Can stamped "122119."
This was poured into a becher pint glass (normally, most NEIPA's I pour into tulips); let's call this "for science."
The appearance was a nice opaque yellow cloudy color with a thin sheet of white foamy head. Once dissipated, lots of lace roamed all around in a spotty smackling all around.
The aroma had some clean citrusy hops playing with some grassy smooth hops. Subtle piney-ness strolling in underneath. Even further underneath are some floral hops and clean biscuity malts.
The flavor leaned in on the citrusy hop portions, subtle sweet, shy pith-like bitterness and clean malts. Nice aftertaste of citrusy hop bitterness, some piney-ness and a touch of grassiness.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sipping quality about it. Carbonation felt good like a true New England styled IPA. Finishes semi-bitter but with a substantial smoothness with a subtle stickiness.
Overall, I'd say this was a nicely done New England styled IPA well worthy of coming back to.

A: Pours a super hazy whitish yellow color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap that leaves good lacing

S: Citrus and tropical fruit up front along with a light bready maltiness to back things up. Some floral hop notes in there as well

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the citrus and tropical hop notes and then picks up some light floral notes and bready malt. Light bitterness. Finishes with lingering tropical notes

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A very good IPA that implements the NZ hops well. Very easy to drink. Just as flavorful as the DIPA version (Sublimated Dreams) with a little less abv. Definitely worth checking out
