From tasting notes 08/25/17, had on-tap at Round Table Clubhouse in Citrus Heights, CA

Appearance - Served up in a 16oz snifter, hazy and orange in color with a white, half finger width head sitting atop. Lacing is good with broken webbing, lines and spotting decorating the sides of the glass.

Smell - Equally juicy as it is dank. Whiffs of grapefruit, orange, pineapple, mango and pine.

Taste - Dank pine is prominent in the flavor, with lesser citrus and a fair amount of stonefruit pit nuttiness emerging mid-taste. Finish touches on juicy orange and lesser guava.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with fair carbonation. Slick, easy drinker with a slightly dry finish.

Overall - Decent brew, but a bit too dank for what I would think is the ideal hazy, NE-Style IPA.

A very good, northeast style, hazy IPA! Not as tropical/citrus-ey like some of the west coast iterations, but a smooth drinking IPA at 7 percent. This is good enough to crack my top ten!

Pours a hazy, light lemon yellow color with quickly dissipating white head leaving minimal lacing. Nose is grassy,piney hops and limey citrus. Taste follows with more citrus ,a bit of bitterness and a tart, citrusy acidic finish. Real tasty.

Can from 10/23/17 into a tulip glass.

L: Pours dirty bronze with 1 finger of low density white head with poor retention and left limited spotted lacing.

S: Super dank and earthy, hints of citrus.

T: Follows the nose, with more citrus prominence. Finishes with mild bitterness and astringency, both clear palate moderately quickly.

F: Easy drinking with decent body, carbonation is moderate, silky and creamy on the tongue.

O: It's more of a WC-NE hybrid than a true NEIPA. Juicy haze bros will be disappointed. More on the line of Cellarmaker and Track 7 hybrids. For my palate and preferences I really enjoyed it, but it's definitely not a juice bomb.

Out of Sacto and Device Brewing comes Curious Haze a 7% NE style IPA.

This beer pours a hazy, light yellow with a fine, thick head and a lacing that clings to the glass.

Smell is tropical and citrus fruits with a grassy/piney nose.

The bitterness doesn't wait time to set in, as it's very upfront, as the fruit falls in, finishing with a dank pine.

This drank a bit thin on the mouthfeel and reminds me more of a West Coast, NE style IPA.

L: Uniformly hazy & cloudy dirty yellow, small head, lots of lacing.

A: Grassy hop and very bright citrus fruit notes, mostly lemon & lime.

T: More fruitiness, a lot of tropical and citrus flavors going on here.

F: Smooth, but a bit light, thin, and low on carbonation. Some nice, easy bitterness.

O: Pretty solid all around hazy. Would have loved a couple more levels up on the carbonation. I'm impressed and now on the lookout for more from Device.
