Sounds like my homebrew before I learned water chemistry and became more disciplined with my IPA technique.


The haziness is all about the water chemistry and technique. All they are (or should be if done correctly anyway) is have a high Chloride to Sulphate ratio, and dryhopping during active fermentation.

I love them. Great juicy flavor and very easy drinking.


Where I come from that's called brewing with tap water. If you like to brew that style move to Kansas City. No water chemistry needed and you'll brew one of those IPA's.

Oh yeah, back on topic. I like kittens for sandpaper tongue.
