Review – Moonbow Hazy IPA from Smog City

Smog City Brewing does a lot of IPAs and a lot of IPA series as well to keep hop lovers coming back to their Torrance brewery or their other L.A. locations. For 2024, their experimental series is Haze Craze and the # 1 is Moonbow.

Time to haze…

Moonbow pours a darker yellow color with a nice amount of haze to it without being too murky. Light overall tries to be a bit fluffy on the palate but has a bit of strength to it. First note that I get is apricot which is not the usual fruit one finds in a hazy. Getting a bit of green melon as well.

Torrential Experiments

I just posted about Smog City Brewing this month and here they are again with another exciting announcement…

…The Smog Days Series “is a line up of ever changing experimental IPAs that will come out about every 60 days.

Batting lead-off is Torrential Hop Pour, “a 6.9% hazy IPA made with Azacca, Simcoe, and Amarillo hops.” Just mark your calendar for every two months.
