Pours an opaque bright-orange with two fingers of white foam. Head retention is good, as is lacing. Aroma is citrus, tangerine, and papaya. There is a dry biscuity, earthy malt behind that carries a light bitterness. A kiss of honey adds a little sweetness. Flavor profile is tangerine, papaya, mango, and orange with a strong earthy malt and barley backdrop. Honey sticks to the tongue and sweetens up the back end. Great balance and dynamics between the hops and malts. Mouth feel is a little fuzzy, and touches on chalky on the back end. It has a medium thickness. Overall, a surprising amount of malt showing through this, especially for being double dry-hopped.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 16oz can.

This thing is super hazy and a nice gold color. Has a bunch of white head and tons of lacing.
Love the smell here. Pineapple hits first, followed by citurs, melon, grapefruit and mango.
Bunch of juicy hops on the taste. Melon and tropical fruit flavors followed by citrus notes and some underlying earthy hops.
Super juicy and thick feel.
This was a real nice hazy IPA, loved it.

This Must Be Where IPA’s Go When They Die... Well, Raul knows one thing for sure: this IPA I am currently consuming is dying a slow death in my stomach. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves here. First things first, the damn thang pours and glows an ethereal yellow/gold hue that I’m sure Scrooge McDuck wouldn’t mind doing a few laps in. Wait, I pour the rest of the can out... Ah, yes, a beautiful, soft white head forms... Should I take a sip? It’s ok. Soft tropical fruits end on a really mild backbone. Think of your favorite Victoria Secret angel just giving you a slight pat on the ass.

Yeah, Raul likes that.

Opaque bright yellow, full single finger foam.

Tropical, citric -- yes!

Ripe fruit, not citric, but melon or peach. Reads like El Dorado and Citra. Reminds me of Fremont's Grove Stand but not quite as intense.

Not dry, full body but not marshmallow dense.

This beer packs a well balanced Valencia sweet taste, with a pleasantnt finish. Everything is well executed except for the disgusting looking chunks that float around or sink to the bottom. I've had many NEIPA's in cans with sediment, but this thing is the chunkiest beer ive ever seen. Maybe it's been sitting on the shelf too long?

Opaque, nearly pulpy orange brew. Head production is impressive, growing upon itself to 3 full fingers of marshmallow-hued foam. Retention is very good, and lacing is phenomenal.

Strong hoppy aroma: very juicy and herbal. Mildly dank. Fruit notes are about 60-40 in favor of tropical over citrus. Melon, mango, oregano, mandarin orange, peach, berries, lemon, ruby red grapefruit, pepper, honey, and wheat.

Similarly juicy and herbal on the palate. Juicy-sweet, with tons of hop flavor. Really, really juicy: mango, pineapple, honey, vanilla, with pepper and oregano accents, and a touch of leafy green dankness - very restrained, however, in particular for Citra and Amarillo (which could be a function of the beer's age which, while very fresh, is unknown for an exact date). Finishes with a bit of citrus peel bite, with low bitterness overall.

Very, very, very smooth mouthfeel. Somehow still lively, despite coming across almost like a smoothie or a very thin milkshake. Very few non-NE breweries succeed at capturing that feel when making a NE-style IPA, but this one is, stylistically, dialed in - not to say it quite matches the velvety smoothness of the best.

This is an excellent IPA, through and through.

16 ounce can into tulip glass; no can dating, but is a recent local release. Pours opaquely hazy golden amber/light orange color with a 2 finger fairly dense and rocky off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a large cap that lasts. Thick soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big mandarin orange juice, lemon, lime, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, berries, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, light honey, 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 mandarin orange juice, lemon, lime, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, berries, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, light honey, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Mild pine, zesty, herbal, floral, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of mandarin orange juice, lemon, lime, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, berries, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, light honey, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt flavors; with a solid malt/bitterness balance, and no cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is great. Slight lingering resins/rinds near the end of the glass. Minimal warming alcohol for 7%. Overall this is an amazing NEIPA. All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the mildly bitter/drying finish. Great soft feel, not overly drying. Awesome Citra, Wai-iti, and Amarillo profile. Amazingly juicy and lightly dank/earthy hop complexity; perfectly balanced wheat/oat/malt backbone, not overly sweet from lingering dryness. A highly enjoyable offering, and spot on style example as expected.

Bright citrus with overripe melon/mango notes. Deep orange haze with a snow globe full of floaties just a little over a month old. Most think that's a turn off but I love it. Very good beer but a tad overpriced to be in normal rotation.
