Probably their best beer. Not particularly original in its style, but quite good for a NEIPA.

16 ounce can into tulip glass; no can dating, but is a recent release. Pours opaquely hazy medium golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, wheat, white bread dough, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, wheat, white bread dough, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Mild pine, zesty, herbal, grassy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, wheat, white bread dough, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with an awesome malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready, and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is great. Minimal warming alcohol for 7.8%. Overall this is an awesome NE IPA! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink for hte ABV, with the mildly bitter/drying finish. Amarillo, Cascade, Citra and Mosaic hops. Extremely juicy and lightly dank hop complexity, with balanced bready malts. Great soft mouthfeel as expected for the style, not too bitter/drying. A really enjoyable offering, and spot on style example. Loved the hop profile.

Pretty solid NEIPA.

Described as a
double dry hopped/
double wheat + oat
India pale ale
7.8% abv

Looks like another popular/local favorite in the style.

Murky OJ with a decent lingering
white head. Sticky lacing.
Smells of dank fruit juiciness. Tangerines, peaches, tropic fruit, maybe some passion fruit?
A little boozy but not over done.
Super juicy with full flavors of citrus and tangy fruits. With a hop dankness mouthful follow up. After taste is juicy and wet. Starts off bitter then finishes wet and juicy.

Very well done! Fantastic IPA guys
