High notes of zesty citrus balanced really well with a mid-level hazyness giving it body. Yum.

Malty, easy to drink IPA. Fairly well-balanced with resiny hops but the malt is a fraction too heavy.

Uh oh: vegemite up front. Very thin mouthfeel. Some toasted notes behind the vegemite but too little too late.

Lots of up-front, big, bitter hops and not much else going on to balance it.

Sauce Brewing Co by Bubble & Squeak - NEIPA

Chris Z. is drinking a Bubble & Squeak - NEIPA by Sauce Brewing Co

Reminds me of some of my favorite IPAs: musty, late hops but just a little thin in comparison. Probably due to the slightly lower alcohol.

I've been avoiding describing a beer as dank but this is unavoidable. Strong, well-balanced and dank as.
