From Labor Day weekend notes:
16 oz. can.
Moderate pour yields a 3/4 inch white head over a very hazy body with nice lacing. Nose of tropical fruit, pine, and citrus. Taste mirrors nose pretty well. Nice feel for a hazebomb such as this and overall, a nice experience. Cheers!

From the 16 oz. can packaged 07/17/18. Sampled on September 14, 2018.

The appearance is a milky, cloudy looking light amber-yellow with a long lasting foamy white head. It looks the part.

The aroma brings out an array of sensations including grapefruit, pineapple, citrus, herbal notes, and a mellow white breadiness.

The body is medium to full and almost creamy.

Same fruitiness in the flavor along with a mild sweet malt note but there is an eruption of lingering bitterness at the end. This is a non-New England breed NEIPA that hits the mark.

Wow. This compares nicely with Alter Ego from Treehouse. Very similar taste profile, look, and smell. If anything this may be a bit “thinner” feeling and slightly more muted in flavor ... slightly. A fantastic beer available at my local store.

Disappointing to say the least. Kinda of plain and boring with a metallic aftertaste. Not much hops detected. Couldn't finish the can.

Canned on 8/7/18

Pours a hazy straw-gold with a soft ¾ finger of white cap.

Aroma is bright and very juicy from the start; I’m getting quite a bit of orange, peach, pineapple rind, mango, and guava; even the bubblegum and lighter earthy tones have these inherently bright, citrusy qualities to them.

The term is often used to exhaustion in this era of NEIPAs, but this one really is straight juice, a tropical medley showcasing not one particular citrus note, but many all thrown together; mango, pineapple, orange zest, and an excellent dose of pithy pine thrown in for good measure at the finish. Normally I wouldn’t respond as well to a multitude of flavors subduing one another, but in this case I’m forced to make an exception; it all just bursts at you and works wonders.

Mouthfeel gives a sturdy, medium body to even out the juice; resinous presence adds some perfectly balanced grit to really make this an exceptional experience.

Great medley of tropical flavors balanced to an incredibly high level accompanied by a lush, juicy mouthfeel; an approachable NEIPA if there ever was one, this one is ultra-balanced and yet still grabs my attention.

Canned 19 days ago.

Pours hazy orange with a finger of white head.

The nose and taste are soft passion fruit, orange rind, and bubblegum.

The mouthfeel is medium+ and velvety. Light tropical hops go down easy.

Overall, a very good NEIPA. 9/10

Got in a trade with spelingchampeon. 16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 7/3/2018. Pours very hazy deep golden amber color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, gooseberry, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, wheat, biscuit dough, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical/light earthy hops and bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, gooseberry, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, wheat, biscuit dough, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very mild pine, zesty, herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, gooseberry, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, wheat, biscuit dough, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/light earthy hops and bready malt flavors; with a solid malt/bitterness balance, and no cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is great. Minimal warming alcohol for 6.8%. Overall this is an awesome NEIPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/light earthy hops and bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the mildly bitter/drying finish. Impressively soft mouthfeel. Feels like Citra/Amarillo. Extremely juicy and lightly dank hop complexity; perfect wheat/oat/malt backbone. Not overly sweet/heavy. I loved Torque Wrench way more; but this was still a really enjoyable offering, and spot on style example as expected. Probably the same hops with different ABV between both. Tasted nearly identical according to my other review.

A very nice IPA.
Sherbert-like, orangey, tropical fruitiness with a touch of earthy hops and some sugar cookies to tie it all together. A nice beer given to me by some nice people. I'd gladly have it again.
