look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

From 16 oz can dated 11 Oct 17

Pours a lightly hazy straw yellow with barely a trace of clean white head. Settles to a film

Smells of pineapple and other tropicals

Taste in line with style and smells; tropical hop bomb

A little thin for the abv but nice carbonation. As a lager fan I d7g, others may be turned off by the level of carbonation

Overall pretty good in a more and more crowded category

I get nervous when i have two new beers in one night, and I think they're both 4.5's - but, man, am I diggin' this beer! Pale gold with a faint haze, fat head that took a while to settle down... Aromas of tropical and citrus fruits, floral and slightly herbal and grassy at the same time... Crisp and clear bitterness, moderate sugars of the lemony pixie-dust kind, with a nice light and airy feel - delivers the goods without being too obvious about it - lots of grapefruit and pith, a little pine around the edge... Can't just be me... Good stuff... 6/12/17 canning...

A fabulous beer. Great example of a New England hazy IPA.
Poured into my favorite stemmed tulip glass from a pint can. Wonderful aroma and appearance. Highly recommended.

Another thanks out to Patrick for this.

Two Juicy pours like orange juice, yet a little white washed. It's a bright yellow with a tint of orange, and there is an initial frothy white head that fades to just a ring around the coast of the glass. It leaves a mild lacing.

Grapefruit plunges forward, but it smells a little dirty and honestly a bit muted. Some rind, some orange pulp. Yeah, I said it smells like orange pulp.

It tastes very grapefruit forward as well. Citric notes dominate in general, with just mentions of mango and pine. Some crushed, maybe even powdered hard candy, like necklace candy, sweetness follows along.

This starts soft but ends abrasive and bitter. It's well carbonated, tingly even, and masks it's elevated abv very well.

Overall, this beer seems to get a lot of buzz. I think it's good, not great, and this was a can that is only two weeks old. Granted, this is only my first time with Two Juicy, and I just had it after what I considered a phenomenal beer, so maybe I'm wrong. Irregardless, it was still a pleasure to try. Thanks again Patrick. Cheers!

Can dated 7/6:
Pours a hazy pale yellow, though I can see through it at the thin portion of the glass. Head is huge and fluffy bright white, The small bubbles last long and lace the glass fairly well.

The smell is slightly dank citrus pith with high notes of lemon zest and orange juice. Bright and fruity in one aspect, bitter with a little bite on the other.

Carbonation and bitterness provide a little nip to my palate. This adds a little to the slightly watery opening. The citrus rind, pith heavy but with a little zest, comes on and seems to bring a little body to the party. The beer stays bitter, but that light lemon zest from the nose provides a little relief.

Not as juicy as I thought (or as I recall from my first try of it), but it does fit a Citra IPA pretty well. Not as soft as the cloudy NE IPAs, either. This can actually is more of a standard to west coast style, which is just fine.

This looks really interesting. canned May 6, 2017

Pours a big fluffy fizzy 1+ finger head that fades at a med pace, some soapy lacing, hazy slight clear golden yellow color.

Nose juicy hops, citrus, tangerine, orange juice, a little grapefruit, a little pith, sweet candy malt with orange marmalade and orange cake frosting, hint of booze, hint grassy earthy hop

Taste brings mild sweet malts, candy malts, quickly into orange juice, orange marmalade and candied orange zest as well, tangerine clementine fruit, a hint of grapefruit and pith, again the mild grassy earthy hop note in the background, a little warming booze, plenty of candy notes without being overly sweet, but somewhat juicy, lots of orange citrus, also a touch of mint candy at the back end. Finish is sticky, not really dry, a little more warming booze, pith and pulp feel, little rind bitterness.

Mouth is med to a bit fuller bod, decent fluffy carbonation, bit of warming booze

Overall Ok, not quite what I would expect for NEIPA but good, lots of citrus especially orange/tangerine, somewhat juicy, not creamy, a bit too boozy and candy like for NEIPA, and I'm really not liking this trend of Imperializing or doubling up the NEIPAs, the things that make a NEIPA great are opposite from what makes a DIPA in general, it just destroys everything good about the NEIPA.

Canned 12/15/17 .

Almost clear pale straw color. Minimal head that dissipated quickly. Unripened citrus fruit, pineapple, lemon, pine, faint dankness, light grassy note. Medium-light body. Tacky grassy straw and sour grapefruit aftertaste. Undetectable 8.2% ABV.

More "East meets West" in style than NEIPA.

Just tried this for the first time and absolutely loved it. Extremely juicy without feeling or tasting like a "fruit beer" and very aromatic. There's a definite hoppy-citrus aroma to it which carries over to the taste. At 8.2 percent ABV, it hits you nicely without you really noticing because it's so smooth (very little bite) and drinkable. Definitely an all-time NEIPA, at least in my experience. Pretty affordable, too, at least near me ($11.49 for a 4-pack of pint cans in central NH), compared to so many other craft brews. Can't go wrong with this one.

