look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Served from a can 7 months old;

A: Hazy orange, with a thick with head with great retention;

A: Strong grapefruit, with orange peel and lemongrass on the second plane, intense hoppy character;

T: Grapefruit, tangerine and orange, high bitterness and low citric sweetness. Medium body with high carbonation. Its bitterness is intense and lingering;

M:Citric and bitter, very low sweetness and a dry finish;

O: Refreashing, hoppy and bitter. This beer is juicy, but it is an american IPA, and although the hoppe flavors and smells are present, the bitterness is here too. With less alcohol than most NEIPAs, it is a good everyday NEIPA.

Pint can poured into a tulip.

Appearance: Hazy orange. Short white head that dissipates quickly.

Aroma: Pine, mango, grapefruit, lemon. Fruity, hoppy.

Taste: Follows nose. Pretty bitter. Hop bitterness kind of overtakes the fruity notes. Not sure about this “smooth” business I see advertised on the can. Pretty prickly.

Mouthfeel: Bitter enough that it’s a slow sipper.

Overall: Pretty good but not spectacular hoppy IPA. Pleasant, but doesn’t approach Lunch or Heady.

Pours an unfiltered looking orangey gold color with quickly dissipating white head and little to no lacing. Nose is a bit of citrus and some piney hops. Taste is similar with more hop bitterness. Rather weak for the style but not bad.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 16oz can into 16oz tulip glass. Canned on 2/22/18.

Look: Light amber in color. Has a slight unfiltered look, but doesn't qualify as "hazy." 1/2" head formation, with minimal lacing.

Smell: Bright citrus like grapefruit, orange, and lemon on the nose, with a piney/hoppy presence. Slight floral aroma on the beer as well. Mostly hops and citrus on the nose though. Pretty great smelling.

Taste: Hop profile dominant. Bitter in taste, reminding me of a traditional WC IPA, not NEIPA. Hops are dominant, with slight citrus taste. Some astringency in taste as well, but I can't pinpoint exactly what.

Feel: Medium in body, with high-ish carbonation. Not a soft mouthfeel as you would expect from NEIPA.

Overall: This isn't a terrible beer by anymeans, just not a good example of an NEIPA. If you like bitter brews as in WC IPAS (which I do), you'll enjoy this. As always, I am glad I was able to try it. Cheers!
