Lil’ Juicy by Two Roads Brewing Co. is a 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.  Lil’ Juicy is double dry hopped and is hopped with Galaxy, Citra, and Azacca hops.

Lil’ Juicy pours golden in color with the requisite haze and a small, clingy white head.  The aroma is prominent tangerine with a lighter resiny character. The flavor continues the dominant tangerine hops with hints of mango with just a hint of malt flavor. The beer finishes moderately bitter and dry with a lingering tangerine hop flavor.

This is a very pleasant, quaffable hazy IPA with the hops providing primarily tangerine flavors. A little more malt to balance the hop profile would be welcomed. Hop heads enjoy!
