A: The beer is slightly hazy amber yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that quickly died down, leaving a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of papayas and pineapple are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, having flavors of pineapples along with notes of papayas and hints of mangos with a light to moderate amount of bitterness from the hops.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp and juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA has a lot of aromas and flavors of tropical fruit hops and does a very good job at masking any traces of alcohol from the taste.

Served in a tulip from the can.

Hazy dark gold color with medium to heavy bubbles on the body. White head rising maybe half a finger's length with a vigorous pour.

Smell: light floral s couple want which dissipates a little too quickly.

Taste: has grapefruit juice with an even heavier citrus skin, seriously thirst quenching taste offset with pine and floral.

Mouth: touch dry and semi sticky. Medium bubbles and full body which feels heavy at first but lightens up as the beer warms.

Overall: Good brew, last one for the night after exploring NYC like beer was going out of style tomorrow. Salud.

Pours a beautiful translucent golden with a thin but persistent head.
Smell is apricot and peach. Big on the tropical fruits along with some pleasant floral notes.
Taste is honey and apricot, some grassiness, notes of bitter citrus rind play in and out.
Mouthfeel is where this brew falls a bit short. Very thin and nothing of the juiciness that is supposed to go hand in hand with the haze. It has a mouthfeel that is appropriate for a typical pale ale but falls short of the aim of the style.
Overall this is a nice brew from a solid brewery. Really enjoyable if you like the tropical juice flavor and really more of a hybrid that brings neipa flavors with a wcipa body and bitter bite. I would drink again and would love to try it on tap

Double dry hopped with Mosaic and Denali hops... Medium gold and hazy, produces aromas of sweet citrus and juicy pineapple... Much of the same on the taste, tropical and sweet, very little bitterness... Smooth and soft with just a touch of dank pine tack on the finish... Very nice... 11/8/18 canning...

16oz can $4.49 I think. Not quite a hazy NEIPA and yet still too hazy to be a clear West Coast. Aroma is super fruity hops. Flavor too. Its tasty but still somehow feels less than notable.

Pours hazy orange gold with a finger of foam which leaves behind chunky lacing.

Smells of overripe mango primarily, with an earthiness underneath.

Also quite mango in flavor, with a cattiness that never quite gets to onion territory. Perhaps this is the dank alluded to on the can.

Soft, full, a bit sticky. Not boozy, but quite sweet. Good drinkability.

Dirty gold color and hazy. Pleasant initial head which fades quickly to a thin film of bubbles. The lace initially starts with a ring and then random spots after that.

I get a faint beef stew aroma as an off aroma. It's a bit like a locker room. In the background are the traditional smells of an IPA.

Smooth body with a richer lightly toasted malt up front. There's a light sweetness initially. The hop provides a moderately bitter finish. Still, the beef stew remains which I don't rate favorably. If you like this, you may love this beer. Me, not so much.
