Appearance is a pale golden orange with a fleeting foamy head. Very nice bright and fruity aromas, mandarine seems to be dominant. The taste is a bit underwhelming to me, not much going on with this beer. It's mostly fruity and sweet with almost no bitterness or malt profile to balance it out. Very light and crisp mouthfeel, body is on the lighter side. I love the fruit aspect but it lacks in character and needs more malts and bitterness to round out the flavor.

Pint can poured in to a nonic glass, dated 03/05/20.

Look- Hazy rich golden amber color. Solid off-white head that slowly recedes to a thin cap of foam, good lacing. Light carbonation streams visible.

Smell- Tropical fruit (pineapple primarily), citrus (tangerine and lemon), peach/nectarine, faint pine and floral/spicy hop notes.

Taste- Similar to the aroma, juicy tropical fruit, citrus, nectarine, minimal bitter pine and slight pepper with a solid malt backbone. Well balanced.

Feel- Medium bodied but on the crisper side, medium/heavy carbonation on the tongue.

O- Considered their house IPA and it delivers. I could put away many of these on a warm summer day.

I'm not sure why the low ratings prior to mine here but this is an excellent example of a NEIPA. Fruity, light, juicy, with a little bitter bite as it goes down. Quite enjoyed at the brewery. Aroma is great with it's pineapple that follows up in the taste. Fizzy too that lends to going down light and refreshing.

I have not seen this before so I am assuming it's the 2019 edition. Big lemon peel aroma. Very sticky pile of mashed potato foam is always fun. It's just a little hazy and yellow in color. The label mentions "hazy," calls it a "juicy India pale ale," and in fine print, "brewed with citrus zest." Hops are not mentioned and it does taste more like a lemon-lime peel brew than an IPA.

Some malty sweetness and the citrus taste followed by a little pithy bitterness. This is quite drinkable and interesting. It would just be a disappointment to the IPA fan expecting to be ravaged by hops. From the 500 ml bottle purchased at Haggen Market.

Served in Willi Becher pint. Poured a full-on murky (zero transparency) orange color with 1/4 inch of white head that had low retention and lace.

The aroma was all fruity hops, no grain, yeast or other balancing aspects.

The flavor was the same, fruit with no counter-point, but did have a slight bitter tang on the finish.

The body was medium, and had a semi-sweet finish.

Drinkability was Ok, but I probably won't get another. Overall, if you like the Turbid-bomb brews, you'll likely enjoy this.
