16oz can dated 2/9/23.

Pours cloudy gold with an inch-plus head of white. Moderate retention and lacing. Melon, pineapple skin, unripe peach in the nose. Medium bodied with a soft mouthfeel. Ripe tropicals on the palate with minimal malt or bitterness. Honeydew, tangerine, pineapple. Finishes juicy and fairly.

Canned on 02/09/23. Poured into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint.

A: Hazy lemonade yellow with 1-finger white foamy head with average retention and a solid ring of lacing.

S: Green fruit (lime, honeydew), herbal-lemongrass, sweaty dank with low esters.

T: Sweet profile overall with more pineapple, honeydew melon, and the same lemongrass herbal note as in the aroma in the finish. Low esters and low-medium bitterness.

M: High carbonation for the style with medium body and crisper finish than most NEIPAs.

O: Good NEIPA but nothing special. Good pick for those that like the sweeter version of this style.

Can pour into tulip glass.
Really liked this one. Bold hazy yellow appearance with bountiful juicy lasting head. Tropical nose and flavors of mango, pineapple, star fruit. Creamy but crisp moderate mouthfeel. Very nice!

A - Pours a hazy yellow with a one finger white head. Light soapy lacing.

S - Aroma is tanger, orange rind, grapefruit and candied lemon.

T - The taste is orange, pineapple, grapefruit, white grapes and a piney finish.

M - Medium body with medium carbonation. Prickly mouthfeel with a big crisp finish.

O - Solid. Interesting flavor profile. A little bit more over carbed than I like for an ipa.

Consumed 11/20/21

Pale yellow, hazy in a milky way, medium to low carbonation
Some citrus, with orange pith, tangerine, grapefruit, ruby red grapefruit, lemon, herbal hops, slightly dank, slightly earthy, a touch woodsy, hint of pine, muted tropical notes, some mango, melon, pineapple, mango, white grapes, some prickly, fruit-like acidity, medium level of bitterness, very pale/nonexistent malt base
On the light side of medium, smooth and slick without being chewy, medium carbonation

The Shinning? This is an interesting IPA from Foam in the sense that it tastes slightly different than their typical creamsicle flavor profile. There is a wide variety of fruit, and this is very drinkable, but it something about it tastes mildly incoherent.
