BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Radiant Pig Craft Beers
New York, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
This is the biggest, juiciest IPA we’ve ever made. This unfiltered gem has a slight haze with huge tropical and citrus flavors, but is surprisingly smooth for such an aggressive amount of American and Aussie hops. As East Coast IPAs continue to evolve we added our own take, to make sure the party just don't stop.

This beer is perfect!! I never give all 5's, but Radiant Pig deserves it for this masterpiece. Let's compare it to a Heady Topper. This beautiful, pale, blonde East Coast IPA has the same SRM as a Heady Topper. It feels like you're drinking little delicious hop angels that are prancing around and galavanting on your tongue. Sooooooo Juicy!! It tastes like Heady Topper (no bull), it smells like Heady Topper (no bull), and what I like about it more than Heady Topper, it comes in at 7% alcohol rather than 8%, so you could drink more without getting as plastered off of one beer. Kudos to Radiant Pig and Save The Robots. I can't wait to try more of your varieties. Love that it is emphasized as an East Coast IPA too, tell the pretentious West Coasters to stick their Dark & Piney's somewhere graphic :^)

One of the best beers that I've had. Smell is a sold 5 out of 5. Nice tropical fruit / citrus flavor.

I'm not sure why this beer doesn't have higher ratings because it's an excellent juicy dank bomb of flavor. It's a great take on the NE IPA with smooth juicy hop flavor with a nice earthy lingering. I feel like if this beer had a Tree House label on it people would be all over this in seconds. Radiant Pig has made a fantastic brew here. Make more. Please.

Poured from a 16oz can into a pint glass

Appearance: Wow.. haven't seen an IPA look this light in a while. Transparent yellowish gold in color, with a small white head. Nice head retention, showing some film around the inside of the glass. Steady stream of bubbles flows up the glass as well.

Smell: Big citrusy notes engulf you as you put your nose in this one. Very clean smelling. I am getting some resinous pine aromas, some grapefruit and lemon. Really big profile here, smells heavenly.

Taste: Nice west coast hop flavor here. Big citrus notes, orange, pine, grapefruit, mango, The taste is clean and not over done at all. Finishes with a subtle amount of malt tinge, which is just enough to balance it off. Really big flavors here.

Mouthfeel: Such a light tasting beer with such a huge hop profile. Bitterness is very low and pleasing, which makes this a breeze to quaff. Mouthfeel is a tad resinous, leaving a little slickness behind on the tongue. Very nice.

Drinkability: Very impressed with this offering. The appearance along looks almost as light as a pilsner, until you smell and sip this one and realize you have a big, citrusy IPA. Love how well balanced the mouthfeel is, it's a refreshing IPA that is easy to put away. Impressive offering I would seek out again.

Tall can, no dating info to be had

Typical NE style IPA look to this one...clouded, medium orangy amber, moderate light khaki head, lasting nicely and then leaving high quality looking sheeting and lace splattered all over the glass

Tropical sniff

Super fresh, tasty and highly enjoyable cloudy, juicy, tropical IPA...go get some if you see it available by you

Pours a slightly cloudy medium golden color with a one inch white heat that left lots of lacing down the glass. Smells and tastes of tropical and citrus fruits, a mild malt presence and has some floral notes. Smooth, clean, crisp and refreshing. Mild bitterness, well carbonated and light bodied.

Pale gold with a light unfiltered haze and a a big-as-ya-want-it head of white; lotsa lace trails linger... Aromas both citrus and tropical with a floral accent are followed with a juicy, moderately bitter splash of flavors... Mild honey-like sweetness on pale malt with soft, ripe fruit impressions and a flowery bouquet... Soft, smooth, and light, with ample carbonation and a great finish. Crafted in NY, brewed in Boston, featuring unspecified American and Australian hops...

Canned 9/23/17

Pours a huge frothy 2.5 finger head that fades at a med pace, a little sticky lacing, very murky golden blond color

Nose juicy tropical citrus, a bit of tangerine, mango sorbet, creamy orange cream, creamy wheat, almost lemony or maybe meyer lemon, pineapple, a bit floral,

Taste brings more citrus, a bit of grapefruit, plenty of tangerine, some pith, tropical pineapple and a bit of mango skin, some grape skin, a bit musty, juicy fruit, bitter spicy hops as well, a bit grassy, mild creamy wheat and toasted base malt. Finishes drier a bit more cracked wheat and yeast, very spicy hop and fair bitterness

Mouth is med bod, a bit soft and creamy, fluffy, decent carb

Overall not bad, some NEIPA notes, some east coast and west coast bitterness as well, hops kick up a bit too much on the back end for my tastes but that's prob what they were going for, and the only thing I'm actually not a fan of is the yeast flavor on the back end. Otherwise enjoyable.
