4.43/5  rDev +8.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A pint can dated 10/17/18 that was refrigerated at and since purchase. Pouring in a Storm Peak 'Dogfish style' IPA glass.

Look- Pours a radiant hazy gold kicking up a thick finger of creamy white foam. Thick lacing clings to the glass.

Smell- Passion/stone fruits, mango, orange zest, a whiff of yeast emerges through the juicy tropical fruit.

Taste- Orange/pineapple juice, passionfruit, mango, a little floral in the finish.

Feel- Creamy smooth and easy drinking with a dry finish that leaves you longing for another sip.

Overall- Just when I thought all these Weldwerks hazebro's were starting to taste the same, I purchased a single of this beer and I'm eating, or rather drinking my words. This is one of the more memorable ones I've recently had. Perhaps the 'mature' 10/17/18 date let the beer condition more and round out? That's been my experience with some of the NE style IPA's. I'll grab a 4 pack if they're still on the shelf.

4.26/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance: yellow-pollen in color with a white 1-finger head that fades quickly to a collar. The body is very hazy yet not totally opaque.

Aroma: hops are super-fresh: pineapple and mango and light fresh-growth spruce. Inviting.

Flavor: earthy. None of the fruit from the nose carries through in the flavor. Light, sweet bready malt.

Mouthfeel: light(er)-medium. A bit light than I’d expect given its 7.1% abv. You could drink several.

Overall: this IPA is better than many of WW’s standard IPAs. Just a bit more flavorful.

4.24/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 16oz can with a canned on date of 10/17/18; into a pub glass.
Appearance- a murky purée straw yellow with a medium thick frothy white head that leaves impressive lacing!
Smell- a juicy assortment of peach, mango, pineapple and with every sip, grapefruit starts to stand out!
Taste- smooth juicy blend of the fruits detected in the nose; very flavorful and tasty!
Feel - nicely carbonated up front with a tangy, bitter finish!
Overall- very solid NEIPA with some very juicy characteristics without coming off as the IPA poured into a glass of fruit juice!
