Picked up a 16 oz can from G.B.'s Bottleshop in Orlando 1-27-24 for i think $4.99. Canned 11-2023; consumed 1-28-24.

Beer poured a hazy orange with a very nice white head that is leaving lacing behind.

Nose is very nice as fresh citrus and tropical fruits abound.

Taste is a light pale malt base that lets the hops display notes of orange, lemon, and mango. Finishes with a rind and pine bittering finish; 7/10 on my bitterness scale.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and very refreshing.

Overall a very nice near sessionable brew!

Pours a completely opaque and murky orange with a matte look to it. Head is two fingers of snow-white foam. Aroma is grapefruit, papaya, tangerine, and orange zest with a bright start. Flavor profile is grapefruit, melon, mango, orange, and tangerine. It has a lighter body than many New England IPAs, its bright not chalk, not a fruit bomb and it has a hint of bitterness that keeps the drinker alert.

16 ounce can poured into a willi becher.
Canned 2/7/23

Hazy pour of drab pale yellow-orange. The three finger white head is super persistent and the mousse-like foam leaves clumps of lace.

A somewhat juicy nose opens with pineapple. Citra citrus aromas come through more later in the glass. The juicy citrus flavor, grapefruit specifically, is medium sweet and moderately bitter, a nice balance. Citrus continues through to a finish with grapefruit pith and peel aftertaste. The medium body is soft and a bit sticky, becomes more creamy as it warms and has zero tongue prickle.

Aptly named and very good. This has more flavor and a fuller mouthfeel than I expected for 6.2%. I want a another.

Good name because it has a fresh citrus juice flavor with the pith. I like it as the flavor seems to linger. Worth checking out. Solid brewski.

Pours a bright, opaque orange with substantial head that dissipates slowly leaving lovely lacing as the beer is consumed.

Tropical, slightly minty nose. Orange and peach peak through too.

Taste follows nose. The minty/herbal quality is stronger, and I quite like that. A slight bite to the finish.

Thick and juicy mouth.

Very nice hazy IPA. I really liked this one.

Pours a slightly hazy golden straw color with a nice amount of lacing. The nose has loads of citrus, primarily ripe oranges and grapefruit, and there’s a significant grain aroma.

The taste features the ripe oranges and grapefruit, but the star is the grainy, grassy flavor from the malt, which provides balance, but more importantly provides character to this delicious beer.

Pours a matte, completely opaque orange color. Few finger sudsy white head lingers on the beer. Dissipates leaving a thin layer of foam.

Aroma has notes of orange, grapefruit, tangerine, and some light floral notes.

Taste follows the nose with nice notes of orange, tangerine, grapefruit, some grassy hops and a crackery malt backbone.

Feel is medium bodied, smooth, with moderate carbonation.

Overall a very nice NEIPA.

Pours hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is citrus hoppy and strong (in a good way). Taste follows with citrus and hop bitterness balanced to favor sweetness. Feel is excellent, on point for a NEIPA. Overall it's fresh and tasty.
