I…I…I…IPA it is a changin’, haze is the new black, henceforth Hazy Train will be crowned the Prince of Dankness. Feel free to crush your pint of Hazy Train with reckless abandon and revel in its juicy nature and hop character that is cranked up to 11; just do yourself a favor and don’t pee on the Alamo.”

Glassware: IPA glass.

Appearance. Pale light mustard body with a sturdy two finger head perched on top. It takes a while to break up as it weaves a fine lace down the glass.

Aroma: Displaying lots of dank wet hops, rotting leaves, eucalyptus, orange peel and aniseed. We just picture lush green forests every time we take a whiff. Picking up some hallmark brekky juice as it settles in as well – peach, apricot, papaya, guava and melon. Absolutely bursting with aroma.

Flavour: Sweet baby jeebus this is good! Like the aroma it’s jam packed with dank, wet and herbaceous hops, some spiciness giving a little rise to pepper and curry leaf along the way. Juicy notes of peach, melon, guava and apricot mixed in among a bit of grapefruit, orange and pine which lead to a drying finish with a grassy and herbaceous back palate.

Mouthfeel: Creamy texture, mild-medium body. Co2 is right on the money. 6.9% ABV is nicely hidden.

Overall: It’s the full package! We can not fault one part. From the appearance to the texture and even to the brilliant artwork on the can which is very eye-catching. Words just won’t do it justice. Magnificent!
