Hazy. Fruity. Smooth. Like a bunch of tropical fruits blended and fermented.

Only issue? Maybe fermented a bit too long. Bit of an alcohol burn. Not overpowering, but there compared to some of the others on draft. Tasty, smooth enough, but my table enjoyed Here’s To Feeling Good All The Time much more, that was a damn near perfect beer.

Had on tap. Hazy darker yellow with a full white head and light lacing. Big citrus and bright tropical fruit juices with dank hops for the aroma bouquet. Taste adds a shot of honey, instead of general citrus and tropical juice, now here I get defined orange, lemon, pineapple, lychee, papaya, big peach, and grapefruit. Super juicy and refreshing feel, medium bodied and bright with a wet softness.

An outstanding hazy NEIPA.

Appearance is light yellow, opaque, light head.

Smell is strong grapefruit, citrus, lemon, orange. Maybe just a very slight touch of dank?

Feel is a touch light, but that adds to the drinkability without being too heavy. Nice effervescence.

Taste follows the smell, forward and strong grapefruit dominates, undertones of citrus, lemon, orange. Very delicious, very drinkable. Nicely balanced without being a ‘juice bomb’ or cloyingly dank.

Overall one of (if not the overall) the best hazy NEIPA’s. You could have several of these in a row.

Typical NE hazy yellow IPA with an orange tinge and a nice cream head.
Tropical nose of papaya, melon and pineapple with a racy grapefruit citrus note running through.
Palate follows nose very closely and the hops are nicely integrated rather than overpowering and dominating.
A really great beer.

Pours a bright orange-yellow color. Completely opaque, somewhat thickish. Lovely three finger head forms on the beer, lingers, and then dissipates leaving a thin layer of residual foam on top of the beer. Aroma has notes of bright citrus, papaya, pineapple, with some light dank hoppy notes. Its really nice - balance of sweetness, fruit but with some bitterness.

Taste follows the nose with notes of citrus, orange rind, mango, papaya and peach - sweet but not overly so. A nice bitterness on the back end cuts that sweetness down and balances it out a bit. There are some light straw notes and a certain grassiness to the beer. Feel is medium bodied, moderate carbonation, somewhat drier finish.

Overall its a lovely NE style IPA and definitely worthy of the high ranking here. Its not often these days that a NE style IPA impresses me, but this one did.

Can from Jeff, thanks for the trade.
Thought I'd rated this guess not. Hazy dark lemon color with a decent sized long lasting bubbly white head. Pithy resinous aroma with sweet bread. Fruity pineapple and grapefruit with plenty of earthy pine and resin. Nice Brew.
