Hopfly Brewing Company Shatter Hazy Pale Ale

This beer Shatter from Hopfly Brewing Company is the first beer I have seen/had from their new brewery here in Charlotte, North Carolina. This beer is a 5.8% hazy pale ale. This beer is part of Dank Expressions and is double-dry hoped, with Amarillo, Nelson Sauvin, and Mosaic Spectrum hops. This pale ale pours a hazy yellow with a three-finger white head. The head has decent retention. The aroma is juicy melon, hoppy and bitter. The flavor is similar to the smell with juicy bitter melon and hoppy creamy notes. There is a light powdery taste on this beer that you might get from a dry-hopped beer. The mouthfeel is medium. Then this beer finishes with a hoppy semi-dry melon. Then you get a bitter fruity aftertaste last long enough to enjoy it. I enjoyed Shatter Hazy Pale Ale. I would give this beer a high B+. It is refreshing and not so heavy that you can’t drink a few of them. I think it has a nice balance of flavor, drinkability, and mouthfeel. I would recommend trying this. Please be kind, stay safe, and remember to enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
