One of the things you’ll noticed about any trendy hazy beer producer is that their Hazy IPA is always double-dry hopped and always right around 8.0% alcohol. Seems to be a sweet spot for marketability and they’re usually quite delicious as well. That’s what I’m going for here. Definitely not rocket science to create a wonderful hazy beer. The rub is, most of them fail because they’re unwilling to spend the money to do it right AND afraid that it won’t sell at the necessary price-point. It’s tough to sell 6 dollar cans or 21 dollar 4-packs. But no worries at the homebrew level. Sure it’s a more expensive beer to make than the average but it’s worth it!
