Got in a trade with brutalfarce. 16 ounce can into tulip glass, no can dating. Pours fairly hazy/cloudy deep golden amber color with a 1 finger fairly dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tangerine, red grapefruit, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, watermelon, red apple, guava, blueberry, gooseberry, citrus peel/zest, wood, light peppercorn, pine, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, red grapefruit, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, watermelon, red apple, guava, blueberry, gooseberry, citrus peel/zest, wood, light peppercorn, pine, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, woody, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, red grapefruit, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, watermelon, red apple, guava, blueberry, gooseberry, citrus peel/rind, wood, peppercorn, pine, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and no lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy/sticky, and lightly resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Minimal warming alcohol for 6.1%. Overall this is an excellent NEIPA. All around great citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the modestly biter/drying finish, not aggressive. Feels like a lot of Citra, Mosaic, El Dorado. Very juicy, vibrant, and fairly dank/earthy hop complexity; with a nice solid balancing bready wheat/oat/malt backbone. Minimal residual sweetness from lingering resin dryness. A very enjoyable offering, and well made style example. Lighter bodied than expected, but very drinkable because of it.
