Dated 5/21/18 on the bottom of the can, a little over 3 weeks since brewing.

Pours an unfiltered yellow straw with high particulate and two + half fingers of incredibly rocky head. Nose starts off with tropical fruit, papaya, mango, over-ripened guava, slight pink grapefruit pith, biscuity malt and some pilsner grain. Taste falls off quite a bit from the aroma; mango, slight citrus, biscuity/pilsner malt and a hint of lactose hits your palate fast and dissipates quickly. Mouthfeel is a medium-light boosted by the lactose, without it would be a bit thin for 6.5%. Medium sweetness, low bitterness, almost no drying. Low carbonation. Nothing to write home about. If you're just getting in to NEIPAs this may be a nice low priced introduction at $11 for a 4 pack of 16ers. Doesn't compete with any of the big dogs. I'd put it in a class with the Sam Adams New England IPA. Shooting for the style but not hitting the mark.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Canned 05/21/18

Appearance - Pours slightly hazy and golden yellow in color with a fair amount of sediment floating about. White, near finger width head that shows sub-par retention before dying down to a mostly barren surface with a thin ring of suds around the edge of the glass.

Smell - Mango mostly, with some accompanying citrus character.

Taste - Strong mango upfront and throughout. Lesser Orange. Touch of pineapple. Light bready malts. Finish is quick with a fading the aforementioned fruity flavors.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with low, lightly tingly carbonation. Creamy texture makes this an easy drinker, though a flat and mostly lifeless finish.

Overall - They added real mango to this and it shows. Lactose too, so technically this might be a milkshake IPA? It's good, but lacks depth outside that mango flavor, and the lack of carbonation is a real problem.

Canned on 3/8/18; drank on 4/7/18; labeled as a "Hazy New England-Style IPA with Passion Fruit"; a good attempt at the style, but lacks body and the fruit addition really adds way too much to the sweetness

Poured from a 16 oz. can into a tulip glass.
This beer pours out a very bright yellow, almost identical to sunny d in color. A true crown doesn't really form but there are sporadic white bubbles that sit on top.
The smell of it is a lot of citrus. Orange the most.
The taste of the brew is a lot like the smell but has a nice malt in there as well. It's almost like crackers. A little dry feeling with the tangy citrus.
Overall, I've had better from the style. But it is solid and enjoyable.

12 oz can- Pours very hazy straw golden with a large bubble white head that does not stick around. Aroma is pungent, citrusy, mostly grapefruit mango and orange. The taste is strong mango, juicy as all hell. Super drinkable, but not the best hazy IPA i have had.

Undated can into pint gl;ass. Pours a slightly hazy honey color with a brief off-white head. Initial impression is fairly sweet citrus, followed by mango, lemonade, and caramel. Mouthfeel is medium, as is carbonation. Finish is sweet and fruity. Not bad, but not gonna set the other NEIPAs back much.

Canned 4/25/18; drank 5/17/18 @ the Yarchives.

Cloudy yellow/orange appearance.

A rough pour yielded a big, bright white head; decent lace.

Mango, mild dry grass & faint lemon notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Mango & lemon flavors up front; dry grass notes on the finish.

Decent & fruity, but not a magnificent NE IPA by any stretch.
