Pours a hazy light orange color with a 1F head and moderate lacing.

Smells of floral, grassy hops with some citrus.

Tastes of orange, grapefruit and pineapple with a lightly bitter, boozy warm finish.

Medium body with light carbonation. Smooth and lightly syrupy mouthfeel.

This is a very drinkable , juicy NEIPA.

Thank you, Dave!! Can poured into Mast Landing pint glass at home. Thick appearance, strong head and flavor. Very good if you want a double.

From a 16oz can, dated 08/08/23. Served in a spiegelau IPA glass.

Pours a hazy, dull orange with a finger-plus of creamy head. Retention is excellent, leaving a solid sheet of sudsy lacing.

Nose is crackery, sharp and fruity. Aromas of pineapple, peach, and orange.

Taste is light, bright and crackery, in line with the nose except maybe just a little boozier than expected. Tasting pineapple, peach, pine resin and orange slice. Finishes with a little fuselly smudge, which is too bad because it’s completely delightful right up until then.

Feel is bright and juicy, medium-light bodied relative to the style and briskly carbonated. Some resin, some stickiness, no warmth.

Overall, a mixed bag, but mostly to the positive. Very nearly flawless excepting that minor, nearly forgivable, greasy fusel note at the end of each sip. The mouthfeel was exceptionally lively for an 8.3% abv beer and was probably worth the price of admittance right there.

In the upper tier of its style. Not top, but upper. You will enjoy if you are looking for a not bitter, not too tropical, more classic NEIPA that goes down easy and kicks! I'll have another. More for an enjoyable quality experience than for a snobby evaluation session, but it does stand up to good ones.

A Tavour Treat Pours a pale yellow color with a foamy head that lasts quite a while. Aroma of grapefuit and citrus fruits. Taste is tangy grapefuit. Only slightly bitter at the finish. An enjoyable brew.

It pours smoothly, all the while emanating tropical fruitiness. It's obviously a hazy, but the picture is a tad dark versus reality - it's lighter visually. Pineapple juice look to it. The head is tight foam, very white, fairly persistent falling to a pretty even cap. Sticks pretty well.

Aroma - while enthusiastic it is actually pretty soft when I stick my nose in. A fair amount of pine-like resin actually comes through the tropical fruits. It's mostly tropical - I'll go mango with a little pineapple, then a slight citrusy orange. Peach eventually exerts itself fairly strongly, but it takes a while. It really says drink me, so...

The flavors lead with the tropical flavors. Mango, maybe some guava, some pineapple, that bit of orange. There's a good dose of resinous flavor, then the peach just kicks ass. The flavor is more substantial than the aroma would suggest. There's a nice bit of pithy bitterness, and a little oily citrus sting. Tasty stuff.

It's smooth, a tad bit chalky on the tongue, moderately carbonated. Very slight alcohol warmth. Actually goes down dangerously smooth at 8.5%...

Overall, digging this one. Well made, if undifferentiated from the crowd. Enjoyable, smoothly integrated flavors, not overdone. My first non-stout from Mast Landing and I am certainly not disappointed

Batch 12 canned on 8/23/22 opened and reviewed on 9/5/22

World Beer Cup 2022 Gold Award

Look: Just about perfect look for the style, thick and hazy, straw gold, white haze, dense white foam cap, spread out with decent coverage and a solid ring of lacing.

Nose: Extra piney pineapple hops, sweet and tangy fruits with dense wet earth tones.

Feel & Flavor: A fresh, crisp, earthy bite ( very Mast Landing style) smooth and slightly hot in the middle, finishes smooth and juicy.
Sharp, earthy bitter pine flavor and dried pineapple chunks in the various hop varieties. Tangy and sweet fruits, gritty earth notes and a rough around the edges complexity that has this combo of hops very interesting.

Overall: it's very complex so it's all just starting to settle in for me and I'm about a quarter finished. Fresh feel, big, interesting hop body has me interested in every sip so far.

[IMG] It is another weekend and the last weekend for awhile. This weekend we have 3 days to sip some new suds. Crack a new beer, take a little extra time, and let us beer lovers know a little something about it. It is fun and great information for the rest of. I have several new ones on hand. I am starting with this one from Mast Landing that on the side of the can says World Beer Cup Gold Award 2022, let’s get started.

Poured into a 13 oz glass canned on 8/23/22. Pours an attractive yellow orange with a 2 finger sticky white head that leaves thick streaks of lace, with excellent retention. 4.5

Aroma is mandarin, mango, peach, apricot, and a little grapefruit rind. 4.25

Taste is mandarin, mango, peach, apricot, and a hint of white grapefruit in the balanced finish. 4.25

Mouthfeel is above average, not sticky or dry, soft gentle carbonation, and at 8.3% big flavor, but it goes down very easy. 4.5

Overall this one is very impressive. Quality and price it is well worth a try. Not sure it would win any awards with me, but still better than most. Cheers all. 4.5
