Very orange with a very bright white head. Head is super thick. Nose is pure hop aroma, fragrant. Taste is citrus with a very forward bite that follows though the entire palate. Very good Beer.

From the Carwyn "One" subscription pack, December 2022. Drunk in January 2023.

L: Lustrous, hazy, yellow-orange with a bright white, thin head. carbonation can be seen at the stem of the IPA glass but other than that the murk hides all.

S: Quite the juice bomb, with orange, orange peel and guava. Sundry other tropical fruits lurk beneath the orange.

T: Taste is bitter, piney and orangey. There's hop burn, but the mosaic has not pushed the beer into shampoo flavour territory. At the end of the swallow, there are crushed Vitamin C tablets, and the beer subsequently finishes sweet. On top of that sweetness, there's retronasal grapefruit bitterness, an ever-so-slight tart note, and warmth in the throat after the swallow. All facets of the beer work well here.

M: Mouthfeel is quite soft and carbonation is low. All is in accord with the beer here. There's a soft, chalky crumbliness to the bitterness at the end that again reminds me of disintegrating vitamin C tablets. I suspect it's a result of significant dry-hopping but that's just a guess.

O: This is a nice, juicy beer. That tart, juicy note makes the beer quite refreshing after the bitterness and subsequently the beer was finished before I had expected. The drinkability of this one and its relatively moderate ABV (6.7%) make this a dangerous beer.

Cheers!

Cloudy, dirty gold color. Moderate head which leaves some inconsistent blanketing lace.

A dry aroma that reminds me of sneaker rubber...seriously. Light earthiness.

True to its name, there's a very brief fruity flavor and then it dries right out with some alcohol. The lower carbonation gives the body a bit of a watery mouthfeel. The finish is straight-up bitterness, not overwhelming but certainly strong enough to dominate the aftertaste.

I have not had many Weldwerks offerings, but this one is a world class winner!

16 oz can from Tavour. Hazy golden, small fizzy head, light glow. Citrusy aroma, grapefruit peel. Taste is more citrus, mellow and very juicy. Light tang at the finish, more citrus peel. This is exceptional!

Enjoyed this one from a 16 oz can shared through a swap. Juicy Bits is an outstanding NEIPA. Great taste, nice lacing, and a good nose. Would highly recommend this brew!

Poured from a 16 oz can into a pint glass; no birth date. Pours hazy-ish yellow with steady two fingers of head. Citrusy sweet - juicy - with decent carbonation. Equally sweet smell of citrus on the nose. Very good. Respect.

16 oz can.

Pours a hazy yellow gold color with a finger of sudsy white head. Great head retention. Leaves a crown of lacing around the top of the glass.

Lots of melon, passion fruit and orange up front, followed by some overripe mango, pineapple, and stone fruit.

The flavor brings notes of orange, grapefruit pith, melon, mango, and pineapple. There's plenty of stone fruit and mixed berries with a rindy, bitter finish.

The feel is medium bodied with lower carbonation. Very soft and easily drinkable.

Overall, this is a great NEIPA that is full of fruity hop flavor whilst still retaining good balance and drinkability.

An excellent juicy NEIPA, not a juice bomb but balanced with modest bitterness on the finish.

Appearance is hazy, on the light side golden yellow.

Smell is juicy, papaya, orange, stone fruit up front but not overwhelming.

Feel is light on carbonation. Thin head.

Taste initially follows the nose, papaya, orange, stone fruit forward, light grapefruit in the back. A moderate amount of bitterness comes in on the tail and lingers.

Pours a hazy orange with soft, soapy head.

Smell is juicy and crisp. Notes of citrus, mango, melon, pineapple and orange sorbet. Slightly dank and sweet.

Taste is juicy, fruity and crisp with a soft bitterness. Notes of orange, mango, melon, grapes and apricots. Perfect balance and great levels of flavor.

Mouthfeel is medium, soft and pillowy with good carbonation.

Overall, a fantastic NE IPA, lives up to the hype.

Cloudy, medium light orange, with a little milky look. Orange pulp, peel and all, with a light toast, caramelized, off-dry, malt aroma. Tangy, mandarin orange/tangelo peel flavor, with quite a bit of bite and some light toast malt in the background.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Pours a nearly completely hazy (10% remaining clarity) with a strong white head that laces the glass. SRM of 7-8. (4.00)

Aroma: Strong aromas of orange citrus, pineapple, papaya, mango, passionfruit, peach, and some underlying tropical melon with hints of berry. Mostly orange mixed with tropical melon. (4.00)

Flavor: Strong flavors of orange citrus, papaya, mango, and tropical cantloupe and honeydew. Very tropical with a slightly resinous orange and tropical finish. Minimal bitterness. No hop burn and hides the alcohol well.

Feel: Heavier body for the ABV and low to moderate carbonation with a sweet and slightly resinous finish. No hop burn detected. (4.75)

Compared to TG King Sue 4/10/22: Pours slightly darker and clearer. Less sediment floating in the glass. Milder aromas. More tropical orange and honeydew/cantaloupe tropical melon flavors. Less orange citrus peel and flower. A lighter and cleaner body.

Compared to WeldWorks Pillow Cannon 4/16/22: Pours an identical appearance with similar aromas. More orange creamsicle. Less citrus, pineapple juice and pith. Less bitter for a more smooth finish. Similar overall though.

Compared to Blackstack Loud Bits 7/7/22: Pours a similar, darker, clearer appearance. Milder aromas. More orange juice and rind. Less tropical melon, honeydew flavor. Cleaner, dryer.

Compared to Juicy Bits DDH Galaxy 10/2022: Pours clearer. Milder aromas. More vague orange and buttery notes. More daicetyl. Less tropical and fruity. Winner: DDH Galaxy

Compared to Equillibrium Hubble Palate 10/2022: Pours clearer. Milder aromas. More vague orange and buttery notes. More daicetyl. Less fruity grapefruit and mango. Winner: EQ

Overall: A very tropical IPA, but not World Class in my opinion. I would describe it as having strong and tropical orange with tropical honeydew and cantaloupe melon flavors. The flavors itself aren't that unique here, and actually are similar to many other macro-IPAs.
Slightly buttery from diacetyl. The flavor here isn't anything new, me but the lack of hop burn (that is is so many beer with this flavor) is nice and allows the tropical orange and melon flavors to show forth. (Rating: 3.88)

Served from tap in a snifter at Consume.

Pours a hazy nigh-orange juice topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises fresh citrus zest, grass, sweet flowers, honey-laden biscuit, and a touch of passionfruit. The taste brings in more of the same, the juicier bits (appropriately enough) leading the way and the more bitter elements playing catch-up. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Pretty solid hazy.
