3.88/5  rDev -4.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Hazyish dark straw gold. head is bright-white and creamy. Starts off with a solid head, but drops to a small wispy cap and slightly thicker creamy collar in short order. Some splotches and streaks of lacing. Moderate carbonation on the pour.

Smell: Really soft malt base with a touch of powdery American yeast and a mildly sweet pale malt base. A bit of snappy cracker and some mildly bready elements, but it's all very mild. Hops hit big to juicy tropical fruit with a ton of peach, some mango, and a bit of melon and tangerine. Big dry-hop presence. Some minor pithy elements add a small backing bitterness but it's quickly covered over by the super juicy fruit aromas. Just delightful.

Taste: Peach. Lots of peach...or as much as you can have in a relatively mellow beer. Some more pronounced backing bitterness that comes across as pithy. Mellow malt backbone throws some mild bread crust and a bit more cracker. Mild pale malt sweetness adds a nice balance to the hops, but it's still a hop-forward beer. Lingering pine needle bitterness with a big juicy hop element that drops away quickly. A bit of grapefruit and tangerine as well. It's tropical without pushing the sugary sweetness that can accompany juicy tropical hops.

Mouthfeel: Mediumish body with a moderate carbonation. Clean and a touch crisp on the finish.

Overall: I can't get Daisy Cutter, so this will do nicely.

If this actually hits cans (that's the plan last I heard), I'll keep it in my fridge for everyday drinking. A mellow, hoppy pale ale from NE? Yes, it exists and this is it.

Serving type: growler

Poured into a stemmed Night Shift glass from a growler I picked up at my first trip to the brewery yesterday.

A) Hazy light, almost creamy, yellow color. Pours an average size, soft head that dissipates rather fast. Not leaving much lacing so far on the first pour.

S) Light hops and grapefruit along with a faint peach. Not a huge nose, but very nice non the less.

T) Love it. Tons of grapefruit and that peach again. Not bitter at all. This is a super smooth brew.

M) Very nice, but mother overwhelming.

O) I found this quite enjoyable. Nice light drinking beer that I can definitely see myself grabbing again.
