Look: minimal head, almost no lacing.

Smell: tropical, citrus, fruit

Taste: starts out very good with loads of tropical fruit and citrus. Unfortunately as this one warms up it becomes a sweet mess. This beer used to be good and balanced. IPAS (of any style) should have a certain amount of bitterness to counter the sweetness. This one does not.

Feel: swing and a miss. There's little creaminess, which is the most important aspect of a NE Style IPA.

Overall: the quality of Noon Whistle has really gone down hill over the past year. I am willing to give them another chance. But I do believe they should go back to their roots of session ales.

An interesting can. The whole top comes off allowing you to take in the tropical and slightly piney aroma while drinking rather than losing a portion of that wonderful nose during pouring. I had to see it so drank half each way. This is as opaque as a New England gets and looks (and smells) like orange pineapple juice, with other tropical delights. This taste is milder in comparison but did not disappoint, a slight tartness balanced this out and a hair of musty dankness on the finish.
I couldn't drink two, but that is because the weight and mouthfeel are deceptively heavy for the ABV. Do give it a go.

16 oz. can, BBD: 12/18
Opaque dark orange juice pour, thin layer of foam with little to no lacing.
Juicy tropical aroma, on the sweet side, mango and pineapple.
Sweet fruit juice, mango, pineapple, orange. A little tart oddly enough, not unlike a sour gummy worm.
The twangy tartness was a little weird, otherwise it was sweet and full bodied. Finished it but didn't want another.

Tap

Pours hazy orange yellow. White lacing for a head.

Smells of grapefruit, orange, passion fruit, and sourdough bread.

Tastes of sourdough bread and crackers mixed with fresh citrus and passion fruit. Fresh grapefruit hop finish.

Medium body with stinging carbonation on the tongue.


Really nice NEIOA, lots of good refreshing flavor. Definitely worth trying.

12 oz draft pour into a goblet displays a hazy opaque orange colored body and sports a quickly dissipating 1/8in whitish head.
Aroma is grapefruit, pineapple and slight onion.
Flavor is all juicy citrus.
Mouthfeel is full juice.
Overall a good beverage, just not my style.
