Canned 5/4/18, Enjoyed 5/7/18. Fantastic session IPA probably my favorite session beer. Incredibly fresh, great haziness and impeccable flavor for the low ABV. Strongly recommend this one.

Over this is a nice beer. As a session this is really impressive. Body and flavor with a great hop profile is so hard to do with a session and this really hits the mark

Pours a very pale yet very cloudy yellow color (almost like white grapefruit juice) with a 2 finger white head that leaves some spotty lacing. It pours with a strong fizz to it as well. This color is just wild! Love it.

Aroma is string with apricot notes blended with a bit of hot hops - The can is 2 days old so it may need to settle down a bit before I have the next one.

The taste is light and effervescent with the thinnest of malt profile. There are strong apricot and maybe a touch of peach notes up front, lasting into the finish. There is some wheat in the recipe and it comes through but not overwhelming.

Feel is soft but very light and bubbly. No bitterness at all.

Just a really refreshing beer that is full of flavor but super light in alcohol. Again, I am drinking this too early I think because there is a hot hop flavor present. Will report back when the cans age some.

On tap at High Roller Lobster in Portland. More like a hazy pale ale. Kinda didn't love the mix, would like to have again.

Can: Poured a hazy super bright yellow color ale with a medium size white foamy head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of citrusy and light tropical hoppy notes is pleasant and refreshing. Taste is a nice mix of citrusy notes with some light tropical flavours, some residual sugar with some light watery notes also perceptible. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation. Interesting sessionable NEIPA but light watery feel is slightly bugging me.
