|IPA - Hazy / NEIPA
The New England India Pale Ale (NEIPA), also known as Hazy IPA or Juicy IPA, is an American IPA with intense fruit flavors and aromas, a soft body, and smooth mouthfeel, and often opaque with substantial haze. Less perceived bitterness than traditional IPAs but always massively hop forward. This emphasis on late hopping, especially dry hopping, with hops with tropical fruit qualities lends the specific ‘juicy’ character for which this style is known. Appearance ranges from hazy, often opaque, straw to yellow and sometimes with an orange hue. The juicy effect refers to an impression of fruit juice or ripe fruit, not actual additive. Haziness comes from the dry hopping regime, starch haze, set pectins, or other techniques but not suspended yeast. Compared to American IPA, the NEIPA has a fuller, softer mouthfeel, a more fruit-forward late hop expression, a more restrained perceived bitterness balance and a hazier appearance. "Session" variants are generally closer-related to the base substyle and should be listed with them.
