We had a beer of the same name back in the November 2017 beer club packs. It was just after Kees first moved into cans, but his entire range is now filled into these little mini kegs.
And although the can is completely different in colour and appearance, he’s chosen to recycle the name of that original beer.
As before, the Hazy Sunrise is a hazy IPA – and I’m still resisting a little in using the ‘NEIPA’ tag. This iteration features Citra, Mosaic and Loral hops giving the beer a lovely bouquet filled with tropical fruits notes.
There is an early dose of sweetness to this beer which is really tropical with mango, papaya, mandarin and pine. The mouthfeel is quite soft, with only a very gentle bitterness coming through at the end.
Its really juicy, and doesn’t really hint at the 7.1% ABV. Not quite a NEIPA in the true sense, and the flavours might be a little muted from the very soft mouthfeel, but an enjoyable offering for this version.
