Pours an opaque orange with a finger of white foam that leaves a ring of foam for a long while. Aroma is tangerine, papaya, mango, orange with a sticky backend with notes of herbal and floral hops. Intriguing balance. Flavor profile is papaya, mango, guava, melon and orange with stinging sticky resin hops coming on at the finish. Mouth feel is medium with an effervescence that jumps out at the tongue, creating a little harshness. Overall, intriguing balance here with it opening sugary and sweet and then taking a hard 70 (acute angle) right at the finish into sticky.

Draft.

Poured from a tallboy can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Hazed juice bomb pour. Thick fluffy white head leaves great lacing.

S: Tropical fruits and citrus. Typical Singlecut brew.

T.F: Just like it smells. Light grain bill... big juicy tropical fruits and citrusy hops. Grapefruit and pineapple... lighter stone fruit and mango. Sticky on the tongue... medium bodied and well carbonated. Lingering fruit and floral notes at the finish.

O: A delicious NEIPA. Hard to distinguish from their other IPA's but that's not really a criticism. Delicious brew.

Poured from the can into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Creamy filling and bright white four finger tall head, with a thick island capped top right off the pour. Body color is standard opaque, a bit dull but not totally. Touches a little dark lemon color, and almost light brown.

Excellent hop aromatics on the nose. Wonderful tropical senses of papaya and a sport of spicy to herbal mango notes. Hits with a good aromatic sense of perfume, rich and long lasting. Simple neutral malt and yeast presence, letting the hops just shine.

Palate continues to bring the goods. Wonderful creamy sensing malt body, with an excellent rich texture. Hop angle allows a mix of peppered spice, green herbs and exotic tropical notes with dialed down sweetness. Excellent finishing bitterness on the swallow, giving to minty sweetness and pulling much tropical fruit as well.

Clocking in below 7% abv, this is really packing a great punch in the flavor department. Very impressive IPA.
