Against the Grain Brewery Clearly Everybody Wants Some Hazy Boi IPA – American IPA at 7.2% ABV (C$6.03 at Collective, 473 ml, best before 25-Sep-2020, acquired 24-Jan-2020, reviewed 2-Feb-2020)

Appearance: hazy medium gold with one fat finger of rocky white head diminishing gradually to a thick persistent cap, moderate soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: citrus, tropical fruit, caramel, stone fruit, grass & pine. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, short duration mild bitter finish. (3/5)

The label calls this a “vicious display of conformity”, and I’m inclined to believe that all jokes aside they only grudgingly went with this style. That grudging attitude shows in the sort-of-but-not-really haze level, as well as the barely-beats-out-the-malt level of hopping. All in all, it’s fine, but not even close to the juiciness and hop dominance I like to see in the style. (14/20)
