look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A: Poured from the can into a Tree House tulip. Body is golden - more yellowish when backlit - with a wisp of whitish head on top.

S: Good, strong nose jumps out of the glass: citrus (oranges especially, some grapefruit) and sweeter tropical fruit (mango, papaya, ripe melon). Also a touch of something earthy.

T: Follows the nose, with tropical fruit - ripe melon, papaya - and a lot of sweet oranges. Finishes pretty sweet, with a touch of dryness noted.

M: A bit chalky at times, but good overall. Call it medium in heft, pretty juicy in feel.

O: Quite good.

I got a can of this beer from my bestie from Charlotte, NC whom got it from a beer of the month club mixed pack. It poured a hazy orangish with very thin white ring head that is not leaving much lace. The scent had dank ripe tropical fruit notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with apricot, guava and papaya presence.....with fruit peel spice. The mouthfeel was medium in body and had good carbonation. Overall it is a solid beer.

Pours a hazy golden yellow. Kind of the color of ripe mango flesh. It definitely falls within the tropical vein as far as nose. I'm getting papaya and mango, perhaps some pineapple as well. It's definitely got that Dole Tropical thing going for it. I'm getting papaya, guava, mango, pineapple, with a touch of that green onion on the finish. With so much tropical fruit character up front, the little bit of onion on the finish is welcome as it helps break up those notes between sips (I also like onion, YMMV). Overall, a really good NEIPA and I see why this gets the attention it does. This is the best IPA I've had in a while (a month?).

Bought this beer from Hazel's in Boulder, CO for ~$4 for a 16 oz can. Super fresh, canned: 06/02/21, consumed: 06/14/21.

A&S: Dark pulpy orange juice-colored beer. 1 finger of off-white head, that subsides to speaks and a ring. The aroma contains lots of fruits such as pineapples, oranges, and lemons. Also, hints of floral hops and maybe some mint.

T&M: Upfront the taste is citrus presents. Mid-tastes oranges and mangos. Much like the other beer I have tried from Weldwerks, this beer is a little too sweet for me. Juicy finish, not dry at all. Very heavy on the palate, full-bodied beer. Medium carbonation.

Overall: I thought this beer was a little too heavy for my preferences but pretty solid overall. The price is fair as well.

Mew England IPA’s are ugly. That’s the style but I’m not over it yet. But this has a nice white lacing and head.

The aroma is lacking when compared to other excellent NEIPAs.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 16 ounce can into an IPA glass.

Look- Hazy, straw, frothy white head, average head retention and lacing.

Smell- Clementine, mango, pineapple, earthy.

Taste- Herbaceous, clementine, tart, mango, flavors with the exception of the herbaceous essence were understated.

Feel- Between thin and medium body, soft, slightly astringent, creamy, below average carbonation, low bitterness.

Overall- The herbaceous flavors of this beer overpowered the fruit flavors.

In honor of beer day, I will give this fine looking brew a try. Dull golden, hazy with a decent sized head, this does look nice. Citra is most prominent on the nose, wow an orange juice like scent for sure. Just what I needed, juicy and sweet with a slight bitter follow through, yum! Decent enough carbonation and a slightly creamy feel round out this winner. Nothing earth shattering in any one category but quite a solid brew.

I preferred the ddh version. Their beer flavored beer is honestly really solid and all their experiment sours are fun its just there's not a lot from here I'd buy more than one time. But I do try a lot from here. You don't need me to tell you juicy bits is good.


Lmao at my above review, trying this again a few months down the road and boy Is this more run of the mill to me. the Dry Hopped versions are pretty hype worthy still but idk, Rare Trait is a better brew to me personally now i guess. All that said this one is still pretty fire

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Aroma:

Cheery and spritzy come to mind, still has weight and complexity, but certainly doesn't leap out of the glass. Tangerine flesh, grapefruit zest, floral pear lotion (not artificial at all, just kinda prickly). Some ripe mango adds to the juicy quality and ever so often under ripe blackberries with lemon poke out.

