16 oz can from Tavour. Hazy, milky pour, one finger foamy head. Light, dry hoppy aroma. Taste focuses on the hop variety, bitter citrusy notes, drying out at the finish. Heavy body, thick.

Draft at Casey's
Big pillowy creamy head, great retention and lacing, semi hazy orange golden color

Nose tons of fruit, tropical fruit and pineapple juice out front, like a tropical drink, citrus, mango, papaya, light malt

Taste mild sweet creamy malts, flaked oats or wheat, soft minerals, again loads of tropical fruit and pineapple, and again almost like tropical mixed drink, little mango, papaya, and citrus, very soft juicy, bit creamy

Mouth is med bod very soft creamy juicy, med carb, no alcohol

Overall pretty well done NEIPA, great tropical fruits, very soft juicy, enjoyable

Another citrus hop juice by TG. This is one of my least favorite offerings.
Look: cloudy golden orange with lots of particulates.
Taste: grapefruit and lemon with lots of bitterness.
Would have preferred a heavier mouthfeel.

A: The beer is very hazy/cloudy yellow in color. It poured with an eighth of a finger high white head that mostly died down, leaving a few specks of bubbles on the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of passionfruit and pine are present in the nose along with notes of orange citrus.
T: The taste follows the smell, except that the initial flavors are dominated by moderate to strong flavors of tropical passionfruit and orange citrus and the finish is dominated by moderate of pine and a strong dose of associated bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and both very juicy and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA seems more like a hybrid between a classic American Imperial IPA and a New England-style IPA given the bitterness in the taste and the crispness in the mouthfeel.

Toppling Goliath Twisted Galaxy DIPA/NEIPA, 8% ABV. Pours hazy orangish yellow with a four finger white head that left lots of foamy lacing. Lots of floaties. Nose is tropical fruit, taste follows with pineapple, grapefruit, a bit piney, with moderate bitterness. Excellent mouthfeel, overall excellent to near outstanding.

Another crazy find as a single can in the supermarket make your own six pack section. I’ve never seen beer from Iowa near Delaware. This is another great one. Awesome very drinkable for a DIPA. Beautiful citrus notes and flavor. Smooth and a little creamy. Very tasty.
