Served in a glass at the Stoneface Brewing Company in Newington, New Hampshire.
A: Pours a hazy, golden orange color very akin to orange juice, with a white head displaying low retention and only soapy lacing.
S: Light aromas of peach, mango and citrus.
T: Fruity flavor a melange of peach and pineapple, resiny. Low bitterness. Very refreshing and crisp.
M: Light bodied with low to moderate carbonation.
O: A light bodied, refreshing IPA closer to the EC variety. Like Full Blip, but flavor more in the pitted to tropical fruit spectrum. Again, a positive change from a typically loud, spicy NEIPA.

Very airy and agitated head, gets close to three fingers, bleached white, deeply dimpled surface, retention is better than expected, however, the lacing starts off as big splotches that sink down into the morass. More filmy than outright cloudy, to the transparent side of translucent, washed out yellow hued liquid, healthy amount of very large bubbles rushing up to the surface. The nose is somewhat tightly would with an emphasis on florality, orange zest, salted pretzels, snappy apple, peach fruit scents, subtler malts waft in and out, texturally it feels dry and stiff in the nostrils. Medium-bodied, likewise here too it’s dry and has very good grip for its weight. The carbonation feels more like a flurry of punches than a consistent tickle. Peppery and salty, more grains than cooked bread, in fact it feels “unprocessed” on the whole like an assemblage of uncooked ingredients. Paucity of fruit, mainly apricot, peach to pear, certainly nothing tropical. More leafy than deep, resonating herbaceousness. Clean and fresh, lemon to white grapefruit citrus bite and seems at times more savory than sweet. Admirable liveliness.

Had this on 2017-10-01 in Columbia, PA from a 12oz can dated 2017-03-29

A - Very hazy straw-yellow with a 1-finger white head and nice lace

S - Very ripe peach, light-moderately dank, cracker, grassy spice

T - Low amount of toasted white bread, black and herbal tea, white pepper, lemon flesh. Reasonably bitter finish for the style.

M - Light body and medium-high carbonation. Effervescent. Dry.

O - A pleasant, easy-to-drink IPA for hot summer days.

Had on tap. Pours clear, bright yellow in color with minimal head. taste is lemon, citrus punch, and grain. Super light bodied, slightly sweet, with moderate carbonation. Makes for a nice and refreshing summer sipper.

12 oz can - no date

Pours a slightly hazy light yellowish gold with a 3 finger silky head that aerates out to large gaping bubble holes but keeps retention on the glass.

Aroma is sticky sweet pineapple and mango notes, just moderately strong though.

Taste is not as sweet as the scent, which is a good thing because I was worried. There is a nice moderate bitterness that takes front and center along with a nice light malt flavor while the sweet hop flavors go to the back seat. This is a good working combination that carries this beer into the "worth it" zone. There are some cistrusy lemon notes not present in the aroma.

The beer is light and not sticky, and has a moderate seltzer feel that works well. light to moderate maltiness keeps it refreshing.

I was surprised by this beer. I have always liked their flagship IPA - a great example of a standard IPA. This is a fantastic entry into the Northeast "hazy" IPA category, meaning it has a sweet, hoppy profile along with a hazy look.

Can with no date

Pours a crazy aggressive head that rises almost 3 fingers taking up half of the glass, the fizzy foamy head fades at a med pace with soapy lacing, hazy neon yellow color.

Nose fruity floral grassy hops, fairly grassy, lemony too, lemongrass, citrus zest, flora, a little spicy, faint cracker toasty malt.

Taste brings lemon and grassy hops again, a big cereal toasted bready grain, fruity pebbles, almost wheat like, floral grassy leafy hops, fair bitterness turning spicy and pretty bitter on the dry finish, more cracker bready malts, grassy herbal leafy hops, more lemon.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, plenty of carb.

Overall not bad, decent characters, nothing bad with it, but doesn't do much for me either.
