Tall can, pours out fully hazed medium yellow squash soup in color. It supports a frothy eggshell long lasting cap and leaves ample spots and small fields of lacing.

Complex nose with some fruity and sweet coconut and soft ripe melon.

Full on flavorful NEIPA, with the taste being driven by sweet pineapple, and again melon coming to mind. Yummy...go get some

On tap at Melzingah Tap House in Beacon, NY.

This one pours a hazy bright yellow color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like toasted coconut, lactose, lemony hops, grapefruit, and mango.

This has a nice light grassy bitterness there to help balance out the sweetness of everything else. The coconut flavor is nice, a little bit toasty and with a nice creamy sweetness. However, I definitely wish there was more coconut here. There's also some pink grapefruit, mango, and lemon hop flavor here.

This has a nice creamy and crisp mouthfeel- the body is deftly done and definitely doesn't feel too big.

This is a nice stab at this new trendy style.

poured into a pint glass via draft @ Mohawk Taproom (Scotia, NY)

color is a nice opaque yellow with a little bit of white foam

smell is coconut with very faint vanilla and citrus

taste follows the nose with the coconut being a little bit less potent

medium body

this was a good IPA with an interesting premise

On-tap at City Beer, New York, NY

A: The beer is very hazy yellow in color. It poured with a half finger high white head that died down, leaving a narrow collar around the edge of the glass and lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of coconuts are present in the nose along with hints of vanilla.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of coconuts with notes of vanilla and hints of tropical fruits. There is a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied, creamy and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a very interesting beer that tastes like a hybrid between an IPA and a milkshake.

Serving type: on-tap
