Cloud Sourced Hazy Juicy IPA by Two Roads Brewing Co. is a hazy, juicy IPA (New England IPA) and is being evaluated as a Specialty IPA (category 21B in the 2015 BJCP Beer Style Guidelines). New England IPAs are known for their juicy/tropical fruit/citrusy hop-forward character, hazy appearance and lighter-than-typical American IPA bitterness. Cloud Sourced is brewed with Cascade, Columbus, Centennial, Simcoe, Chinook and Citra hops.

Cloud Sourced pours light golden in color with a moderate haze and a large, fluffy white head. The aroma is moderate mango, generic citrus and tropical fruit hops with a hint of malt. The flavor is a mélange of citrusy and tropical fruit flavors including tangerines, mangos and pineapples over a hint of malt. The finish is of moderately light bitterness with lingering citrus and tropical fruit hops.

The hop flavor is well done with a great mix of hop flavors. The bitterness is lighter than a traditional American IPA, which is a hallmark of the New England IPA style. If you like supreme drinkability and a ton of juicy hop flavors, this beer is for you. Hopheads rejoice!
