Pours from 16 ounce Prowler bought at Liquor Shed hazy straw yellow, significant head of foam. Smells of pine needles, grapefruit but mostly pine. Pine needles taste, grapefruit, hint of tropical fruit, fairly bitter. Juicy mouthfeel, good IPA.

Rich, lasting lace. It starts four fingers thick and leaves a couple of thick streaks for lace. Very cloudy naturally with an apricot juice color.

Fresh, weedy hop aroma. Not too strong, which gives a bit of malt to the nose as well.

This is a well balanced, juicy IPA. Citrus and pineapple flavored hop. Like the smell, the hop isn't overly strong or bitter, although the aftertaste is lengthy. There's a bit of anise as well. High carbonation with a moderate body.

Pours an orange juice color with a white head. Medium lacing. Smell is bitter orange juice. Tastes like bitter orange juice. Mouthfeel is light. Overall, it's a bitter orange juice.

Hazy gold with two fingers of off white head.
Smell fruity melon hops.
Taste Lush fruity malty and bitter.
Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Finish is balanced and bitter sweet.
Overall a pleasant brew.

12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy and cloudy golden with a small white head that fades leaving nice retention and sticky lacing. The aromas have citrus leading the way along with some tropical notes. Some bread and crackers in the mix. The flavors follow the nose for the most part. Hints of orange and pineapple. Some fresh grass. Moderate bitterness. Mild sweetness. Finishes juicy. Alcohol basically goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. It's fluffy, smooth and refreshing.

This is a nice IPA. It has alot of the characteristics that you would expect from a "New England IPA". It's enjoyable and fun to drink.

12 ounce can into tulip glass; no can dating, but was just released locally. Pours fairly hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice thick soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, peach, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, lemon/orange zest, light pepper/pine, honey, wheat, cracker, biscuit, light caramel, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, grapefruit, peach, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, lemon/orange zest, light pepper/pine, honey, wheat, cracker, biscuit, light caramel, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very mild pine, citrus peel, herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, peach, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, lemon/orange zest, light pepper/pine, honey, wheat, cracker, biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt flavors; with an awesome malt/bitterness balance, and no lingering hop astringency after the finish. Slightly increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/grainy, and fairly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 7%. Overall this is an excellent NEIPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt flavors; very smooth and refreshing to drink with the mildly bitter/drying finish. Super juicy Citra hops with perfectly balanced malts. Never overly sweet/heavy feeling. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example; despite being less hazy than most others. Post review I discovered some yeast was cemented on the bottom of the can after I rinsed it out; so it probably could have been more hazy after all.
