Haze Craze is our take on the hazy North East IPA.  Also known as a New England IPA recipe, or a Juicy IPA, it is one of the fastest growing beer styles in the US.  The style accentuates hop character while maintaining a smooth and creamy mouthfeel.  Light in color but hazy due to heavy dry hopping, yeast selection, as well as additions of oat and wheat .  Low in bitterness with a huge hop character due to hop-bursting, this beer will satiate even the biggest hop head.

The North East IPA has become popular nationwide thanks to breweries like Tree House Brewing, The Alchemist, Hill Farmstead and Grimm Artistanal Ales.  After my first taste of this delicious style, I knew that brewing it at home was a must.

Great recipe
I couldn't get the beer as hazy as expected, but flavor and aroma wise, it was a really, really good beer.

Huge hit!
I have not been a IPA fan but this recipe has changed my mind. I made this for my granddaughters I do barbeque. I had so many people come up to me and say it was the best beer they have had. I could not be happier with the results. Not overly bitter but tremendous hops flavor and aroma. I am buying another kit tonight for myself this time.

Great beer, even though I messed up
This was my second beer, and it tasted delicious. I accidentally put the cone hops in without using a mesh bag, and left them also in my fermenter which left me with less beer overall and some issues while bottling, but the beer still tasted amazing, definitely will buy again

Great IPA
This was the third brew I have done, and so far the best! I'm not a huge fan of IPA's, but this is amazing! I've already given away 8 bottles and they have all gotten rave reviews. If you are a fan of IPA's (or not) I would highly recommend this brew! Cheers.

I made a mistake in my water measurements somehow. Ended up kegging 4 gallons which pushed the ABV up to 8.7. The aroma and flavor were amazing. It was a big hit with people I shared with. My first time using whole cone hops... lesson learned. Next time use a hop filter. I had small flakes from the whole cone in my keg which occasionally plugged my poppit valve. Definitely will brew this one again.
Very hazy. Looks like a glass of orange juice.

Great first hazy
This is an excellent hazy brew kit – I liken its flavor to Sierra Nevada’s Hazy Little Thing (i.e. more on the bitter side for NE IPA’s, with a hint of mint), but with a delicious tropical scent. Others have described it as apricot-y, and my first pours seemed like spicy orange juice, which sounds weird but is what I was shooting for ?. The color was lovely, but more of a warm brown haze, rather than a vibrant orange that I’m looking for with hazies. The haze has filtered out over time, but it’s still got great flavor.

One issue I had was how to do the whole cone hops, and there wasn’t as much direction there as I had hoped. I ended up pouring them into the pot at the end of the boil, and then trying to filter them out as I poured into the primary carboy, but that was a real pain. If I brewed again, I’d use a second hop bag, or maybe just let them go into the beer? Anyone else approach this differently?

Flavor: 4/5 – Great, enjoyed by all, but not as unique and powerful as brewery-made hazies I’ve tried

Look: 4/5 – It’s got the haze, but not as dense as it could be

Ease of brewing: 4/5 – For a fairly complex beer, this was straightforward, save the whole cones

Recommendations: I might add a bit more mosaic the next time I brew this, and after I put it in the keg. I just like the mosaic flavor profile.
brew at week 1
brew at week 5 - less haze
