Look: It pours yellow with some hazing and an off white head. Head retention is very good.

Smell: It has a citrus aroma with floral.

Taste: The flavor has plenty of citrus elements with some tangerine. There are light floral elements in the background with some bread.

Feel: It has a medium full body with a high level of bitterness. There is a harshness in the aftertaste that is most like rind.

Overall, an interesting IPA with a combination of tangerine and citrus. The aftertaste is a bit harsh and the body a bit full.

I assume it must be pretty fresh, given how recently it was added to the BA database, but there's no indication of a date on the pint can. It pours orange-brown, thick and opaque, with less than half a finger of head--not a great sign. Bread, jackfruit, pine, and grapefruit on the nose. Some more tropical notes on the palate, joined by a bit of pepper and spice, but not too much contrast with the initial aroma. I do generally enjoy NEIPAs, but this is not a particularly good one.

A: Pours an extremely murky dark golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and moderate deep golden honey + burnt orange colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense creamy foamy bright white head that slowly reduces to a large patch of thin film covering the entire surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of citrus/grapefruit, citrus/orange rind, citrus/grapefruit pith, herbal, and tropical/melon hops with a hint of spicy/peppery hops. Underneath the hop aromas there is a light to moderate aroma of toasted + biscuit + caramel malts with a moderate amount of caramel sweetness.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of toasted + biscuit + caramel malts with a moderate amount of caramel sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of spicy/peppery hops with slightly stronger than moderate flavors of herbal, citrus/grapefruit, citrus/orange rind, citrus/grapefruit pith, and tropical/melon which impart a light to moderate amount of bitterness which fades away fairly quickly leaving lingering spicy/peppery + citrus hop flavors.

M: Slightly heavier than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth, almost fluffy in the mid-body with a hint of dryness in the finish.

O: Fairly easy to drink with well hidden alcohol but the flavor profile on this hop combination is not my favorite - perhaps a little too much herbal + spicy/peppery hops for what I was hoping for.
