Roll-a-Style 9 ... Hazy IPA

Well ... I thought I was going to have a group brew day coming up, and I have a bunch of IPA hops in my freezer.

I pretended to roll the Online 20 sided die and pretended that I rolled ...

9 Corresponds to 21C. Hazy IPA.

Hazy IPA is

An American IPA with intense fruit flavors and aromas, a soft body, smooth mouthfeel, and often opaque with substantial haze. Less perceived bitterness than traditional IPAs but always massively hop-forward.

I have sort of complicated feelings about Hazy IPA's. I like them, but think that if they are overly cloudy, they are really ugly looking. Generally, I prefer clear IPA's.

However, usually I like the flavor of Hazy IPA's.

Regardless, Hazy IPA was on the list, and I decided to go with this style next. 

To hopefully help maintain haziness, I thought a short boil would help, so I basically designed the recipe with a Short and Shoddy process.

Here is that recipe:
