Brew Info:

  • Brewery: Revision Brewing Company (Sparks, Nevada)
  • Website:  
  • Brew: Hazy Leafy Greens
  • Style: New England-style Hazy India Pale Ale (NEIPA)
  • Serving: 16 ounce can
  • ABV: 7.25%
  • IBUs: 55 
  • Ingredients: CTZ® hops
  • Pour: The Hazy Leafy Greens pours a very hazy, very bright golden-orange hue with a frothy, bright white, 1+ finger head with great retention and lots of sudsy, sticky lacing.
  • Nose: The nose is earthy, dank, citrusy, grassy, and floral.  There are aromas of orange juice, tangerine, peach, apricot, pineapple, mango, dank cannabis, light pine resin, wild flowers, bitter herbs, biscuit, and soft caramel/toffee.
  • Taste: Hop-forward, the taste of the Hazy Leafy Greens is citrusy, grassy, fruity, and malty.  There are notes of orange juice, tangerine, peach, pink grapefruit juice, mango, pineapple, guava, melon, grassy hops, pine, sweet caramel, biscuity malt, peppery spice, and an ever so slight hint of booze.  
  • Mouthfeel: Medium to full-bodied with moderate carbonation, the mouthfeel is very crisp and very juicy, yet smooth with a dry, slightly peppery finish.

Overall pairing: The Revision Hazy Leafy Greens is a dank, complex, and juicy brew with lots of citrus and earthy flavor, which makes it a great beer to throw back to the complex intensity and heaviness of the riffs, vocals, and thunderous rhythm section of  Baroness!  'Nuff said! 

Cheers and hails!
