Super delicious NEIPA. Whiteish pale gold liquid. Decent head with a slowish fade. Bits of lace here and there.

Nose is deep citrus grove and tropics. Lush to the nose.

Taste is perfect for the style. Juicy tropicals and melon. Low bitterness with a lightly hoppy oiliness in the clean dry finish.

Crisp tingly carbonation. Medium weight and a quenching feel.

A great version the style.

Our first time to try out The Presidents Pub in Washington, PA, 8/5/21. A delightful NEIPA, the aroma is a fizzy pineapple. Ever so slight sweetness and tart lemon up front in the taste, but the flavor really comes out on the finish with lots of lemon rind bitey-ness. Very complex flavors that really add a lot to this!

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

PKG 06/08/21 on label.

A: Hazy light amber with 2-finger off-white frothy head with good retention and copious thick lacing.

S: Strong pineapple and orange hop aromas with a dank, herbal undercurrent

T: Flavor is also strong with pineapple, guava, grapefruit, and orange with dank, weedy flavor in the aftertaste. Bitterness is low and esters are fruity and low-medium intensity.

M: Very soft and smooth with medium body at most and a somewhat dry finish with no alcohol awareness.

O: Excellent NEIPA which does a bit more to give some dryness in the finish and more bitterness to create better balance than most NEIPAs.

Single can from Half Time.
slightly hazy golden color with a very nice frothy head, good retention.
Aroma is very fruity, mango and pineapple come to my mind.
Taste follows the nose with a very fruity character. There is still a bold hop presence, but not biting or overpowering.
Medium body with good carbonation.
Nothing outstanding but a good one nonetheless.

PKG: 3/17/21> purchased, opened and reviewed on 5/8/21

Light straw gold coloration with bits of haze within. A light white foam cap settles down easy, scattered chunks of lace flow down.

Stone fruity style hoppy aromatics with light golden grains and pineapple zest. The hop aroma overall is very fresh, like hand-picked green cones, crushed.

Light and crisp start, stone fruit, earthy zesty grains that become smooth and then finishes easy and clean.

Dig?

3.77/5  rDev -12.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Can dated 3/17:
Near cloudy dull yellow like unripe nectarine flesh. Head is a loosely formed white cap that is sort of like egg whites that are on their way to forming a meringue. Nose is lighter than I expected, though pineapple seems to take the lead, with maybe some mango peel and grapefruit pith sprinkled in.

Taste starts out just on the side of sweet, with unripe pineapple up front, similar to the nose. A generic bitterness joins the slightly pushy carbonation to wash that away and leave a little light pine wood of an aftertaste. A subtle white grapefruit flavor comes to me as I get halfway through the beer. An ok beer, but has less going on than I expected.

Pours a hazy pale straw color with a white head which disappears almost immediately leaving a white lacing. Aroma is wonderful with notes of tropical fruit especially pineapple, mango. Taste is fruity with a zesty twist. Pineapple and lime are pronounced but also well balanced with the mild bitterness of grapefruit and hops. The taste could’ve been more pronounced overall and I felt it was a little watered down from what could be one of the very best NE IPAs.

12 pack copped from Bottle King of Livingston. Pours a bubbly, bright golden hue with a fluffy head of creamy frothing. Ardent aroma replete with notes of ripe green apples and fresh pears. Excellent stuff. Highly recommended.

Pours a hazy amber with a white foamy head that dissipates quickly. On the nose, lots of tropical fruit and citrus with a hint of malt. On the front of the palate, pineapple and mango followed by juicy citrus. Grassy and spicy notes on the back end. Slight bitterness on the finish. Medium bodied with effervescent carbonation. Overall, an impressive NEIPA.

From the can, it pours a hazy amber color with a modest head that soon diminishes to a thin layer and ring. It also leaves lacing. In the nose, it is citrus, mostly pineapple. In the mouth, it is the same, over a malt base. Nice!

Great version of a NEIPA. Perfectly juicy without any bitter after taste. If not for the 7% I could drink this all day everyday.

My first experience with an Industrial arts brew...

Poured into my tulip this beer has an opaque banana/lemon yellow shade with a dense creamy head. Nice staying power and some fluffy sticky lace.

Scent is pine and tropical fruits (pineapple at the forefront) with a dash of spicy hops and a zing of citrus.

Pineapple, mango are right up front. There's a spicy ginger-like note in the background. Not obvious; subtle and intriguing and does a nice job balancing the sweeter fruit notes. Long finish has an interesting sweet / sour / spicy transition. Sweet but balanced. Not a hop bomb nor particularly bitter. A touch of astringency at the end of a long finish but my lips are left sticky and sweet.

Mouth starts creamy with very fine light carbonation and becomes quite juicy in the finish. It's almost like a two part thing.

Drinkability is very high for me.

I love what they did with only 7.1% ABV. This is really a nice IPA. You have my attention Industrial Arts. This is really good stuff.

Had the Torque Wrench and now the Wrench....I like this one slightly better....it's a little less bitter. Cloudy yellow on the pour, with not much head, but some lace. Taste is hoppy and pithy, finish is fruity, smooth and crisp. One of the better NE IPAs I have had. I will be buying again.....

L: pours a nice orange/peach color. One finger head leaving slight lacing on the glass as it goes down
S: nose is fruit, mango sticks out to me, papaya as well
T: the can states notes of “lush and tropical zest” which I have to say is exactly right. There is plenty of tropical fruit flavors to go along with a nice zest/spicy flavor
F: does feel a bit thin but not bad
Overall this is a nice, solid and drinkable NEIPA that I would absolutely buy again

This is a beautiful fruity NEIPA. I was lucky to find some local and got to take it off my wants.
7.1% and crushable should be mutually exclusive. I hope I can find more

I had the pleasure of drinking a can only two weeks old. I poured a pint into a tulip glass.

Look: The beer has a hazy bright orange body that supports a respectable head of homogeneous white foam which recedes into a spotty but lasting film, dressing the glass in healthy lace as it goes.

Smell: The dominant notes of mango and sweet tropical fruit are balanced by a tame dankness with light notes of wet grass and citrus.

Taste: The malt, which shied away from the nose, shows itself in a sweetness that complements the bitterness and acidity of the hops. The finish is remarkably balanced between sweet tropical fruit and citrus rind.

Feel: The carbonation is firm but round. The alcohol lends a viscosity that is perfect for the style.

Overall: Simply outstanding. I’ll have this in the house at all times.
