look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Solid first beer for me from Fair State. Draught pour onto shaker pint.

A: Murky brown yellow with 1 finger of white medium density head with good retention and left mixed lacing.

S: Very enjoyable tropical nose, mango, guava and papaya and lesser pineapple, hidden citrus notes that gain prominence as it warms.

T: Follows the nose but doesn't match its intensity. More citrus prominence vs the nose, especially some lemon. Finishes with mild bitterness, subtle acidity lingers slightly.

F: Thinner bodied with moderate high carbonation, slick on tongue and finish.

O: Very nice hazy from a new-to-me brewery. Needs better mouthfeel, but I'd definitely repeat.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Hazed light golden pour with big fluffy white head. Great sticky lacing.

S: Tropical and fruity... citrus and sweets.

T.F: Light grainy malts. Sweet and fruity up front. Tropical fruit... melon, pineapple, and grapefruit. Modest hop bitterness... Creamy and sticky on the tongue. More floral and fruit at the finish.

O: A very well done NEIPA. Great flavor... light and crushable... excellent.

Pours a hazy lemon color with a very nice white head. Smell has muted lemon,citrus notes. Taste had lemon and grapefruit hops a bit of tangerine and melon. A thin mouth feel with muted hops a bit watery at times with a lemon pledge finish. 1 Can for me was enough ,not reccomended.

Canned 1/11. Looks just like orange juice with an off white head. Smells a bit green, very hop forward, a touch of citrus. Citrus comes forward in the taste--lemon, grapefruit, pineapple. Fruity sweetness rather than malt sweetness. Smooth as hell and slightly chewy. Brilliant NE style pale
