4.15/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Served in an over-sized wine glass from a 16oz can.

Appearance: Gold but super cloudy coming off with a thick white head rising roughly half a finger's length off the body.

Smell: Not the best of aromas, 8ts kinda like walking through a hall of vats at a brewery. Floral and piney aroma which might smell better depending on how you feel about it.

Taste: Sweet floral feel with notes of a light marshmallow and heavy hops but super smooth. On top of that ridiculously addicting.

Mouth: Sticky body with a strong finish and soft carbonation.

Overall: Good brew, not trying to knock it at all but kinda feels like a re-label from one of their other batches coming from ETNYC. Salud!

3.51/5  rDev -16%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Undated (WTF) can into pint glass. Pours a murky straw-amber color with a brief off-white head. Initial impression is a boozy, sweet, grassy concoction that maybe falls somewhere in the NEIPA spectrum. Not your prototypical NEIPA, though. Mouthfeel is thick, chewy, sticky, and moderately carbonated. Alcohol is in your face. Finish fades to bitter citrus rind overlaid by candy sweetness. At best, a very heavy-handed variation on the style. At worst, close to a drain pour. Between the sweetness, the odd flavor, and the ABV, I couldn't possibly drink more than one of these.
Ever.

A: The beer is very hazy to cloudy whitish yellow in color. It poured with a finger high white head that died down, leaving a narrow collar around the edge, a thin film on the surface, and lots of lacing down the sides fo the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of gooseberries and lychee are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, starting off with flavors of gooseberries with some additional flavors of lychees and notes of grapefruit, the latter of which lingers into the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and very juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The thing that stood out about this beer was how remarkably easy it was to drink considering its strength as it did a very good job at masking nearly all of the alcohol from the taste.

2.89/5  rDev -30.9%
look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

I don't see a date listed on the can or the label sticker. The label sticker does say to "DRINK FRESH + STORE COLD."

Appearance: The body is a milky-yellow color that is completely opaque. It has a very large head that is solid and has some creamy texture around the edges and various bubbles and craters towards the center. The color of the head is slightly off-white. It has fantastic retention and it leaves very good lacing.

Aroma: There are some slightly floral aromas mixed with garlic and cut weeds. As it lingers on the nose for a while some mango comes through, and as the glass pulls away from the nose it makes room for a bit of pineapple. Most of these aromas are nice but feel very compressed in that they don't reach from the glass very far, and don't have a strong aroma.

Taste: The beer is very grassy. There's a lot of hay character, mixed with some bay leaf spice that is very old. Following this is some alcohol and a bit of what tastes like floral soap. As a whole it's interesting but not appealing.

Mouthfeel: Thick and chewy. Heavy sipper with a strong bitterness. Awkward but possible to drink.

Overall: The can states that this is "1 PINT 10.5% ALC BY VOL DOUBLE DRY HOPPED TRIPLE INDIA PALE ALE WITH MILK SUGAR." It is difficult to really enjoy this beer because of its eccentricities. It feels thicker and heavier than comparable beers. It also has this odd combination of grassy and old dried flowers mixed with old leaf spice which puts it in a strange place on the palate. This doesn't compete with the average higher alcohol competitors in the hazy/New England IPA market. I don't really recommend it and I wouldn't drink it again.

I got a can of this beer from the beer store just around the corner. It poured a hazy yellow with white head that is leaving some lace. The scent had nice dank fruit notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with tropical fruit peel presence. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall its a solid beer.
