New England Style IPA #002 is brewed with Citra and Mosaic hops. It’s an unfiltered, hazy IPA with notes of mango, peach and grapefruit. It has a medium body and smooth mouthfeel.
“The idea behind Braxton Labs is to push the envelope on new innovative styles and listen to what our customers really want,” said Evan Rouse, Braxton Brewing Company COO. “New England IPAs are extremely popular right now, and our Lead Innovation Brewer, Zac Boehnke, and team truly knocked it out of the park with Braxton Labs’ first New England IPA. I can assure you this version is just as good — if not better. We are excited to get these cans in your hands.”
Braxton Labs’ first New England IPA quickly became its most popular beer selling out in less than two weeks. Given its popularity, the brewing team decided that they wanted to can a beer to get more beer in more customers’ hands.

New England-style IPAs are all the rage these days. Juicy, hazy, and thick, not exactly what one would expect in an IPA. This craze actually started back in 2004 when the Brewmaster of The Alchemist decided not to filter or pasteurize his new IPA, Heady Topper. This left a hazy product with a thick mouthfeel and intense hop flavor without relative bitterness. It took a long time to catch on, like 10+ years, but now the New England IPA is beginning to get the recognition it deserves.
