Easy winner of the Best Beer with the Stupidest Name Ever contest.

No date on the can. Sent by that wonderful BA @lingenbrau.

Appearance is beyond cloudy, as a better description is a dirty light brown color with mild lacing and foam. Smell is strongly dank and juicy. Taste is tangy, dank, juicy, bitter, and hoppy. Feel is smooth for a beer with so much hops and alcohol.

This one was absolutely amazing. I wasn't expecting much, and after drinking it, I think I'd kill for a six pack of it.

I mean it-KILL.

4.74/5  rDev +9.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Poured into a 16 oz Troegs Snulip not sure when it was canned but from the flavor and the source it is fresh. Pours like orange pinapple juice, with a massive two finger sticky white head that leaves behind big thick foamy lines all over the glass.

Smell is passion fruit, papaya, guava, pinapple, mango, and grapefruit rind.

Taste follows as tropical as it gets up front, with some piney grapefruit in lingering finish.

Mouthfeel is a big medium, kind of sticky from the fresh hops, moderate carbonation, not dry at all, and the can says 9.3% ABV, but it drink much easier than that, dangerous.

Overall New England mainly Vermont may have made the style, but this is as good as any I have from any state....... Thanks @Lingenbrau for world class brew!

Canned 5/13/17; drank 5/21/17 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque orange/yellow appearance.

A violent pour yielded a HUGE bright white head; a thick curtain of tree-run lace.

Grapefruit, fresh cut grass, mild orange citrus & faint wheat dryness in the nose.

Soft, medium mouthfeel.

Grapefruit & fresh cut grass flavors up front; orange citrus & dry wheat notes on the finish. As this warmed, faint booze heat emerged.

Balanced & easy to enjoy; a nice NE DIPA. Careful with that abv...

4.49/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a whitewashed opaque yellow, with a frothy white head that barely lingers on the surface and laces moderately. Smells of mango, papaya, pineapple, and a hint of cardboard. Taste follows minus the cardboard, but also getting some vegetal flavors (broccoli and onion specifically). Feel is creamy and smooth with some noticeable heat from the alcohol. Overall this is a pretty good NEIPA styled beer. Noble keeps being very hit or miss for me with these can releases. This one fits right in the middle. Cheers!

Edit: 3 weeks after canning I revisited this one and it melded much better. Cardboard and vegetal flavors disappeared, and the fruity elements now dominate. Patience is a virtue. Cheers!

4.25/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured on tap at Noble Ale Works. Tapped yesterday. Brand new brew.

Look: Like hazy, watered-down orange juice. Yellowish glow to it.

Smell: A juicy blast of the tropics. Pineapple is prominent. Something else in there, too. Maybe apricot?

Taste: Juicy is an understatement. Pineapple juice plus hoppy bitterness. Still having a hard time putting a finger on it, but the flavor and finish is similar to other hazies I've tried.

Feel: Almost exactly the aftertaste when drinking the pineapple/mango juice from Trader Joe's. Plus that bitter, dryness you'd expect from a DIPA.

Overall: Delicious. Nothing mind-blowing, but wow this beer was way more than solid. Well-crafted, Galaxy hop-packed brew.
