What's on the Website: "Our version of a New England-style IPA featuring a 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. The end result is a beer reminiscent of citrus juice with extra pulp, thus the name Juicy Bits." Read more here!

Appearance (5%): Poured hazy light orange into a pint glass. Unfiltered; some sediment at the bottom of the can. White head, some lacing. 4.5/5

Smell (25%): Extremely juicy citrus with trace oaty malt background. 4.75/5

Taste (40%): Follows the nose; more malt to start, but lots of tropical citrus swoops in afterward. Aftertaste is virtually all citrus tangerine. Very refreshing. A slight delayed flavor hit before the citrus comes at you. 4.5/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied; some carbonation. Very juicy with some dry tongue. 4.25/5

Overall (20%): An outstanding Double IPA. A heck of a pick for my initiation to WeldWerks Brewing. Huge fan of the juicy citrus, very easy drinking and refreshing. Really hits that sweet spot for drinkability and flavor. Price is on par (if not slightly cheaper) with other high-quality NE-Style IPAs. 4.5/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.563/5
