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.”

I can see clearly now it is hazy out

I must say I think this was the best kit I have made to date and that is no small claim. I bought this for the annual clambake as I need one more beer to fill a tap and it was the first to go. It only lasted an hour but with a 100 people I guess you have that. Great beer i am going to order another one and maybe I will get to enjoy some of this one or Maybe not.

Failure to Launch

This was comimg a long great but after 3 weeks in bottles it still hasn't carbonated. My first beer fail. Used the Imperial Juice yeast which was violent to start, definitely use a blow off tube setup for the first couple days. Will let sit another week or two before dumping. Wish I had a keg system as it was smelling amazing on bottling day. Regarding color it was a beautiful orange hazy as Shane mentioned but has darkened significantly from week 3 to now, curious why it didn't keep that hue, I was so excited.

Best kit so far

I brewed this with a pound of lactose to give it a little milkshake ipa feeling and it’s by far the best beer I’ve made. It’s only been in the keg for 2 weeks and people keep coming over drinking it up so it’s almost gone. Not sure if anyone would know, but the first week the beer was almost orange juice colored hazy and creamy. The last week the beer has been not as hazy looking and had a little more bitter aftertaste, maybe all the lactose settled to the bottom? Regardless, I might just always have a batch of this ready to go now.
