Sometimes evolution is observed in real time. Case in point: Nu Juice IPA. Over the course of more than a year of development, our R&D team uncovered the ultimate balance of hops and malts. This process involves adding Mosaic, Ekuanot, and Simcoe hops over a multi-day period, creating a refreshingly juicy and approachable IPA. As an added bonus, bitterness has been reduced to a low 30 for what could be the smoothest IPA ever brewed.

Aroma is mostly juice very little hops. If you're not a huge fan of standard IPAs this is a beer for you. Super easy drinking.

Pours golden yellow with light haze and medium lace. Smells of tangerine, funk, malt. Taste and feel are on the thin side. Low IBUs for people who hate the IPA bite, but it's not what I'm looking for. It's closer to a session IPA because of this, or even a warm Ice beer from 7-11. Sour-sweet malty aftertaste, not awful but not enjoyable. Rather disappointed with this overall. The calories, carbs, and ABV of a regular IPA, but the muted taste of a session IPA. Why?

Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Very clear body, with a real nice shimmering brass bronze color. Real nice clarity showing ample amounts of carbonation reaching to a classic off white three finger head. Good retention, classic dolloped island top and some pill lacing remains. Kind of looks like a classic West coast ipa.

Mellow sensing hop notes of juice orange and a light touch of hebal spice. Faint hints of tropical pineapple as well, but otherwise fairly straightforward, with a neutral malt and yeast presence.

Palate seems a little faded but easily delivers. Light touches of herbal pine notes mixing in with a soft orange and almost minty herbs. Light touches of juicy character, but more of a thicker supportive mouthfeel that hints more grain than orange juice. Good spicy finish with mellow astringency, but does come across as a bit old.

Me and my laziness checking dates, yup this is old but still manages to be quite pleasurable.

A: Honey-gold pour with a good mixture of carbonation has a slightly hazy tint. Billowy and rocky, dull white head is two inches initially, with a rather slow collapse, leaving a nice coverage of foamy strands on the glass walls.

S: Dank and funky hoppiness, spicy, tart and somewhat tropical. Tart pineapple and passionfruit come to mind, along with some lemon drop candy and herbal peach. A spicing of ginger and methanol-mint along with some dank citrusy notes. A sweet malting of caramel-orange and strawberries rounds out.

T: Nice, dank citrusy-grapefruit with some strawberry-melon sweetness as a backdrop. Lemon candy and methanol-mint alcohol with some semi-tart pineapple-peach. Warming and woodsy feel of citronella with a light peppery flair. Warming alcohol of dank scotch-pine and fennel rounds out with some orange-caramel that closely resembles the nose.

M: Solid fullness with a spicy hop oils on the inner cheeks. Spicy methanol-mint alcohol and dank citrus combine on the tongue.

O: Overall a wide spectrum of hop flavors, from dank tropical, to melon-strawberries, to caramel-orange and peach. A solid hopping level that reminds me of Australian hops and provides a nice break from the N.E. and west coast flair up. Dank hopping and tropical really defines this drink and really does feel like something nu verse the same old.

From a 12oz can dated best by 6/29/21 into a pint glass.

Pours a translucent golden yellow with about four fingers of white head (aggressive our!). Great retention

Smells fairly strongly of pineapple, grapefruit and faint tangerine. Also a bit of pine.

Taste is disappointing compared to the nose. Picking up some light bitterness and maybe a bit of orange/tangerine-not too "juicy."

Fairly light bodied with slight stickiness. Bitter aftertaste. Low carbonation.

Overall, decent juicy nose, not much else. Was expecting more sweet juicy flavor. Kind of west coasty but not quite there.

Initially tasting pine and sweet-orange peel. As I get further into it, there’s also bright lemon and moderate bitterness that lingers on the tongue.

Pours medium amber with a thick white head that fades to a thin white cap. Aroma is hoppy with a bit of dank in there. Flavor is hoppy bitter with little malt sweetness to back it up. Feel is sharp and cutting, not crazy but not very smooth. Overall it’s a drinkable IPA that looks and smells good but is a bit shy in the taste and feel.
Should be noted it was canned three months before consuming.

Clear gold. Citrus nose (orange, grapefruit), pine, grape, berry. Really not that juicy at all to me. Flavor follows. Reasonably bitter. Medium mouthfeel.
