Description

Haze Craze is our take on the hazy North East IPA, also known as New England IPA or 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.

Recipe says dry hop days 3-7 and 7-10.. does that mean to dry hop For from day 3 until day 7? Or dry hop for 3-7 days?
Douglas w Tripp on Jan 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I've made this beer four times now. It's a favorite in my extended family. I have tried it both ways. It works fine either way, but I think the the beer has a juicier, slightly less hop forward finish if you use the later approach. I consider day 1 the day when fermentation actually starts. May take a day or two. I let it ferment from day 1 to 3, then add the first dry hop in the primary from days 3 to 7. Then rack to secondary and add the second dry hop from days 7 to 10. Also, I don't normally use strainer bags, but in this case, I find it helps. I keg and, with all of the hop additions, I find it easier to get a clean beer into the keg. Hope this helps. Haze Craze is a delicious beer. Enjoy!

It's been a hit so far, may do a dbl or triple batch next time, going way too fast.

Some like it Hazy
Smelled very tropical, especially at first. Easy brew. Hazy results. Worth the price of admission.

First try at a NEIPA
I enjoy drinking this more than any other IPA I’ve brewed. I strongly recommend CO2 pressurized vessel transfers for this beer. II am not set up for this, so my version of this brew suffers from oxidation (darker in color and diminishing hop qualities - aroma). That said, kegged this 2 week’s ago and still enjoying.

Don't Think Just Buy
This is an amazing brew. From the whole cone hops at flame out to cracking open my first bottle, it has been an incredible experience. After the brew, we transferred the whole cone hops from the boil into primary, pitched London III yeast (no starter), and let it sit for 10 days. I was worried that it had been left too long in primary because the beer started to clear. Transferred to secondary (whole cone hops made this step a challenge) then added second round of pellets and let it sit for 14 days. To our enjoyment, the haze came back with a vengeance and it hasn't settled out.

We bottled a week and a half ago with no issue and I just cracked opened our first bottle today. Carbonation is perfect and the haze still persists and won't settle. The aroma is citrusy and the flavor matches without any bitterness.

We plan to brew a 10 gallon batch of this recipe next.

Great tasting NEIPA
Very similar in taste and appearance to a very popular NEIPA made near Lansing Michigan. Ordered first kit, and it went fast. Tried to order more and they MoreBeer was out. Received an email a few weeks later that told me it was in stock, so I ordered two more. If you like this style, you will be very pleased. I mashed at 160, did not make a starter using the suggested Wyeast. Turned our great, but next I will use a starter.

Haze craze is awesome
Made this four times and plan to keep going. It has a dedicated tap in my garage and it is a favorite among my extended family and friends. I've had a number of brewers try this beer and in our combined opinions, it is on par with some of the really big name popular NEIPAs.

Epic Hazy
Just finish fermenting the all grain version last week and it turned out incredible. It is packed with dry hops and comes out super lush with flavor and aroma. I used the London Ale III 1318 and highly recommend you do the same. The yeast plays a really big part in this beer so make sure you don't just pitch a Safale-05!

Excellent Ale!
I brewed this all grain batch for the first time, used GIGA Vermont Yeast. Mashed at 151 using my RIMS system, fermented at 67 degrees for 4 days and then hopped in fermentor (SS Brewbucket) then transferred to corny keg and third hopped on day 7-10, pumped to new corny on day 11 till 15 at 65 degrees, crashed at 36 degrees on day 15 to 16 , hit with 13 psi for 10 days and served.........wow, what a grand brew, I have a new all time favorite. I really like the GIGA yeast, great finish. This kit is very well put together, I have brewed many of More Beers kits and they are all very good, but this one really hits it! Thanks More Beer for the wide variety of kits you put together, something for everyone....Thanks!

Wow! Excellent!
I just kegged this today after a 12 day ferment, used the all-grain kit with the Giga Vermont IPA yeast using my Grainfather. Fermented in a bucket, dry-hopped loose and had to give the 2nd addition (at 7 days) a bit of a stir-in. Fermented at room temp here in Florida which was around 80F. I racked to a Corny keg through a BIAB bag to catch the inevitable hops and trub.

I've really only had one NEIPA since they are rare locally, but this is very close in taste to the awesome Singlecut Billy 18 Watt that I've had multiple times in NYC.

It's not fully carbonated yet, but it's like a glass of grapefruit juice. Yum! Low bitterness but nice hop taste and aroma. Don't turn up your nose at this stuff just because it's cloudy. Definitely worth a try and I'm brewing this again real soon!
