look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pours a lightly hazy orange color. Thick but weak sudsy head dissipates steadily leaving no residual head whatsoever. Not exactly an enticing beer.

Aroma is predominantly citrusy with a strong mango presence. Light notes of spicy cinnamon peep through, but you have to be looking for them to catch them. Light grassy hops notes come through.

Taste follows the nose with strong citrusy notes and a prominent mango presence. Honestly the mango here is really prominent in a mango juice way. There isn't a ton of hoppy bitterness in this, but the cinnamon provides a bit of hot spice on the back end that honestly pretty nice - it works well. A touch of sweetness is noted in this one.

Feel is light, smooth, full bodied. Moderate, gentle carbonation.

Admittedly this is an odd couple with the mango and the cinnamon, but for me, it actually worked pretty well and was enjoyable to drink a couple of. Not sure its one I'd drink more than one or two of, but well worth trying.

Expected this to be way over the top based on description but ended up being more restrained and subtle. Extremely light flavored beer with hints of dried mango and a little bite of cinnamon. No one flavor overpowers. Surprisingly light body, doesn’t taste like an IPA at all, not even an NEIPA. Still, rather enjoyable and refreshing. Goes down easy.

Better than expected since most of Goose Islands beers seem to be very tame versions of the style they represent, Nice hazy golden color with minimal head. Aroma of hops and fruit. Taste is surprisingly mild for a 6.9% IPA, Mild hops with a sweet mango punch and a sweet spiciness. Very easy drinking. I really enjoy this new Hazy craze, Not the best of the bunch but tasty none the less,

This is the lowest I’ve ever rated a Goose Island product. They are experts, but this recipe is barely in the category, which would be OK if the variation was a plus. But this variation is a minus.

A N.E. IPA is not a shandy. It’s not half brew, half juice. And if the juice you pick is nearly grapefruit, you’re gonna have something that tastes like there’s bret in it Maybe it should be billed as a shandy-sour. But it ain’t a N.E. IPA!

"Best by 5/5/20"; drank 3/7/20 @ the Yarchives.

Cloudy dull orange appearance.

A violent pour yielded a big white head; frothy lace.

Cream, cinnamon & mild mango notes in the nose.

Creamy, medium mouthfeel.

Cinnamon, cream & mild mango flavors; not really an IPA, and not my bag, but drinkable.

12oz can. Poured out a cloudy, golden orange color with a small, off-white head of foam. It smelled of cinnamon, tropical fruits and caramel. Sweet caramel taste with citrus, pineapple and cinnamon.

Very weird but not bad. Mango upfront as well as in the finish but with a touch of cinnamon at the end.

Poured from a can into a tulip.

Pours light hazy orange gold with moderate head and decent lacing.

The aromas are citrus forward, with an emphasis on orange, but grassy and earthy hops are present as well. A touch of the advertised cinnamon.

The cinnamon flavor is more pronounced on the palate. A good mix of caramel malt and bitter citrus on the tip of the tongue gives way to shades of the spice and grain.

The brew has a nice solid medium feel.

The story behind the brew is awesome, and it's an interesting beer. Just not quite my thing.

From the 12 fl. oz. can with best by date of 26 Mar 2020. Sampled on Feb 8, 2020.

Not as hazy as NEIPA's usually are. There is a bit of a foggy yellow pour and a quick lasting head. But not opaque like the NEIPA's I get here in New England.

The aroma is rather dull with some citrus and some tropical fruit and some bread but everything is just dull. It does not entice me to drink it.

Light to medium body.

The taste is a slight step up from the aroma with more of a fruity character but overall it just does not go anyplace for me. Pretty average then.

12 oz can poured into a shaker pint.

Appearance
Hazy blonde. Lively carbonation. Short white head.

Nose
Mango, cinnamon, cookie dough, and citrus. Fairly light aroma.

Taste
Cinnamon, ginger snaps, and light mango juice. Light bready and citrus character. Most of the flavor is lost beneath the spices.

Mouthfeel
Light bodied, crisp, effervescent, and off-dry.

Overall
The cinnamon spice is upfront and blends well with the IPA base. Reminiscent of a holiday spiced beer.
