Product details

New England IPAs have certainly gained traction as a mainstay of the craft beer scene. The hazy light color and massive amount of late-addition hops create a delicious beer oozing with hop flavor and aroma. Now, it’s time up the ante, and this deck is stacked. Eight unique ingredients, just over eight percent ABV and bursting with massive flavors and aromas of tangerine, orange, pineapple, mango, slightly resinous pine, and sweet hard candy makes Hazy Eights an unbeatable play.

Brewing Notes

  • Style: Double NE IPA
  • Fermentation Range: 64-74 F
  • Original Gravity: 1.078
  • SRM: 4
  • IBUs: 53
  • ABV: 8.3%

Tasting Notes

  • Aroma: Faint bready malt notes overshadowed by hop aromas of citrus, tropical fruit, pear, and subdued resinous pine.
  • Appearance: Medium to bright orange color with significant haziness. Tight bright white foam head with lasting stability. 
  • Flavor: Medium-low soft malt flavors of fresh multi-grain bread play a secondary role to huge hop and yeast-derived flavors of orange, mango, pineapple. Moderate bitterness is well balanced by the slightly sweet malt flavors that linger upon swallowing. 
  • Mouthfeel: Medium body with medium-high creaminess and mouthfeel. Very smooth and soft on the palate with a silky finish. 

Brewmaster Brad’s Notes:

“Now that the New England IPA style is around to stay, there is but one way to go with it - make it stronger! Loosely based on our popular Fruit Bazooka NE IPA kit, Hazy Eights Double NE IPA is a real ass-kicker. The combination of Amarillo® and El Dorado provides a spectrum of citrus and tropical fruit flavors, while the modest dose of Idaho 7 hops rounds out the fruity flavor profile and adds a little resinous pine note to make things even more interesting. Brewed with the lightest malts around and a slug of simple corn sugar, this beer will maintain as light of a color as possible, while still fermenting to over 8% ABV. Despite the simple sugar addition, oats and wheat malt help to maintain a smooth, creamy body and create a tight, dense, and lasting foam head.”

Tasty beer with good aroma however, NOT HAZY!!!

Overall this is a good beer. The flavor profile was spot on and it’s very easy to drink given the highish ABV. However, if you’re looking for a hazy IPA this is not it. The beer Looks more like a West Coast style pale ale instead of anything from New England. Additionally, it’s lacking significantly in the head department. Im not saying I would not try to make it again but, based on my first brewing of it, it’s not as advertised.

Delicious Imperial IPA w/ great color and aroma

The Hazy 8's recipe produced a beautifully light colored and aromatic delicious IPA. Since the pandemic, I have bought quite a few more recipe kits than I used to. I preferred making my own recipes, but this one would certainly be a good base for future recipes.

It’s a Crusher

I used imperial juice yeast and it came out great! Definitely a crushable beer!

Will do again

First time was with the extract. Just did this in the all-grain. This is a solid NEIPA with great fruit aromas. Holds a head of foam well. Started with distilled water and used the water chemistry additions from Flora Brewing. Transferred well after a 24 hour cold crash, but still has a great haze. Ended up with 8.6% ABV. I'll come back to this one.
