On-tap at Good Beer, New York, NY

A: The beer is very hazy to cloudy yellow in color. It poured with a short white head that left a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of stone fruit are present in the nose along with hints of honeydew melons.
T: The taste has flavors of stone fruit along with hints of honeydew melon and grapefruit. There is a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This New England IPA is packed with lots of citrusy and tropical flavors.

Serving type: on-tap

Smaller than the ABV. Too sweet. Combined with creaminess of body makes it a bit tough to get through. Aroma on point and it looks the part.

Appearance: Arrives cloudy and orange colored, with a nice, thick head that leaves quite a few shards of lacing

Smell: Papaya, mango and orange tones

Taste: Papaya forward, with the mango emerging; in the middle, the citrusy tones of orange and grapefruit emerge, bringing a moderately bitter balance to the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation; somewhat creamy

Overall: Glad to be in NYC when the first shipment arrived; a nice DIPA from a new brewer to watch
