Hazed & Infused
(Boulder Beer Company)

Hazed & Infused is Boulder Beer Company's flagship brew and their first canned offering. With plans to expand their canning operation in the year to come it certainly will not be the last of their beers to end up in cans. I'm looking forward to seeing what comes rolling off the line in 2011!

From the Boulder Beer Company site:

"This unfiltered dry-hopped ale is "hazed" in its natural state and "infused" with a Crystal and Centennial hop blend, creating a flavorful aromatic brew."

 

Here we go...


Pour - a bright, almost glowing reddish-orange in the glass.  A decent inch or so of stark white foam sits atop this brew.

 

Aroma - wow, LOADS of big fresh hop aroma pummels my olfactory factory. I'm processing a ton of nice greeny, citrusy, piney smells and it sure is nice. I've had this beer in a bottle before and don't remember it exhibiting such an intense hop aroma. Could it be the can? 

 

Taste - a bit lemony and bitter on the tongue, some nice sweet, juicy orange follows. A decent amount of maltiness balances this one out nicely. I can't help but say that the aroma hops really stood out but the intensity in the flavor uis much more subdued. I doubt this is an issue as they sell a ton of this beer because of how it tastes. Big hop aroma and more of a balanced flavor. 

 

Overall - I love the aroma that comes from this beer as soon as it leaves the can. Definitely a very drinkable brew and one that I could session on a nice warm afternoon. This tastes super fresh despite it being a few months old I'd imagine. One more advantage of the almighty aluminum can!

 

Would I buy more of it? - I might now that its being distributed in cans out here in New England. Quite the candidate for a sunny, summer day outside in the backyard!

 

Note - Boulder Beer Company is/was Colorado's first microbrewery. It first took shape in 1979 when two CU professors were granted the country's 43rd brewing license. Hazed & Infused, the brewery's most popular beer, was introduced in 2002.
