On tap at The Veil a few days after it was released.

Grassy, which is attributed to their house yeast. Hops seem muted compared to their other IIPA releases. Had a crucial taunt afterwards to confirm this. Good. Not great.

Pale straw yellow color, completely opaque. Thick white head. Smells of orange juice and other citrus, with some floral notes. Super juicy flavor, with tropical citrus, orange and grapefruit. No much bitterness, a little bit of resin in the aftertaste. Body is medium with crisp carbonation. Drinks fairly easily for the higher abv. Overall a very good NE IPA.

Poured from a 16oz can into a tulip glass (1 week old). Appearance is hazy orange brown with one finger thick head with moderate retention. Smell is earthy hops and orange puree but not as complex or juicy as some other Veil releases. Taste follows the nose with very good balance and low to moderate sweetness and balance. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, very soft and moderate carbonation coming through on the finish. It is almost too soft with maybe too much carbonation up front.

Overall, this is a good IPA from Veil and I may even say very good from another brewery. However, it fell a little flat compared to the last two IPAs I've had from them. There is good earthy hop flavor and some juiciness, but it was missing something ... complexity, a crisp finish. Having said all of that, this is still another enjoyable beer from Veil.

Appearance - Pours hazy orange color with thick white head. Sticky lacing around the glass.

Aroma - Tons of juice. Mango, orange, pineapple a hint of the alcohol.

Taste - Super juicy tons of tropical fruit, little burn from the alcohol lots of hops and bitterness.

Feel - Medium body, well carbonated and pretty dry finish.

Overall - Excellent DIPA wonderful flavors and easy drinking for 8.5%.
