Notes: Pale yellow with a fluffy white head, a small nip of bitterness on the front that mellows out to a playful medley of passionfruit, citrus and peaches. It has a full mouthfeel yet it’s gentle enough on the palette that you’ll want to snuggle all evening on the couch with it.

Poured from a can into a pint glass. Super hazy light orange color; almost looks like pinapple juice. Thick white foamy head that really hangs around. Hoppy aroma with heavy notes of pine and citrus. Taste and mouth feel is super smooth for a NEIPA. Not only that but you actually get a taste of the malt, not sure what it is (Im a noob) but kinda reminds me of a cracker. The bitterness is there like you'd expect but its not overpowering like a lot of others are; you can still taste the body of the beer as well as some hints of citrus.

First beer I've had from Fat Orange Cat, bought it on a whim, but I'll definitely be back to try some of their other offerings. Great beer!

A: slightly hazy burnt yellow color with a hint of flat orange 2 finger frothy off-white head

S: huge note of mango and pineapple upfront. Guava, passionfruit, dragonfruit, and papaya. Crackery malts, and strawberry with a hint of sweet malt. Super juicy

T: orange juice, creamsicle, and mango. Kiwi, guava, and dragonfruit behind that. A hint of passionfruit and crackers to close

M: medium mouthfeel with moderate carbonation

O: solid NEIPA. It’s hop mix allows it to stand out from the rest of the NEIPA’s and not taste just like the rest

A solid B+ of a brew; yellow grapefruity in appearance and on the palate; on the tangy side of orange citrus; no bitterness whatsoever, delightful astringency, very clean going down; head was huge in my teku and remained present for a while. I can’t quite say this is set apart much from other similar beers but I’d totally drink it again and I’m glad I bought a 4-pack. Worth your $15. FYI no date on my can but I bought it Jan 10, a day after it was delivered to my local spot.

A: The beer is very hazy to cloudy yellow in color. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and lots of lacy rings around the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of peaches are present in the nose along with notes of notes of orange citrus.
T: The taste has flavors of peaches with notes of mangos and orange citrus. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied, smooth and a little juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This New England-style IPA was very smooth and seemed to have a little more delicate aromas and flavors (from the peaches) compared to other beers in the style.

Serving type: can
