I've heard a lot of buzz about the New England IPA lately. After reading this article, I've gathered that it features fruitiness, cloudiness, and somewhat creamy medium bitterness. The specific aromatics and tastes seem to be a bit at-large. Haziness also seems to be a consistent characteristic.
After having done a few West Coast IPAs (largely consisting of Cascade, Simcoe, and Centennial pellets), I haven't been able to nail down exactly which hops, yeasts, or other ingredients seem to be "successful" for this style. A few other pieces such as these tips and this recipe seem to be good starting places, but I'm still not entirely sold.
As Nate Reynolds of GotBeer.com mentions here, the BJCP (Beer Judge Certification Program) has not yet recognized this as a full-fledged "style", so there may be some degree of educated opinion rather than fact. I hope to gain some experienced insight on the New England IPA, nevertheless.
What, exactly, sets the New England IPA apart from a "traditional" IPA or even a West Coast IPA?
Furthermore, has anyone had repeated success with this style, and would be able to share your tips/recipes?
