Style: New England IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

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.

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.

A: The beer is hazy yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a two finger high frothy bright white head that died down, leaving a short head covering the surface and lots of lacing around the edges of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of citrus and tropical fruit hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of orange citrus along with a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and slightly crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This can definitely be classified as an East Coast IPA as the beer is "juicy" and isn't overly bitter.

Serving type: can

Pours light hazy, gold. Thick, tall, wet, Whitehead fades slowly to a rocky head and light lacing.

Smells tropical, citrus and light pine.

Tastes orange, citrus peel, light bready malt, pineapple and melon. Finish is dry with a citrus peel linger. Medium body and creamy medium carbonation.

Had it on tap at the Harlem Tavern, NYC. Being a fan of Radiant Pig's Junior IPA, I chose it for both this reason and the unique name.
Save the Robots pours a somewhat New England style golden straw hazy color with a frothy film of head that retains throughout.
The aromas are fruity and consisting of citruses and tropical fruit as is typical for an IPA. Most notable are the grapefruit, orange peel, mango, pineapple and a lemon like twang.
The hops profile tends to dominate the flavor yet in an understated way. There is a sweet and sour interplay going on, particularly between the pineapple and lemon finish. Mild to moderate pine add a gentle and accessible prickle to the mouthfeel. Beyond the hops flavor, there is a hint of caramel malt, however, the feel and flavor are in some ways mineral water clean. The palate is dry overall while the body is medium. The gentle carbonation makes the texture smooth.
This is a more mellow and easily drinkable IPA that feels lighter than its ABV. Sessionable yet with a little more body and flavor than a so called session IPA.
