Look: Not a ton of head retention or lacing but this beer looks super hazy and cloudy.

Smell: The smell on this bad boy is amazing, tropical fruits, mango and pineapple.

Taste: Small hop bite from the simcoe of the front but all tropical fruit flavor on the back end. I have discovered that I really like IPA's that shoot for that tropical fruit flavor.

Feel: This has a nice soft feel, maybe closes I have had to the treehouse beers, not on that level, but close.

Overall: Really enjoyable beer.

Not retired....tall can....2/8/18

Wonderful looking NEIPA kinda super hazed pour, leaves world class fine sheeting....

Pineapple juiced up nose...pungent and enticing

Delicious brew with loads of dank tropical notes, over the tap luscious and smooth hoppyness, with limited bitterness...go get some and savor each sip

This beer pours a very cloudy Tropicana orange juice color with a 3 finger, fluffy, bright white head that lasts forever until finally receeding to a fluffy, one finger cap that lasts the entirety of the beer. There are tons of webs, patches and spots of lacing left all over the glass.

Smell is bright and juicy pineapple, resinous pine and a touch of earthiness.

Taste is the same. Juicy pineapple is dominant, but the pine and earthiness come in towards the end providing a moderately bitter finish also with a tinge of alcohol.

Feel is medium bodied and soft until the finish where a bit of stickiness and prickliness comes in. As the beer warms there is a bit of heat from the alcohol that is slightly unpleasant.

Overall this beer is very good. I love the massive amount of juicy pineapple flavor coupled with the bitterness on the finish. But I could do without the harshness on the finish. Will update my review if a few weeks in the can mellows it out a bit.

On tap at RnH West. This is crystal clear, can easily see my fingers on the other side of the glass, really strange for a DDH OH IPA.

Very tasty brew--very fruity, almost perfume-like, with pineapple predominating...mild bitterness
