Tall can, released at the brewery about a week ago

Pours out in the expected hazy NEIPA kinda style, wispy off white cap, leaving low sheeting and fine scattered lacing. Nice looking brew

Sniff reveals candied pineapple

On the palate it more soft and sweet pineapple notes, along with oranges and a hint of tropical mango. Delicious

Carbonation is on the lower side of just about right

Overall, this is a high quality and on point take on the oh so hot style...sweet, tropical, complex and all together highly enjoyable...I was told that some of this run will make it into local distribution....go get some if you see it at your local spot or if you can get over to the brewery

Opaque medium orange-gold body under a tall white head... Getting lotsa dank tropical orange, mango, and papaya right up front, woven into a sticky kinda shellac... Chewy bitterness coats the tongue with a leathered fruit sweetness... Soft and fluffy feel leaves a dull coating behind... Very nice, but perhaps not my favorite Powder Dreams release, though its fair to say that sometimes an orange character can be something of a detractor for me... 3/27/18 canning...

A: The beer is hazy yellow in color and has some hues of amber. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down and left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface, a narrow collar around the edge, and some lacing down teh sides of the glass.
S: Faint aromas of passionfruit, pineapples and citrusy hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has a bit stronger flavors of citrusy and tropical fruit hops. There is only a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA is all about the flavor of the hops—there is hardly any associated bitterness at all.

Serving type: can

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours a hazy medium golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and moderate bight medium yellow + honey colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense sudsy foamy white head that reduces to a small to medium sized patch of medium thick film surrounded by a large patch of very thin film covering the majority of the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Slightly heavier than moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Slightly stronger than moderate aromas of juicy tropical/pineapple, tropical/passionfruit, tropical/papaya, citrus/orange, citrus/grapefruit, and tropical/mango hops over the top of light aromas of biscuit malts with a hint of caramel sweetness.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of biscuit malts with a hint of caramel sweetness. That is followed by slightly stronger than moderate flavors of juicy tropical/pineapple, tropical/passionfruit, tropical/papaya, citrus/orange, citrus/grapefruit, and tropical/mango hops which impart a hint of bitterness which fades away almost instantly leaving juicy fruity hop flavors lingering.

M: Slightly lighter than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly crisp upfront with a hint of dryness in the finish.

O: A really nice juicy NE style IPA that really lets the hop flavors + aromas shine with minimal bitterness. Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol.

Picked-up a four-pack of cans at Kappy's in Norwell for about eighteen dollars. Have had, & liked brews from these guys before. My first brew with lupulin...decent, would not buy again (too much $)....

Pours a very hazy yellowish orange color with a one inch off white head that left ample blotchy lacing. Smells of tropical fruits, orange and a bit of pine. Tastes of orange, mango, papaya, pineapple and pine. Medium to full bodied, light carbonation, sticky and chewy mouth feel, lingering but mild bitter finish.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pale, orange-yellow body; thick, soapy white head. Big fruit aroma; citrus, melons, strawberries. Tart flavors; grapefruit and orange; light presence of cereal grain; strong hop bitterness. Medium body; dry and tart on the palate although some juicy sweetness also makes a presence.

The Mosaic and Simcoe hops do quite a number with this beer. In many ways, the beer starts out rather subtle, but let each sip develop, and you get some strong IBU presence on the tongue. The aromas blend well and are quite pleasing. A fine beer...
