On draft at the brewery. The beer is a cloudy orange with a minimal white head.
Great aroma, loaded with citrus.
It's a juice bomb, loaded with OJ flavors with a hint of grapefruit and tropical notes. A hit of almost acidic sharpness that is not unpleasant and little bitter pith.
Great mouthfeel, soft and mellow.
Excellent Hazy.

Appearance: Arrives cloudy with a goldenstraw color; the impressive head coats the glass with a web of lace

Smell: Juicy and tropical with bright orange juice and grapefruit tones; hints of mango, pineapple, peach and papaya

Taste: Extraordinarily juicy, up front, with a tropical cocktail of fruit flavors - orange, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, peach and papaya; a bit a shortbread malt sweetness holds the fruit together and sticks to the tip of the tongue through the finish; still, the juice overwhelms

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation; creamy

Overall: Facing some stiff competition at the Chicago NE IPA fest, this one stood out in the top echelon

Had 2 pints of this for the first time at CBP yesterday. A tad dark on the look and interesting nose but the flavor is outstanding!!! Malt profile is not distracting at all. Super juicy, love it!

A crowler purchased at the brewery on 01/27/18 a couple days after the release. Pouring the contents into a 13oz. tulip for the review.

Look- Pours a hazy but brilliant orange producing a finger of creamy white foam. Some heavy lacing is present upon settling.

Smell- Passionfruit, pineapple, orange, papaya, mango and a very slight whiff of fresh rubber.

Taste- Fresh squeezed oranges, pineapple, passionfruit, papaya and mango. A bit of floral in the finish.

Feel- Pillowy soft and creamy smooth for a beer weighing in at 8%.

Overall- I've heard/read a lot about this brewery and their knack for producing the NE style IPA's for the past year. I finally decided to check out the fuss when I was in Chicago and I'm happy to say I wasn't disappointed with my decision except for not buying a couple more crowlers. This beer and the brewery is legit!

16oz can, canned on 1.25.18, purchased on 1.25.18 and enjoyed on 1.25.18, poured into a Corridor pint glass.

The beer pours a very hazy and turbid golden straw color, orange and amber hues with a finger of white head that offers minimal retention but yields great swatches of soapy lace. The aroma is fantastic, bursting with juicy hops, tons of tropical fruit, citrus, dank wildflower and piney green hop leaf, grassy and raw with a nice sweet yeast and wheat forward doughy malt backbone. The flavors are fantastic, tons of juicy hops, incredibly tropical fruit and citrus flavors, light stone fruits as well, peachy with some nectarine fruit, just tons of flavor with a nice bitterness to it as well, green hop leaf, hop spice, resinous pine and a nice dank weediness that brings out some floral character with a strong mineral water and doughy malt finish with the yeast offering just a touch of sweetness. The mouthfeel is great, thick and chewy medium body that isn't overly heavy that coats very well with a smooth but lively touch and a dry finish.

Verdict: An awesome IPA from Corridor. Shocking this doesn't have a label from one of the usual suspects in MA or VT, but just a stunning example of the hazy IPA movement. Bursting with flavor, ample but not dominating bitterness and tons of complexity with a nice brightness that is very refreshing. Awesome beer.

More orange than amber in color, Squeezit is attractive in the glass in a Sunshine State kind of way—haze, not murk, is the name of the game here. Adding to this beer's visual appeal is a tall, mousse-like head of foam that hangs around for ages. Right away waves of bright, fresh citrus spill over the lip of the glass, followed by deeper pithier notes, a tropical hit of green mango, and a resinous undertone. Fans of Double IPA will find a lot to like in the nose. Soft and medium-bodied on the palate, the flavor delivers more bold citrus (orange, grapefruit), pineapple, and a fruity sweetness alongside a measured bitterness that keeps everything balanced. And the juiciness goes without saying. A very good example of the popular New England style.

Smell: Sweet Juicy tropical and citrus fruit. Fresh juiced orange juice, sweet tangerines, grapefruit. Over ripe mango, pineapple, peaches, papaya. A little bit of berry and grass. A hint of yeasty bubblegum, a bready maltiness. Also there's an underlying honey sweetness. Smelling this the beer definitely has a world class nose, it is absolutely fantastic!

Taste: This beer has all the components I got in the nose. Super juicy, over ripe, fresh, citrus and tropical fruits. Orange, tangerine, pineapple, mango, peach, papaya. There is a slight yeasty bubblegum flavor mid palate. The beer has a bready malt, honey sweetness that hits you right upfront and carries into the finish. The finish you get the faintest hint of berry, grapefruit and grass. The beer has almost no bitterness, with a pleasant grassy, tropical fruit sweetness lingering in the aftertaste. This is a Juice bomb!

Feel: Medium to full body. Probably more on the fuller side. It has a moderate creaminess and really nice carbonation. The beer has a really easy drinking feel as well, most likely due to the fact there is almost no bitterness to speak of.

Overall: Why this beer isn't more recognized blows my mind! This is by far one of the best examples of this style. An absolute juice bomb. If you haven't had this beer or anything from corridor do yourself a favor and trade for it. They usually have at least a couple awesome beers on tap. You won't be disappointed. This is a world class beer.
