Can is coded “K047326E”… ???

Looks like dirty dishwater with floaties, it doesn’t appear to be the freshest of beers, though it only showed up here recently. Stable head of meringue foam somewhat redeems visual aesthetics.

Aroma is catty at first, like straight up urine, then grainy, mildly sweet and fruity, like some candy flavor. Taste is much the same. Day old of mango nectar about to go bad. Mild residual bitterness, sweet, syrupy feel. Texturally nauseating.

This is not a pleasant beverage. Maybe they didn't send fresh stuff. Thanks to Thomas for this one.

Hazy pour, really hop forward nose and taste follows suit. Great representation of the ipa style that doesn't lose the balance of modern brews that are too often overwhelmingly sweet.

IPA Imperial / Double

Sour earthy hop funk. Robust Mango with sour cream, grassy pineapple with sweet n' sour sauce. Golden, hazy, creamy feel and vibe. Wheat with cream 'corn straight outta the can. I mean, Virginia?? What's up?! Thick lace and a healthy appearance is nice.
Sweet and jammy citrus hops in a saturated and complex way but with a few hints of overly ripe mango chunks. A slight syrupy slide to feel in the finish.

Purchased at Monadnock Food Co-op >

Received as a trade item in exchange for another beer at The Blue Door. Poured into a nonic pint glass.

L - Opaque goldenrod, with a one-finger pale white head. Lacing is excellent. Head retains fairly well.
S - Citron, candied orange peel, and wheat. Notes of mango and super-juicy grapefruit.
T - The first thing that comes to my mind: cloudberry & tangerine jam. Grapefruit. Floral. Hint of pine tar. Well-balanced, low-bitterness. Finish is on the sweet side, and orange-filled.
F - Medium-bodied, with mild carbonation. Super drinkable. Filling.
O - I've never had a NEIPA like this one before! A unique "jammy" flavor dominates the entire thing in the best way possible. Definitely recommend, and I'll be getting this one again very soon.

Picked up a 16 oz single from Blue Door Bottleshop 3-31-22 for $6.25. No discernable canning date; consumed 5-30-22

Beer poured a chilled golden orange with a nice white head.

Nose has hints of citrus and tropical hops.

Taste is very well crafted. Large but light malt base takes on a skilled blending of gooseberry, mango, grapefruit, and orange with a balancing pine and gooseberry finish; 5/10 on my bitterness scale.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and smooth.

Overall a delightfully flavorful beer without being over the top on the juiciness, well done!
