Alaskan Brewing Hazy Bay
What the brewers say
"Juicy and flavorful hazy IPA with moderate hop aroma and bitterness."
What our panel thought
"Subtle, muted tropical fruit: guava, papaya, tangerine, lemon. Clean, crackery malt doesn’t contribute much; moderately low sweetness, muted bitterness. Smooth, medium-bodied. Finishes dry, some bitterness lingering. Tasty enough, but aroma is pretty low for an IPA."
What our editors thought
"Zesty lemon-lime nose, touch of earthy grain. The sip is soft and fruity yet lean—the carbonation scrubs any sweetness for a fruit-essence quality rather than juice. On the sparing side of juicy and hazy."
