4.31/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Very nice head production, retention, and lacing. Body is a lemon yellow hue and quite pulpy and hazy.

Exceptionally bright and hoppy on the nose: mango, peach, pear, berries; mandarin orange and lemon; a touch of citrus peel; basil and oregano; a touch dank; honey. This has everything going on that a hop head could hope for.

Vanilla greets the palate, followed by peach, mango, and pineapple, that followed by both dank and bright herbs. Thick, sweet malt base, presenting honey and white bread.

Thick and creamy; full bodied. Presents higher than the 7.5% ABV, but entirely in a good way; there's no unnecessary heat or burn.

This is really a fantastic heavy NE-style IPA from start to finish. No complaints here!

Medium-pale gold, hazed to opacity under two fat fingers of white foam... Head showed nice persistence and draped thick lace down the glass... Aromas of sweet pale orchard fruit, hints of pine, and herbal grains... Sweet, ripe, creamy fruit juice of pineapple, pear, kiwi, and orange... Soft and smooth, moderately sweet with no bitterness to be found - a true fruit smoothie of a beer... 12/26/18 canning...

"American Citra hops meet Australia's Vic Secret hops creating a unique blend of lemon-lime, peach and mango. Easy drinking w/ medium body and little bitterness"

Freshie can, direct from the brewery...canned 12-26-18

Pours out in a hazed up NEIPA style, lasting frothy cap and leaving thicker strands of lace on the glass.

Sniff reveals ripe and pleasing tropical fruit notes, with smokey pineapple, lime and melon coming to mind.

On the palate it follows the nose, more tropicals, with lime, pineapple, grapefruit, melon, mango and again a hint of smoke all with some piney hops drying out the finish.

All in all this is another fine take on everybody's favorite style...smooth, fresh tasting, fruited up, all with a dry finish...deliciousness in a can...go get some
