12oz can, best before 09/25/2020. Sample from the brewery. India Pale Ale with orange peel. 6.3% ABV.

Touch of haze, golden with amber hues, and a thin, tight-bubbled lace. Very tropical in the nose. Smooth, low-ish carbonation with some prickliness, medium-bodied with a slight chewiness. A bit of caramel and honey sweetness plays wells with the deep orange flavors that combined creates a well-rounded juicy character on the palate. There's some ripe, fleshy mango, too. Bitter orange peels, faint floral and herbal notes, and some bread crust follows. Finish is a bit oily, resiny, and powdery.

Lush Puppy is indeed a citrusy, juicy, and luscious IPA. Solid offering.

On-tap at Coors Field, Denver, CO

A: The beer is hazy amber yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that left lots of bubbles on the surface and a narrow collar around the edge.
S: Light to moderate aromas of citrus and tropical fruit hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of orange citrus, mango, and passionfruit. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied and very juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is a little lighter in body compared to other New England IPAs.

12 oz can, best by 8/10/19. Pours hazy dark orange gold with a medium creamy white head that retains fairly well and laces the glass some.

The aroma is a bit subdued - sweet fruit and resiny hops.

The flavor is sweet bready malt with lots of fruity hops and a medium bitter finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a nice NE IPA.
