Hazy gold with three fingers of cream color head. Rings and splotches of lace as the head drops.
Smell is pungent floral hops some pine note.
Taste is pungent floral hops some pine orange sweet malts.
Mouthfeel is light to medium with good carbonation. The finish is lightly dry with a fairly balanced finish.
Overall a tasty IPA.

Poured from a 16oz can brought to me by my cousin from out of state.

Look: turbid golden
Nose: citrus, pine, grass, mango, orange, salted caramel, pineapple smoothie. Amazing nose
Taste: grass, citrus, vanilla, coconut, pineapple, orange, mango, banana, beautiful balance between sweet fruits/vanilla, and bitter/grassy hops.

Love it, hopefully drink it again.

First canning I've seen from the hazy/neipa series these guys started last year. Made with organic grains and they told me at the taproom that they are working on sourcing organic versions of the new school hops they use. Canned on what looks like 5/24/19
Pours a bright golden yeloow/orange with a thick, cloudy white head that slowly pops leaving big craters and soapy lacing. This is my sweet spot of hazy attractiveness, doesn't look like fruit juice, just a light haze that refracts the light beautifully.
Smell is big time pineapple and guava. Nothing overly complex but very bright and present.
Taste is vaguely citrusy, leaning more tangerine to me. Lemon zest/lemon candy right out front that mellows into the tangerine flesh and a light crackeriness in the middle, softer fruit (peach, guava?) come on faint at the end along with a pretty wc style pine finish.
Mouthfeel is full with some prickly carbonation. The combo works well with a soft lead in that gets cut off with a bright bite that leaves you ready for another sip.
Overall this is better than I remember trying in the tap room last year (although the few in this 'hazy by nature' series that I tried kinda all run together). I'm not sure if it's really a NEIPA as they just call it a juicy hazy ipa and it definitely still has some wc bite to it. But it's definitely a pleasant drinker and one I will grab again from a brewery that is doing a good job of keeping with the times without dropping their identity.
