Brewdog Hazy Jane

On the second day of Christmas, Brewdog put this in a can for me.


From the website:

New England detuned. This full-tilt fruit machine of an IPA packs all the flavour but less of the alcohol. Notes of pineapple, mango, stone-fruit, and a hint of tangerine to mix it up. Brewed with oats and wheat and left unfiltered for a smooth juicy hit.


I've never tried this one before, but I'm apprehensive because it's Brewdog. I'm expecting some kind of fruity taste from the description, maybe a cloudy wheat beer-like ale?


It smells of pineapple. It looks a bit cloudy, a golden colour with no head and quite large bubbles on the side of the glass.

When I hold it up to the light I see lots of bubbles rising rapidly, and it makes me wonder if I am about to drink something like alcoholic Lilt.

It tastes nothing like Lilt. There isn't much of a fruity taste either, just quite bitter, sweet and slightly tangy. The aftertaste is a bit more like pineapple and citrus, but it's not unpleasant.

I wouldn't go as far as saying I like it, but it's not bad at all. The fruity taste built up as I drank my way through the beer, though it didn't get too overwhelming.


3/5 : An interesting drink, might make a refreshing change now and then but not something I would drink regularly.
