We're constantly brewing new IPAs looking for bold hop flavor. With this beer, our brewers thought it was so good that we decided to serve it straight from the tanks - unfiltered, unprocessed, and raw - to let all the fruit-forward hop flavors shine. The result is a hazy beer with modest bitterness and intense hop character. To some, making an unfiltered hop bomb may seem crazy, but to us, its a hazy little thing called IPA.

Definitely looks hazy, decent lacing with minimal head. Tropical citrus and sweet floral aroma with a hint of pine. Flavor is pretty similar, tropical, floral, slight hop bitterness. The mouthfeel is somewhat dry but remains refreshing. Overall this is a standard hazy IPA, by all means good but nothing spectacular.

This is the one of the few IPAs I like because It does not taste like drinking a pinecone

The beer pours a white and creamy head that takes a while to dissipate. The beer itself is a slightly cloudy orange color that looks nice.

The smell is good. It has a strong orange note and a bit of cream that makes it resemble a creamsicle.

The taste is good. It has an orange note and creamsicle finish.

The feel is good. It has a medium body with a creamy texture and very little carbonation. It has a light acidity to it and a creamy finish.

Overall, this is a decent NE IPA and extremely drinkable than other NE IPAs.

Taste is more important to me than anything else, and I love the taste of this one. Going strictly on that, I’d say it’s the best of all the Hazy IPAs I’ve ever had.

My go to. Hazy but light orange, not brown. A hint of fruit. A hint of tin roof. Good clean buzz.

Not bad for a widely available mass-produced IPA. At least it tastes like a NEIPA, as advertised. It’s nicely finished and relatively hazy. I like that it comes in 12 oz. cans and has a lower ABV than similarly tasty craft IPAs. At a party, I would pick it from a cooler of other grocery store beers.

Pretty average and never really calls out to me, but it's fine, and you can find it anywhere, so that's nice. A decent-to-good high quality control beer that you can find on the moon is a good thing.
