Welcome to the future. Our collective human consciousness, or Ghost in the Machine, has gained a tolerance for hops beyond what mankind has ever known before. This double India Pale Ale is the necessary outcome. Brewed with obscene quantities of hand-selected Citra hops from our favorite farm in Yakima Valley, WA. Expect pungent grapefruit aromas and flavors, tropical fruit, and less harsh bitterness than most IIPAs.

Poured from a 16 oz can dated 9/11/2023 into a Willi Becher pint glass.
L - Pours a hazy orange color with a fluffy white head that dissipates slowly.
S - Smells of citrus.
T - Taste follows the smell, loads of citrus and tropical fruits.
F - Creamy with a medium body and carbonation. Almost feels like orange juice.
O - Outstanding New England IPA.

Opaque cloudiness has an apricot to bruised peach color and a frothy white head. Aromas of tropical fruit are given off easily upon opening, but settle in to a more tangerine citrus vibe with an addition of oat / malt sweetness. On the thicker side of feel, but not too heavy feeling (medium/medium-plus). Little bit of a malt-heavy opening with a more fruit rind and oat/grain opening that I find in quite a few cloudy IPAs, especially when cold. Sweeter citrus near the opening becomes more classic grapefruit deeper in the taste, especially deeper into the pour. This take reminds me of some of the first beers I tried that look like this, though with a notch lower vibrancy in the fruitiness of the hops.

16 oz. can dated 9/11/2023
Purchased at Beverage Outlet in Augusta GA on 9/23

Durty tan-orange color. Two fingers varied cream head. Spotty curtain lacing, full surface ring and continents. No floaties or yeast sediment.
Strong pineapple, pine, pepper, mango, orange aromas.
Pine, lemon zest, melon, pineapple, nectarine, pale malt-bread flavors.
Smooth up front with a nice bitter zing across the tongue. Mild bitter aftertaste. Good carbonation. No alcohol or hop bite.
Comparable to other high scoring NEIPA's. Definite buy when I find it this fresh.

16oz can. Date stamp on bottom lip is 'MANIFESTED 09/05/23'.
Hazy, straw colored body. One finger of white pillow head. Leaves behind nearly full walls of lacing.
Aroma of ripe fruits - orange, melon, grapefruit, mango, and a bit of pineapple. Minor pine intrusion.
Taste is full of ripe fruit - grapefruit, orange, melon, mango, and pineapple. Following the initial sweetness, there is pine resin which introduces a little bitterness, but remains secondary. Buzz of ripe fruit lingers in the aftertaste.
More than medium mouth feel, with a soft texture. Slight tongue sting. Excellent carbonation.
Really like that the expression of fruit is not overly ripe, and that there is an inclusion of minor bitterness for balance. Avoids the onion. So inviting to drink because of the flavors, nose, and mouth feel.

On tap at The Brass Tap, Cedar Falls, IA. Served in a snifter. Juicy opaque bright yellow in appearance, with a thick brilliant white head that left lots of pretty lacing as it settled. Huge notes of grapefruit greet the nose, followed by orange, tropical fruit, and citrus zest. These follow onto the palate as well, with a decent malt backbone providing structure without getting in the way. Mouthfeel is smooth, with a bitterness that isn't at all overpowering and a finish that is clean and crisp. This is a delicious and well-balanced beer that hits all the right notes. It also goes great with tacos. :)

A thick, attractive white head sits atop an opaque yellow body. Lovely aroma of grapefruit & tropical fruit. Bitter & sweet, perhaps a bit more bitter than I like. Flavor is a nice mix of grapefruit, pineapple & tropical fruit , just as implied & some bread & cracker. Medium viscous with adequate carbonation, no detectable presence of alcohol. Impressive.
