Notes: Our take on a NE IPA; murky, hazy, low bitterness and absolutely delicious.

a good not great neipa here, dark enough for the style bit still a light amber, dense hazy, one finger white head with decent retention, sweet citrus fruit aroma, quite floral too, beer is citrusy and sweet, lot of lemon and lime, orange, some mango, not particularly juicy, tart almost, caramel, hint of vanilla, pretty floral and herbal, beer is medium bodied, light to medium carbonation, super soft, no real bitterness to report, a decent effort

Pours a hazy, orange coloration with a small, frothy head. Smells of light biscuity malt and strong tropical hop notes of mango and pineapple, as well as lighter orange and apricot. Taste is a great balance of light biscuity malt and tropical, citrus and stone fruit hops, being dominated by somewhat acidic mango and gooseberry, pineapple and some, zesty orange and lime peel notes and just a hint of sweet apricot. Finishes with a light bitterness and some mango, gooseberry and lime peel lingering in the aftertaste. Soft mouthfeel with a medium body and carbonation.

This is quite a zesty and acidic NEIPA that is dominated by mango and lime peel, bringing to mind "Buttermilk Fresh" lemon icecream. Rather juicy in its own way actually, with a good mouthfeel, but that zesty and acidic character is not going to be for everyone. Takes a little getting used to, but rather enjoyable at the end of the day.

A 440ml can, with a best before date of 26th March 2019. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.

Appearance: A hazy orange colour with a one finger off white head that dissipated fairly quickly and left only sparse to no lacing.

Aroma: Very citrusy, grapefruit rind, orange zest, melon, pine and hints of mango.

Taste: Bitter, citrusy, grapefruit rind, orange peel, pine, straw and grass with a hint of mango and a lasting citrus rind finish.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall: It’s fruity, largely citrus, but I wouldn’t say that it was juicy, and the bitterness was also definitely stronger than I’d prefer in an NEIPA. It was still drinkable, but not what I’d expect from the top NEIPAs.

Turbid dirty blonde with rimming sandstone head. 4
Apricot, grapefruit and crackery malts. 3.75
Bread dough, a dirty little yeast edge, some peach, then pineapple, light tangerine, passionfruit and evergreen hops. Dry carbonic finish. 3.75
Soft, almost medium, slight chew. 4

December 5 2017 BBD - 7 weeks in the bottle? Self-declared New England IPA, and it’s got the creamy body, esters, and cloudy look. What it doesn’t have is hops: only the most muted light tropical note struggle to dig out from under a seriously earthy yeast. Definitely misses the juice this style should have. Given Boundary’s usual quality, disappointing.

Still waiting for a true NEIPA from the UK… 4
