Very Good
Lil' JuicyLil' Juicy
Notes: An unfiltered, double dry-hopped New England IPA that uses generous amounts of galaxy, citra and azacca hops. The result is a “crushable” IPA with notes of tropical juicy fruits, orange, lemon-lime and florals.

The first beer I get to try from Two Roads Brewing. I am getting behind NEIPA they are fastly becoming a favorite of mine. The can art is bold and bright, making a loud statement. This beer is the younger one to Two Juicy. The head of the beer is creamy and airy. The head of the beer has fair retention. The beer is a pale straw color with golden hues. The clarity of the beer is hazy. This beer is a typical NEIPA. I am sad to see the poor head retention. If this is beer is crafted well, it is a work of art.

The aromas in the beer are pineapple, orange, mangos, melons, a touch of herbal, cut grass, lightly toasted malts, bready, and a hint of lemons.

The flavors of the beer are heavy pineapple, oranges, passions fruit, melons, grass, lightly toasted malts, bready, a subtle hint of lemon, wheat, and herbal.

The mouthfeel of the beer is watery and astringent.

The body of the beer is a medium, high carbonation, and a medium finish.

I am disappointed in this in this beer. The strong malty back like a crooked disintegrated back that needs medical attention. The nose on this beer is mouthwatering. Sadly, the tasted does not match it.

Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a very cloudy yellow color with a 1 inch head, Smell is of tropical fruits. Taste is pineapple, some oranges, surprisingly little bitterness. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall it's a decent beer, but kind of lacking any oomph.

This offering came from the tap, and was actually my significant other's that I stole from. This beer has a pleasant orange/citrus aroma and coloring. Amazingly, the taste matched the visual and aromatic characteristics. This was close to drinking orange juice, and I tasted little to no alcohol.

I'll be looking this one on the shelf!

I am a fan of Two Juicy and happy to try a fresh sessionable NEIPA. Canned in February and drinking the 4 pack in March. Very light yellow hazy beer. I find it to be very refreshing and is an easy session beer. Dry but not bitter. I taste grapefruit and get a nice dry mouthfeel. I am a fan - hope for some more fresh cans this summer. Would be great on a hot day.

A: The beer is very hazy pale light yellow in color. It poured with a quarter finger high bright white head that quickly settled down, but left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and some lacing running down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of lychee are present in the nose along with hints of gooseberries.
T: The taste follows the smell, having flavors of lychee along with notes of gooseberries and hints of limes. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and quite juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and has a lot of fruity aromas and flavors. I liked how it exhibited lychee instead of citrus that you normally see in these types of IPAs.

This is an awesome IPA for 8% ABV, nevermind 5.2%! Incrediblebly juicy, citrusy, and refreshing bitter bite at the end makes this a top notch IPA to seek out. The fact it is a sessionable IPA only adds to its desirability. Seek this beer out!

look: 4.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 2

Opaque light yellow, almost straw. Very pale and completely opaque. Topped by a small white head. Good retention and some streaky lacing.
The aroma is almost nonexistent. A bit of pineapple and orange, but there's almost nothing there. Even a bit of vomit on the back end. Yikes.
Fuck me. Is this a bad can? A touch of peach and pineapple, and then vinegary sourness, vomit, chalk, and dust. This must be bad. I don't know what's going on here, but this fails.
Slightly creamy mouthfeel, lightly carbonated.
Either this pack is bad, or this beer is bad. Either way, this beer is awful and not recommended.

16 oz can into IPA glass. Dated 1/14/19.
Look is very nice cloudy golden yellow. Smell is light citrus tropical fruit. Taste follows nose and sweet tropical fruit. Feel is fairly light and smooth. Overall very easy drink that doesn't overpower.

16oz can. Pours a turbid milky yellow color with an inch of head. Lots of lacing. The aroma is citrus and tropical fruits. Orange, tangerine, mango, pineapple and pink grapefruit. The taste is a bit more subdued than the aroma. Orange juice, pineapple, lemon and some bread. Citrus finish. Medium body with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. Good enough to buy once in a while but nothing special.
