Bad Shepherd Hazy IPA

Bad Shepherd

Published August 9, 2019

The Bad Shepherd brewers appear to have been studying up on all things hazy. As part of their IPA Series, they released a New England IPA last year that didn't quite hit the mark, a little lacking in fullness of body and with a potent bitterness to boot. Roll forward to late winter 2019 and they're back with Hazy IPA – and backing themselves to the extent this is no one-off but a new addition to their core lineup, and one that follows this year's Oatmeal Stout into schmick white cans.

Pouring with a consistent, cloudy, pale golden haze, mango and green pineapple get things rolling before it takes a turn towards more citrusy flavours. While there's a smoothness to the mouthfeel, the resinous nature of the hops also lend it a lean, dry finish and, as with a growing number of hazy IPAs, a bitterness that's veering closer to traditional IPA territory than the brekkie juice like releases that were everywhere at the start of the year.
