Style: New England IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.10%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
New to our core lineup, Life in the Clouds is our flagship New England style IPA. After experimenting with the Collective Project HAZY IPA we dialed in the Simcoe and Mosaic hops and malt balance to optimize this juicy IPA’s pleasantly fruit forward (think citrus and melon) taste and aroma. In keeping with the nouveau NEIPA tradition, Life in the Clouds is an unfiltered beer, neither overly-sweet nor bitter, with a pillowy mouth feel. Crack one, pour it in a glass, take a whiff, hold it up the the light and take a sip! Don’t you agree?

16 oz can poured into pint glass.
Yellow-straw color, hazy with some glow, a little debris, creamy long lasting white head.
Smells of pineapple and grapefruit.
Tastes of pineapple pink grapefruit lemon, honeydew, a little vegetal/dank/rotten melon, a little sour. Balanced clean, mildly bitter finish.
Medium body, good mouth feel, soft.
Overall, a quintessential NEIPA, similar to some of the Alchemist and the Lord Hobo offerings. This one here perhpas a bit more on the lemon, pink grapefruit end of the tropical taste spectrum.

From a can from a new friend as Six Ten Brewery in Tampa. He called it a northern IPA, which means it's juicy and light at the same time. The hops is mostly on the back end. Florida has a few similar beers.

Smooth and balanced, leaning slightly to bitter. Nice moderate haze. Not quite enough flavor to make it truly interesting, but very drinkable.

If you want a neipa that is not a fruit bomb, this one is for you. Thought it did really well incorporating almost a pale ale haziness to the style. Good contrasting wet and dry feels. Hops are juicy but finish airy, key to both smell and taste. Tropical fruit lead over citrus, but both very present. Easy drinking and fun.
