Looked the part. Weak smell and taste results in a very forgettable experience. It does get a touch better as it warms but not by much. Glad I tried but nothing worth seeking out. Pass.

Poured from a can into a tulip at 45 degrees,

Look: Pours a hazy lemon, yellow color with a good head
Aroma: Strong aroma of stonefruit, predominately peach. Melon and citrus as well. There cantaloupe, honeydew, and orange.
Taste: Flavors of citrus and melon mostly come forward settling out into a dry, bread and biscuit finish. Minimal to no hop bitterness.
Feel: Light, crisp, but well carbonated. Leaves a dry grainy finish on the tongue.

Overall: Stonefruit and citrus flavor all the way with bread/grain forward malts that finish dry. Looking for a stonefruit, peach NEIPA? Look no further. This one is NEIPA all the way folks. This is what you drink when you want a Two-Hearted, but have convinced yourself to venture out for once and try something different. You experience it, you enjoy it, you can say you did it, but in the end you remember why you love your Two-Hearted.

12oz canned 2-8-19 (opened 3-16-19)
1" white head on an orange/gold hazy IPA. Good retention. Nice lacing.
Soft, fruity nose full of both citrus and tropical aromas. Pineapple, mango, and orange maybe even a berry or two.
Fresh orange and pineapple juice, lemon and various other fruits that I can't decipher. Tastes good.
Soft wheat-y mouthfeel. Zesty "bitterness" that's appealing behind the fruity hop flavors.
Enjoyable, easy to drink and full of hop flavor.

Very hazy, pale yellow with a few floaties. A small white head with good retention and some lacing.

Subdued aroma. Lemon, orange, grapefruit, peach, mango, cracker, hay.

Thankfully the flavor is a bit better. Lemon and orange essence, yellow grapefruit, a bit of peach and mango, pineapple, and cracker; with just a touch of lemon and orange zest bitterness on the finish. Crisp and clean and lightly dry.

Medium-light mouthfeel with medium carbonation; feels slightly thin but makes for extreme drinkability. I could crush several of these in a row easily, no problem.

A nice new offering from Bell's. Nothing worth going crazy over, maybe slightly disappointing, (in my opinion) but still pretty likable. A great "session" NEIPA, imo.

Picked-up two four packs of cans at Kappy's in Norwell for about fourteen dollars each. Canned-on on date of 2/19/19. My third brew from these guys. Huge miss for me. If by "hazy" & "juicy" they are trying to stack-up to Tree House, Hill Farmstead - epic fail. This tastes like a bland, west-coast APA.

$9.99 for a 6 pack of 12oz cans.
Pours out to a cloudy medium yellow, forming a tall rocky head with beautiful retention and lots of nice sticky lace. Very nice looking beer. The nose is of fresh hops with tropical fruit, peach nectar, pineapple juice, mango and just a little pine. The body is medium with a mild carbonation, ~2.25 carbs or so. The taste is wonderful. Lots of fruit as mentioned above, a smooth juicy mouthfeel, medium-light bitterness, a rather clean finish for the style, some stone fruit in the finish. No off flavors or aromas.

This is one of the easiest drinking hazy IPA's I've had. The bitterness is well balanced, very "juicy" and fruity which makes it easy to drink, and an ABV that doesn't inhibit it's drinkability. I could see myself throwing back 3-4 of these on a nice summer day. I really enjoyed it, and will be going back to the store to pick up more. Glad to see this is a year round brew as I think it will be my go-to hazy IPA. Highly recommended.

Mild tropical flavors - mango, peach & passionfruit - but it doesn’t soar. Body is crisp and light, definitely get some Pilsen vibes. A good go-to shelf hazy IPA
