Notes / Commercial Description:
As our first NEIPA ever, we’re very pleased with the results of this bonus release. What made us leap into the fire of this controversial yet adored beer style? The inspiration of head brewer Brandon Stanko of course. Everything about this brew from it’s hazy full body to the logo design has been inspired by the music he listens to while brewing.

NEIPA? Certainly looks like a NEIPA, but taste, mouthfeel is more straight-up IPA, though a very good IPA! Interesting take on the style, but IMJO lacks the "juiciness" of a lot of NEIPA's I've had...reminds me of Stone's Fear-Movie-Lions.

A: The beer is very hazy light yellow in color—too hazy to see if there is any visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down, consistently leaving a short head covering the surface.
S: Moderate aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose—limes seem to stand out in particular—along with notes of passionfruit.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has flavors of limes and passionfruit with a light amount of accompanying bitterness from the hops.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is a little more bitter and less juicy compared to other beers in the style, but has interesting and unique aromas and flavors of lime citrus.

Canned on 8/20/18. Poured into a Teku glass. Claims to be a NEIPA, initial pour was fairly clear. I mixed the can a little and continued to pour this got the beer a bit hazier. Citra and galaxy are an excellent hop combination. This one had a lot of citrus notes and a bit of peach. Taste was similar to the aroma. It was a little more bitter than you typically get with NEIPAs. Mouthfeel was a bit thin for the style. Overall not a bad beer but this can lacked a lot of qualities I associate with a NEIPA.

8/2/18 canning; features Citra and Galaxy hops... Hazy, medium-golden yellow body with a coupla fingers of white foam... Nice flavor profile of pith and pine - moderately bitter, not too sweet... Additional elements of fruits are kept subdued and the beer has a clear and clean, fresh presentation... Plush carbonation and a cleansing finish... I'm very impressed...

Poured from a 16oz can into a speiglau ipa glass.

Aroma is a dry herbal not much fruity flavor.

Taste is not very New England. Very herbal and light. Not much body.

A pretty good beer, but not what I expected.

Pours slightly hazy, gold in color with 1/4 inch head. Taste is sugared oranges, lime zest, and tangerine. Medium bodied, high carbonation, sweet. Nice and juicy. One of the better DuClaw IPAs I have had. Should have gotten ore. Really good IPA.
