COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly known as Hazed and Infused

This unfiltered dry-hopped ale is "hazed" in its natural state and "infused" with a Crystal and Centennial hop blend, creating a flavorful aromatic brew. 12.5 Plato

Hazy in its natural unfiltered state, Hazed is dry-hopped during fermentation infusing big, fresh hop flavor and aroma into the beer without adding bitterness, making Hazed a very approachable hoppy brew. Tapping into the creative spirit that launched Colorado’s First Microbrewery, the brewers at Boulder Beer Company have blended together four different hop varieties to give this amber ale a unique aroma, with just enough yeast for a full mouth feel and a smooth, easy finish. So sit back, relax and get hazed.

This poured a copper color with a moderate white head. The aroma contains some citrus, brown sugar, and caramel. The flavor is somewhat bitter with a lot of caramel showing up. The citrus flavor I’m getting is orange and lemons. This is straight up an English Pale Ale I dont care what the brewer says. Overall this is ok, I like my pale ales a little less malty though.

harrisoni (15319) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2015
Bottle from gbbf 2015 and drunk at home. Clear amber copper brown colour lasting thin white head. some caramel on the aroma. Some light hop. Grassy hop. Light bitterness. I mean it’s like a not very good UK golden ale. In fact it’s an English bitter. Wow we have come full circle. I started drinking brown UK bitter and now we have the emperors new clothes of a session pale ale that is a UK bitter. Weird. Not the beer weird. Just life is weird. And cyclical. OK bitter.

Draft at Thunder and Buttons. Pours clear bright copper with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like delicious grapefruit, nutty malt, light pine, light caramel, and citrus hops. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like citrus hops, nutty malt, toasted caramel, and light pine.

lionus (10) - , Wisconsin, USA - AUG 5, 2015
Well balanced contrast to the "Session IPA" trend. Hop nose hits your right in the face, but without the overwhelming bitterness that seems to be characteristic of other beers. Nicely balanced. Great intro to craft beer or alternative to high alcohol IPA.

Draft pour pint at the lodge. When did hazed and infused stop being a thing? Still listed that way here. Pours an oily copper color with a thin head. Sweet, malt forward aroma. Flavor is a little nutty, caramel, a cool hop finish. Refreshing. Good beer here.

SG111 (612) - New York, USA - JUN 30, 2015
Canned. Best by 08/05/15. Pour into a tulip. Pours very deep amber color with a sizeable beige head. Aroma is very floral, with pine and citrus notes. Distinct maltiness. Flavor is super malty. Some hoppy floral notes bit overall very malty. Not much bitterness to it. Which is expected based on the can saying outright that it has hop character without bitterness. Not bad. Not amazing.
