Brew Review – Dale Hazy by Prision Pals

It’s not pronounced Dale like the Disney chipmunk.

It’s DAH-ley. Two syllables.

Cuban slang for go ahead, a sort of let’s go that has been made almost a catchphrase by Miami rapper Pitbull.

And it sort of works when discussing a hazy IPA in the state of Florida.

That style has become almost a requirement since I started the blog 8+ years ago, growing from a bizarre offshoot of the standard IPA to a style that, in many ways, has eclipsed it’s origin.

It’s easy to see why, and Dale Hazy (Hazy IPA, 7% ABV) by Prision Pals in Doral is a great example.

With a hazy IPA, Dale Hazy being an excellent example, the beer is opaque and slightly milky, almost like a very thick & chunky orange juice. The aroma continues that experience, with solid notes of citrus that lean heavily on orange and grapefruit.

The flavor is delicious and fruity, with a moderate citrus and floral hop bitterness to it. This is less the excessive dankness of a traditional IPA, and more of the sweet fruity bitterness of a ruby red grapefruit.

The style has its fans, as it should, and the legions that loved it will only grow from here. It will probably be around for a very, very long time as well.

But when the beer’s that good, go ahead.
