Notes: A pithy explosion of aroma and flavor, beyond hazy, and hopped with Mosaic and Citra to the point of stickiness.

Look...Exceptional pale yellow with a frothy white head
Smell...Citrus hop papaya and grapefruit. A definitive hop presence even if a little feint
Taste...Juice off the bat with a good amount of sweetness that well rounds the corners and balances this beer. A velvety bitterness helps this beer a lot
Feel...a full but juicy texture with a medium to low carbonation. A small amount of lacing on the glass
Overall...I had this beer many times and finally I got around to the review. An excellent beer tat is well crafted and will continue to drink fresh. Seems they are always charging a lot for this one and not that fresh so I pass on it. All in all this is very good and like everything I have gotten from the Garnerville NY boys and girls

Industrial Arts Wrench IPA is a hazy beer advertised with a lush and tropical zest. It poor is a very pale hazy yellow with a white head that clings to the glass. The nose is strong citrus, able to be smelled away from the glass. The flavor is powerful sweetness and citrus fruit. There's a little note of hop bitterness on the back end, but this is a dangerously drinkable. I would like to have a little more body, as it tends to disappear as quickly as it arrived.

Hop bitterness, but smooth and very passable. A little more flavor would make this great.

16oz can.
L: Hazy, pale orange with a thick head that collapses to a ring with a few spots of lacing.
S: Faint tropical fruit.
T: Grapefruit pith, orange pith, lemon zest, mango, papaya. Little to no bitterness.
F: Smooth and dry-ish.
O: A full-on juicy IPA but with a light and refreshing mouthfeel. Very approachable… which is ridiculous (and dangerous) for 7.1% ABV. I’d give a higher rating if this easy-drinking brew had a more manageable alcohol level.

Creamy citrus yummy easy to over do, all the things better said by other reviewers. Can't tell much diff between this wrench and some of the more expensive and harder for me to get my hands on other half brews I've enjoyed.

Light body, with a good bitterness and fruit with warming. The aroma is a little weak. More viscosity and strong aroma make the beer more interesting. Best at 52° plus.

I've tried all the wrench series and I like wrench the best. It was tropical, esp pineapple, mango. Not much else to say, one of my favorite NEIPA's.

5 weeks since canning date, and may have been a factor as this was underwhelming. Still a decent neipa, but not bursting with any yummy flavors typical of the style these days, nor nearly as good as many local offerings. Might try this again if found fresher just to see if the ba score can be justified

As close as you can get to a perfect beer without being one of the big 5. Easy to drink a few too many, but gets the job done with just a couple. I read the owner of the brewery actually didn’t want to create “another” IPA when he made Industrial Arts Brewery, and in true ironic fashion ended up with one of the best you can get. If you’ve never tried it, pick up a 4 pack or a 12 pack today.

Excellent head production; nice lacing and decent retention. Beer is, as advertised, quite hazy and nearly opaque, lemon-yellow in hue.

Amazingly juicy, bright, and hoppy on the nose, along with a touch of grainy pale malt. Fruit notes are a blend of citrus and tropical: orange, lemon, grapefruit, melon, mango, pineapple. It's very nearly without flaw.

Creamy mouthfeel, with very little sting; very nice for the modest (by IPA standards) ABV.

Very juicy up front, primarily pineapple, lemon, mango, and vanilla cream. Moderately dank on the middle, a note not revealed by the nose. Finish is once again juicy, with the same notes as earlier, along with a bit of a lingering green herbal quality. Fairly low bitterness; no astringency.

Overall, this is an excellent IPA, well worth its high regard and rating. Very high drinkability and great flavor. It's only moderately complex, and the amount of dankness you experience will surely vary based on freshness, but it's a lovely experience: juice-forward and creamy.

12 oz can.

Pours a hazy pale gold with a 2 finger head that settles into halo atop the beer. Leaves some splotchy lacing.

Lots of citrus on the nose, namely orange juice, grapefruit and lemon candy. Pineapple follows with some fresh peach and a hint of earthy pine.

The flavor flips the script a bit. Pineapple and peach, with some melon upfront, followed by a wave of grapefruit, orange, and lemon zest. There's some dank, weedy, vegetal shenanigans on the finish.

The feel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Slick and oily, but nicely drinkable.

Overall, this is a very good NEIPA. Mosaic and citra can make for some dank, gym sock oniony ass flavors, but those are nowhere to be found here. Instead there's a nice mix of tropical and citrus notes with just enough weedy danksauce to give you a contact high.

16oz can served in a big snifter. Dated 09/03/21. Bought it somewhere in NYC and shipped it home to myself.

Pours hazy pale yellow with a fairly small head that dissipates pretty quickly. Smell is bright citrus pith.

Taste is mostly down the same path as the aroma. Citrus pith and moderate resin bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium leaning toward thick, slight grittiness. Overall...it's perfectly fine.

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.
