Hazed & Infused is a dry-hopped pale ale from the Boulder Beer Company, Colorado’s oldest microbrewery. It’s not as characteristically sharp and bitter as a prototypical pale ale. It starts off with scents of orange citrus and yeasty bread. The middle is heavy sweet bread that fades into the finally characteristic piney hop bitterness in the finish, but even then it’s balanced, and not overwhelming. There’s really a nice balance to this beer, starting sweet and finishing bitter. It isn’t necessarily what I’d grab when I’m craving the bitterness of a pale ale, but it has a bit of everything and is a well balanced and well executed ale.
I give it a 3.8 out of 5.