Palate:

The zesty and prickliness continue, definitely pear driven here. Kiss of the dankness, especially as it comes up to temp. Texture is soft, blood orange, but I cant help feel the beer can't decide if it wants to be a kiss sweeter or a touch more bitter. Finish is pithy and reminds me of Fiddlehead.

Impression:

It's not inappropriate to drink this by the pint.

In Colorado:
LOOK: This pours a hazy, opaque light gold with a small white head that recedes quickly to a thin skin, but does retain superior side glass lace.
AROMA: Citrus and floral hops. the Citrus is largely of a tropical nature of mango and papaya most evident. Also get some orange and lemon rind.
TASTE: Yum herbal and floral, citrus hops are moderate. Nothing too tart. Malty and well balanced, creamy with the mango and citrus rinds the most prominent fruit flavors.
FEEL: Smooth
Nice pine and bitter resin in the finish. Exceptional

16oz can into a pint glass. NO freshness dating.

Looks outstanding in the glass. Pale orange/pear juice colored body. Bright white head shrinks to a thick ring and covering leaving very good lacing.

Faintly musty tropical fruit aroma.

On tasting, there's a lot going on here. Tropical, juicy, fruity, a touch of dank, a little pepper,and even a decent bitterness.

Mouth close to full, finish a combination of the above flavors.

Overall, very good interpretation of the style, and even adds to it. Sorry to only have the pair.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

16oz can poured into a tulip

A- pours a hazy orange color with a one-finger foamy white head that has good retention and leaves some lacing behind

S- aroma is predominately citrusy hops with aromas of grapefruit zest and pithy orange. Undertones of pineapple, mango and a hint of grass

T- tropical fruity notes dominate up front with notes of sweet mango, papaya, passionfruit and pineapple. Mid-palate brings out a big note of peach skin before finishing slightly sweet with plenty of tropical fruit notes lingering

M- medium-heavy body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that turns slightly creamy into the finish

O- juicy with no bitterness, somehow comes across as sweet fruit without tasting malty, well done

Brown bagging it...

Smells great, even out of the can. Ton of tropical hop variety to be had here. No real malt character, which was expected. IPA freaks, I'm telling you right now, some great malt bills will create the new styles. This beer wouldn't suffer with a warm baked bread background, would it? Something tells me it's possible, and that the beer scientists are on it

But back on topic, this is juicy, dry finish, I wish it was more bitter, maybe a little too sweet. But this is nitpicking, it's amazing beer

Very cloudy straw appearance with nice white head that dissipates slowly. Aroma is a prominent grapefruit. Taste is also a prominent smooth grapefruit with very little bitterness.

Cloudy, slightly translucent golden-orange. Foamy white head. Good retention and lacing.
Smells lemony, some orange and pineapple.
Tastes of orange juice, lemon pulp, a bit of mango and pineapple. Moderately sweet, heavily sweet-citrus, a touch of orange/grapefruit rind reels in the sweetness on the finish but with almost no bitterness.
Medium mouthfeel, slightly silky but not thick, well carbonated.
A pretty solid NEIPA.

Can dated 9/17:
A very hazy but not cloudy yellow orange with a fair head that does manage to lace the glass pretty well.

Nose has a ton of citrus - juicy for sure, which should have been expected given the foreshadowing in the beer's name. There's a classic raw American hop backing the citrus to add a layer of enjoyment to each sniff.

Taste is less juicy than expected, with a feel that is nearing medium, presumably from the feel-aiding adjuncts. I still kinda like the feel - it's got a couple toes in the realm of an old school IPA.

Similarly, the back end of this beer reminds me a little of some Citra hopped beers of old. Less juice, yes - and actually a little blah for the first half. The back end really brings citrus rind, orange and grapefruit - with a little more zest of the smaller fruit and pith of the larger.

