IPA!

These east coast style offerings are all ugly, but this isn't as clearly chunky (get the irony there?--you're welcome).

If you adore citra, like me, the aroma and flavor here are perfect. Glorious presence. No malt interference. Not at all bitter.

I love stonedtrippin's reviews and rarely disagree (so bummed I just missed him at one of my hometown spots), but I don't get any vegetalness here.

Mouthfeel pretty full. Medium carb and not too abrasive from the particulates.

Rock on, narrow gauge!

L: turbid for sure. A pale orange color, minimal head. Looks like a cloudy orange juice with 10x the pulp
S: all citrus goodness
T: a citrus bomb, not too bitter either
F: thick, almost chewy. Very very smooth.
O: a fantastic ipa!

Pours a hazy orangish yellow......resembles pineapple juice. Nose is full of citra goodness.....mango, orange, and pineapple. Taste is juicy with very little bitterness. Feel is medium with very low carbonation.....my only knock on this juice bomb is that it could of used a touch more bubbles. Overall, this is another outstanding hoppy offering from an up and coming brewery.

still a really nice hoppy beer, but easily the least impressive of the three single hopped beers i had here. i have never adored citra hops in a single hop context, and it again seems to lack the bitterness that the others had, just not quite there in that regard, and seems more like a pale than a true ipa as a result. same hazy pale colors that the others had, maybe just a half a shade lighter and cleaner on the sediment. the aroma is awesome, pure citra glory, but it doesnt transfer ad brightly into the flavor, and it seems very one dimensional on the hops. fresh vegetal leafy green citra, with lemon notes there and a little confectioners sugar, like a lemonade or something, some malt actually comes through in this one, so balanced without the bitterness. good beer, this whole series is very well made, but this is a further example of citra not being quite so amazing on its own, especially compared to the mosaic and el dorado editions of this. i am pretty excited about narrow gauge right now, they appear to be onto something. east coast ipa in the midwest! why not?!

[IMG] Narrow Gauge NEIPA not sure when it was canned, but I trust juice bomb is fresh. Pours like a glass of pineapple o.j with a solid finger head that leaves little spots of lacecall over the sides of the glass, with excellent retention. 4.5

Smell is passion fruit, guava, tangerine, pineapple, and some faint grapefruit. 4.25

Taste really is bigger and bolder, with a ton of tropical fruit. Passion fruit, tangerine, pineapple, start the party with guava and grapefruit in the final show down. Really balanced and really tasty. 4.75

Mouthfeel is a little bigger than Yogi, soft with plenty of life, just covers your palate with a sticky Hop forward film, and at 7%ABV really goes down too easy. 4.5

Overall good gravy this stuff is just what I hoped it would be,?everything about it screams Trillium and that isn’t a complaint at all. Thanks @bstyle for another wow beer. 3-3 so far man, floured again. 4.5
