Description 

For years, rumors have circled that deep in the woods on Mount St. Helens lives the fabled Batsquatch. While there are many tales of Batsquatch, they are all a bit hazy on the details, which makes the truth such a juicy mystery. So what better way to honor the elusive legend than with a hazy IPA? Perfect for camping and potentially making a new friend. This juicy, cloudy IPA features intense tropical flavors and aromas.

Batsquatch Hazy IPA by Rogue Ales & Spirits was judged as a Specialty IPA (BJCP Style Category 21B). If you are looking for a well-made, hazy NEIPA that does not burn a hole in your stomach, this beer is for you. Tropical fruit aromas, melon and stone fruit are not as up front as I would like but they get support from medium-low, clean, neutral malt aromas and a trace of onion. It pours hazy gold under a white 2” rocky cap with good retention. The flavor is juicy and fruity with papaya, melon, traces of stone fruit and a mild, but very welcome bitterness. Bready, grainy slightly sweet malt flavors support the hops and lead to a mellow, lingering aftertaste. The beer stands out for its balance between the hop flavors, the hop bitterness and the malt and its drinkability. You can drink this all evening.
