Northeast IPAs are a recent, but exciting, addition to the craft beer landscape. Pioneered by breweries in…you guessed it…the northeast US, they prioritize juicy hop flavor and aroma over bitterness, are intentionally hazy, and have a soft, creamy mouthfeel. They often remind me of fruit juice, and are quickly becoming by favorite subgenre of hoppy beers.
This is my take on the style, and it contains late additions of Citra, Mosaic, and Simcoe hops, as well as two rounds of dry hopping (the first being during active fermentation). This gives it tons of tropical fruit and citrus character without being aggressively bitter. I hope you enjoy the beer as much as I do!
