PhillyBite BeerPhiladelphia, PA - Whether you’re a home brewer or just a beer fan, hazy (cloudy) beers are all the rage these days. The coloring originates in the New England IPA, a type of IPA that is usually yellow or orange in coloring, hazy. Breweries have implemented this brewing process in the brewing of other types of beer, though they are most often other varieties of IPA, characterized by the intense flavor of hops. They usually are medium in color, lower in alcohol content (6-8%), and very bitter due to the hops.
