A-Bright yet hazy yellow with a nice pronounced head that lingers
S-Fruit and sweet candy upfront aroma with a layer of dank and citrus hop character underneath
M-Medium body with a fullness that is nice, carbonation is medium high and lends a peppery effervescence on the tongue
T-Really well balanced bitter-sweet level with a crisp finish that is pleasant. There is a spice that remains around the gums in an aftertaste type of way
O-Great beer, nuff said, go try it!

Had this on 2018-08-11 in Columbia, PA from a 12oz canned on 2017-11-07

A - Very hazy gold with a 2-finger off-white head that sticks around, leaving nice lace.

S - Peach, pineapple, biscuit, lightly dank. Mild but pleasant.

T - Peach, pineapple, orange zest, celery, white pepper, biscuit, mild-moderate dankness and bitterness. Some fruit sweetness in the finish provides balance to the dank/bitter flavors.

M - Medium body and carbonation. Resinous and lightly prickly.

O -Enjoyed the balanced flavors and restrained dankness and bitterness. Fruit flavors came through without being cloying. Well done.

Thick looking, with a golden orange hue; looks almost like watered down orange juice. Bright up front, with the IBU's not showing up until the last second. Then you'll get the pine/citrus hop profile which balances well with the up front brightness.

This is a good IPA that I'd be happy paying top shelf price for if it were available to me regularly.

Canned 06/21/18. Obvious citrus-dominated aroma. Grapefruit, with other tropical fruits mixing in. A bit of pineapple. Hazy, turbid orange color with a nice white head, that disappears vanishingly fast, leaving lacing and a thin sparse bubbly cap. The look is excellent with the exception of the vanishing head. Smooth mouth feel. Mild and juicy initial taste, transitioning to noticeable bittering in the middle, and finishing with a fresh tropical fruit taste, with bittering again asserting in the aftertaste. The transitioning of the taste from the beginning, to the middle, into the finish, and then the aftertaste is wonderfully interesting. Just when you think it is done, it changes again.

First had poured from 12-oz. can into nonic pint. This is light-bodied, but still a balanced, traditional East Coast IPA, despite the “hazy” nod to the NEIPA.

Canned on 5/15/2018. Poured into pint glass 6/23/18. Hazy orangey yellow. I smelled the citrus when I poured. Citrus, melon smell to the nose. White head that left quickly. Taste did not follow nose. Bitter, dank, earthy at first, finished with grapefruit earthy taste. Mouthfeel - leaving a film on tongue. Nice lacing on the glass. I like it. Would I purchase again. No. Fun to try new stuff. Cheers!

12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 12/12/2017. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy deep golden amber/light orange color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of tangerine, orange juice, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, honey, white bread dough, light caramel, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of big tangerine, orange juice, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, honey, white bread dough, light caramel, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very mild pine, herbal, floral, grassy, zesty bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, orange juice, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, honey, white bread dough, light caramel, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance; and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is great. Minimal warming alcohol for 8%. Overall this is a very nice NEIPA. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the minimally bitter/drying finish. Great soft feel for the style. Very juicy and lightly dank hop complexity; with a balanced bready malt backbone. Not overly sweet/heavy. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example. Held up well considering the can dating.

Good, but maybe overhyped due to the collaboration of War Pigs, 3 Floyds, and Mikkeller.

A bit hazy, white head, receded fast.
Not much aroma. Very faint melon? Maybe I have an impaired sniffer.
Clean taste up front with hint of hop fruitiness, cat pee finish.

Maybe I'm feeling jaded by all the IPA out there.
