This is good beer. It tastes great. I like it a lot. It's local so that's neat. I like it very much. I would drink this at times. I enjoy the flavors. Thanks.

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.

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...

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

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.

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)

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.

Pours from the can into an imperial pint glass a hazy light lemon yellow with an ever so slight orange tinge to the body,a thinner frothy white head atop.Big pineapple stands out in the nose along with mango,an underlying green herbal note is detected as well.Flavors start out with hefty tropical fruits with a gain pineapple coming thru most but then a drying note keeps it from getting overly sugary sweet and sticky like many of the NE style.It is sweet and fruity but it has a complexity to it that I like,not one dimensional in it's sweet fruitiness... not too much anyways.

A solid NE IPA, very similar to Hooker's #No Filter IPA, with a bit more lemon citrus flavor and a bit more hop bite. A beer with surprisingly mild bitterness from Two Roads...who'd a thunk it.

In a snifter the beer was a hazy gold color. There was a small white head that left a bit of lace.
Mostly citrus aroma. Some pine. Nice sweet malt.
Grapefruit and tangerine taste. A little bit of pine resin. Caramel.
Medium-bodied.
Even though it's 8% ABV it drank like a session beer.

16 oz can, pkg 10/11/17. Pours very hazy yellow gold with a big frothy white head that retains well and laces the glass some.

The aroma is some wheat malts and lots of tropical fruit with some piney hops.

The flavor is sweet cracker malts with lots of tropical fruit and a mild grassy bitter finish with a touch of onion. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation and is a bit watery.

Overall, a decent NE IPA.

Tall can 06APR17 on the bottom

Typical NE IPA presentation...lasting off white head, leaves osme nice looking low sheeting.

Lemony fruit juicy nose..fresh and pungent

More of the same on the palate...this is a fruit juicy fresh delight...more lemon, oranges, ripe pineapple...yum

Nice take on the style by a brewery that has been pumping out tons of this kinda stuff for other breweries for the past few years...go get some and enjoy

From a growler from the brewery. Pours hazy, orange-copper in color with 1/2 inch head. Taste is big tangerine, mango, orange pulp and light grapefruit. Orange juice comes out more as the beer warms. Slightly bitter, juicy--but not overly so with a dry backbone. Very tasty and has the feel of a New England IPA. This may be my favorite Connecticut brew. Reminds me a bit of Tree House's Alter Ego with more orange juice. I will get this again.

16 oz. Can. Canned on June 12th and opened on June 20th. Thats fresh!

Love the unfiltered haze and bright golden glow of the NEIPA. Yellow golden color. High, soft foam. Settles down pretty quick. Plenty of coverage left over.

The aroma is pretty unique, perhaps a bit less citrus and piney than most of it's kind. This one has more light tropical aroma's, mainly mellons and lemmon. Mild citrus and some wet-earthy tones with some spice rack effects. A very gentle, light and sweet malt rounds it out.

The hop dominated flavor is very much like the aroma, more of a light mellon, starfruit and light citrus taste. A zippy, light to medium mouthfeel is also very bright and crisp. Juicy for sure! The feel and hop combo certainly gives off a wonderful juicy effect. The hops dont exactly have a big complexity, a bit more straight forward flavor, not multiple layers like Green, Heady Topper and SIP have. Interesting for sure, with the correct balance as well. The most interesting aspect of the hop complexity is a very nice, earthy and herbal layer which is more old world, than it is contemporary. I dig that, and it really finishes leaving you with that dry, earthy and herbal flavor after the mikd tropical and mellons fade. The malt is as gentle and light as you can imagine. But the malt is very effective, allowing the hops to come through in full effect, creating a light, snappy and juicy body with only a mild sweetness.

Perhaps not as complex as some of it's New England style IPA counterparts, but highly enjoyable on it's merit.
