This beer lives up to the hyper. It is hazy and crushable. Easily one of the best NE style pale ales I have had. I can't wait to try more of their hop varieties in the near future.

This beer is available at almost every grocery store down in Louisiana and it's almost always super fresh. This stuff is a hazy, crushable, juicy, BANGER. Zombie Dust who?

On tap or in the bottle, doesn't matter. This is an outstanding pale ale, full of juicy citrus goodness, finishes semi dry with grapefruit peel, touch of pale malt sweetness. Medium slick feel. My go-to brew, almost always available fresh and always in the fridge.

Had this beer many times but just getting around to reviewing it. Had on tap out of a plastic to-go cup. Beer is a light gold color with a full haze and a pinky finger of creamy meringue like head. Aroma is super tropical. Lots of pineapple and a fresh, herbal, chive note as well. Aroma translates to the palate with the herbal dank bitterness more prevalent. Medium plus creaminess which is awesome considering it's only 5.3%. Overall this an awesome beer that checks all of the boxes for a NE style IPA while also having a crushable low abv. 94 points!

Drank on tap at The Avenue Pub, New Orleans, LA
Served in a pint glass

Cloudy, bright yellow ochre appearance. The liquid was topped by a super tight and creamy, two-finger tall, bone white crown that lasted for much of the session. Copious amounts of sticky, drippy lacing stuck along the glass.

The nose was incredibly fruity and bright. Passionfruit dominated. Orange and tangerine came through big time. Some clementine as well. Nicely sweet. Dank, weed-like notes were also apparent. Touch of tart lemon and grapefruit rind.

The flavor was also really fruity and juicy. Quite tangy. Loads of freshly squeezed orange and tangerine. Lemony in the center. Fairly tart. More lemony tartness on the finish. Some grapefruit pithiness came through as well. Hint of bitterness. Perfectly balanced.

Terrific soft, frothy mouthfeel. Fuller bodied for the style. Creamy and supple on the palate. Super smooth.

Envie is a fantastic, Northeast-style American pale ale that is super flavorful and ridiculously crushable. If I lived in Louisiana, this would certainly be my go-to six-pack.