Poured from a 16oz can (canned on date: 08 June 2017 - 10 Days Fresh!) into a 16oz (Two Roads branded) Sahm Belgian Tulip/Balloon glass

A - Pours a straw yellow color with medium haze (far from turbid) and capped by a full 1-fingers worth of a creamy, white head. Great eye candy that is on mark with Focal Bangar. (5.0)

S - Soft, yet impactful consisting of sweet orange, grapefruit, tangerine and pineapple. As it warms, hints of coconut peek through the fruity melange. Far in the background, some spicy and resinous hops can be perceived. (5.0)

T - Aroma carries through onto the palate with the orange and (white) grapefruit flavors being the dominant players. Two Juicy finishes bone dry with a citrus rind pith lingering bitterness. (5.0)

M - Really, really soft and creamy with a relatively thin mouthfeel. This drinks well below its advertised ABV making this supremely "crushable." (5.0)

O - This is a very, very well made "The Alchemist -or- Lawson's Finest Liquids-style" DIPA from Two Roads and can find no fault...hence my score. They do well with Sip Of Sunshine and have entered the fray with their own interpretation of those classics and this one does not disappoint. If you don't have access to beers from either of those OG Vermont breweries, this is a fine example. (5.0)

notes of peach, melon, bubblegum, honey, orange, lemon/lime, some green herbal notes and a spicy pine. overall nose and flavor profile are really nice -only thing this beer needs is a fuller/smoother mouthfeel and some balance from a bready malts... just ends up being a little bit sharp and astringent and lacking some roundness.

This beer is legit. Had it for the first time a few weeks back but now on the 2nd or 3rd one i've had, i'm just getting a chance to review. Pours like a fizzy milkshake but with a yellower orange juice color. Completely opaque with a thin lacing. Smell is like tropicana orange pineapple juice with maybe some guava/mango mixed in. Taste is what you expect off the nose and it goes down extremely smooth. Mouthfeel is exceptional for an 8.2% ABV brew. This might be a go-to NEIPA for me now.

On-tap at Mugs Alehouse, Brooklyn, NY

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head.
S: Light to moderate aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose—oranges seem to stand out in particular.
T: The taste follows the smell and has strong flavors of orange citrus from the hops along with a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. No bitterness is perceptible.
O: This beer is surprisingly not bitter for an IPA. It definitely lives up to its name iand is very "juicy."

Serving type: on-tap

L: Poured from a tallboy can to a snifter glass. Had a yellowish color and a very cloudy consistency. There was a half inch of foamy, fairly long-lasting head. Very good lacing.

S: A solid aroma of hops, malt, citrus, and tropical fruits.

T: Tasted of a little bit of malt (not particularly present), a good amount of tropical fruit (mango, pineapple), a nice shot of hops), and a decent bit of citrus (orange). At first, the flavor seems a little thin and weak, but after awhile it kind of perks up. The tropical fruits really seem to do a lot of the heavy lifting here. Pretty tasty.

F: A good amount of carbonation with a creamy finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This beer kind of grew on me after a bit. Not the greatest NE IPA, but worth a look.

This is one of the haziest, prettiest beers I've ever poured. Two Roads hit a home run with this Juicy JUUUUUIIICCCCYYYY "NEIPA". Drank 4 of these, 2 poured into the glass and 2 out of the can.

L: Any NEIPA fan's mouth with water with the pouring of this beer, just a beautiful haze that one would expect from an unfiltered NEIPA. Thin head, feels like an expert pour every time.
S: Just like getting a juicy hazy hop blend thrown directly into your nostrils and straight down your throat. An enticing smell to say the least.
T: Looks can be deceiving, a NEIPA double should be juicy, but it should also have some kick and this is where this beer lacks any luster. Gets blown out of the water by beers like the Thomas Hooker No Filter.
F: easy drinking, another candidate for the jungle juice of IPA's.
O: 4.2569, A great summer beer that looks gorgeous in the glass, just lacks the power for a true IPAExpert69* trade marked.

Can. Dated 6/17/2017, poured into a tulip on 7/7/2017

L: Pale yellow coloration with a quickly dissipating thin head.

S: Dank hops on the nose with tinges of sweetness, nice smelling beer that implies a light drinking, high ABV beer.

T: Piney hops at the front of the sip followed by some nice citrus that manages not to be too sweet. Extremely refreshing, crisp, and juicy. Very light tasting with a warmth left behind that reminds you of its 8.2 percent ABV. The juiciness increases as you sip and the beer warms, but it never manages to be overbearing or overly sweet. Orange seems to be the most dominating citrus note, with hints of lemony zest. Very tasty.

F: Thin, resin is present but dissapates with the carbonation each sip. Very drinkable and light for an 8.2 percent beer.

O: A super tasty beer that is reminiscent of Sip of Sunshine, with a nice light and refreshing aspect that is welcome in the summer. I highly recommend this brew if you have the chance to get your hands on it. Wish it was readily available around NOVA / DC and I would definitely be all over it this summer.

Can thrown in as an extra in a trade a year or two ago. Dark gold with 1/2" white head that was below average retention, average amount and appearance of haze here, wasn't one of those bright like orange juice ones. Aroma was lacking the notes of mango and pineapple, was getting more grapefruit than anything, came off like they went all in on the bittering hops.

Taste made me look at the label again. Still had a bitterness like a late 90s dipa moreso than a "juicy" one of hazy dimensions, where my softness and juiciness at? Some grapefruit and pine notes dominate. I guess on the more positive side, I thought the alcohol would be lower than 8.2%. Unable to discern any dating system on this. I dunno, you look at the can, you read the notes, the commercial tug job just doesn't translate to the drinking experience. I was shocked to see this rated so high. Granted, I've had all of 16oz of this beer my whole life with no ability to gauge freshness, but that sounds like a brewery problem, not a consumer writing a review problem. The score will reflect the reality.
