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.

Pours hazy, light gold in color with 1/3 inch head. Taste is dank herbal hops, mango and guava. Medium-light bodied, moderate carbonation slightly sweet. Makes for an above average dank ipa. Expected more juiciness for a beer with this name. Wanted way more pop. Gets better as it warms.

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.

The beer pours out a lightly hazy light golden color, with 1 finger of white head and a decent amount of sediment------------- the aromas are of sweet and juicy mango and pineapple---------------- the flavors are of light coconut, tartness, pine, orange, grapefruit, mango, soapy/grassy and stone fruit, the beer has a creamy full mouthfeel with a medium bitterness on the finish----------------- overall this beer is exceptional - what a nice take on the milkshake ipa, the mango does not come through on the flavor as much as I would like, but there is a melange of other tropical fruits that make this beer a tasty treat---------

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.

Picked up a can of this while I was in Vacaville, its from a brewery in the next town over. Since they support Will C Wood, I always go out of my way to support this brewery (that I otherwise wouldn't). Plus, make America juicy again was decent.

Anyways, pours a hazy yellow as expected, small 1/4" white head. The aroma had a little bit of a tropical feel to it. Nothing to make the giants of dry hopping shudder. Mango/papaya kind of vibe.

The taste leans on the sweeter end seemingly supplied by the mango. The bitterness is low, the body is soft. Whether that be from flaked oats and/or wheat I'm not sure. The below average carbonation will also make it seem less bitter. But it also is thinner than average probably, but its just fine like that. For a fruited ipa, it isn't terrible by any means, its probably one of the better ones out there. But overall, as an ipa being made in 2018, its just meh.

Somewhat surprised at the elevated score here, it was good, not great.

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.

This is a very nice and hoppy IPA with lots of piney and tropical fruit notes. It's complex but it is also smooth, refreshing and easy to drink. A very nice ale.