I liked this fairly well - a little old school, a little new school, with an increased (presumably dry-hopped) aroma.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Excellent head production; decent retention; very nice lacing. Body is indeed hazy, a light shade of orange-gold, but not quite the pulpy murk bomb of the East Coast.

Super hoppy nose, with a big whiff of oranges and dank herbs. A touch floral, with juicy tropical tones and honey in the background.

Flavor is appropriate for a moderate ABV single IPA: it's very hop-forward, fruity and herbal, but it's not over the top and not overly malty. Only moderate bitterness; no astringency. Citrus tones are most prominent, along with bright herbs, with very little dankness considering the nose. Tropical tones are quite distant. It's almost a bit of a WC IPA flavor profile atop a NE IPA mouthfeel (and associated lower bitterness).

Crisp and lively, but smooth. Wonderful feel, a touch thicker than the ABV, which is right with what you'd expect for the style.

This is a wonderful single IPA. I'm glad I got a four pack.

One of the most complex profiles I‘ve tasted in an IPA in a while: great hop profile. El Dorado adds a lot of flavor: pear, tangerine, lots of citrus and more. Not too hoppy, and smooth. Worth checking out.

Canned on Date: 09.21.20 Drank on 10.17.20
Color is a cloudy yellow. Smells of faint Melon & Mango, but very faint
Taste is all bitter hops and slight grapefruit that disaptes fairly fast leaving a real boozy backend.
With as highly rated as this beer is I was expecting so much more, nothing juicy about my can, regret buying the four pack, I know these IPAs degrade quickly but almost a month old should have held up better IMO.

Canned 09/11/20, it pours cloudy bright orange color with a 2 finger thick foamy white head that faded slowly and decent spotty lacing. Smells of orange peel, tangerine, pithy grapefruit, mango, orange creamsicle, tropical fruit and faint biscuit. Very nice aroma.

Flavor is really dank with pineapple and guava juice in addition to the orange peel, tangerine, pithy grapefruit, mango, orange creamsicle abs tropical fruit. Some peppery spices, faint biscuit and mint leaf in the finish, which slides down very easily with a mild bitterness.

Poured from a 16 oz can the golden pineapple colored juice flowed into the tulip glass with foam disappearing as it was filling the glass. The resulting spotty bubbles were about 1/8 in. and then about gone in a minute. The super cloudy pale yellow gold haze reminds me of a cross between apricot puree and pineapple juice.

Lots of tropical fruit on the nose. I get mango, grapefruit, papaya, pineapple and maybe a touch of malt.

Tastes like freshly squeezed grapefruit juice on the palate at first then a blast of big hops and a hit of grapefruit pith dryness. Some sweetness is apparent with a sharp light bitterness to balance it out.

Mouthfeel is full and silky with some stickiness cut by lots of fine carbonation. On the verge of being cloying but kept in check by the bubbles.

I had high aspirations for the local hazy IPA but had to wait a while to try it, since it was always sold out. When I saw at least 3 folks in line today with multi 4 packs, I was excited to grab my 4 pack of 16 oz'ers. It is nice to taste a world class ranked NE IPA. I like it too although I had higher expectations.

Really fun. Like a mashup of a NEIPA and a west coast IPA. Hazy, fruity, but with a pronounced hop bitterness bite. While I love the low bitterness and juiciness of the majority of IPA’s these days, I have missed the bitter character. Glad to have this hybrid.

Hazy white-tinted orange with a finger of soupy, off-white head that quickly settles into a thick crown and leaves almost no lacing.

Mild aroma with a hint of orange juice and not much else.

A little OJ and mango sweetness up front in the taste, which quickly gives way to strong grapefruit-and-green onion bitterness leading into the finish. There’s some pepper and white bread toast in there as well. Very pithy aftertaste.

Slick, creamy mouthfeel with a nice fizz cutting through.

Nice grapefruit bitterness in this makes it very drinkable. Recommended.
