2 weeks since canning.
It has a clearish tone the deepens to gold as it settles in the light.
Medium strength aroma makes me think of pineapples and oranges right away.
The Taste is unimpressive and unremarkable with a noticably bitter lingering taste of pine resin.
Sparkly carbonation.

GREATER GOOD PULP DIPA 8/20/18

A single bought in a mixed six. Canned 8/8/18, although listed as "archived, no longer brewed" on Beer Advocate.

a: Nearly clear amber with an inch thick white head whcih receded to thin surface foam and patchy lacing.

s; Strong pine resin

t; Follows the nose with some vegetal notes over a medium bready malt base. Slight bitterness lingers on the dry finish, becomes more prominent as it warms.

m; Medium, very good body and good carbonation tingle.

o: A flavorful west coast style DIPA,

I have a lot of questions for the person who wrote the marketing copy, but otherwise this is solid. An IPA in the style of a west coast dank beer, enjoyably bitter and hoppy. Nose/look don’t amaze, but the 8% goes down smooth even though you can taste it.

Small head with little lace. Clear and golden.

Malty aroma with a bitter background.

The taste is improvement, although the the hop is still quite harsh.

Pint can. 6/6/18

Golden straw color, thick haze, good carbonation that easily sets up an excellent white foamy fluff cap. Nice lace. Very dense head.

Sweet and fruity hops and sweet amber style maltiness in the nose. Heady and sweet fruity scented tropical-style hops steal the show. Pineapple, mango, honeydew Melon withCaramel malty tones underneath. Excellent hoppy aromatics.

This Dipa really comes across with much more of a hop bite, like a West coast style. Then the hops quickly become tropical, dense and full of citrusy tones in the New England fashion.
A citrusy bite, followed by big, pulpy tropical complexity in the hops that is pretty impressive. The malt is a bit hefty but not as sweet and bready as west coast versions, more grains and wheat effect, but with a very nice sweetness to follow. Great balance for the style. There's a nice spicy and earthy bite Right at the end that makes this very well rounded and interesting.

This juicy New England IPA is just that, and is crazy drinkable for 8% abv.

with clean mouthful.

This beer is not hazy as most of the reviews have noted. It is similar to Treehouse Bright but with a little more bite to it. Overall it is a very enjoyable NEIPA.
