Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company The Shape of Haze to Come
What the brewers say
“While the bitterness in this beer is noticeably softer than any of our other double IPAs, it’s not gone, and the late kettle hopping combined with our dry hopping method has created a mango- and stone fruit–forward juicy IPA that is dank, juicy, hazy.”
What our panel thought
Aroma: “Fruity (orange, pineapple, hints of lemon), resinous (pine and peppery hops), earthy and dank. Medium-sweet malt, lightly caramelized.”
Flavor: “Rich hoppiness dominates this beer with citrus, tropical fruit, and pine throughout. Great balance, dry finish, notable hops bitterness, and everything persists well through the swallow. It’s very crisp and well-defined. Some noticeable heat on the back of your throat.”
Overall: “Great beer! It doesn’t have the lush, tropical punch of some New England IPAs, but it’s perfectly balanced, with nice fruity hops aromas and flavors, and complex from start to finish. Complex and endlessly interesting. Everything you want in an IIPA”.
