NEIPA Style brew, not English Pale Ale, 12 oz serving sampled at the Superstition Blues and Brews festival 3-16-19.

Beer was served a murky orange with a solid white head initially.

Nose is fresh squeezed orange and grapefruit juice, very nice.

Taste is pretty well balance between the pale malt base and the infusion of orange and mango hops. Finish has a nice touch of bittering rind.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and refreshing.

Overall a solid NEIPA that is pretty close to being sessionable. Crushable for sure!

Smell: not a lot of aroma compared to other IPAs
taste: low bitterness, sweet
mouthfeel: fizzy, good follow through
good beer free ok, not to repeat, but not to look for

On tap. Billed as NE style hazy. It isn't the turbid thick stuff. More of a simple unfiltered IPA. But certainly a juice bomb. Lots of tropical citrus for sure. Plenty of backend sweet too. Feel is nowhere close to the hazy game either. Overall, as a regular IPA this is well above average. The billing as NE haze sets poor expectations imo.
