Good
Notes: Double IPA hopped intensely and exclusively with New Zealand Wai-iti. The aroma on this one is so insane. It's like straight up fresh peaches and apricots with a fresh squeezed lime. The flavor profile follows with a tiny of touch of spice. Virtually no bitterness.

This review is based on a 5 month old can recieved as an extra and disregards the beer description.

Pale gold in color, cloudy, and a half inch of head that settles to nice film. Significant lacing as it drinks down.

Nose is a mixture of mango, peach, orange, bubble gum, and subtle sweetness.

Taste is muddled tropical fruit, very minor sweetness, hop bitterness, and malt.

Mouthful is creamy and light. Carbonation is medium to high. Finish is dry.

Surprised by the other reviews here on the quality of this beer. I think it is a solid NE IPA however after reading the description I can see where the problem lies. Much similar to other beers out there, the description is half the appeal and when it sounds great but doesn't live up to it problems arise. This seems to be the case here. Take the write up and throw it away and just try the beer.

Usually I don't bash a beer, but what were they on when they came up with the description for this? It's tastes nothing of peaches and limes.

Cloudy orange, thick white head and spotty lacing. Aroma of adjunct lager and spicey hop. Notes of crushed aspirins, rubber bands left in isopropyl alcohol and hops added after dropped in dirt. Forget the feel I can't get past the bitter horrible linger. This was just bad and it's a shock coming from this brewery. This shouldn't have been canned and sold.

This was a huge mistake. Plastic, pungent, burning heat.

Appearance: An extremely cloudy pour, with a two inch head capping the honey colored liquid; active lacing action

Smell: Lemon-lime forward, with peaches underneath

Taste: A load a citric bitterness overwhelms the taste buds, with lemon and lime tones dominant; some peach elements underneath but the mid-palate is rather herbal in essence; quite bitter through the finish, and the aftertaste leaves a puckery sensation

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I was interested to see what could be done with the Wai-iti hops but I don't think this beer displays their character in their best light

Pours a light cloudy orange with white head. Aroma of apricot, peach, nectarine, and a slight touch of lemon and lime. Flavor follows with a little more bitterness on the finish than expected for a Veil beer, but it is not offending. Its just different. The Wai-Iti hops are a new experience for me as I have not had a beer where they are the only hop used. The feel is on the low end of medium with medium carbonation. Overall, I can see this beer being really good with a tweak or two. It is not in any way bad, but there is some room for improvement.

LOVE Veil Brewing but this one underwhelmed me. They say its brewed with no bitterness but i disagree; its as if the hoppiness is absent but the bitterness is still their in full force, which makes the beer seem a bit unbalanced, especially on the back end. Still a great beer and a good one to try from the best new brewery...ever?
