look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Pours a murky dark orange with fine, soapy foam.

Smell is powerful and slightly sweet. You can smell this from 10 feet away. Notes of mango, apricot and vanilla youghurt.

Taste is sweet with notes of vanilla youghurt, mango and peach. Mild bitterness, and just a bit too sweet.

Mouthfeel is medium, soft and pillowy. Well carbonated.

Overall, a great smelling beer that is just a little bit too sweet to be truly elite.

L - Yellow in color with hazy body and three fingers of white head

S - Vanilla, mango, orange creme, lemon peel, malts, subtle bitterness

T - Very sugary with the vanilla and lactose, but has enough hop bitterness to keep you grounded.

F - Light, but still a creamy body

O - Good dessert beer, still want more hp balance, but still enjoyable

A pint can with no date purchased at the brewery on 7/19/17. It was released last week, so it's fresh. Pouring it in a 12oz. tulip glass for the review.

Look- Pours a cloudy pale orange juice color producing a small finger of creamy white foam that quickly settles. There's some heavy lacing left behind.

Smell- Fresh mangoes, passion fruit and some pineapple.

Taste- Juicy mangoes, passion fruit, orange zest and pineapple. There is a slight oatmeal taste in the finish.

Feel- Slick and slightly creamy to start, yielding to some bitterness and a little acidity.

Overall- I'd say this is the best of the few I've tried from them. It's loaded with tropical juice taste albeit a little acidic for me to drink more than one in a session. A four pack of this will make my regular rotation as long as they keep brewing it.

Poured out of a 16 oz. can. Described as a "Milkshake-Style IPA with Mangos". Made with Mosaic hops, lactose, oats, vanilla beans, and mangos. Going for that Tired Hands/Omnipollo swag.

Pours a hazy golden orange color with a finger of bright, white, fluffy head.

Aroma has tons of juicy overly-ripe mango, clementine, herbaceous dankness, light blueberry, juicy pineapple, some lactose sweetness, some vanilla. The vanilla, lactose, and candied sweetness go together to balance out all the mango and hop flavor. Smells very very juicy.

Taste follows the aroma nicely. Lots of mango flesh and juice come through, along with a layer of herbaceous dankness and smaller amounts of pineapple and clementine. The lactose sweetness and vanilla are there as well and go nicely with the juicy, fruity flavors. Just a kiss of resin bitterness on the back end, but mango sweetness outlasts any bitterness there is. Super smooth and juicy.

Medium body. Smooth carbonation. Very soft and creamy. Could be a little more robust, but still hits that milkshake-like creaminess.

A great attempt at this unique and (some may say) weird style. I dig it. It may not be quite at the level as Tired Hands or Omnipollo, but it's a damn good first attempt. They are really onto something. Here's to hoping they keep at this and just the NE style in general.
