16 fl oz can
Served in an oversized, stemless, wine glass

This beer pours a turbid, dull, bronze color. It is topped with two inches of creamy, beige head that leaves lacing rings.

It has an odd fruity aroma. It is a weird combination of citrus and ripe, red fruit. Citrus becomes more the focus as it warms.

The taste is odd, too. I don't even know how to describe it. I do get more citrus as it warms and the more I consume. But is just has an off flavor that I can't pinpoint.

Medium

This beer is unlike any NEIPA that I have tried. I am not sure if my palate was compromised, or I got a bad can. I have three more to try and will update my review if I find a different experience.

Looks like a NEIPA, but I don't like that look
Nice dank aroma upfront, then lots of mango and some passionfruit.
A little piney, lots of tropical flavors, a bit sweet.
Very soft, full mouthfeel.
It's good, but I just don't think I can get too into NEIPAs

16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 2/2/2018. Pours moderately hazy golden amber/light orange color with a 1-2 dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, lemon/orange peel, light pepper/pine, wheat, white bread dough, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, lemon/orange peel, light pepper/pine, wheat, white bread dough, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very mild pine, citrus peel, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, lemon/orange peel, light pepper/pine, wheat, white bread dough, toasted biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy hop earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 7.5%. Overall this an excellent NEIPA. All around great complexity, robustness and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the mildly bitter/drying finish, never aggressive. Very juicy and lightly dank Citra hop complexity; nice sized bready malt backbone, not overly sweet/heavy. This was pretty harsh and resinous/drying on the finish when I had the first canned batch, but is much more improved now. Impressively soft mouthfeel. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.
