Notes: An IPA without any boil hops, & a soft finish that lands delicately on the palate. Aroma of ripe, pungent, tropical fruit & citrus. Flavor with notes of red grapefruit & papaya, with hints of black tea.

A nice looking orange/pineapple juicy that pours with a decent head. No noticeable carbonation. Has a fruit juicy taste with grapefruit coming in first and orange second. Only very lightly bitter. Smooth on the palate and easy to drink. Overall a nice IPA and the name fits the beer. Special delivery from my BA friend @TheIPAHunter

Definitely a hazy beer, really good. Sloop makes great beer and this one is no exception. Would have it again! Had this and Franks American Pub in Downingtown. Great place. Good people and great beer. Enjoy!!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A: The color is a beautiful "glowy" golden color. It has an amazing snow white head that doesn't give in and is seemingly as thick as Fluff!

S: The smell is nice but muted. Orange blossom, grapefruit pith and lemongrass and overall tropical and maybe a touch of white peppercorn.

T: The taste is really good I would say mostly orange and other citrus flavors and maybe a touch of "grassyness" and also a bit of papaya is also noticed.

F: It's all in the name - Soft and Smooth!

O: This is a REALLY good NEIPA. I purchase this whenever it is available. Enjoy!

Pours a pale gold cloud. Smells citrusy and a slightly dank. Flavor is a little disappointing. The fruity citrus is quite muted. The slight bitter dank finish is nice. Super smooth. Nice but I think it falls flat where it matters most.

Canned 5-28-19
L: Like a slightly whited out orange juice. Small sticky lacing.. small head 1 minute post pour.
S: Very fresh tropical aroma, mixed with orange back drop.
T: Taste is rather mixed across the aroma profile. Nothing really jumps out. Lets call it balanced.
F: Carbonated up front with light bitterness. Smooth finish that leaves no lingering bitterness.
O: A very good tasting IPA. The overall flavors are a little flushed.. but it's still tasty!

4.1/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a completely opaque, yellow-orange color with a two finger white head. No lacing.

Aroma: Sweet tropical mango, papaya and tart tangerine. Slightly dank. Some soft white pepper and orange creamsicle. A touch of savory, sauteed onion.

Taste: Leads off with sweet flavors of clementine/orange gelato that quickly turn funky- with notes of pungent mango and ripe papaya. A transition happens midpalate, as the flavors quickly go from sweet to tart / tangy - almost as if the flavors are ripening in the beer as you drink. Just when you think the development is over, it ends cleanly on floral notes of hop resin and just a touch of sugarcookie.

Feel: Full bodied with low carbonation. Thick and fluffy without being overly viscous and stagnant.

Overall: Very enjoyable, hoppy, but well balanced enough so as to still being thirst quenching. I could see myself sessioning this, as could I see people who are a little afraid of IPAs warming up to the style after drinking it.

Look is hazy yellow. Smell is citrus/tropical fruit with a little grapefruit rind. Taste follows nose and very smooth. Feel is light to medium. Overall a nice IPA that I would drink again.

This looks outstanding and smells almost as good with a light fruit and tasty underlying hops note combination. This is a highly enjoyable IPA with excellent juiciness and a mellow tropical fruit flavored hop aftertaste that hits the spot, A dangerously crushable IPA with plenty of flavor. Sloop knows what it is doing.

A: The beer is very hazy and cloudy yellow in color. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that quickly died down, leaving some specks of bubbles on the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of grapefruit and tropical fruits are present in the nose. Aromas of mangos also start to become noticeable as the beer warms up.
T: The taste follows the smell and starts off with flavors of mangos and is followed by notes of grapefruit. There is a light to moderate amount of carbonation.
M: It feels medium-bodied and faintly smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is a little juicy and seems like a hybrid between an American IPA and a New England IPA.

Serving type: can

Jarquil colored, couple fingers of ivory head. Grassy aroma headlined by Nantucket Nectar juice drink, dank resin, and kiwi...very green, very fresh. Taste reminds me of green mango salad with lime, grapefruit Hi-chews, and passionfruit papaya tea. About your average bitterness, med-light body and smooth finish.

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2018, Red Session. Aroma is a bit dank and grassy with milky yeast notes and melon. Taste is really well balanced with milky yeast notes and soft bitterness.
