What is the difference between a hazy IPA and a regular IPA?

A hazy IPA has a fruitier flavor profile from using hop varieties that create a tropical fruit flavor and aroma notes. In comparison, English IPAs have stronger malt character and a subtle hop aroma and flavor, while American IPAs have stronger hop intensity.

Compared to regular IPA beer brewing, hazy IPA beers are brewed with an added secondary fermentation process which creates the “hazy” fogginess.

Hazy IPAs also tend to have more hops added post-fermentation, with little to none in the kettle. The result is a less bitter beer with a mid-palate flavor and stronger aroma.

What does Hazy IPA taste like?

Fruity, tropical, sweet, and a creamy full mouthfeel – these are the words associated with how a Hazy IPA would taste.

Hazy IPAs are cloudy in appearance from less filtration before packaging, and hazy IPAs are known to be less bitter than other styles of IPAs – for example, the West Coast IPA.

Other FAQs about non-alcoholic hazy IPA

Why are hazy IPAs less bitter?

Hazy IPAs are less bitter than the traditional IPAs because the hop process happens after the boiling stage. Traditionally, hops are added during the boiling stage to release bitterness.

Since the hops for hazy IPAs are added during the cold fermentation stage (after the boiling stage), the result is a light hop flavor and less bitterness.

Are hazy IPAs just unfiltered?

Unlike other non-alcoholic beer types which tend to be filtered, hazy IPAs are unfiltered, creating a cloudy-looking beer with strong fruit flavor and aroma notes.

Are all hazy IPAs juicy?

Yes, hazy IPAs have a signature juicy flavor and aroma note. The juicy flavor and aroma notes come from using hop varieties that produce a fruit-forward hop flavor. Hazy IPAs are also often brewed with fruits and citrus flavors.
