From a 16oz can dated 9/26/22 so not the freshest. Pretty average. Probably better if it had been fresher.

1 pint can dated 9/12/22 (1 month old) brewed in the great city of Waltham, Mass. Got it from Costco in the same city.

Fluffy one finger foam with retention
Hazy golden yellow.
Aroma of tropical fruits.
Sweet (dah!) with some hop taste. I'm not a fan of IPA but this one is great.

Had from a can and it pours cloudy yellow gold with a nice foamy 2 finger thick head that faded slowly and left excellent lacing. Smells and tastes of tropical fruits, grapefruit, tangerine, orange peel, floral notes, biscuit/sweet malt, some hints of pine and light spices like tea leaf. Fine level of bitterness and an average mouthfeel for an IPA.

16oz can served in a stemless wineglass. Can is undated to the best of my knowledge. Received from @WunderLlama in NBS BIF #14 activities.

Pours a hazy amber with a big poofy head. Medium amount of fine active carbonation. Eventually the head collapses into a thick clumpy ring that seems to be clinging for its life to the side of the glass. Smell is marshmallow fluff, tropical fruit, flowers, citrus rind, and resin.

Taste is still somewhat creamy, nice mixture of citrus and tropical without seeming overly juicy or sweet, moderate to strong resinous bitter finish.

Mouthfeel is somehow both fluffy and dry. This is a really nice beer.

Pours murky orange color, mostly opaque. Dense sweet aroma with tropical citrus notes. Tastes full flavored with orange, papaya and a little grapefruit. Feel is very soft and think bodied. Damn good!

The can pours a clear, deep golden color until the yeast swings it to a cloudy orange.the aroma is sweet with floral and citrus aspects.
The flavor is of fresh, sweet orange and mango ( not a lactose sweetness).
The body is light.
This is a flavorful brew, quite enjoyable.

16oz can into a pint glass. Canned 10/18/21, so 3 months old.

Looks standard in the glass. Hazy orange juice colored body. Bright white head persists in good form throughout leaving pretty good lacing throughout.

Mixed fruit aroma, a little musty.

On tasting, quite juicy, good hop prescence. Significant warmth in the back of the throat, surprised it's only a 6.5abv.

Mouth closer to full than medium, finish dull fruit with some warmth.

Overall, above average for the style. Decent drink. Would certainly have again.

Thanks to el_bobbo for this one.

Pours a dark, drab orange color. Completely opaque and thick. Thick, few finger off-white head forms on the beer. Dissipates quickly leaving just a thin layer of foam on top of the beer.

Aroma has notes of tropical fruits, strawberries, with a slight floral character. Aroma comes across rather sweet.

Taste follows the nose with notes of tropical fruits, strawberries, and some dank pine painted on a light crackery malt backbone. Subtle bitterness is present on the back end, but its barely noticeable. There is a sweet creaminess to the flavor profile.

Feel is medium to full bodied, moderate carbonation.

Overall a very nice NEIPA
