (and Transient got its start here, as far as I know). That's why I threw it out there.

    If we're talking a beer that is not brewed by someone with ties to another state, I'd probably go with the first batch of Galaxy Bowl by Hop Butcher.

    Is it really a "HAZY" beer?

    Ehhhh, there's light making it through... a good hazy beer is so dense light cannot escape it.

    ...wait, no, I'm thinking of a black hole. Carry on.

    I liked Fantasy Factory from Karben4, although that's more similar to an Alchemist-style beer (lots of hop sediment) than a Treehouse beer.
    The bottle and tap versions of PseudoSue, KingSue, etc. are super hazy. The canned version of PS is not (although that may soon change).

    Literally the only hazy beers I know of brewed in Arizona are the Dirty Hop Water Series from AZ Wilderness. Very limited availability too. If someone else knows of others, please chime in.

    Your best bet for haze in AZ is to look for some Modern Times special releases.

    Clarification: Do you really mean hazy or more turbid/murky/opaque?

    That's the haze I personally love. No yeast, all hop poly phenols.

    South of Eleven by Hoof Hearted, even though Dragonsaddle, Konkey Dong, and Roller Blabe get most of the attention.

    Yup, it's so great. I'm lucky to have access to it whenever it comes out, which has been quite a lot lately.

    Eh, I mean, that's literally what every Madison person has told me and I just can't get into them. Karben4 makes fine beers for sure, but nothing on the level of TG and certainly not TH or whatever. They're fine for just a nice, local IPA.

    Great notion and claim 52 make some pretty good examples of the substyle but my favorite one would have to be Story of the ghost by BLOCK 15. That beer is amazing.

    Waves is cloudy but Haka is turbid as hell

    It's more the "unfiltered" look of something like Heady Topper that really hazy.
    Listen, by no means am I saying it's on that level; I was just saying it's a good unfiltered IPA from Wisconsin. I also used to love NG's IIPA (before Scream), but I don't know how it would hold up now, either (nor was it hazy).
