look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 oz can. 11/4/18

Straw golden color with copper highlights. A tower of pure white foam stands tall, 3" high. Slow dissipation. Excellent lacing.

The hops, man! They stank!! Ripe honeydew melon, pineapple bits, peppery wheat, lemmon zip and light, grainy golden malt that hits your nose hard. Citrus and caramel in subtle ways, give off a rather, fresh-hop style aroma.

Hop cone attack! Fresh, green, hoppy flavors really do pack a punch. Orange rind, pineapple, lemmon zest with green and herbal undertones.The crispy, sharp malty flavor and feel comes off very light and earthy with nice , golden field grain effects. The hops end dry and bitter which lingers.

Overall, complexity is medium to high with some sharp tones flavorwise. I'm usiallt pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoy Wachusett offerings.

The fruitiness works better in the smell than the taste. More specifically the aftertaste. Not bad, just not my cup of tea. Or, in this case, glass of beer.

Surprisingly good low cost NEIPA.
Nice and crispy, citrousy and piney. Great can design ( it did what it was supposed to, drew my attention when I wanted to try something "new" ).

Moderate head with a few streaks for lace. Borderline whitish, dark gold color. Cloudy.

Clean smelling nose of tropical fruit (pineapple, mango, and blackberry). Light floral hop touch.

The flavor is very biting, too much so in my humble opinion. The malt base gets completely overwhelmed by the bittering hop. Decent body and moderate to low carbonation. Long, long bitter aftertaste.

Picked-up a six-pack of cans at Cedarville Wine and Spirits in Plymouth for about ten dollars. The can design is marketing genius, the beer so-so. Would buy again, for the shits & giggles of sharing the can design.

Aroma is a light citrus, a bit grainy. Pours a hazy light yellow without opaqueness with a fluffy white head. Taste is citrus with a good hop bite. Ends up being a pretty drinkable beer, easy to toss a couple back. Wally and this beer are changing my opinion of Wachusett Brewing, they're both pretty solid beers and don't go over the top with the citrus. Well done guys!

Pretty good NEIPA. Nothing to make it stick out from the crowd, usual tropical juicy flavor with light malt backbone. But for $9.99 for a six pack this is definitely a steal
