Juicy or Hazy Imperial or Double India Pale Ale
-Color – Straw to deep gold
-Clarity: Low to very high degree of cloudiness is typical of these beers. Starch, yeast, hop, protein and/or other compounds contribute to a wide range of hazy appearance within this category.
-Perceived Malt Aroma & Flavor: Low to high malt aroma and flavor may be present
-Perceived Hop Aroma & Flavor: High to very high hop aroma and flavor are present, with attributes typical of hops from any origin.
-Perceived Bitterness: Low to medium. Perceived impression of bitterness is soft and well-integrated into overall balance, and may differ significantly from measured or calculated IBU levels.
-Body : Medium to high. Perceived silky or full mouthfeel may contribute to overall flavor profile.
-Additional notes: Grist may include a small amount of oat, wheat or other adjuncts to promote haziness. Descriptors such as "juicy" are often used to describe the taste and aroma hop-derived attributes present in these beers.

Examples from GABF Winners List 2019
Gold Medal: Extra Extra Juicy Bits
WeldWerks Brewing Co. Greeley CO
8.4% ABV
Notes from Brewery: Brewed with more than 12.5 lbs per barrel of Citra, Mosaic, and El Dorado hops, Extra Extra Juicy Bits epitomizes excess. And yet, against all odds, this absurdly hopped Double IPA manages to find balance, thanks to the soft, creamy mouthfeel and smooth finish contributed by the white wheat malt, flaked oats, and flaked wheat added. With notes of tangerine, pineapple, passion fruit, mango, peach, and grapefruit, Extra Extra Juicy Bits is bursting with so much fruit juice character that it makes you question whether or not actual fruit was added. But there is just enough bitterness to keep the beer grounded and remind you that it’s a Double IPA.
Silver Medal: Juice Jockey
Phantom Ales Anaheim CA
8.7% ABV
Notes from Brewery : The return of Juice Jockey is here! This hazy DIPA is loaded with a few favorites, Citra and Strata hops. You get massive aromas of pineapple and tropical fruit accompanied by a rich, soft, & pillowy mouth feel. Come get this delicious 8.7% crusher before its all gone!
