Fruity! But, not too fruity. Actually, the perfect amount of fruit. Great aftertaste and slightly hoppy. The texture could be more interesting but overall a great beer.

Friday night, sitting back watching my Cleveland Indians get slaughtered by Minnesota. I'll buy beer for a year for whichever team takes Kipnis off our hands.

Anyway, let's get to it.

Look - It's pretty much as hazy and unfiltered as the name on the bottle would imply. Murky orange without any clarity though light penetrates of course. Head is a finger or so and thick. Moderate carbonation from what I can actually see.

Smell - Floral dominated with touches of random fruits here and there but the nose is surprisingly one dimensional for the most part. Beer is fresh until late July so the age shouldn't play much of a factor.

Taste - Really picks up here. Lotsa naval orange and tangerine on this front. The floral aspects stick around as expected but that super fruity orange really takes the forefront and the finish is quite reminiscent of raw orange juice.

Feel - Surprisingly thick for the style. Swallows smooth with a low level of carbonation.

Overall - This is a pretty solid NE style IPA especially coming out of a larger brewer. And at $9.99 a sixer you have an absolute steal, though mine was part of a kroger mix a six purchased several weeks ago. Try it.

Excellent tropical IPA. Pours a beautiful hazy gold. Smells and tastes fruity. Smooth, yet still has a touch of bitterness to remind you you're drinking an ipa. 7.5% is respectable. Id prefer some pine/grass in there to get it that danky effect but whatever, its a great brew.

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

Look: Pour dark yellow in color, with cloudy/haze complexity. 3 fingers worth of frothy white head which dissipates rapidly. Loads or lacing on the glass.
Smell: Juice forward, with orange, grapefruit, tangerine, mango and papaya comprising the total smell. Nice smelling, with some lemongrass hop presence.
Taste: Follows the nose, with a slight gritty bready taste. Citrus fruit flavor is strong and well implemented. Some stonefruit flavoring as well.
Feel: Medium in body and weight, with low carbonation. Soft and pillowy. Very nice.
Overall: Very well made hazy IPA. I would have again. I am grateful to have tried this beer, and I recommend. Cheers!

pours opaque yellow/orange. nice white head that fades into a nice little cap of foam and good lacing.
nose is tropical fruit, citrus, hops. not a punch in the face like some NEIPA offerings, but definitely there.
taste follows suit. low bitterness. ripe mango, papaya, tropical fruit, grapefruit, pineapple. lightly malty sweetness. really does taste kind of like mango/pineapple juice.
mouthfeel is soft and smooth. low carbonation. lingering ripe mango.
overall a surprisingly good, nationally distributed NEIPA.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a grip shaped goblet: color is thick, hazy, almost dense gold; head presents at least 1.5 inch thick with a rounded top over the glass edge, taking minutes to lower and still leaves at least 1/4 inch top.

Smell is a bit soft, light floral and citrus with pineapple.

Taste follows aroma with light presence with floral, citrus, and pineapple like hop flavors, not much malt depth or notable adjuncts - spice is noticeable but not distinguishable.

Mouthfeel is a softened ipa at first then the bitterness overtakes and dries out the tongue. I'm still not sure on how the hazy/NE IPA sub style should play out in terms of presence, but I don't think i prefer how this variation plays out.

Overall - presentation is decent, just a bit to thick; smell is subdued; taste brings more than aroma; mouthfeel is soft and then quickly dry.

you know, i knew i would like this, brewery knows what they're doing (obviously). La Folie a sour i loved, have to look see if it's available again. Rampant at $4 a bomber back in 2016 got me thru many an unexpectedly, unemployed, day after an incredibly stupid job interview. man, i remember some of the most stupid people you could possibly imagine ...

the review. good. i hate NEIPA's but if you're gonna call yourself juicy haze, then be juicy haze. i don't know about the juicy part, i can certainly get more, better juice, from, i don't know, juice? but as an beer, this is good. the color is stupid, but hazy, opaque. good. aroma is malty, beer like. tastes follows, lots of peach (reminds me of Rampant) , other almost beer like flavor, mouthfeel is off the charts. one review, maybe two? said this was watery? no, it's pretty substantial this off work friday AM. don't get me started on my stupid work schedule,

bottom line (now that i'm bored) is this is good, NEIPAs are stupid, brewery knows what they're doing, and i'd likely have it again. out.

A: Pours typical hazed orange color with two fingers of creamy/fluffy head. Very good retention with sporadic wet lacing.

S: Weak aroma. Spices and some faint sweet fruits. Also wheat.

T/M: Funky. Fruits. Spices. Zesty orange. Various fruits. Hop bitterness is on the light side of things. A little pine. Wheat. Medium bodied with just enough carbonation. The finish is semi dry with a little linger of fruits and hops. Has a Blue Moon taste.

O: Pretty good beer. Nothing special. Not the best example of the style. Not worth the price (at least what I paid). Taste is a little off, but still enjoyable to drink.

Cheers!

The beer pours a hazy orange-yellow color with a one finger head of white foam. The head faded rather fast leaving traces of spiderweb lacing behind. The nose is rich in tropical fruits of mango, pineapple, and papaya with a large showing of tangerine and lemon. The taste begins with a big hit of the fruits that are in the nose, with more snd more fruit developing throughout. All the while there is a modest hop taste of citrus and some lighter herbal and pine tastes. In the end with the increase in fruit and the moderate hop, one is left with a rather bright and sweeter juicy taste that is rather clean in profile. The body of the brew is slightly thicker which is rather nice for the fruity and slightly sweeter taste profile. Overall a pretty good beer. It was a little on the sweeter side and less hoppy side for a 7.5 % brew, but it was an easy drinker with a rather clean taste. Not too shabby.

I'm a long time alcoholic, probably have Cirrhosis, since I tried it, this is the only beer I drink now. Can drink a whole 6 pack and don't get a hangover. wish I could give it 6/5 stars. Don't believe what other people say, this is the best beer on the PLANET!!!

I created an account on this website just to rate this beer, that is how much I enjoy it.

12 oz bottle, enjoy by 5/13/18. Pours hazy dark yellow with a thin white head that quickly goes to a thin film that leaves a little lacing. Strangely, there's no sediment.

The aroma is muted - sweet fruit with some onion hops.

The flavor is sweet doughy fruit with some garlic/onion hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a bit watery.

Overall, a very subdued NE IPA.

16 oz can, with BB (?) dating stamped on the bottom- 24 June 2018

Real nice looking heavily hazed NEIPA kinda look going on here...lasting and lasting khaki cap, leaving low sheeting and fine scattered and spotty lacing.

Perfumy, flowery and mildly fruited up qualities on the nose.

Wow, impressive stuff here, especially for a brew available in the usual beer stores....IE: a shelfie....

Mild soft and ripe pineapple, with lazy mango and melon notes added to the finish. Tasty and well worth a try....go get some

This is maybe one of the best hazy iPas that you can get at pretty much any grocer or total wine. No it’s not your recently famous neighborhood brewery who sells out every Friday with a weekly release, but it’s fruity and affordable. Juicy taste along w great aroma. Finishes smooth and easy drinking. Around $9-10 a six pack and found at most stores who stock new Belgium. Try it!

From a tap at the 2018 ATL Winter Beer Festival.
Orange amber body with a tall foamy head.
Juicy with moderate hop strength and low bitterness for style.
Near medium body with high carbonation.
