Picked up a 4-pack from a local. Bottom dated, "canned on 11/27/19." Had the first one out of the can and was pleasantly surprised. Next day (today) I had one after work in a small tumbler. JTT pours a cloudy, hazy, amber-orange. It has a very thin, quickly dissipating white head. Normally I would be turned off by the lack of legs or standing. It has some legs, however. The bottom line for me was the taste and feel I noticed from the previous round the night before--I found it to be much better drinking than it perhaps looked at the pour.

Had a creamy malt, smooth and creamy, almost milk and bread like. Breakfast anyone?
It has a pretty sneaky dankness about it that is hidden by the aftertaste. Give it a minute. It is melon-y on the finish which is good at tamping down the resin. At first I thought the after tamp was too much, but I can see where it is ultimately more drinkable as brewed. They balanced it well I think.

Its a little on the herb-y--perfume-y side but it is saved by a grassy note that cuts it off in time. And the finishing melon juicy-ness somehow settles it all down.

It is not too alcohol-y and so very drinkable. It has a kick after a bit. It is a session beer. Just right.
It's super well-balanced. Each element works extremely well together
It is not over-carbonated. It has a very small but bright snap, super tiny and tight carbonation. Not overpowering at all. Well defined mouthfeel--a crisp but gentle, delicate yet brisk mouthfeel. Almost like the (gentle) bite of a Guinness.

It is flavorful with a punch but not too alcohol-y. You'll get a good run out of one or two without topping out-it is a perfect session brew. Overall an excellent beer. I would seek this one out again.

Soft yellow and hazy with lots of fine bubbles that are hard to see. Topped with 2 fingers of off white head.

Smells of mangos, pine, pineapple and orange juice.

Tastes of pine, pineapples, dank weed, green leaf, mangos and citrus. Fruit forward.

Medium body with moderate carbonation.

Got in Sacramento, drinking in Redding, Nov 28th, 2018. Well done brew.

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.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on July 16, 2018. Brewed with mango and lactose. Look is hazy. Smell and taste is tropical fruit. Feel is luscious.

A- Floury and uber hazy pale straw gold pour from the tallboy into a goblet with a small white head peaking at about a finger high. Good head retention and the fluffy cap dies out to a thick ring. Thick pillows of lace at the top and spotty lacing hits the glass here and there.

S- Juicy and the first things that come to mind are sweet melon, mango and bubble gum as this one really brings the tropical/stone fruit contingent in the aroma.

T- On the palate, it really becomes a juice bomb with the melon coming on extremely strong, a melon bomb, watermelon and mango/pineapple really pop off and the beer overall is clean. Each and every sip begins with the huge melon before opening up to floral, herbal, dank weed, tangerine, pineapple, mango, apricot, fresh sweet peach and ripe tart apricot. The flavor profile on this one is all hops and all clean and soft juicy fruits covering melon to peach.

MF- Light-medium overall body with crisp and puffy texture. The carbonation is moderately high and it ends with an herbal, citrus bitterness.

The absolute melon, mango and peach bomb of an IPA. Just grabbed this one randomly in a mixed pack at the Spirit Haus and super happy about. Juicy yes. Juicier yes.

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.
