    Hey man, don't shoot the messenger!

    I wholeheartedly agree with you, btw.

    Regardless of its opacity, it was damn tasty.

    Reminds me of Gilman Street Brewing who made a NE haze that was clear. When I asked them about it, they said it was their West-meets-East interpretation. It, too, was hella tasty despite what I consider to be mislabeling.
    (FWIW, check out the GSB website and look at the pix of their hazes:

    Kabru West Coast IPA
    Solid Ground Brewing, Diamond Springs, CA
    ABV: 7.5%
    Hops: Simcoe, Amarillo, El Dorado

    Yes, another murky "west coast" IPA. I concur that it's cloudiness excludes it from being a true WC IPA, but unlike the majority of hazes, it's not terribly fruity or yeasty. It has a kind of dried apricot aroma and initial palate hit, but then bleeds into more traditional WC IPA bitterness at the finish.
    I would call this a hybrid and the brewery should, too. Or, at the very least, call is an "unfiltered" IPA...
    Regardless, it's tasty.

    Hazy Leafy Greens
    Revision Brewing CO., Sparks, NV
    ABV: 7.25%
    Hops:
    IBU: 55


    Apparently Revision releases it's "Leafy Greens" IPA every 4/20. How I have missed this all these years is not only strange, but a travesty (Revision was founded in 2015 and this is the first time I am enjoying "Leafy Greens").
    At any rate, this year they decided to skip making their more traditional "clear" West Coast-styled version and went with a hazy, in honor of how f$%ke-up 2020 was due to COVID.
    Revision has built its rep on their hazes and I have to be honest quite a lot of them taste pretty similar, to me at least. But this jammy is nice and crisp with that fruity hazy quality and a decent slam of hoppy bitterness, raising it above the standard hazy. Highly recommended.
    If you find yourself in Reno, also check their "Disco Ninja", "Moon Wolf", and "Citra Slam" IPAs.

    IPAs for beginners:

    https://vinepair.com/articles/wa-14-best-ipas/

    I have only had 3 on the list (Pliny and both the SN entries) and quite honestly, I wouldn't recommend them to somebody just getting into IPAs...

    that's a list of IPA's that you could probably find in an airport in the CONUS, I know all my favorite IPA's are brewed in Brooklyn

    Good one from last week. Long swim supposedly refers to not having a good day on the river. Had a pretty good day on the bike, though

    ^Kern River is solid.
    The three IPAs I have had from them have been legit.
