Amazing, had it on draft at Olive Bar in Unionville, had 5 of them. If you can find it, drink it. I like it better than the double fuzzy.

Really excellent IPA. Finally got my hands on some fresh cans this weekend. Opaque pale orange with a lacy white head. Strong aromas of papaya and a whole range of citrus, especially orange. Medium bodied, smooth textured, and pleasantly dry throughout. Lighter and more refreshing, though less complex, than their DIPAs. Of course that's by design. NEBCO's got the winning recipes.

12oz. can into a Fuzzy sensory glass.

Hazy, like a New England IPA... though not quite as hazy. Nose reveals its not quite that though. Aromas of citrus, grapefruit, pine and fresh cut grass. A swirl gives additional notes of cantaloupe and pungent hop bitterness. A classic smell. Beer opens citrus, papaya and pineapple with hints of grass, pine and a fresh hop bitterness in the back. Finally! Some BALANCE between the tropical fruit notes and a nice, biting hop bitterness. Finishes cane sugar and grapefruit with a distinct hop film in the aftertaste. Body is light with moderate to ample carbonation. Prickly and foamy in the mouth and goes down soft with a dry and filmy aftertaste. Super drinkable.

It's impressive when a single IPA can pack this much flavor. It's even more impressive when that flavor comes with great balance. This is a classic for sure and holds its own as a pre-cursor to the hazy IPA style.

Golden orange yellow in color. Hazy in appearance. Citrus zest, nectarine and mango. Biscuit malt profile. Medium bodied with a creamy feel. Lower in carb. Balanced with all flavors melding together. Not really bursting with flavor, but it's nice. Don't really get the super hype on this one. Maybe the balanced nature of it actually elevates it.
