Pours very smooth, a hazy golden orange with soft soapy head.

Smell is juicy with notes of oranges, grapefruit, mango and nectarines.

Taste is juicy and a bit sweet. Notes of oranges, grapefruit, mango and melon, with a slight fruity tartness. Soft bitterness and a hint of booze on the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium, soft and pillowy, well carbonated.

Overall, a very nice IPA, well balanced but potent.

A: The beer is very hazy to cloudy whitish yellow in color. It poured with a half finger high white head that quickly settled down, leaving a large patch of bubbles on the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of grapefruit are present in the nose along with notes of pine.
T: The taste follows the smell and has a bit stronger flavors of pine, the latter of which linger through the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found this beer to have an interesting contrast between the citrusy and piney hops.

Serving type: can

Pours a matter light orange color. Opaque and quite thick in appearance. Thin weak white head dissipates leaving no residual head behind. As the beer settles a thick layer of sludge forms in the bottom of the glass. Its off-putting how much sludge is in this beer.

Aroma is a bright bouquet of peach, mango, light piney notes and some pineapple.

Taste follows the nose with bright fruity notes up front - peach, mango and pineapple. A light piney bitterness is noted on the back end. Nice balance between the sweeter fruity aspects and the piney bitterness.

Feel is full bodied with moderate gentle carbonation. Definitely as thick as it appears.

Overall a really enjoyable NEDIPA. A bit much on the sludge and mouthfeel, but the flavor profile was quite nice.

16oz can from Tavour. hazy, pale golden pour, small bubbly head. Aroma is fruity, citrus and tropical. Taste continues the juicy, fruity assault, mix of tropical and citrus with a light tang. Nice!

Passes the first test when I get a nice whiff of hops as soon as the can is cracked. Not as tropical as I expected and more old school citrus and piney with a touch of dankness. Taste does add some pineapple and jackfruit. Pretty damn solid beer all round honestly. There is some spice on the nose and tongue similar to black pepper that makes this interesting although I can't quite decide if it fits. Mouthfeel is a bit sharp. Oddly enough, I liked the single can I drank at 6 weeks old better than I liked the 3 cans I had at 2 weeks old. This would be amazing with Indian food. Probably the most annoying thing about this beer is the font on the can which makes it impossible to read what the hell this beer is. Took forever to decipher. If they took all the time wasted on can art and spent more time on the beer, they could be top notch.
