Abnormal Hazy Dreams

Brewery: Abnormal Beer Company
Country: USA
ABV: 6.9%
Style: New England / Hazy IPA
Other Notes: Hops – Nugget, Cascade, Mosaic, Simcoe and Citra

Brewer Description: (from can) When you pick up this pint, it transports you into a hazy dream of hoppy heaven. The aggressively hop forward nose lends itself to waves of citrus, resin, and tropical fruits dancing in your head. The medium body from oats and unmalted wheat leads you into a hop heavy finish of fresh squeezed orange juice and hints of grapefruit as if you are walking in a orchard of citrus. The finish is clean with a lingering fruitiness that begs for more consumption. When you wake up, you are thirsty and run to the fridge. Fortunately for you this beer is real, and not just in your dreams. Always drink fresh and follow your dreams, the hazier the better.
