Clouds are something most of us don’t really need. We much prefer it when the sun shines from a clear sky and you can go outside without first checking the firmament for potential rain clouds. When it comes to beer, things are completely different: cloudiness is not only tolerated, it is even desired from time to time.
A classic with a wonderfully cloudy body is the wheat beer: the extra portion of yeast, which gives the wheat beer its fine flavor, runs through the golden beer like a delicate veil. The craft beer industry has of course jumped on this bandwagon and has made heavy cloud cover modern for other beer styles as well. A good example is the New England India Pale Ale, also known as Hazy IPA. This style of beer sometimes looks like freshly squeezed orange juice in the glass and is anything but crystal clear.
The example from Les Intenables is no exception: the Alsatian interpretation of the American style is filled to the brim with noble hops and presents itself in a densely cloudy golden hue. The Double Dry Hopped NEIPA hides 6.1% alcohol content and a juicy fruitiness in its naturally cloudy depths. An intense hop aroma provides complementary notes of freshly picked green umbels and spicy pine resin.
