Boom, indeed...

This might very well be my first NEIPA and I think I get what the hubbub is all about. Nice coloration, though there’s just a little foam, dissipates quickly, and no lacing. The smell has a strong scent of grapefruit without the bitterness, which translates to the taste. Mouthfeel is what impressed me the most - a creamy texture unlike I have experienced in a while with an IPA. Overall, I enjoyed this and will be on the lookout for more moving forward.

Light amber color, multiple hops including Mosaic, Ella and Falconer's Flight, plus spelt, oats and wheat malts give it a light freshness. The taste has some complexity--big citrus and tropical fruit notes. Delicious!

On tap at The Cove in York, PA. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a nice off-white head. Initial impression is surprisingly smooth. It's somewhat citrus-y with floral notes, but definitely not what I would consider a NEIPA. It's good and very drinkable, but don't get your taste buds all in a lather for a juicy citrus bomb. Very drinkable. Alcohol is dangerously well hidden. Mouthfeel is pretty smooth and medium chewy; carbonation is perfect. finish is smooth and dry. Very enjoyable, but not my impression of a NEIPA.
