look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Look: It pours cloudy pale yellow with a white head. Head retention is very good.

Smell: The aroma is very strong with grapefruit. There are backgrounds notes of citrus and peppery spice and a slight bit of graininess.

Taste: The flavors are strong with grapefruit, floral, spices, and pepper. There are low levels of grain and pine.

FeelL It has a medium-full body with bread in the aftertaste. Bitterness is medium high, but it is not harsh. There is even a slight bit of alcohol warming.

Overall: this NEIPA is strong with aromas and flavors yet it is easy drinking enough that three or four would go down just right.

16 oz can. Canned on 9-27-18. Poured into Goose Island Nonic pint.

Really light bodied, very attractive, like a hazy pulpy pineapple juice. The head formed is a lot like a milkshake-like froth, 1 finger tall. I'm liking this a lot.

Really juicy aromas of pineapple, mango, orange, and grapefruit.

Flavor leans very strongly on white grapefruit juice, with a peppery presence and some pineapple. Very slight orange rind.

Feel is juicy, acidic, slightly creamy, firmly in the medium body arena. Nice carbonation level. No resins. Mild dryness and tartness on the finish.

Overall, a very enjoyable NE IPA. If you're into white grapefruit, you're gonna dig this one.

Got in a BIF from Dragginballs76. 16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 9/27/2018. Pours opaquely hazy golden yellow/green color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lemon, lime, tangerine, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, mango, melon, raspberry, currant, red grape/wine, citrus peel/zest, light peppercorn, pine, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big lemon, lime, tangerine, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, mango, melon, raspberry, currant, red grape/wine, citrus peel/zest, light peppercorn, pine, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of lemon, lime, tangerine, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, mango, melon, raspberry, currant, red grape/wine, citrus peel/rind, peppercorn, pine, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and no lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/grainy, fairly sticky, and lightly resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. No warming alcohol for 6.2%. Overall this is an excellent NEIPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the modestly bitter/resinous/dying finish, not aggressive. Unique hop profile from the Enigma in particular, with the berry/wine notes. Very juicy, vibrant, dank, and earthy balanced hop complexity; great wheat/oat/malt backbone, with minimal residual sweetness from lingering dryness. A very enjoyable offering, and well made style example; but not as soft as expected.

16 ounce can, dated 27sept18. Poured into a tulip. Pours a soft lemon yellow, faint orange. Little head to speak of even after somewhat aggressive pour. Somehow, just tiny bits of lace. The nose is muted oj, grapefruit, lemon candy, some sort of fruit juice/punch and melon.
Taste is lemon, pineapple, grass, a bit of light biscuit malts.
Light, little carbonation, creamy body and sweet finish.
I expected more from this collab but admittedly they showcase some hops that I don’t have a lot of experience with. Good beer, just not mind blowing.

Can stamped 27SEP2018

Foggy pale orange color with a low creamy head that sticks in a bubbly ring. Smooth tropical dankness in the nose...pineapple, mango slices, OJ, and apricot. Soft hoppy flavors of peaches, mango, melon, tangerine, passion fruit, and grass. Creamy smooth medium body, fluffy, and pretty dry into the finish. Nicely done...

Pale gold and murky beer. Large band of lacing left behind by the white and light head. The aroma is filled with citrus and tropical fruits with grapefruit, orange, mango and papaya as the predominant scents. Lightly sweet and creamy beer with a ton of papaya, mango, orange and grapefruit with a nice piney/pithy bitterness. Very tasty beer.

A: Pours a murky milky golden straw yellow in color with moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and moderate pale golden yellow + bright lemon yellow colored highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense sudsy foamy bright white head that slowly reduces to a large patch of slightly mottled thin film covering the entire surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Slightly stronger than moderate aromas of juicy tropical/papaya, tropical/lychee, tropical/mango, and citrus/orange hops over the top of light to moderate aromas of biscuit + oat + grainy + honey malts with a light amount of honey sweetness.

T: Upfront there are slightly heavier than light flavors of biscuit + grainy + oat + honey malts with a light amount of honey sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of juicy tropical/papaya, tropical/lychee, tropical/mango, and citrus/orange hops which contribute a minimal amount of bitterness which fades away quickly leaving lingering papaya + lychee hop flavors.

M: Slightly lighter than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Initially slightly crisp with a lightly soft/fluffy mid-body with a hint of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol. Very enjoyable with a new/different juicy fruity hop flavor than I have been tasting in a lot of other NEIPAs. Definitely would grab another couple of these to enjoy.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours cloudy with a goldenstraw hue, the head rising to one finger; shards and dots of lacing

Smell: Asian Pear, lychee and papaya

Taste: The Asian Pear flavor powers the profile, with a hint of brown sugar sweetness; lychee and papaya add a tropical element to the mid-palate; low bitterness and a somewhat dry finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: In a world where each NE IPA appears to compete with juicy tropical fruit flavors, along comes this collaboration that brings an entirely different fruit palate; it took me a while to wrap my head around it but this is quite enjoyable once you see the direction to which it is heading
