16 oz can from Tavour. Pour: NEIPA. Finely beaded head, solid lacing. Light fruity aroma, muted. Taste really opens up with a huge blast of citric hops, snappy, zesty, mix of tropucal and citrus fruits. Tongue tingler.

Hazy, peach colored body topped with a thick, rocky, creamy head, dense and white. Nice citrus and tropical fruit aroma. Finely balanced taste incorporating citrus pith, toasty, oat-like grain flavor and a heavy bitterness. Heavy body; thick and velvety on the palate; overall dry character.

This beer emphasizes bitterness more than anything else. The citrus and grain elements are there, but the sharp, almost acrid bitterness is unmistakable. So it a bitter beer is your thing, this is a beer to try.

A - Pours bright yellow-orange, hazy opaque body, with big head, pretty persistent and lots of lacing.

S - Strong nose of hops, citrus and tropical fruit notes over a wild hop smack, dankness and pine and mint, too.

T - Follows the nose, with a pungent flavor which starts with orange juice and pineapple, a soft and malt forward middle, and a moderate pith bitterness in the finish. Throughout, there is an herbal note, some spiciness, and minerality. It is a deep, delicious ride.

M - Moderate weight, mild carbonation, and a sticky lingering finish. There is build here, but it remains pretty drinkable.

O - A superbly built DIPA, with strong NEIPA elements. A real treat, and one I'd grab again if it came my way.

Received from @jvgoor3786 in BIF 12 - canned on 10-14-2020 and enjoyed on 1-5-2021
Pours a hazy apricot color with a slight trace of a head that dissipates to barely connected islands. Quite good lacing despite the thin head though.
The aroma is very enjoyable to me, citra hops are very noticeable and ones tend to I like in IPAs. The impression is fresh and clean.
The taste is good, most refreshing and full of those citrus flavors with a touch of hop bite at the back of the throat to remind you not to slam this 8% abv tasty treat.
The feel is fully appropriate for a hazy DIPA, not sure it could be made much better but I'm not one to know that.
So, overall, I very much enjoyed this and was a little saddened to reach the bottom of the glass. If this were local, I would certainly drink it on a regular basis.
