Brew Info:
  • Brewery: Fisher Brewing Company (Salt Lake City, Utah)
  • Website:
  • Brew: United Haze Of America
  • Style: New England-style Hazy American Pale Ale (APA)
  • Serving: 32 ounce "crowler" can
  • ABV: 5.0% 
  • IBUs: 30
  • Ingredients: Strata hops 
  • Pour: The United Haze Of America pours a very murky and hazy, golden-caramel amber hue with a hefty half-finger, off-white, frothy, and firm head with great retention and loads of intricate lacing.
  • Nose: The nose is a wonderfully aromatic blend of floral and citrus hops with more subtle tropical fruit and malty characteristics.  There are big aromas of grapefruit rind and juice, orange zest, tangerine, mango, peach, apricot, crackery grain, barley, wildflowers, and caramel.
  • Taste: The taste of the United Haze Of America follows the nose with lots of tasty citrusy and slightly tropical fruit hop flavor along with floral and malty notes.  There are notes of orange juice, grapefruit juice, tangerine, mango, peach, apricot, black tea, and toffee/caramel.
  • Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and well carbonated, the mouthfeel of the United Haze Of America is very crisp, juicy, and refreshing, yet smooth with a dry, clean finish.

Overall Pairing: The United Haze Of America is a very tasty, juicy, and crushable brew... a perfect companion to the thrashing intensity that is the mighty Evildead!  And what better way to crush 32 ounces of tastiness than with a night of intense headbanging to the kick-ass tracks on "United States Of Anarchy"!  'Nuff said!

Cheers and hails!!
