Poured from a 16oz can into a Speiglau IPA glass.

Look is a slightly hazy yellow with a thin white head.

Aroma is astrigent lemon pine.

Taste matches the aroma with a little hard candy malt to balance it out.

Medium-gold body, light haze, coupla fingers of white head... Real nice, "classic" IPA - no gimmickry or special marketing (other than really cool label art?) - features Galaxy, Mosaic, Citra, Centennial, Chinook, and Simcoe hops, 2 Row Pale ale, flaked wheat, Crystal, and Carafoam malts... Moderate but expressive bitterness, very little sweetness, lots of grain and grass and pine with suggestions of citrus fruits like grapefruit and lime... Aromatic, clean, lean, and fresh-tasting, with a great finish... 8/22/18 canning...

16oz. can into Night Shift stemware.

Pours like a proper IPA should. Nose is mango, citrus, papay and a dank hop presence that's at the same time juicy, pulpy and earthy. Love it. Super aromatic. Beer opens citrus, pine, peach and mango. Doesn't look like a NE IPA but tastes like one. There's a mellow, grassy hop bitterness that lingers in the back that gets drier and drier as the beer sits on the palate. Finishes with a waxy hop bitterness along with sweet tropical fruit. Great balance. Body is light with moderate carbonation. Prickly on the palate and goes down dry and sticky. Long lingering dry aftertaste. Really drinkable.

My first review for Collective Arts and it certainly won't be my last. This one definitely has the juicy IPA characteristics but its nicely balanced out by an even, mellow hop presence. Really good.

Please know that I live in a Canadian Province where our new Premier has delivered on one of his election promises namely he lowered the minimum legal price of beer to $1.00 (about 75 cents American). Only two breweries are now producing this beer (crap vs craft?). He claims that prior to his election wherever he went people were demanding "a dollar a beer". Who were these idiots.
In the real world is the Ransack the Universe which is an excellent, quality craft beer. To me this is a perfect brew which on my taste buds gives a grapefruit taste. The color is a slightly cloudy gold. The head of about one finger leaves a lovely lace on the glass. It is a "strong" IPA of 6.8% which makes me feel better about its slightly above average craft beer cost.
I highly recommend.

On tap at Capital Theatre in Arlington, MA. Great surprise! Ice cream too, maybe next time. Watched BlackkKlansman. NEIPA smell. Not amazing taste.

Had it after a pint of Life in the Clouds from the same brewery. Good start. Heavy but smooth, straight to the point flavor: tropical notes, apricot and papaya with bitter finish. Look is relatively clear, moderate head. Feels like there a bit of vodka in it.

Poured from a can picked up at the BC Liquor Store, Kingsgate Mall.

Lightly hazy and golden.
Pleasant, fruity aroma. More tropical and mango than citrus.
Somewhat fruity, grassy, bitter but not extremely so. Finishes boozier than the hazy IPAs I've been drinking lately.

Poured from can

Dark golden color, not hazy, but fairly opaque. Head that lingers for awhile.
I really am not getting much in the way of smell. Just a little general fruit.
Pineapple, green apple, tropical fruits dominate the palate, with a refreshing bitter pine on the end.
Medium, kind of creamy mouthfeel and light carbonation.
A refreshing change from hazy IPAs - balanced amount of hops with enough tropical fruits to make it interesting.

L - 2-finger yellowish head atop a translucent orange body.

S - pine, orange, dank, cotton candy.

T - grapefruit rind and hard candies. Some pine, a little dank. Moderate bitterness, low sweetness, low booziness.

F - medium body and carb.

O - leans more towards a traditional ipa, but very well executed.
