Re: Hazy IPAs/New England IPAs

not sure either. John Kimmich is commonly referred to as the originator of the hazy NE styled IPA/DIPA with the introduction of The Alchemists' Heady Topper way back in 2003, long before Trillium or Treehouse started brewing commercially. Cheers, Bud Didn’t he think it was a flaw at the time though...

Re: Hazy IPAs/New England IPAs

Headed to Minneapolis in August and am trying to scout out some haze. Is Blackstack where it’s at? Without a doubt - I received a can of their 2 On back in January and I thought for a big TIPA it was really well constructed and very tasty, I would love to taste more of their portfolio. Cheers, Bud

Re: Hazy IPAs/New England IPAs

Edson, I think the consensus would be that Heady Topper is the 'OG' Hazy IPA and 10-12 years ago they were the only game in town. Little by little that has changed. I wouldn't argue that the west coast stuff is better as any Monkish I've had has been amazing. I'm not really into cross country tradi...
