It’s finally starting to happen… Decent hazy IPA’s are finally making it into national grocery stores and places like Total Wine. That may not be a big deal where you live but here in Sarasota, Florida, it can be difficult to find a good New England style IPA that is from out of state. I’ve recently noticed that Voodoo Ranger Juicy IPA is showing up in more stores which is great. I think it is a solid hazy that is mass distributed.
On my last trip to Total Wine, I was pleasantly surprised to find several different IPA’s including a few milkshake IPA’s, Brut IPA’s and some NEIPA’s. After scanning the isle for hidden gems, I finally landed on LOUD! Hazy DIPA by Almanac Beer Co, Orbital Tilt IPA by Captain Lawerence Brewing and a Mexican style Chocolate Stout with Coconut by Clown Shoes Beer Co. I will be doing some videos on those as well. Stay tuned. I am not really a beer reviewer but you can find a few notes about the beer below and you can also watch my video on IGTV.

About the Beer:
For a hazy IPA that was canned more than 3 months ago, it tasted pretty fresh. When I opened the can, I was hit by wall of tropical fruit aromas. It had a smooth, silky mouthfeel and light bitterness. I would love to try this fresh.
