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 Colorados 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.

Bottle Pours copper/brownish...nice tan head, quite bubbly. Smells of pine and citrus hops, not as powerfully as I expected. A thin beer quick to a bitter finish. Not a lot going on in the flavor, its short with hop resin and moves quickly on to a piney bitter finish. No malt detected. Just shy of being watery. Theres been a lot of hoopla about this beer locally, with people I know proclaiming it great. The best thing about it is the hop-cone tasting belches the bubbles give you. At least it is introducing hops into this area, Ill give it an extra point for that aspect, its a gateway beer. Nothing great, I prefer Sierra Nevada PA.

On tap at the gate. Poured orange/amber coloring, with an aroma of hops. Taste had a grapefruittaste of hops, minimal burn on the mouthfeel and some citrus/ fruitiness to it.

OldGrowth (3330) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - MAY 22, 2004
Bottle: Good nose, honey almond. Hazy reddish orange, small head. Sweet and sour flavor, carmel & orange come to mind. Thinner bodied, though kind of sticky. Tasty, doesnt wow me though.

PullMeABeer (203) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 21, 2004
Bottle. Pours a wonderful clear amber/brown, less head retention than expected. Great aroma of dark/caramel malt, and plentiful hops, aroma is a high point! Flavor is rich and sweet, but not overbearing, good woody citrus hop flavor, but no hop bite, which was quite surprising to me. With every drink I was expected strong hop bite. Besides that slight let down the beer was very good. Mouth feel is medium, and there is a good amount of richness in this. Very good, would buy again.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - MAY 16, 2004
Love that aroma, it shouts hops! The body on this brew is a nice amber color with head that head that usually costs extra to get so much on the street. Palate is suprisingly smooth for the high hoped aroma. Not much bite on this but a good smooth feel all around.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAY 8, 2004
Clear light amber color with a thick white head. Wonderful floral hop aroma. Dry, sweet, malty and bitterly hopped and everything I love. How is this not an IPA? Sweet and sticky makes me want to lick the glass.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - MAY 5, 2004
Pours a cloudy orange with a creamy cream colored head. Very nice aroma of hops, oranges, and pineapples. Fruity flavor dominated by pineapple and hops. A tad bit overcarbonated- burns my tongue. I little lacking in the finish but still very tasty.

Really nice. Aroma of hops smells lovely. Slightly less hoppy than an IPA, but packs a nice hop punch.

This ale should have been labeled an IPA. It is a perfect example of what dryhopping should do to an ale. Very similar to Summit Brewery's IPA. The bouquet of this beer lingers for just a little while longer. My choice of summer ales... and winter for that matter.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2005 Whoa! this beer has some bite! Taste resembles Harpoon IPA, but overdone. This beer was not drinkable for me. It had far too much citrus flavor. No thanks! Rerate. Aroma is almost smokey. Taste is lemon and slight smoke. Lemon hoppy aftertaste. Much better the second time around.
