Name: Moksa’s Secret Stuff
Brewers: WeldWerks Brewing Co., Moksa Brewing Co. (United States)
Style: Hazy IPA
Review Year: 2022
WeldWerks Brewing Co. (Colorado) teamed up Moksa Brewing Co. (California) for Moksa’s Secret Stuff, a “Double IPA” brewed with something extra special from Moksa.
This beer is being evaluated as a Hazy IPA (21C) in the context of the 2021 Beer Style Guidelines of the Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP). The most current version can be found on the BJCP website.
Hazy pale straw; white head with fair retention. On the nose, moderately high juicy ripe mango, peach, and citrus peels were joined by hints of grassy, dank, and garlic-like aromas. Medium-full-bodied;moderately low carbonation. For the flavor profile, think of moderately strong juicy mangoes (without the sweetness) but with a pinch of crushed garlic. Some grapefruit and cantaloupe impressions were also noted at medium-low levels; supportive bready malt backbone. Moderate bitterness; low sweetness. Mango peel, garlic, and resin flavors lingered.
Juicy fruity mangoes meet garlicky dankess with Moksa’s Secret Stuff. Delicious and extremely crushable, this WeldWerks-Moksa collaboration is easily one of the memorable hazy beers we have tried this year. We were intrigued by how this beer remained juicy despite having low sweetness. Excellent.
