After my blind taste test I concur 100% with your take @GFisher.  I picked out the EJ right away but was also really impressed with Fresh Kicks.  Though they are both hazy IPAs they are very different.  The FK has a drier finish.  Both very tropical but the EJ's finish is what sets it apart.

100% - With EJ at $20 for 4 16-ozers vs $10 for 6-12 ozers, Fresh Kicks has it's place. Here is one in it's natural habitat yesterday. Hazy IPA for a hazy hike at Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park.

Have not had it but a friend said New Belgium 1985 is a good new hazy IPA. If you're into that kind of thing.

Yes! I was pleasantly surprised by that one. Very tropical, but very balanced.

Hazy IPA / National Park pairing #3. Today's features are Canyonlands National Park and Juicy Johnny's Hazy IPA from Moab Brewery. At 5%, more of a session IPA but quite tasty with a clean finish, while also remaining conducive to a ride later in the day.

'The Hazy IPA' - 6.5% - very clean finish, not very fruity. Not sure if this can be found back in the ATX, but I'd hit it again.

Bountiful trip to the corner store. So glad they came back with the Atomic Pumpkin!

Yeah, it's that time of year for old guys like me to bitch about things that should not be in beer.

No fruit, no flavors. Hops, grain and water. There is a lot that you can do with those three. I hear pumpkin beer pairs well with pineapple on a pizza....

Now all you need is half a milk jug, a cooler full of water, a small socket, and some used chewing gum and you're in business.
