A taste of Boston Beer’s New England IPA

Beer Pick: Samuel Adams New England IPA

As I wrote back at the start of 2018, it looks like hazy IPA is here to stay. And in addition to many local beers in the style, I mentioned Samuel Adams Rebel Juiced IPA, which included the addition of mango juice.

More recently, the Boston Beer Co. released a straight-up version of a New England IPA, and it’s this week’s Beer Pick.

Available on draft and in 4-pack 16-ounce cans


Earlier this year, the brewers at the Boston Beer Co. got into the New England IPA game in a big way with a new beer simply called New England IPA. And lest there be any confusion, the magic words “hazy & juicy” are emblazoned on the front of the 16-ounce tallboy can. 

Brewed with two-row pale malt, white wheat, and golden naked oats, plus a blend of blend Galaxy, Simcoe, Mosaic, Citra, and Cascade hops, it has a touch of sweetness amid the tropical and citrus aromas and flavors. At 6.8 percent and low in bitterness, its definitely an IPA that can offer a bit of refreshment during the dog days of summer. 

Pair with

Boston Beer Co. recommends pairing this NEIPA with clam chowder, Cobb salad, fish and chips, mango-chili chicken or pineapple upside-down cake, which all sounds good to me.
