4.2/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

a: hazy orange color with a hint of light caramel. large, frothy 2-3 finger head

s: big hit of crackers upfront, followed by loads of pineapple and tart strawberry. some mango puree in here as well, along with something reminiscent of apple sauce. a hint of sweet caramel and lemons towards the end

t: cantaloupe and sweet lemons upfront, followed by pineapple and mango. sweet oranges and a hint of guava. a little bit of bready malts, but not much

m: medium mouthfeel. not as fluffy as some other NEIPA's, but you can feel the volume in the mouth. carbonation is low

o: this is a nice one. it doesn't have a cornucopia of hop flavors, but what it does have is nice and works well together - and not too raw like many others in the style. way easy to drink of the abv. a very harmonized NEIPA. definitely tastes like fruit juice

Looks like pineapple juice, opaque, not just cloudy. Nice creamy/foamy head. Smells like a total fruit bomb. I could smell tropical fruits as soon as I cracked the 16oz can. Much pineapple,citrus,fresh hay,wet cracker. Tastes like pineapple,peach,cracker,nice hop bite. Feels well carbonated, silky, semi-dry finish. Overall this is a seriously delicious NEIPA. Awesome job !

Smooth, slightly citrusy but extremely easy to drink. Looks nice, cloudy but not overwhelmingly so and has a subtle but pleasant smell. I will buy this many times in the future.

Had this on 2018-12-20 at the brewery and again on 2018-12-28 in Columbia, PA from a fresh 16 oz can.

A - Hazy straw with a 2-finger white head and very good lace.

S - Sweet, ripe pineapple, peach, melon, cracker, flowery, hop bud smell without dankness.

T - Tropical. Pineapple, juicy-sweet tangerine, melon, wheat cracker, touch of pepper, aspirin and pine, mild bitterness (about like Helles). Finishes with tangerine zest, melon, a bit of strawberry and mild wheat-malt sweetness. Delicious, balanced, awesome.

M - Medium body and light-medium carbonation. Fairly soft but there's a bit of resin too. Dries nicely.

O - A really excellent beer. One of the best NEIPAs I've ever had. So many flavors that I enjoy in an IPA but with the softness and drink-ability of a Kellerbier. Impressive.

Big thanks to Anthony for this one

Pint can dated 12/04/18 #59

Poured into a tulip pint at around 44F

Pours a murky pale orange with a noticeable green cast to it. Two fingers of fluffy white head sit atop, leaving sticky lacing as it reduces.

Nose is out-of-this-world juicy. Massive guava. Ripe pineapple, ripe mango, strawberries and kiwi, lychee, even some lime zest. It just smells like a tropic hop SMOOTHIE.

Palate - Man, after that nose, it still manages to not disappoint. On the palate, I get orange juice, with some bitterness from the rind, some pineapple and mango, definite fruity berry notes (I will bet physical currency with anyone who tells me there isn't Mosaic in here), and then big, dank, earthy grassy notes. Moderately bitter in a very fresh, green way. It's also beautifully balanced with its malt base. It's not sweet like honey, no, in fact, for the style, this is actually surprisingly dry. The dryness really let's those fresh, fruity hop expressions shine through, without being smothered by sticky malt sugars. A citrus rind bitterness builds at the tail end of the finish, making you think it will last forever, but then that bitterness just lifts off and away, with a friendly kiss on the cheek.

Mouthfeel on this is on par with some of the big league NEIPA guys (they both start with "T"). Soft, creamy. Smooth, but also with an acfeptuonally lively carbonation. This is nearly Tree House soft, but with a blast of bubbles. I love it.

Overall, I literally just realized that this was a gift (I'll add that up top) - this review was not me trying to be nice for someone, I was legitimately surprised by this beer. It has been a damn long while since an IPA took me by surprise. This is just so incredibly balanced, it's insane. Huge tropical hop flavors, a balanced bitterness, a wonderfully soft feel, but miles away from flat, and just insanely drinkable. I mean thirst-quenchingly drinkable. Even my favorite "T" IPAs are not this refreshing. Super flavorful, soft, creamy, AND refreshing? That's a whole lot of "yes" - and I have a new favorite IPA. Anthony, my friend, thank you so much for this awesome beer. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Mango grapefruit and rind floral piney

The body is juicy looking, like squeezed grapefruit. Hazy with a soapy one and a half finger head.
The aroma is tropical fruit and lime juice.
The taste shows more of the hop profile. Very juicy with mango, grapefruit, citrus rind, berries, with a floral and piney finish.
Medium body. Low carbonation.

i thought this was awesome, easily my favorite beer i have had from these guys so far, and really one of the best hoppy beers i had while back east for the holidays. its has an impressive dense yellow orange color with a lot of brightness, still fully hazy, almost looks like a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice, plenty of airy white head on it too. aroma is awesome, dry hopped to oblivion obviously, notes of fresh sliced peaches in summer, cantaloupe, and tangerine jump out at me, a mix of hop varietals here to be sure. the malt base is simple to me, some wheat in here giving it this body, but very dry, and less dense and starchy than a lot of them, less flavor too, its really almost entirely flavored by the hops, which are so intense, they almost need some bitterness to bring it all back to earth. its incredibly juicy and flavorful, clementine, orange tic tac candy, apricot, even strawberry to me, the hop profile is just incredible, very unique, i want to know what varietals are in here, it really stands out as different to me! amazing glass of ipa overall, one of the best new england types i can recall really, i will look forward to more of this one in the future!

Pours a cloudy golden color with a thin foamy head. Retention is very minimal. Lacing is very mild. Grapefruit and grassy aroma. Slight lemon. Not juicy. Somewhat dank. Taste is a little more juicy. Grapefruit and lemon bitterness. Grassy. Light bodied with mild carbonation.
