APPEARANCE
Yellow in color with a hazy body and two fingers of fluffy white head which leaves excellent lacing.

AROMA
Oranges all day everyday. Some bits of lemon peel and a string bitterness. A slightly resinous aroma complimented with some pineapple.

TASTE
The bitterness and the oranges are still here from the aroma. Can't quite explain it, but it takes a while for the flavors to pop, but when they do, it is glorious. An interesting spike of coconut or pina colada brings in some diversity with a dank finish to boot.

MOUTHFEEL
A 8.5% DIPA, but the body is coming in a tad thin, although I would not call it watery by any means. The finish had dank bitterness for sure, but overall it comes out clean. Goes down pretty damn easy,

OVERALL
Great combo of citrus and bitterness. A fuller, fluffier body would launch it into the elite.

Thanks to WanderLlama for this one.
Hazy, muted gold. Fluffy white head, solid retention, good amount of lacing.
Nose: tangerine, orange zest, coconut, pineapple, and crackery malt.
Taste is more of a smooth ride, cruising around to different flavors. Sometimes they meld, sometimes they stick out as individuals. Tangerine, melon, orange, coconut (still there), mango, pineapple, peach, crackery malt, and some peppery herbal notes.
Mouthfeel is fluffy, active, and medium.
Overall, love it.

a: super hazy matte burnt pale yellow color. a bit of orange in here as well. 2 finger solid white head

s: huge note of tangerine upfront. pineapple, crackers, sweet lemons. orange juice, guava, and honeydew. tang powder and a huge creamsicle note at the end. some sweet grapefruit at the very back as well

t: a bit more mellow than the aroma. sweet oranges, tangerines, and apricot. sweet caramel and a bit of tea leaf at the back of the tongue. big biscuity notes and a touch of honeydew. not as jammed with flavor as i would have guessed from the aroma

m: fuller side of medium mouthfeel with strong carbonation

o: aroma is nice on this, but the flavor could use a bit more punch - both from the hops and malt

A: Honey straw/pastel yellow - par for style. Foam, evenly formed ecru head, mousse top, some beehive lacing.

S: Peach coconut water, tangerine crusted hands rubbed on spruce boughs during a mountain hike, shea butter, mango cramsicle, popsicle sticks, dried pineapple.

M: Super smooth, plush and soft carbonation. Med body. Has a welcoming warmth once settled in the gullet.

T: Soft tropical notes of guava, tangerine, melon/stone fruit, and mango. Overtaken by bitter/tart orange peel, lemon pez, pine, passionfruit and black currant. Overall, mellow, floral tilted beer with brisker notes of green sap/citrus that quickly overpower the tropical sweetness. Nothing really sticks on the palate too much, a little ephemeral and lacking in effect. Reminds me a lot of the sort of beers D96 likes to pump out.

by BergBeer from Hawaii

Poured from a 16oz can into a shaker pint

Look: Hazy peach juice with a thick white head

Smell: All your standard trappings of the style. Peach, guava, ripe mango and pineapple. No malt.

Taste: Same as the nose with some malt sweetness.

Feel: Just thick enough for the style with soft carbonation. No alcohol and low bitterness.

Overall: Just a well made NEIPA! Worth a try!
