3.88/5  rDev -4.2%
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
