I really enjoy this IPA. It has a good citrus taste without too much of a hoppy finish

Really dank. Almost stagnant canal, belying the almost clear-lake look to it. There’s a meatiness to it after the initial larger-like hit. Great nose that carried through to the mouth. Wish I knew more about hopes to properly describe it but it’s savoury, full bodied and very predictable. Wld definitely buy this again.

Mostly clear, orange beer with a fluffy off white head. Nice bands of lacing left behind. Tons of fruit in the nose with oranges and grapefruit. There is a moderate sweetness with a lot of orange flavor. Toward the end a caramel malt comes out and the sip finishes with a nice bitterness. This is a really tasty IPA.

Canned 13 Feb, picked up at Bridge Liquors in Newport.

A mildly hazy orange with an off white head with good retention and lacing, this looks good. The nose is quite excellent with gobs of fruit. There's mango, peach, papaya, a touch of grain and a little husk. A mild grassy hoppy flavor is present as well. The palate opens juicy and fruity with peach, passionfruit, papaya, Kent mangos and pineapple juice. Very refreshing with just a little bit of grass present that detracts from the beer. Drying and juicy on the finish with a mild bitterness. Medium light in body with a moderate level of carbonation, there's a bit of a carbonic acid bite towards the finish which in conjunction with the grassy hops detracts from the excellent flavors. Solid stuff.

From a can poured into a snifter. Hazy amber-golden color with a medium sized white head. Dank aroma with some grapefruit and little pine. The taste was a nice dank resin with a bit of pine and citrus to round it out. Medium bodied and old-school in feel. Very nice.

Pours a hazy straw and orange color. The haze gives it a NEIPA look. The frothy and bubbly head is about a thumbnail length high and shows great retention, leaving a creamy film and sudsy lacing.
First impressions of the aroma are of a citrus bomb that hits the nose with tones of grapefruit pulp and freshly squeezed orange. I also detect banana and pineapple. However, there is a piny, resinous and herbal aroma that soon comes to the fore and creates a nice interplay with the citrus and tropical juices.
Belying its NEIPA look, the taste has more of a West Coast quality. It has a dry bitterness that is redolent of sharp pine needles. The finish, clean at first, gradually becomes more resinous. Amidst this earthy bitterness, the palate is concurrently awash with a chalky feeling grapefruit pith and a touch of lemon peel; a lovely duet between citrus and pine. For sure, this one is all about the hops.
The mouthfeel is wonderfully soft and smooth, owing perhaps to the inclusion of wheat. It is medium bodied with a tongly yet restrained carbonation. It is citrusy, earthy and dry with a prickly bitterness. I like that the bitterness is ample yet not palate wrecking.
Overall a wonderful no nonsense IPA. I’m happy to continue drinking this great local product.
