3.54/5  rDev -17.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours orange, completely opaque with a thin off-white head that dissipates steadily leaving no lacing or residual head. Lots of little yeast floaters and debris. This was just floating in the beer, I did not pour the bottom can sediment in the glass.

Smell has notes of citrus, peach and mango, and grass - its rather muddled, no one aroma really pops.

Taste has notes of citrus, mango, pineapple, and peach. There is some bitterness on the back end that is slightly acidic - takes on that pineapple flavors with some pine mixed in there. Definitely some rind flavors with a strong sugary sweetness - almost like juicy fruit juice coming through. Overall its kind of muddled and the lingering bitterness is a bit too much to my taste. Dial back the bitterness and let some of those flavors pop and this would improve greatly.

Feel is medium bodied, smooth and coating. The sugary sweetness definitely translates into the feel. Mild to medium carbonation. Dry finish that I like, but is probably a bit too dry for the NE style.

Overall this is a solid beer - not worth the price tag, but with some tweaks it could certainly be improved.

A pint can dated 04/20/17 purchased at the brewery release on 04/21 poured in a 18th Street tulip.

Look- Pours a thin and cloudy pale orange color leaving a few centimeters of creamy off white foam. It settles rather quickly to a thin layer leaving a little lacing behind.

Smell- Orange zest, pineapple, mango, guava and passionfruit. A slight hint of malt emerges through the tropical juices.

Taste- Orange/pineapple/grapefruit juice and a touch of passionfruit. Some spice and floral notes pop in the finish along with a bit of fresh rubber and fusel alcohol.

Feel- Very light, slick and creamy with a bitter dry finish.

Overall- I was an early fan of 18th and practically live at Transient these days so I was ecstatic to try this collaboration. No disappointment here! It's a well crafted aromatic and juicy interpretation of the style. Some may be put off by the $20/4 pack pints, but that's the market price for many of this style these days. I personally consider it money well spent and hoping Transient releases it as well.

Appearance - The beer poured a straw yellow color with a fluffy white head.

Smell - Lemon and hops were noted in the nose.

Taste - This is a lemon drop bomb. The citrus is rich and crisp. Malt was invisible in the presence of the hops.

Mouthfeel - The carbonation made this beer seem extra fresh.

Overall - In a match up with their collaborator's version, 18th Street wins.

Canned 4/20/17; drank 4/26/17 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque orange appearance.

A violent pour yielded a nice, noisy off-white head; frothy lace.

Melon & orange citrus notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Melon & mild apple flavors up front; grapefruit bite & faint pine notes on the finish. No booze heat.

I liked this better the 2nd time around, but it's still a bit too biting & dry for my NE IPA preference. Good.

Pours a hazy golden orange color with over a finger of fluffy white head.

Aroma pops of peach, nectarine, mango, pineapple, tangerine, passionfruit, and cantaloupe...all very juicy and ripe. A slight green dankness emerges as it warms. Soft, light doughy malt and candied sweetness come through to balance everything. Slight bubblegum coming from the yeast strain. Quite the juice bomb.

Taste follows the juicy theme of the aroma nicely. Taste explodes with juicy peach, passionfruit, pineapple, and orange; supported by a juicy, slight bubblegum-like character from the yeast, a light doughy malt, and candied sweetness. Lesser notes of mango, cantaloupe, kiwi, and dankness come through as well. Not much bitterness at all besides a very light orange pith. Slightly dry on the finish, but stays juicy throughout. Slight boozey twinge right on the finish.

Medium body. Smooth, creamy, and soft mouthfeel. Oily and a little sticky.

This is a very impressive attempt at the NE style. Hits all the marks. Definitely more reminiscent of Transient than 18th. Probably my favorite hoppy offering by 18th Street now. Damn well done.

Maybe a little drier than juicy, but the aftertaste is more grapefruit than bitter hop. Looks like fresh-squeezed juice.
