I love label approvals. I assume you’ve figured that out if you regularly browse this website, as you’ll see them pop up from time to time followed by a post full of exclamation points. This one fits right into that really excited category, because I think that Taft’s is one of the most underrated breweries here in town right now. Their quality has been on point, and they’re poised to kick the packaging into another gear and pump out some really fun stuff like this more frequently any day now.
You might have tried this already, if you’ve been to the taproom in the last few months. But the Nebulosity that you probably tried was Taft’s stab at an India Pale Lager, which while fun… is not what this beer is. They came up with a new recipe that carries on the name and fulfills exactly what you want in your hazy, hoppy cans.
This 7% India Pale Ale is Double Dry-Hopped with Mosaic, El Dorado and Simcoe for a fruity blast of hoppy goodness. I can give you some better tasting notes once I get my hands on it!
To fulfill the beers true destiny, it is only right for a NE IPA or (Hazy IPA was they’re calling this) to make it’s way into packaging, and if all things happen the way the signs are pointing, we should be seeing this one in 12oz cans at some point.
As with all label approvals, you know the drill. This is no guarantee of when or if we’ll see this in packaging – but I will keep my ear to the ground and let you know as soon as I hear anything solid!
