2. The Substance

Bissel Brothers The Substance New England IPA

Bissel Brothers Brewing Co. (Portland, ME)

The Substance flirts with the new world IPA style in a way that intrigues and compels, adding complexity and not detracting from the beer. It does have notes of tropical citrus, but it is still first and foremost “dank” with a perceived bitterness that contributes to an overall balanced experience.

3. Juicy Bits

WeldWerks Brewing Juicy Bits recipe

WeldWerks Brewing Co. (Greeley, CO)

Amahl Turczyn created this Juicy Bits interpretation that lives up to the real-deal! Expect huge citrus and tropical fruit character from the Mosaic, Citra, and El Dorado hops, a softer, fluffier mouthfeel from the lower attenuation, and the characteristic New England hop haze.

4. Never Sleep


Good Word Brewing (Duluth, GA)

This is one of Good Word Brewing’s most popular beers, described as “juicy” without being overly sweet thanks to Vic Secret and Citra hops. Pilsner malt dominates alongside English pale malt and oats for a little more body and mouthfeel.

5. Battlecow Galacticose


Providence Brewing Co. (Providence, RI)

This deceptively strong beer is brewed with 2-Row pale malt, Carafoam, rolled oats, milk sugar, and intensely double dry-hopped with Citra and Mosaic giving it a decidedly dank aroma. Bursting with mango, orange and pineapple flavors, this is a juicy milkshake New England IPA that’ll have you begging for another sip.

6. New England IPA


Red Door Brewing Co. (Albuquerque, NM)

True to New England style, this IPA has an intense tropical fruit and floral nose thanks to a generous dosing of mosaic, citra, and el dorado hops. the hazy appearance comes from the use of wheat and oats in the mash.
