Would not have known it was supposed to be hazy if it wasn't written on the can. Straw colored almost clear, with a thin pure white head which dissipates quickly. No great taste one way or the other and a dull bitter short aftertaste. Would not buy again and would not recommend.

19.2 FL. OZ. can
Served in an oversized, stemless wine glass

This beer pours an orangish hue of yellow. It is hazy and topped with a couple inches of tan head that coats the glass with lacing.

Tropical fruit aroma with hints of melon

Tropical fruit flavor with hints of melon

Medium bodied with a pillowy mouthfeel

Fantastic for a gas station stove pipe in my rural area.

From a tap at Crave. Pours gold and has a light aroma of sweetness and hops. This IPA is big on rind-flavored tartness with a mellow sweetness of peaches and navel orange. A nice change of pace, and a solid hazy IPA.

Another Hazy IPA... Ok: Mouth feel, carbonation and aftertaste are in the mid range of all the new Hazies. Taste is little bit tart, which i like. Solid brew.

Pours a hazy apricot gold with a thick white cap that leaves generous lacing. Aroma is oranges, melon and peaches. Flavor follows the nose, a bit sweet in front with a hint of bitterness in the finish. Feel is light bodied and adequately carbonated. Overall, another drinkable NEIPA without being special.

I got a steroid can of this beer from a gas station in Oshkosh, Wisconsin whilst there for the WIAC Women's D3 Gymnastics Conference finals. It poured a hazy golden with white head that left a spotty lace. The scent had bitter citrus notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with semi sweet malt base and bitter tangerine citrus fruit presence. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it is a good beer.

12oz can from a variety pk eb date 30April23 into a nonic pint glass.
L: Pours straw light bright lemon pulp yellow w a thin soapy white head, fine carbo bubbles, random skeletal lacing w light sheeting.
S: Peachy caramelized malts, mixed ripe fruits, lemon bread, some alcohol w warming.
T: Bright & lightly fruited, citrus, a hint of bread, lemon zest, a gently bitter finish, light alcohol w warming. Shy flavors.
F: Soft, slick med-light bodied w a fast and fairly drying finish that is gently creamy. Oddly flat vs visible carbo bubbles.
O: A clean tasting & fairly dry finishing gently hazed IPA that is smooth & EZ drinking. Sort of like lemonade that is smooth. It is good in its style. I will try another can poured into a nucleated glass.

Total Wine gave me a best by November can.. not a great way to start. Pours a very pale hazy golden color. Tastes okay but flavor falls flat due to it being expired. Will have to try again one of these days and ensure a not expired can.

19.2oz stovepipe can. Stamped date on can bottom is '17APR23', best by date.
Cloudy, pale gold colored body. Two fingers of pure white head, which sticks around as a thick cap. Leaves behind a few strings of lacing.
Aroma of orange, tangerine, and a little peach.
Taste is peach, guava, mango, citrus, and white grape. Somewhat sweet but tangy more than bitter. Rather flat aftertaste.
Fuller than medium mouth feel. Softer texture. Slight tongue numbing. Very good carbonation.
Haven't had a Goose Island IPA for quite some time. This is an IPA with some haze and with more stone fruit flavors than typical citrus. Would not include this in the NEIPA style, because of appearance and not "fruity" enough. Pleasant to drink, and well brewed.

A decent hazy...a little over carbonated with thin mouth feel but overall a nice fruity beer just not top tier like a Bells.

Draft in pint glass. Pours a somewhat hazy deep yellow with a decent off-white head. Nice lacing. Initial impression is orange, pineapple, grapefruit, and grassiness. Fairly bitter. Mouthfeel is clean but a little thin for a NEIPA. Finish fades to a citrus-y bitterness. Overall, I wouldn't call this a NEIPA but it's OK as an AIPA.
