I got a can of this beer from my good friend and old neighbor from the 'Wego. It poured a hazy orangish with white head that is leaving some lace. The scent had ripe citrus fruit notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with stone fruit and tropical fruit peel presence. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it is a solid beer.

A: The beer is quite hazy and a bit pale yellow in color. It poured with a short white head that quickly died down, leaving a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of gooseberry and lychee are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has lots of flavors of lychee with notes of gooseberry and hints of lime. Little to no bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied and very juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This New England IPA is exceptionally easy to drink and goes down very easily.

16oz can from Tavour. Hazy golden pour, small creamy head. Fruity aroma, not any fruit in particular, like a bag of gummy bears. Taste is a more of the subdued gummies, with some solid bready malts underneath. Not sweet, not bitter.

Barely a head generated above the murky yellow beer but enough to line the inner circumference of the glass and lace a bit. The color is sus but in a daring sort of way.

Big tropical fruit plate aroma - think Maui Sheraton breakfast buffet.

Taste follows the appearance if that is possible - bitter but not traditional

The watery look of the surface deceives. Full bodied with a coolness that dances in the finish.

Interesting and worth a try if you are into the style.

Aroma is amazing, but the taste had this onion-y/chive thing going on that I've experienced with another beer (Hopbutcher Tavern Cut) and I cannot stand that taste.

Smooth going down. Doesn’t it have a hoppy taste. Doesn’t have a bitter after taste. I recommend.

Thanks again Matt!

The crack of the fun, oversized cap reveals an explosion of mango and pineapple. But let's not get ahead of ourselves, let's talk about looks. The body looks creamy with a thick opaque solid yellow, like pineapple juice blended with plain yogurt. The tiny bubbles of foam above is frothy, leaving thin sheets of lace after each sip.

Back to the nose. The initial fruit bomb has dissipated leaving touches of passion fruit, lime, pine and rubber. Like a rubber band, not tire rubber.

Flavor follows with an initial swirl of tropical fruits that are quickly overcome by cactus fruit, evergreen sap, and again with a burnt rubber finish. This may be just me, but it's a flavor I typically get with Chinook among other hops, and it's a flavor I've come to really enjoy.

Interesting feel on this one as it is creamy bodied but has a sharp and tingly carbonation that cuts through the heft with ease. Not a Notion of the alcohol, and almost perfectly balanced with a favoring edge towards bitterness. There is even a mild tartness that works well with the blend of it all.

I've liked all of these Noon Whistle offerings I've been fortunate enough to try. This one seems to get better the more I sip on it, but oddly enough flip flopped flavor besting scent over the duration.
