A - Hazy with layers of white lacey head.

T - Layers of tropical fruits with a subtle hop backbone.

O - Really solid offering from Big lake. They crush the NE IPA style and this one didn't disappoint.

First hazy New England IPA out of a 16 oz can into a stemless wine glass. Smell brought big boys of mango and citrus, it was very inviting. Wish the flavor brought note mango but it re appears in the aftertaste. Still a very flavorful grapefruit, mango esque taste. Color was a beautiful golden hazy ale with a couple fingers of head. Quality brew overall.

16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 7/29/2019. Pours very hazy/cloudy deep golden amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big juicy, lightly tart/tangy mangoes, fruit skin, tangerine, red grapefruit, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, honeydew melon, blueberry, gooseberry, citrus peel/zest, peppercorn, pine, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, light honey/biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of mangoes, citrus/fruity/tropical/light earthy hops, and bready malt notes; with big strength. Taste of big juicy, lightly tart/tangy mangoes, fruit skin, tangerine, red grapefruit, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, honeydew melon, blueberry, gooseberry, citrus peel/zest, peppercorn, pine, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, light honey/biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Light pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, grassy, peppery bitterness; and fruit tang/tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of lightly tart/tangy mangoes, fruit skin, tangerine, red grapefruit, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, honeydew melon, blueberry, gooseberry, citrus peel/zest, peppercorn, pine, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, light honey/biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of mangoes, citrus/fruity/tropical/light earthy hops, and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness and tart/tangy fruit balance; with no astringent hop/fruit flavors after the finish. A bit crisp finishing. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness, tart/tangy fruit, and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/grainy, fairly sticky, and lightly acidic/tangy/resinous/rindy mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.5%. Overall this is an excellent fruited NEIPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of mangoes, citrus/fruity/tropical/light earthy hops, and bready malt flavors; very smooth and pretty refreshing to drink with the mellowly bitter/tangy/drying finish; great soft feel. Great Citra, Mosaic profile. Awesomely juicy hops/fruit, with light dank/earthy notes; and a great wheat/oat/malt backbone for the ABV. Light residual sweetness with lingering dryness. A bit over-carbed, but not overwhelming. A very enjoyable offering, and impressive style example as expected. The whole series has been very consistent.
