I got a 6pck of this at my local meijer. It poured a hazy orangish with white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent had tropical fruit peel notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with tropical fruit start and bitter citrus finish. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall its a solid beer.

A: The beer is very hazy to cloudy yellow in color. It poured with a two finger high off white head that died down, leaving a thick pillow-like head covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of tropical fruit hops are present in the nose along with hints of caramel malts.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of pineapples along hints of spicy hops and slight bits of citrus. There is a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. No crispness is detectable.
O: The taste of this beer has an interesting contrast of tropical fruits and spicy hops.

I really need to get more of these. I grabbed a single, just glancing at the pretty recent date on the can. I did not know I was getting into a great AIPA.

It pours thick with suspended material and foam. This is a thick brew. The aroma is sweet with fresh hops. The taste is big and bold, with loads of body. Sweet malts and mountains of hops make for a real American style over the top IPA. The burp is like a mouthful of hops.

Highly recommended, but by the time you read this I will have gone to the store and bought all there was left of this.

This is part of their "Small Batch IPA Series". It's a "New England IPA". Canned on 7/20/18. 12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy burnt golden with some sediment floating around; fluffy white head that sticks around leaving great thick retention and sticky lacing. The aromas have lots of tropical fruits. Some citrus in the mix. Malts are there. The flavors follow the nose perfectly. Pineapple is there along with some peach. Nice hop flavors. Moderate to low bitterness. Fruit juice vibe going on without being too sweet or drinking like an actual juice. Solid malt backbone. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with moderate to low carbonation. It's very fluffy, creamy and slightly slick. It's smooth and easy to drink.

This is a nice "New England IPA". Nice hop aromas and flavors. It's very enjoyable and fun to drink. Well done. I really like it.
