Thank you Franfab for this
16 oz can poured into a teku

A- A hazy orange with a two finger off white head.

S- Wet grass, some sweet melons, touch of citrus and tropical fruits, some caramel malts.

T- Citrus, lime zest, stones fruits, some melons and tropical fruits, wet grass, some caramel malts.

M- Smooth, medium body.

O- A solid NEIPA, but something seems a little off based on others reviews. Hop profile is a a little grass and it is a little sweeter than I thought it would be. Still a good beer, but sounds like previous batches were dialed in better.

32oz crowler, filled on 8.31.18, poured into a Corridor Bicycle pint glass.

The beer pours very hazily and is quite turbid yet has a bright orange color, golden hues with a foamy white head, about two fingers tall that has great lacing and excellent retention. The beer really does look like a glass of OJ. The aroma is wonderful, super juicy, tons of citrus, peach, apricot, nectarine, lychee, with some nice green hop countered by soft doughy grain and sweet yeast. The flavors are great, tons of juicy tropical fruits, tons of citrus, lots of peach and mango, lightly green with a pleasant earthy bitterness underneath the brighter and sweeter fruitiness, excellent citrus bouquet with sweet yeast and soft dough. The mouthfeel is great, coating and creamy, super full bodied without being too floury and thick that finishes easily with just a touch of warmth and a nice dry bite.

Verdict: An excellent IPA from Corridor. Beautifully bright and refreshing, tons of dank goodness in this one, super juicy and fruity with just enough underlying green hop bitterness to balance this so well. Perfect summer haze.

Crowler from the brewery, poured into a snifter. This checks all the boxes for a NE IPA. Low bitterness, creamy mouthfeel, orange yellow color. Nose and taste are orange, and apricot candy with maybe a little bit of tart fruit at the end.

Sample from the brewery. This beer's soft, opaque, matte orange color screams NEIPA, while a cloudlike head that just won't quit gives Cosmic Juice Box appearance points lacking from many of its less accomplished peers. Meanwhile, deep orange notes, whispers of apricot, prominent pine, lemon candy, and waves of passion fruit make this one worth an extra sniff or two. Some solvent-y alcohol also shows up as the drink warms in the glass. Although full-bodied, Corridor has made an IPA with balance and bitterness, which enhances its drinkability. Lots of citrus, a bit of resin, toasted sourdough, and a semi-dry finish distinguish the flavor. Well executed and extremely likeable.

Crowler from a friend. I thought this was super nice. The aroma is stellar, huge dry hop fruity ness, very juicy. The body is on the heavier side, a touch sweet for my taste, but nice hop flavor. Solid effort

Tasted in a snifter from draft at Corridor Brewery & Provisions on December 8, 2017. Thick hazy IPA brewed with Citra, Mosaic, and double dry hopped with tons of Galaxy. Recommended.

Crowler filled 9/23/17; drank 9/24/17 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque orange/yellow/red appearance.

A violent pour yielded a nice white head; strong lace.

Fruit punch, pineapple juice & mild dry grass notes in the nose.

Soft, medium mouthfeel.

Pineapple juice & banana flavors; mild dry grass notes on the flat finish.

Nice flavors here, but this seems a bit off on the mouthfeel; more carbonation perhaps?

Poured from a crowler less than a day old off the draft line. The appearance is muddled orange, like an unfiltered mango or peach juice. Made with galaxy, citra, and mosaic hops, but really a showcase for the galaxy--pineapple, passion fruit, and mango on the nose, tangerine added on the palate. A bit of bittering hop character throughout the experience, so not a total juice bomb, but it's better off for that added complexity.

Another home run from Corridor! It has their expected soft, pillowy mouth feel without feeling un-carbed. Very juicy, with citrus and tropical fruit flavors exploding out of the glass.

Hazy opaque orange with a thin layer of foam and spotty lace.
Tropical aroma of papaya and sandalwood.
Taste is lightly sweet and bitter in the middle, grapefruit peel and dried papaya.
Smooth creamy feel with lower carb, finishes dry and lightly bitter.
Overall this was nice and very drinkable, though I liked Squeezit a little better.
Thanks to Thomas for sharing this one!

this one checks all the categories and probably ends my need to trade away my cellar for NE IPA from out east. bright orange and super haze, nose is awesome but the taste and feel is just super creamy perfection.

I can say this is definitely one of my all-time favorites. It's pretty much perfect. Pours a nice head. Bright and hazy. Pillowy mouth feel. And incredibly well balance from start to finish. They really hit it out of the park.
