I just recently had this for the first time. The look of the beer is very light for a hazy imperial ipa. The look is almost like a wheat beer. The nose is very unique. It reminds me of a juicy sweet corn. The flavor of this beer however is very appealing. It doesn't drink like a 9.5 abv beer. It's very crushable and, in my opinion, an excellent choice on a hot summer day

Juice bomb...

Juice bomb...

Juice bomb...

Crazy citrus presence....the big booze is virtually nonexistent...

Easily the best version of this series I've had...it can be overbearing with the OJ gig but it's pretty tasty after the initial shock...

Dig this...

Incredibly smooth for a 9.5 ABV. Hints of Juice with a Hazy finish.

Pours a hazy yellow/green with a white head.

Smells of ruby red grapefruit, pine resin, star fruit, and floral notes.

Taste is ruby red grapefruit with some pine nut giving way to floral notes. As it warms star fruit and herbal hops come out.

(19.2 oz can, 09 OCT 2022; purchased cold single 2.99... poured into my Belhaven pub pint)

L: pale, yellow-amber liquid; 'fake' haze?; tons of spongy, webby foam, which is admittedly pleasant to view, glossy-silky, dimpled, dumpy... can says (in CAPS): 'Imperial India Pale Ale with Natural Flavors'... the head don't hold (don't lace too) and the haze looks too clinically dialed in

S: 'fake' aromas as well? - Tropicana pineapple/orange/mango blend... its intensity and expression is too good to be true, and little alcohol presence to boot

T: but, oh yeah!, the alcohol blasts out on the palate, like a Hawaiian Screwdriver, good goblins!; bitter mango-pineapple aftertaste, with some high esters play... can't tell where the hops end and the natural flavors begin; yeah, it's juice, cocktail-style... flavors seem artificially accentuated; booming but no bueno, if you true

F: definitely a resinous residue; rounded, rivulet-ish wash... the alcohol is mildly strident, lighting up the palate... does it really need to be this boozy?

O: just fake all around... if this is a joke, it's a knee slapping good time... well-conceived but not in my wheelhouse (1883)

One of the juiciest IPAs I’ve had, unfortunately tastes more like juice than an IPA.

Hazy straw yellow with a substantial off white head that retreats to a light layer but leaves some nice lacing.
The aroma is tropical fruit -pineapple, tangerine, passion fruit, grapefruit. The taste follows the aroma plus some notes of green grapes, limes, fresh bread and pine resin. The finish is peppery with lingering grapefruit and pine.
The body is medium, fairly smooth and slightly sticky.
Altogether this is a really nice example of New England style IPA, very juice forward, moderate bitterness, very drinkable but with a sneaky kick.

From a 12oz can:

Appearance: Cloudy yellow, good head.

Smell: White grapefruit.

Taste: Extremely juice-like. Mix of grape, grapefruit, pineapple, mandarin orange juices. Very fruity. More cocktail-like than beer-like. Light body.

Overall: This one from New Belgium is probably the most juice-like beer I've ever had. It doesn't taste like juicy hops in beer, it literally tastes like a mix of juice. Not much beer character. It tastes pretty good, even though not very beer-like, and it does say it will be a juice force.

Pours a hazy orangish yellow, fluffy white head and some nice lacing. Smells like tropical juice drink, not that that's bad, it just doesn't taste like beer. Taste like tropical fruits, mango, papaya, guava, passionfruit and whatever else. Nice body, surprisingly easy to drink at 9.5%. I don't like hazy/juicy NEIPA's at all, but if someone put a gun to my head and said, "drink a hazy IPA or die" this would be it.

19.2oz can. Poured out a cloudy, golden orange color with a small, off-white head of foam. It left sudsy rings of lace on the glass. It smelled of grapefruit, orange, sweet caramel and some pine notes. Sweet tropical fruit taste with some piney bitterness and toasted caramel finish.

I really did not care for this one at all. Smells and tastes like a pineapple-orange tiki drink except with beer mixed in. The 9.5% ABV will get you drunk, that's for sure, but I just cannot get behind this one. Way, waayy too much fruit for my palate. This beer is so fruit-forward that I struggle to taste either the hops or the malt, it all gets buried in the overbearing pineapple citrus mélange.

It's not undrinkable, it's the same quality that most New Belgium beers are, so my dislike is not due to a brewing error or lack of care in the manufacture of the product, but I'd just as soon leave it on the shelf. I am kind of thirsty for some of that Dole pineapple orange juice now, however.

If you like obnoxiously fruity beers this one's for you.

To good health and good beer.

Love at first taste with this beer. Easily my go to when I'm at my local bottle shop if it's there. Surprisingly good at room temperature if I let it sit that long. Give it a try if you haven't already l.
