Even the larger brewers are joining the haze craze. New Belgium Brewing is the latest brewer to enter the Hazy IPA market with its new Voodoo Ranger Juicy Haze IPA.
A medium bodied, unfiltered IPA, Juicy Haze IPA is packed with tropical aromas and big citrus flavors that is a result of the blend of Citra hops combined with Cascade, Centennial, Simcoe and Nugget.
“It’s no secret that hazy IPAs are incredibly popular right now and New Belgium is the perfect brewery to roll this out on a national scale without compromising quality,” said New Belgium Brewer, Cody Reif in a statement. “With more than 10 years brewing unfiltered beers and the ongoing success of our hoppy portfolio, Juicy Haze continues our tradition of pushing boundaries while making creative and innovative beers.”
Voodoo Ranger Juicy Haze IPA Stats:
Voodoo Ranger Juicy Haze IPA pours pale orange with an opaque haze and bright white head. Vibrant lemon, orange, guava and pineapple notes are balanced with a light grassy and caramel-like malt aroma giving the beer a sweet start that transitions into a smooth, bitter flavor. The soft, velvety mouthfeel wraps up with a pleasantly clean finish.
