Hazy Eights Double NE IPA Extract Beer Recipe Kit
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 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.
- Style: Double NE IPA
- Fermentation Range: 64-74F
- Original Gravity: 1.078
- SRM: 4
- IBUs: 53
- ABV: 8.3%
- 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.”

Due to the high starting gravity of this kit, we recommend pitching multiple packs of yeast or preparing a yeast starter for best results.

My father and I brewed this kit together and tried it last night for his birthday. Amazing. This beer tastes like candy and has an amazing aroma. I do recommend using the liquid yeast in this one. We did come in a little lower than expected on the FG, but we plan to use a yeast starter next time and should be able to correct it no problem. Definitely worth the purchase and certainly will be brewing this again!!
I have made a couple of NE IPAs now and I am making this one for the second time now. This is probably the favorite of all my homebrews. Very similar to Sam Adams NE IPA, but better!.
Great kit. A++. go with the liquid yeast
I was looking for a recipe to duplicate a local craft beer and this was perfect. Nice hazy color and super hoppy. Did one gallon in the UKeg which was ready in three days and am now enjoying 40 bottles. A long brew but worth the wait.
Have brewed this several times. Love the recipe. Friends love this beer as well. Very good representation of the hazy style.
I recommended the imperial yeast and say it ups the flavor profile.
