Hazy gold/yellow body, frothy white tight bubbly and lasting head. Aroma is mango, tangerine, apricot, grassy, some light pine/pineapple - not an explosive but nice and present aromas. Taste Is mostly a mango, apricot, and tangerine bond. Has a slight tangerine/orange rind hotness to it that I’ve experienced in some, for example, moonraker beers before, but not to the detriment of the flavor. Really restrained malt body with a hint of flaked wheat. Overall very low bitterness. Pillowy and medium light body with light carbonation that keeps the beer slightly crisp.

No date date, but recent release

Appearance - Pours hazy and dirty golden yellow with an off-white, near two-finger width head. Strong lacing results in a thin, consistent layer of suds with a strong thickening up around the edge of the glass. Strong lacing, with big chunks, lines and spots decorating the sides.

Smell - The aroma hits on mellow pineapple and melon with lesser guava and citrus.

Taste - Fair amount of juiciness upfront, with hints of citrus and melon. That fair juiciness is quickly met by a formidable amount of clean cereal grain maltiness. Quick to the finish with distant citrus lingering beneath the malty cereal sweetness.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with fair carbonation. Slick, easy drinker. Quaffable.

Overall - The can promotes this beer as 'super-delicious'. That's debatable. It's drinkable. It's smooth. I find the flavor profile boring, though, and oddly dominated by the malts. Not expected at all considering the style.

An exceptional juice bomb, super crushable and is one of the smoothest Ive had. This is a must buy if I ever see it on the shelf, its just sooo smooth. Lots of grapefruot pith, pineapple and some guava, with a nice banana notes that compliments the smooth mouthfeel.

Super easy drinking, theres a very slight bready feel to it, but it blends in nicely. I could drink this for breakfast and not feel guily, its just an amazing brew and I hope it sticks around.

Highly recommended for those just starting to get to know NE IPA's....this one is just delicious, and without the bitterness some have.
