When I first opened the can, the smell reminded me of Treehouse's Julius. In the glass, though, the nose changed to a "minty" smell for me, not really piney, but something unique. Definitely fresh and refreshing. After about 10 minutes in the glass, the creamsicle taste and smell came out. This one is definitely complicated, a potion that changes character in the glass, but always offers something interesting. Overall, a very interesting NEIPA!

16oz can dated 8/7/18 poured into a tulip
A: Hazy creamsicle color with a one-finger head
S: Wow, after just writing the appearance I'll be damned if this doesn't smell like a creamsicle too. Orange, a bit of vanilla, some malt/tropical fruit/pine
T: Much drier than the nose; orange/dried orange peel, malt, pine, just a touch of dank
M: Medium-bodied, dry, bitter
O: The nose took my by surprise. The flavors differ but overall a well-made enjoyable NEIPA

Thanks goes out to larryi86 for this brew.

16 oz. Can
Canned On: 060818
ABV: 8%

My first from this brewery.

Poured into a Trillium glass a pretty nice cloudy yellow color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy two-finger off-white head, which leaves some pretty nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with a pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, mango, peach, apricot), slight diesel like. The taste is hoppy, malty, with a pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, mango, peach, apricot), slight diesel like, Medium body, ABV is hidden very well, with a nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, a pretty tasty brew. Glad to have gotten a chance to try it. Orange Julius! Addictive! Milkshake!. Thanks Larry!

L - 2-finger white head atop a murky orange body.

S - dank orange, pine, some candy.

T - orange and grapefruit. Bread. Biscuit. Pine. Some dankness. Moderate-low bitterness. Low sweetness. Low booziness.

F - Medium body and carb.

O - It’s complicated being a NEIPA. This one is decent, though, but doesn’t stand out.

this is quickly turning into one of my favorite breweries. Quality beer after quality beer. This one is no different. has a great NE IPA smell with the strong somewhat piney taste of a VT beer. Definently can tell this is an 8% but not in a negative way. This is a good IPA. Don't pass on an opportunity to buy this one.
