Feel - medium light body and a light carb, slight crisp
Overall - pretty good

This isn’t really a juicy IPA. It’s more west coast meets east coast. For the brewers out there tastes like US-05 and US-04 with more boiled hops than later hops. It’s a far cry from NEIPAs. Also, maybe it was a bad batch but these cans tend to have some TPO issues with wet cardboard and the off flavor of slight oxidation in the finish which dulls this beer out even more. For the price, it’s ok.

12 oz can.
Hazy amber body. Decent white head.
Juicy and fruity IPA with moderate strength flavor, aroma and bitterness for style.
Even the medium body seems juicy.

look: Slightly hazy light orange. Not as hazy as any NEIPA I've had.
smell: Some subtle citrus.
taste: Similar to the nose. Not a bad IPA but not the NEIPA advertised.

12oz Can. Best by July 18, 2018. Guessing it was canned January 18th, consumed January 27th, so pretty darn fresh.

Pours hazy yellowish orange with a small white head that leaves a ring and faint cap.

Aroma of citrus and some tropical fruits. Touch of bread/cracker malt behind it. Moderate strength.

Flavor is where this shines. Nice citrus notes, especially oranges, some tropical fruits, very light malt backbone offering just a touch of sweetness. Decent bitterness compared to some other NEIPAs, which I'm glad to see.

Medium bodied. A bit oily. Light to moderate carbonation.

I'm pretty impressed! Very tasty brew from Red Hare. Only bought a single to try, but will probably be back for a 6-pack.

Pours a hazy light orange, decent lingering head. Smell is of citrus notes and some alcohol. Taste follows with massive grapefruit, orange and sweet mandarins. Not much bitterness and a super smooth mouthfeel. Would love some more dry hop character in this but otherwise a solid beer.

Definitely worth a try, one of Red Hares best beers.

Pours a hazy orange with two fingers white head.
Smells like an orange soda, lots of citrus aroma, a bit of orange marmalade.
Taste is similar with the citrus, thankfully doesn't taste like orange soda. Getting more orange and red grapefruit.
Medium bodied with good carbonation.
Probably the best Red Hare I've had to date.
