Draft at taproom. Hazy yellow golden, thin creamy white head. Soft malty, bready aroma. Taste is mild, sweet, bready, faint citrus. Full mouthfeel, creamy.

Another murky, unfiltered orange julius looking beer. Poor head retention and very little lacing.
Aroma is ok - meaning I smell malt before the citrus blast of grapefruit and oranges. There are some subtle herbaceous notes under the standard NEIPA hop nose profile, just enough to keep it interesting.
Malty up front - another nice change - then the juicy hop acids slide in and surprise! Surprise! We have balance.
Soft bittering but it's unmistakably there, adding depth to the malt and contrast to the flavor hop's citrus load.
Nearly medium bodied with enough residual sugars to lend a chewy mouth feel, oat and toasted grain character bleeds through the slightly syrupy sweetness.
A good example of the style for me with less "juice" and more beer character than ( too) many NEIPA's.

Poured into a 16 oz Nordic pint glass canned on 2/12/20. Pours an attractive hazy yellow with a finger sticky white head that leaves thin streaks of lace with nice retention. 4.25

Smell is peach, herbal earthy undertones, melon, papaya, and apricot. 4

Taste follows peach, melon, papaya, and apricot really well balanced and more assertive than the nose. 4.25

Mouthfeel is about medium, sticky not dry, soft carbonation, and at 6% drinks a little bigger but very drinkable. 4.25

Overall this is a rock solid low ABV NEIPA and I will get this again when fresh. 4.25

A: Pours a hazy light yellow color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap

S: Citrus and floral hops up front. Some light malty sweetness in there as well

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the citrus and floral hop notes and then picks up some light bready malt sweetness. Finishes with lingering floral notes

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A good NE IPA that is very easy to drink. Low bitterness and quite soft and smooth. Solid

Had on tap. Hazy golden body with a white cap. Sweet and ripe fruit aromas star: peach, orange, pineapple, lime, guava and slight piney hops. Taste is muddled in comparison, fruits are sweet but not as ripe, honey and hop resin star towards the finish. Feels resinous, sweet, cool, and slightly dank

Can. Fruity aroma, mostly citrus. Lemon, grapefruit flavors with solid hoppy bitterness. Light malt and mouthfeel. Solid NEIPA but nothing memorable.

Pours a pale gold, almost grapefruit juice color, cloudy with a half finger white head that settles to a film quickly.

Aroma has grapefruit and lemon and orange pith notes, so all citrus. Pleasant and slightly sweet.

Taste is similar with a semi-sweet pale malt base and ample floral citrus hop notes. This is a very nice flavor, less sweet in a good way with a bit of bitterness in the finish.

The feel is soft but a little thin - thinner than most other NEIPAs out there, so it has a more refreshing mouthfeel to it. There is a tiny bit of burn in the finish too.

I have not been a fan of Bunker's beer in the past and have largely left it alone, but I am impressed with the flavor on this one. The one knock I have is the small burn in the finish, which seems silly for a 6% beer.

Pours hazy orange-ish yellow, with a nice bit if foam. Foam collapsed within a minute of pouring at the first sip. The taste is good...a bit of bitter, and has a bit of a pine needle aftertaste that lasts for a bit. Really small bubble carbonation throughout. Easy to drink. I like the smell. Nothing off-putting about this beer at all.
