Poured into a 16 tulip glass canned 5/21/2020. Pours a very hazy yellow, with a 2 finger sticky white head that leaves big thick streaks of lace as it slowly settles. 4.25

Smell mango, ripe melon, guava, herbal earthy hops, and apricot rock solid. 4.25

Taste follows cantaloupe, mango, guava, slightly herbal, and apricot. 4.25

Mouthfeel is bigger than medium, a tad sticky not dry, gentle carbonation, and at 9% really drinkable. 4.25

Overall this is another really nice NEDIPA from this brewery. 4.25

On tap at the brewery. Hazy orange. Smells of tropical fruit, alcohol, sweet pale malts, and a bit of dankness. Tastes fruity, sweet, alcoholic. Strong alcohol. Tropical fruit sweetness throughout with low bitterness. Medium heavy and creamy. Very alcoholic and sweet.

Pours to a pulpy haze thats become standard to NE ipas/dipas. Nose is light citrusy sweet pineapple thats not over powering. Mouthfeel fits the look but not overly thick. Flavors are rich in sweet mangos (i think its technically papaya but I swear I got mango) and pineapple, drinks so smoothly for 9% and theres no sign of booze. Only criticism is the sweet citrus flavors dominate and theres not much traditional "hop" presence.

But if you're looking for a juicy, citrus forward NE style DIPA, this one is among the best of them.
