I can't deny it with the addition of pineapple and orange zest this beer really does taste like blood orange juice. Mild herbal finish but mostly sweet tart blood orange. Still tastes like a double IPA though very well hidden ABV.

Well, I've finally come around to trying my first NEIPA, courtesy of Craft Beer Kings!

Into an IPA glass, it pours an opaque straw/yellow reminiscent of pineapple with about 2 fingers of a solid white head that leaves little lacing, incredibly beautiful looking beer

It looked like pineapple juice, and it sure as hell smells like it too, along with notes of guava, orange and lemon rind

Based on the aroma and being that it is my first of the style, I was not expecting the flavor in this. It is subtly fruity in the beginning, and very gently turns into a piney aftertaste

The feel on this is also out of the ordinary for me, as it seems "soft" for lack of a better word. It goes down quite differently than anything I've had before, and it would be quite easy to down a few of these despite the relatively high abv

My first example of the style shows me that the hype around these is justified, and while this is a really solid offering, I cannot wait to try some of the more acclaimed examples of this

16 oz. Can

Poured into a Trillium glass a pretty nice cloudy pale yellow color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger plus off-white head, which also leaves some pretty nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with a pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, pineapple, mango, peach, strawberries), pretty nice diesel like. The taste is pretty nice hoppy, malty, with a pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, mango, pineapple, peach, strawberries), pretty nice diesel like, nice little sweetness. Medium body, ABV hidden very nicely, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, this is a pretty tasty brew. Orange Julius! Addictive! MilkShake! Nice to see it around here, cheaper though.

Very hazy pale to medium yellow gold... Rock star retention... Aroma is loaded with fresh pineapple and peach with a hint of orange... Blood orange on the palette... Sharp earthy hops... Feel is medium and lush with a chalky finish... Cohesive and enjoyable... Unique and enjoyable, but not something i’ll Likely seek out again...

5 oz pour on tap. Taste like pineapple fruit punch. Does not come across as very IPA-like, milkshake or otherwise. Surprisingly not super sweet, at least for Decadent. I don't see the need for this to be 9.1% abv, but it's not boozy. Overall an okay beer but nothing to seek out.
