Canned on 6.2, opened on 7.1

Collaboration with other half and equilibrium

Picked up at empire liquors , another fine selection courtesy of @nathanb4

Murky orange liquid crowned by a massive three finger off white foam crown , aggressive pour into my Spiegelau a ipa glass, settles to a plump island and eventually islands and rings with spotty lacings

Aroma is orange and grapefruit citrus

Taste is a Smooth tropical fruits with grapefruit

Hoppy with no bite, smooth and almost creamy with a semi dry finish

Good beer by two great brewers

Poured a dense yellow body with minimal head and a touch of lace ring down the glass. The aroma has notes of citric and earthy hops along with some mango and pineapple. Smooth, light to medium body, a touch of earthiness under a mango-dominated tropical fruit sweetness that has a peach-note that struck me on the end along with just a touch of dry hoppiness. Easy to drink and not too sweet so just right for style of beer and worth trying.

Can. White head. Hazy sunset golden color.

Straight up dole pineapple juice. Melon, mango, papaya. All tropical juice. Soft. No bitterness. Strawberry in the finish. Creamy lactose goodness. Two amazing breweries teamed up to make an outstanding NE ipa. This is a winner.

Many thanks to DEdesings57 for this amazing can.

A - Opaque medium tan gold color with dense lacing.

S - Pungent and dank peach, pineapple, and passion fruit, and tropical fruit with light spiciness.

T - Taste follows the nose: very dank and juicy with waves of pineapple, peach, passion fruit, and overall a juicy basket of tropical fruit. Nice lingering fruit rind and peppery spice with low bitterness and more of a long lingering sweet finish.

M - Thick and creamy mouthfeel that coats the mouth with a heft layer of tropical fruit.

O - This beer is amazing, 'nuff said.

A little concerned how they managed to lose the bitterness almost entirely and have it come out so sweet but it was an enjoyable experience, so...!

Seriously though, not bitter in the slightest, and damn near tasted like actual fruit juice or sugar was added! But it was a New England IPA and that is pretty much to be expected. Less balanced than a well done Tree House IPA but I did not ding them for it because overall I really liked it and I am glad I bought 2 four packs!

Not quite as soft as OH/trill iPas I’ve had butbthe flavour! So much tropical fruit with a slight citrus tang keeping everything in check. Fantastic beer
