Description 

Don’t Haze Me Bro is a juicy IPA with a pillowy mouthfeel. This tropical fruit, berry, Pinot Gris and citrus juice bomb has low, yet balanced bitterness that is both easy to drink and still packs 50,000 volts of fun. With a 4 pounds per barrel dry hop of Azaca, Zappa and Strata this hop bomb will bring all the great flavors and aromas of a juicy IPA without being too bitter.

Don’t Haze Me Bro by Pontoon Brewing is an IPA (BJCP category 21A), but as the name insinuates, it crosses over into Specialty IPA subcategory (21B) as a hazy New England-style IPA. 

It pours a murky, but not entirely opaque, deep yellow color with orange tones and a mousy off-white head that clings to the glass. The aroma is hop-forward with lots of citrus (tangerine, grapefruit) and tropical (pineapple, passion fruit) notes as well as a bit of herbal cattiness and pine. Underneath the moderately high hops is a light grainy malt, some fresh dough and a bit of honey with mild fruity esters (apricot, peach). The flavor is also big on the hops, fruit forward (grapefruit, tangerine, mango), some herbal grassiness and moderate bitterness. It’s almost a cross between the hazy New England style and a traditional IPA, with a normal bitterness and a bit of old school dank/pine to go along with the mangoes and cream.
