Poured into a Nordic Sixpoint glass not sure when it was canned. Pours a hazy yellow with a 1 inch finger of sticky white head that that leaves thick streaks of lace behind.

Smell is guava, pineapple, tangerine, grapefruit rind, and a hint of blueberry.

Taste follows guava, tangerine, pineapple upfront with mild grapefruit and blueberry in the balanced juicy finish.

Mouthfeel is a big medium, plenty of life but soft, a touch sticky, and at 7.5% goes down easy enough, but loaded with flavor.

Overall this is a nice NEIPA that hits most of the right spots. Well done.

Just your typical excellent hazy ipa. Juicy and delicious but lacking any bite. I like an ipa that you can feel the sting of hops. I know the neipa style of hazy unfiltered ipas leaves that out so in all fairness this is a good example. It’s on par with wrench and sloop juice

On the Tree House scale of New England IPA's (near perfect New England IPA's) this was not terrible or thrilling. The taste was unoffensive but dull and forgettable. Too many beers to drink and I only drink one a night, I will remember this negatively, I will remember to not have again.

Very hazy and light in color for an IPA. Smells on the malty and alcoholy side. Not a fan really.

Simply a fantastic IPA. Huge aromas of citrus and slightly dank tropical fruit with a touch of bitterness. Clean, crisp malt bill. Soft mouthfeel. Easily my favorite Captain Lawrence IPA to date.

Smooth taste in a hazy IPA. Pretty good, but nothing distinctive.

On tap:
The yellow body allows a bit of light through, but appears more hazy without the closer inspection. Large bubbles look soapy and stock to the edge where they provide a few streams of lace.

Nose is leaning citrus and slightly fruity with a hint of what I’ll call a coconut/ripe melon/papaya component that I attribute in part to the Montueka.

Taste starts with the same notes as the nose, but with a malt infusion that lightens the impact a tad. The middle brings the grassy/sweet herbal/coconut flavor I know I get from Montueka. A tangerine/lemon citrus strain come through in the end, where a light grassy bitterness closes things.

No quite medium body, its feel fits with its look. A nice, fairly balanced IPA that has two hops I like, and I get the flavor of each.

Citrusy, just a hint of bitterness, very drinkable.
