Notes: With Double Ruffled, our wings spread wider, and the feathers get more ruffled. Luscious, fresh-pressed textures burst with juicy tropical notes, while a balanced bitterness leads to a clean and crisp finish. Flavors of ripe mango, blueberry and bright citrus, from generous hoppings of El Dorado, Azacca, and Mosaic hops give this surprisingly hazy Double IPA a brilliant clarity of flavor.

A: cloudy; deep gold in color; 1 finger finely pored white head that receded to a thick collar; very nice lacing;

S: pineapple, grapefruit, mango;

T: a fruit bomb; more pineapple and orange that anything else; mild bitterness on the finish;

M: medium bodied; light to moderate carbonation; dry finish;

O: good, but not an example of a NEIPA that I would choose;

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

From a 16oz can, dated smudge/10/18. Served in a tulip.

Pours a lightly hazy, pale lemonade colour with a scant finger of soft, soapy head. Retention is meh, leaving a thin collar and a smear of lacing.

Soft, subtle, sweet nose of shortcake, orange flowers and something I can't quite put my finger on, sort of like cardboard or, better yet, like the inside of a bakery box.

Taste pretty much follows the nose, a creamy orange or tangerine sherbet character with berries and vanilla cookies. Softly sweet, flowery, almost papery, low-but-not-entirely-lacking bitterness. Yum.

Feel is lightly juicy and no more than medium bodied with adequate carbonation. A clean, crisp, smooth, easy drinking beverage that goes down like a beer half its abv.

Overall, that was delicious! Every time I think I've tasted everything that the NEIPA style has to offer someone brews up something unique.

L: Hazy, almost opaque golden orange except for the bottom of the glass which is translucent. Topped with a creamy white head with excellent retention, leaving sheets of lacing.

S: Orange marmalade, mango candy, pineapple, papaya, fruit-flavored multivitamins.

T: Tangerine, honeydew melon, green grape, mango, papaya, creamy biscuit malt. Leans sweet but is well-balanced with some orange peel bitterness.

F: Medium-full bodied, well carbonated, thick and slightly creamy. Slight sweet, but dries off on the finish.

O: A really solid DIPA!

All around bad beer. This is not an IPA. Tastes more like a wachusett blueberry then an IPA

The strangest sharp metallic smell and taste, I think I got an off can. Going to try to pick up another can and see what's up.
