Not good with pretty words but I'm a bit of a NEIPA expert! This one is exceptional. It's got that perfect murky golden look, it tastes thick and juicy and mildly bitter. They've nailed it, this is what most people are looking for with this style ale. Nuff said!

An easy pour released a finger of off-white creamy foam with very long retention and rings of lacing. Semi-opaque yellow straw color.

A balance of hops (herbal and citrus) and bready malt greets the nose, toasted bread and some pine in the background.

Semi-sweet with medium high bitterness, as in the smell bready malt and balancing bitter hops lead the way. Not as juicy as the look suggests, some orange, lemon and apple that doesn't overpower the malt. A little grainy and grassy with a slight astringency. The finish is semi-dry and is drawn out with spicy/herby bitterness lingering on.

Medium bodied with lots of carbonation, well balanced despite the big flavors. Alcohol is noticeable and warming,
Great representation of the style, a little boozy but it is labeled as a DIPA.

Pours a completely murky dark orange with two fingers of fluffy white foam. Aroma is wonderfully sweet grapefruit, papaya, tangerine, guava, and orange zest. It's a plump little squeeze of tropical fruits straight to the nose, but without the burn. Flavor profile is grapefruit, papaya, tangerine, guava, orange and lemon zest, and grassy hops. While the nose is concise, the flavor profile is expansive, sending out waves of tropical fruits. Mouth feel is medium-thick with a semi-gritty/silty texture that pushes this more into the sipping territory for IPAs (as opposed to gulping or chugging.) Overall, between the dense feel and luscious hops in the flavor profile, this beer packs a notable and hearty presence sip after sip.

Served in a 15.5oz Speigalau tulip from a 16oz can.

Pours a pineapple juicy color with a big thick creamy head, from a 03/17/2021 dated 16 ounce can. Smells like a pineapple and grapefruit blend. Tastes more pineapple than grapefruit but first taste is outstanding. It is very IPA tasting, slightly dry and hoppy with a hint of bitterness. An excellent blend. Overall great beer and would revisit this beauty. A special Thanks to @TastersChoice62 for sharing. Thanks Larry B.

Canned 6 days ago.

L -- Hazy golden orange body with a finger of off-white head produced with moderate pour. Good retention and great lacing. Looks like they --might-- have upped the haziness of their beers lately, but can't quite tell
S -- Sweet creamy malt, dried apricot, white peach, orange sherbert, cantaloupe, kiwi, and a bit of guava
T -- Largely follows the nose, but also has this somewhat unusual peanut butter note to it as well that I also recently noticed with Vitamin Sea's Just Another T-Shirt Shop. Not sure if it's a flaw in the brewing process or what -- just quite strange, especially given that it's a hop-derived flavor note
F -- Medium mouthfeel, medium carb. Nice creamy fluffiness with just the right amount of bitterness
O -- Solid flagship. Sad to see the original barn go as of this week, but the new structure looks pretty great too

Canned on 1/28/20.

A - Opaque dark golden tan color with thick frothy bright white lacing. Foamy and sticky on the sides of the glass.

S - Lightly juiced citrus, pineapple, and guava.

T - Pineapple, guava, passion fruit, spicy citrus rind, and finishes more on the sweet side with minimal bitterness. The citrus rind comes through as a little spicy earthy-like. Spicy earthy citrus lingers on forever.

M - Thick and chewy with pillowy soft texture.

O - This is rock solid and seek this one out.
