Feels somewhat anonymous, especially compared to most BG IPAs - soft citrus, some grassy hops, still a very good beer just lacks an assertive identity.

Thanks to JLindros for sharing this growler.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a hazy golden hue with a thin white head that fades to leave nice lacing.

S - Aromas of light citrus, good oranges, light malts. Almost orange creamsicle like. Nice citrus oil.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, nice orange cream, good citrus. There is nice citrus peel and oils. Fluffy malts, pleasant.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, fluffy, solid body.

O - Overall this was a rather solid hoppy beer, nice oranges. Really pleasant!

Growler thanks to roguekielbasa (Reddit), filled 11/19

Pours a nice fluffy bubbly 1/2 finger head that fades semi slowly, nice lacing, super murky cloudy apricot orange color

Nose brings lots of citrus, loads of orange juice and orange cream, a bit of rind, mild stone fruit, some mango and faint tropical notes, with a bit of a grassy herbal note. As it warms a lot more mango and some pineapple too.

Taste brings a big creamy wheat or oat base, I don't get a lot of toasty bready wheat flavors so I'm guessing it was oat heavy, actually almost feels like oatmeal, hops brings mild citrus, orange juice, a bit of tangerine and faint peachy note, also mango in there, and a bit of orange rind, back end hops get a little grassy and a touch of pine late, and even maybe a touch earthy. Finishes drier with fair bitterness, lingering earthy grassy hops with a touch of citrus and mango lingering.

Mouth is med bod, very creamy oatmeal like and soft, decent carb

Overall this was pretty good, not incredible but tasty. Really interesting oatmeal like mouth.

Tap

Pours hazy lemon orange, white lacing for a head.

Smells of grapefruit, orange, and passion fruit. Sourdough and cracker malts.

Flavor of grapefruit, orange, lemon, passion fruit and cracker malts.

Medium body with tingly carbonation on the tongue.

Very nice NEIPA, lots of good flavor and a nice smooth drinkable body. Definitely worth trying.

On tap at Brew Gentlemen in Braddock, PA.

This one pours a hazy creamsicle looking yellow, with a small head and lots of lacing.

This smells like juicy peach and mango with a dry grassy aroma.

The taste is similar. These Brew Gentlemen beers just hit all the right spots for me. It's got a great soft slightly acidic peach character, with mango, dry bitter grassy hops, and grapefruit.

This is so juicy and creamy, with a good level of carbonation.

These guys simply cannot miss for me.
