A: The beer is very hazy to cloudy whitish yellow in color. It poured with a half finger high white head that left lots of lacing down the sides of the glass and a thin film of bubbles covering the surface after it died down.
S: Moderate aromas of stone fruit are present in the nose along with notes of lime.
T: The taste follows the smell, but has more balance between the flavors of lime and stone fruit. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied and juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer tastes like it could come from New England, but has a good mix of aromas and flavors from hops "Down Under."

10/17/18 canning date..freshie tall can from the source.


Full on milk shakey, over hazed NEIPA pour..large and lasting and lasting cap, then leaving fine and wispy strands of lacing, as well as some blobs of sheeting.

Ripe and fresh pineapple and earthy dank on the sniff.

Bright, complex, flavorful, delicious...nutty yeastiness in the final pours.....wow, full flavor and quite yummy, with lime, pineapple, fresh dank....great stuff...go get some

Extraordinarily cloudy -- giving this beer caramel look. No head. A couple of spots for lace.

I get sage and oregano smells. Attractive but not very beer like.

It starts with a mild, almost creamy base. This is overwhelmed by a strong, seriously bitter hop stab on the swallow. interestingly, the aftertaste is not nearly so severe. Rich body with a lower level of carbonation. There's also a strong yeast flavor throughout.

A classic east coast offering. Incredibly cloudy and juice like; murky orange. The nose is yuge; intoxicating! So juicelike one doesn't pick up much alcohol! So easy to drink!
