Beautiful beer. Pours a bright turbid straw yellow to orange. Thick bright white head on heavy pour. Nose is sherbet like. Orange peel and juice. Taste of citrus. Notes of orange, grapefruit peel, lemon zest and peaches. Honestly one dimensional as in I really only get those citrus notes. But they are huge! And delicious. Creamy silky body that’s easy on the tounge. Hoppy finish to close out this beer. Ya no kidding right? 8lbs per barrel so it better finish hoppy ;)

Looks perfect, gold hazy body that has a nice thick, creamy feel and light bitterness. Nose is fruity, taste is juicy as you would expect just from looking at it. One of the few that live up to the hype.

Came across this one purely by chance recently, and was pretty excited to dig in...

Bottled on 9/14/18

Pours an opaque and glossy golden peach with a finger of fluffy white head; solid retention and uniform lacing sticks around a good while.

Aromas of deep herbal grass, huge tangerine, orange, and citrus fruit, dank, green, piney, and spicy hops; vivid and bright; hints of creaminess form as the bouquet quiets.

Taste brings a detailed, prickly hop balance, intensely herbal/earthy but cut slightly by juicy citrus notes of mango, orange, and tangerine; a level burst of flavor is consistent and the thoroughly enjoyable profile holds an impressive balance of weight (considering it’s DDH treatment) that has it verging on sessionable.

Mouthfeel is pure silk on the palate, with leveled carbonation and a near-perfect medium body; goes down like nothing, with just slight residual hops on an earthy finish hanging around to remember it by.

Damn impressive in its drinkability and nuanced raw hop notes. Drains the Citra dry to find a beautiful medium between raw, intense, and juicy; superior example of balance in a NEIPA.

Simple put this beer is perfection. Rich, creamy, smooth while bursting with tropical juice goodness. The balance is perfect which is what separates the truly elite beers above the rest. Wish is was available all the time....

Absurdly opaque yellow-tan with a minimal, bubbly white blanket.

Smell is sweaty mango and peach with dank af cannabis and a hint of biscuit, while taste continues to bring on mango, mostly green, with a touch of pine, and even more juicy peach.

The medium-thin body has a smooth, crisp carbonation that expands to a filling froth before a bone dry finish.

An unbalanced treat, but I actually enjoyed regular a bit more.

12oz bottle with a date that's hard to read but it's there and i'm pretty sure it says "Manifested on 9-18-18" (or something close).
Totally opaque and surely the most NEIPA of any "NEIPA" I've tried to date when it comes to the hazy train. Murky pale orange/yellow color...hard to describe. 1/2" white head with falls to a cap rather quickly. No lace.
Juicy with pineapple and berry aromas. Oranges too and grapefruit - the red type.
Orange-pineapple juice. It's good but that's what it is...not much complexity.
Full bodied and round mouthfeel. Very easy to drink and very little bitterness. Some heat. A touch of a drying out of the mouth affect late.
It's very good, but I'm at a 4...no more.

merky af, sludge status. bright white head is fluffy and leaves some nice lace. pleasant aromas of lemon, grapefruit, mango, dankness, pine. palate follows with a candied fruit melange up front - peaches, orange, mango, grapefruit coming to mind. bitterness provided by grapefruity and piney bitterness on the back end, some herbaceous danky notes. the mouthfeel is thick, pretty fluffy but borderline chalkyness as it warms.
