Canned 8/11/17; drank 10/8/17 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque orange appearance.

A rough pour yielded a nice off-white head; thick lace.

Pineapple, orange citrus & dry grass notes in the nose.

Medium thick, creamy mouthfeel.

Pineapple & sweet orange citrus flavors up front; dry grass & booze heat notes on the finish.

A bit hot, but overall fruity & flavorful. I'd have another....

Hazy dull gold beer with fluffy, sticky, off white head. The aroma is pungent hops with pine and grapefruit and a mild, malty sweetness. Tastes kind of like white wine, grapefruit and pine with a decent malt sweetness. The high ABV is not detectable and hidden well. Pretty fine beer.

Pours a very cloudy golden-orange with a finger of head and good retention--a typical hazy NEIPA look with an attractive color. Aroma is primarily pineapple, with some passion fruit, some floral hop character, maybe a touch of key lime. Much the same on the palate, but with the flavors amped up and with the addition of a hint of vanilla and a lovely bitterness on the finish to provide a counter-point to the fruit. Full body, very smooth mouthfeel and 10.5% abv that is extremely well disguised.

Was lucky to sample a couple of Mikkeller beers this week, both IPAs (Waves & Hazy Fuentes). The Hazy F. was really special. It has an intense, beautiful golden color and is, as the name plainly says, HAZY. The smell is excellent, fruity and hoppy and the taste is delicious. It is hoppy without being overly bitter, intially sweet but finishes dry. I am just now getting to sample some New England style IPAs and understand what all the fuss is about. I did not look at the ABV until after finishing the beer and would not have guessed that it was was that high. Well done!!

Legit hazy IPA. Much more flavorful than most DIPA's including Pliny. Reminds me a lot of the Modern Times Hedge Witch. So much flavor and misleadingly smooth for 10%+ ABV
