"A hazy twist on your main squeeze, this juice bomb explodes with
notes of orange citrus sweetness and a soft malt body" Fresh Haze
Back again with another IPA, this time it's coming in a massive can
holding 19.2 FL (I googled it and that's about 1.25 pints). I've
been drinking a lot of hazy IPAs, also known as New England style,
over the past year so I'm looking forward to sampling this one.
My first impression is that it goes down silky smooth for an IPA.
The orange juice cuts out the bitterness from the hops almost
completely. The taste is well balanced and I can pick up on both
the orange citrus flavor and the IPA underneath. It also tastes
very fresh, although I have no way of knowing if that's true or not.
Overall very enjoyable and easy to drink. I wish I had another one
to continue drinking.
- Would I buy it again? Yes
- How much could I drink in one night? Enough to get me to start
making bad decisions without realizing how far gone I am.
