Got a bunch to try from this brewery thanks to Drew. No can date.

Pours a decent bubbly foamy 1/2 finger head that fades at a med pace, very little lacing, super murky milk-shake orange color

Nose is quite nice, starts with citrus, orange juice, soft clementine, into pith, then mango sherbet, puree, more tropical notes with a hint of pineapple, some grapefruit, touch of a creamy malt

Taste brings more citrus, plenty of it, loads of orange juice, orange cream, mango puree, mango sherbet, a bit more pineapple and tropical fruit notes, some pith, spicy rind later, soft creamy malts, wheat/oat combination, finishes a bit spicier and sharper with more rind and fair bitterness.

Mouth is med bod, soft creamy, fluffy carb

Overall a pretty well done NEIPA for sure, very soft juicy and delicious, well done hop profile, drinkable af, I could pound this back easily. Next is the double version of this so I'm excited for that.

Poured from the can into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Very turbid and almost chunky body color, thick and yellow. Faint white for the head and not too creamy with minimal retention as well.

Large hop aroma, mostly pineapple with a mix of citrus. Chalky sensing, with some faint pine and earth tones. Hits quite a bit of juice box character as well, but with minimal sensing sweetness.

Palate is a chewy but also grain sensation. Chalky aftertaste with lots of density and grit, and a large classic new age hop flavors of tropical pineapple and lemon to other citrus fruits. Minor sweet with a bit of pine finish, but there's also a very soapy quality flavor and aftertaste even with a mix of pine light subtle astringency as well.

A good mix of hop flavors, but the tropics dominate and there's a couple things that just seem a little lacking in the beers overall character.

Poured from a can into a stemmed tulip. Looks like orange juice. Small white head forms. Smell is orange rind and some grapefruit. Taste is all orange rind with some lingering bitterness. Good carb and mouthfeel for a 5.7 abv IPA. Overall, excellent IPA. Really tasty!
