16oz bottle. Poured out a clear, golden orange color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled of orange pineapple and caramel. Sweet tropical citrus and a bitter bite. Subtle caramel sweetness.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on October 10, 2018. A New England style India Pale Ale focusing on the tropical fruit flavors and aromas of hops, rather than bitterness. Decent.

Pours a muddy orange color with a foamy white head that disappears quickly. No discernable aroma. Tastes of citrus with a hint of hoppy bitterness. Good mouth feel.

Came in a standard pint glass an auburn color with a half slight off white head atop.A deeply fruity nose with peach and tangerine standing out most,light caramel malts came thru as it warmed as well.Tangerine and mango sweet fruity hop notes stand out most on the palate with a slight drying earthy tones come thru in the finish keeping it from getting too sweet.A decent rendition of the 'juicy' N.E. style IPA.

Burnt orange color with a significant light tan head. The nose is heavy sweet citrus hops, no malt to speak of.

The taste has a bit of juiciness, but the mouthfeel is pretty thin, so it fades quickly. Not terrible, but not something I’d seek out, either.

NE IPA - 6.3% abv

L - 2-finger offwhite head atop a murky, dirty orange body.

S - dank hops, a little citrus.

T - mildly dank but well balanced by some bready malt and other earthy hops. Citrus comes through more on the taste. Only mildly bitter, not sweet or boozy.

F - medium body and carb.

O - A really well balanced brew.

16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 11/18/2017. Pours lightly hazy deep golden amber color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of tangerine, apricot, peach, pear, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, berry, white grape, lemon zest, orange peel, light pepper/pine, cracker, biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/tropical/citrus/earthy hops and moderate pale malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of big tangerine, apricot, peach, pear, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, berry, white grape, lemon zest, orange peel, light pepper, pine, cracker, biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, apricot, peach, pear, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, berry, white grape, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, pepper, pine, cracker, biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/tropical/citrus/earthy hops and moderate pale malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and no lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, bready/grainy/sticky, and lightly resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6.3%. Overall this is a very good IPA. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/citrus/tropical/earthy hops and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the modestly bitter/resinous/drying finish. Drinks more like a regular IPA than the NEIPA that was advertised. No haze, bitterness is fairly moderate. Very juicy and fairly dank hop complexity, with a nice solid bready malt backbone. A very enjoyable offering otherwise.

Had a pint at Coaches in Stevensville, Michigan. Quite delicious and fresh. Will definitely try this New England style IPA again. Tasted very similar to M43 but without the cloudiness.
