Notes: Welcome to the evolution of style. When we set out to design Boomsauce years ago we knew we wanted a fruit forward, unfiltered and incredible IPA. However, this was a time before Hazy, New England IPAs has even entered the lexicon. As the sub category evolved so did expectations of what it meant to be a Hazy, Juicy IPA. So we decided to evolve Boomsauce along with the style. We kicked the ABV up a notch, adjusted the malt balances and hit it hard with our favorite hops. The results are an incredibly Juicy and Hazy derivative of Boomsauce that continues to define the category.

Tap at River road tavern.
I wish I'd noticed this was a 9 dollar pour because I surely would have passed. Sweet bready maltiness citrus and tropical notes. A bit of medicinal plastic solvent phenol's are distracting. Meh.

I picked up a 4pck of this from my local meijer store. It poured a hazy orangish with white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent had citrus fruit notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with tropical fruit presence. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall its a solid beer.

L: dark yellow in appearance with a full murky appearance. About 2 fingers of a dense white cap that retained nicely settling into a frothy ring around the Beverage. Generous amounts of lacing coat the glass.
S: mild but very pleasant. Mango, peach, bubble gum, lemon and grapefruit all present with an evident sweetness. Zero hop character on the nose.
T: juice bomb, leaning on stonefruit and citrus as the major flavors. Zero hop character and no booze flavor. A proper NEIPA juice bomb.
F: damn good. Full, soft, creamy and pillowy. Booze masked really well staying true to its name.
O: I’m enjoying it. It’s a big boi, but worth a shot. I’m glad to try. Cheers!

16 oz can poured into a stemless wine glass.

Cloudy deep orange color. 1 inch white head. Spotty lacing.

Smells of sweet malt and tropical fruit. Taste follows-sweet fruits, candied malt.

Smooth and easy to drink.

Good but the sweetness builds and ultimately detracts. Needs more bittering hops to balance.

16 FL. OZ. can
Served in a stemless wine glass

This beer pours amber and quite turbid. Chunks of yeast are visible. It is topped with a couple inches of tan head that leaves rings of lacing.

It has a nice tropical fruit aroma with hints of citrus.

The taste is tropical fruit with hints of grapefruit and pine in the back end.

Full bodied with a creamy mouthfeel

This is a nice beer. It is not the freshest can in the world, but it has held up well with around a month and a half of age on it.

look is hazy golden yellow. Smell is sweet tropical citrus. Taste follows nose and stays sweet throughout. Feel is medium, Overall a nice NE IPA but I wouldn't go out of my way to find it.

Canned on 4/24/19. 16oz can poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy and cloudy yellowish with a creamy eggshell white head that falls leaving great retention and nice lacing. It looks just like orange juice and your typical "New England IPA". The aromas are floral along with tropical and citrus fruits. Subtle hints of fresh bread. Some grass. Malts are there. The flavors basically follow the nose for the most part. More floral notes. Some orange and grapefruit along with some pineapple, peach and apricot. Subtle hints of pine in the mix. Pretty solid bitterness for the style. Nice hop flavors. Malts do their thing. Finishes juicy. Mild warmth in the finish, but the alcohol is ultimately well hidden. Mouthfeel is full-bodied with moderate carbonation. It's very fluffy, slick and smooth.

This is a pretty solid "New England IPA". It's everything that you would expect from the style. Nice hop flavors. The craftsmanship is on point. It's enjoyable and fun to drink. I like it.

16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 4/3/2019. Pours opaquely hazy deep golden amber/light orange color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice dense spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tangerine, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, blueberry, gooseberry, citrus peel/rind, wood, mint, anise, peppercorn, pine, wheat, cracker, biscuit dough, light honey/toast, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical/fairly earthy hops and bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, blueberry, gooseberry, citrus peel/rind, wood, mint, anise, peppercorn, pine, wheat, cracker, biscuit dough, light honey/toast, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, woody, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, blueberry, gooseberry, citrus peel/rind, wood, mint, anise, peppercorn, pine, wheat, cracker, biscuit dough, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/fairly earthy hops and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and no lingering hop astringency after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/sticky, and fairly resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Minimal warming alcohol for 8.8%. Overall this is an awesome NEDIPA. All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/fairly earthy hops and bready malt flavors; very smooth and dangerously easy to drink for the ABV, with the mellowly bitter/resinous/drying finish; nicely soft, and not aggressive. Assuming the same flavor hops as the base beer: Ella, Mosaic, Falconers Flight, and Amarillo. Extremely juicy, and fairly dank/earthy hops; with a great balanced wheat/oat/malt backbone. Lightly sweet from lingering resin dryness. A really enjoyable offering, and impressive style example as expected; but did not prefer it over the regular.
