16 oz, brewery purchase by a buddy a few days ago...11/1/17 canning date

Pours clouded orange/light brownish, looser khaki cap, lasting nicely, and then leaves thicker and again loose ringed lacing.

Nose pops with oranges, ripe mango and dull pineapple.

Tasty, tasty, tasty...more orange, mango, pineapple....tropical fruity goodness abounds. Super smooth and dangerously easy to quaff...lives up to the hype....they expanded the brewery so it hopefully will become easier to procure some of this fine stuff.

A: Cloudy almost orange juice like. Decent head.

S: Oranges by the grove full.

T: Oranges and mangos with a slight malt sweetness

M: Smooth, very smooth. My favorite part of this beer is the mouth feel.

O: Amazing beer from a great brewery. Very crushable

A: Cloudy orange body. Nice amount of head at first pour that gave way to a slight ring of head and some lacing while drinking the beer.

S: The hops come out in a tropical way. Picking out smells of oranges and grapefruit.

T: Getting the tropical smells again on the taste. Grapefruit, oranges, and mangos seem to be the largest tastes of the beer.

M: Very soft silky mouthfeel. Very little carbonation tingle coming out on the beer. Extremely smooth drinking beer. Possibly the best part of an awesome beer.

O: Top notch beer. Easily one the best beers I have drank. The mouthfeel, in my opinion, stands above the other areas of an phenominal beer.

Pouring a cold can into a snifter. The beer pours a cloudy orange color with a bleached white creamy head of 1.5cm. The foam fades slowly to a sturdy surface layer and leaves clingy lattice on the sides of my glass after each sip. Some bubbles stick to the bottom of my glass instead of rising to the surface.
The aroma is big and juicy right from the pour with peaches and mango dominant also orange citrus notes rising from my glass. Definitely sweet and fruity right form the start.
The first sip reveals very fine tingly carbonation rolling across my palate. Silky smooth texture with a medium body, very soft mouthfeel on this beer. Easy to drink fairly quickly without really noticing my glass getting empty.
Flavor is all fruit with peach and mango mixing with orange citrus notes. Generally a sweet beer from start to finish with no hints of the booze and only a little bit of biscuity malt comes through as I sample the beer.
The top example of the NE IPA?

Decanted from a 16 oz (473 ml) can into a conical pint glass; canned on 10/24/17.
A: Pours a cloudy, dark orange color with one inch plus, white head displaying clearing and, good retention. Rings of lacing evident all the way down the glass.
S: A bouquet of oranges and mangos from hops predominate.
T: Semi-sweet with palate basically following the nose closely. Bitterness appropriately understated.
M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Creamy with an unusually crisp finish.
O: This is as close an approach to a Mimosa as a beer is capable of. A pleasure and a gift, but not just for breakfast any more. Kudos to the master brewer.

16oz can poured Into a tulip
Canned 10/24/17

A- pours a murky dark orange color with one-finger creamy white head that has good retention after the pour

S- aroma bursts of bright fresh tropical and citrus hops; mango, passionfruit, cantaloupe, orange pith, grapefruit & peach gummy ring candy

T- fresh bright citrus and tropical hops follow the nose with notes of orange pith, mango, passionfruit, grapefruit peel & ripe melon. Mid-palate gives just a trace of sweetness that brings out the flavor of peach gummy ring candy. The finish is juicy and citrusy and lingers dry with a hint of citrus zest

M- medium body with medium carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that continues into a crisp dry finish, super drinkable

O- crushable and juicy, plenty of citrus hops without being too bitter, outstanding
