The Popularity of Hazy IPA
Hazy IPAs have become increasingly popular due to their unique flavor and mouthfeel. Haze is created when yeast and proteins form suspended particles in the beer, creating a much thicker body than traditional IPAs. This gives Hazy IPAs a smooth, creamy texture that many find more enjoyable than their clear counterparts. In addition to the thick body, Hazy IPAs also have a reduced perceived bitterness and enhanced hop aroma and flavor. These characteristics make them particularly desirable for those who enjoy intense hoppy flavors with a smooth finish.
