I've had almost every IPA I've wanted to try at this point in my life. Colorado has not seen an IPA like this yet. Brewed in the "NE style" and they nailed it. Hazy Orange/Grapefruit bomb. Creamy mouthfeel. Belongs up there with the like of Trillium & TH.

This beer thanks to Kramerbarthomer!!. This is truly a New England Style IPA with the haze and aggressive hop aroma & flavor. I have had most New England IPAs and this one fits right in. It does not quite have the body of Tree House or Trillium but it is really close. The flavor is truly like smelling and tasting Tropicana OJ. It has more OJ notes than Julius. The world has to know about this beer.

2018 Beeradvocate IPA Fest. One of the better beers at the fest. I would say I remember about 5 beers as being really tasty and this one was definitely one of them. As was it's "extra extra" variant.

Pours a completely hazed multifruit juice orange color, with a big, fluffy head.

Smells of a floral, luscious fruitiness, of oranges entangled into a hint of papaya and peach, which gets topped off by a whiff of lemon peel. The aromas create a heavenly blend of exotic fruits, tied together by a dank water melon quality, creating a beautiful nose.

Drinks very smooth and refreshing, with a medium carbonation caressing the tongue. Soft till the finish, with a nice squeeze of lemon blending into the soft carbonation, making this awesomely great for warm weather.

Tastes of mellow, wet grass coated orange pulp, with peach and lemon amping up the dominant fruitiness. More lemon becomes apparent before the swallow, gently soothed by the creamy mouthfeel, featuring a juicy orange flavor till the end. Fruits blend into a part white bread dough, part toffee malt foundation, which adds to their juicy appearance. Finishes with a nice lemony dry note, while the fruits remain on the palate till the end.

Fantastic, fruity, juicy IPA reminding me a lot of Julius with just a tad more lemon zing during the finish, while producing the same world class mouthfeel and fruitiness.

Weldwerks (sp) does MN. Well, what the hell. 16 oz. can.

Less hazy, more cloudy, with a predictable wash of citrus & tropical notes coming off the surface.

Juicy Bits of what? Perhaps oranges. Perhaps grapefruit. Perhaps mango. Perhaps Ecuador. Perhaps a lot of raw cane sugar. Thankfully, there is a bit of bitterness mid-palate to keep this from going into sugar overdose territory. Thick. Half the can went to my wife, so that worked for me.

Not as sickeningly sweet as this genre is becoming, with some nice balance. Pretty good brew.

2-week old can poured into a Teku glass.

Attractive yellow-orange body with a very nice, opaque (but not chalky or turbid) haze. One finger of bright white head that collapsed pretty quickly but left some really wonderful lacing rings down the glass.

Aromas are somewhat mild (too cold?), but there's a solid dankness there. Sweet citrus juice, lots of wet grass, maybe a touch of pine sap, and very biscuity. Definitely a little greeness on the nose. I will say, as this beer warms up the sweetness and citrus juiciness really start to pop in a positive way (though the other notes don't change dramatically). Adds a little more "wow" to the aroma profile.

Wonderful sweet note up front, followed by some grapefruit pith, berries, lemon tartness, granola, and lemongrass. Little bit of green astringency and a fairly dry finish. No traces of alcohol. Again, a somewhat mild overall flavor profile, but solid and very drinkable. Amazing burp aftertaste.

Feel is silky smooth and a little more substantial than the look would suggest. Really, really nice combination of refreshing and substantive. Perfect level of carbonation.

Solid beer all around, but not exceptional. Comes off (to me) like a very safe, down-the-line NE IPA representation, and is certainly highly drinkable. Would have loved to see them add a strong personality note somewhere on the nose or tongue to take it up a notch off a very solid base beer.

The pour reveals a straw colored beer with a dense bone white head that is the definition of a milkshake IPA - if you dove into a barrel of this, you wouldn’t be able to see your fingers two inches in front of your face.

So wear goggles when drinking this beer, because after you get a whiff and a taste of it, you may decide that diving into a barrel of this excellent beer is the proper course of action.

The nose is crammed with dank citrus aromas that include grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, and spicy passion fruit.

Those aromas are amplified on the taste - this beer is an unrelenting citrus flavor ride. My first beer from WeldWerks, I’m very impressed with this juice bomb.

Great hazy orange color in the glass. You can smell the citrus flavor. Nice and hoppy with a sweet orange mango flavor. Nice beer,... would have it again.
