4.46/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

16 FL OZ can
Served in an oversized, stemless wine glass

This beer pours yellow and is turbid. It kind of looks like pineapple juice. It is topped with an inch of tan head that leaves spotty lacing.

The smell is citrus and tropical fruit. Grapefruit seems to stand out.

It tastes just as good as it smells. There is tropical goodness, but the citrus is more prevalent. There is grapefruit throughout with a light pine finish.

Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel

This is a damn fine beer. I enjoy the grapefruit and pine in addition to traditional NEIPA flavors. I can see myself making the drive to Cleveland a little more often now.

16 ounce can, canned on 01/18/19, thanks again to Jon for the opportunity to try it! Served in a DFH Spiegelau IPA glass, the beer pours a pulpy juice-like cloudy gold color with about an inch and a half white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like peach, orange peel, oranges, pineapple, tropical fruit, and some floral hops and bready malt. For the most part I think the taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but there's also some bubblegum and herbal hop flavors noticeable too. Kinda juicy tasting but with a slight bitter finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's slick and smooth with a good amount of carbonation. Really easy to drink! I think this is a pretty good brew, wish Masthead would send some of their brews down to Columbus!

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Opaque butterscotch yellow with a thick off-white froth.

Smell is semi-dank with fruit accents of peach and pineapple.

Spicy and tangy tropical pineapple bubblegum is met with cracker and a slightly bitter woody bite as some peach develops on the exhale.

Smooth and round, the medium body has a fine carbonation and a cotton dry finish.
