look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Light yellow colored body; thick, creamy head. Powerful scents of grapefruit and pineapple. The taste is a milder form of the aroma; strong hop bitterness. Medium-body; tart and acidic on the palate; dry overall.

This beer was packaged four months ago and had a best before date of two months ago. All the same, the smell is fantastic and the taste sharp and bold. I'm betting a fresher version would taste even better.

Moderate to vigorous pour yields a 1/2 inch white head over a hazy, light golden body with some lacing. Nose of slight tropical fruit, pine, and citrus. Taste mirrors nose somewhat with slight tropical fruit flavors, some pine and citrus pith bitterness on the finish. Nice feel and overall a fine job from Framingham, MA. Cheers!

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Look: Looks like freshly poured orange juice.

Smell: Vanilla, tangerine, grapefruit,

Taste: Super creamy, with a mixture of dry grapefruit, pine and spices. Potpourri undertones. Crisp. Perfectly balanced. Amazing dank juicy finish smooth and not at all bitter. The spices give it a subtle lingering bite... Wow. This is really good. Its more tart than hoppy.

Feel: Smooth and juicy. Just amazing.

Overall: This is my new favorite IPA. I love a little spice in an IPA. Would be amazing breakfast beer. Buy this.

Canned on 9/6/18 opened on 9/17/18

A thickly settled style liquid, mucho hazy, milky tones within a straw-gold color. All white foam, thick at first, receded pretty fast with only minimal coverage.

The hoppy aroma popping off from the Citra and Galaxy hops have serious bursts of citrus and tropical tones. A very fresh, lupilin powder and hearty husk notes are most impressive. There is a big earthy factor, mixed with old herbs and spices, mint and cucumbers seems to balanceout the big fruit explosion. It genuinely has a freshly crushed up hoppy style nose.

A full, smooth and heady mouthfeel crosses over into DIPA land. Semi-crisp bite also mutates into dry, earthy, grainy and sharp and quickly back to long and lush again. Nice texture, bigger than I expected before I saw the liquid!

Hearty grains and an earthy toned hop explosion hits you first in the flavor spectrum. Sour and tropical fruits, sweet and tangy citrus with what seems like wheat and oats within the malty balance. The malt is classically light, but sweet, then grainy.
The hop combo is very dense, fresh and assertive. Fresh lupilin and green husky tones makes these hops seem very fresh and lively. A low level, dry kick, not ever bitter but tangy with slightly sharp edges to the hop taste.

Certainly in the New England style approach with a righteous hop complexity and rad feel. Happily surprised.

Wow this really surprised me. Found this at the local store when I was without my phone and picked it up thinking it must be a NEIPA based on the name being a very NE style of response to how are you. Duh.
Well I was delighted to find a crisp delicious slightly acidic and lovely APA.
Honestly I can't keep the difference between APA and NEIPA straight, but lots of aromas like grapefruit green apple stone fruits with a very tasty and crisp acidity this is just a great quencher with excellent mouthfeel and tastes delicious from start to finish. I will buy this if there isn't any Toppling Goliath Pseudo Sue around. It scratches the same itch. Might even be smart and buy this instead. It's a couple bucks cheaper.

Can from Whole Foods
Hazy yellow orange color with a decent sized frothy white head. Fruity juicy tropical nose with hints of earth grass and pine. Flavor follows the aroma. Somewhat chunky gritty mouthfeel. Pretty nice beer.

One of the juiciest, lovely. A favorite.
A) a waif, fizzy head that fades quickly, dotty lace, dark obscure, cloudy golden-orange body.
S) Big Nose! Of citrus, orange zest, tangerine, orange creamsicle, mango papaya on a creamy malt base, with just enough bittering hops to save it from being all-fruit bomb. Very Juicy.
T) More and juicier, like strained out of the blender, almost pulpy. Long profile.
F) Mid weight, creamy, low carb, filling - a meal.
O) Original, powerful, if you like fruit and power in a single IPA this is it.

Poured into an English pint glass.
The appearance was a bright yellow pale color with a small cap of a little white foamy head. It dissipated at a moderate pace. Light messy lace.
The aroma had a strong scent of hop oils, semi-pith like character mulling about some pine and melon tones.
The flavor leaned towards the spiciness initially and seemed to develop a sly balance of spiciness and hop oils. However, the melon cleanly moves in underneath with a keen sweetness that bled into the aftertaste with the hop oils.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation and ABV felt on par. Sly creamy edge seemed to clip at the spicy harshness nicely and it seems just enough for a extremely well done balance. Aptly noted crisp to spicy hop finish.
Overall, very nicely done AIPA I'd have again.

On tap at 2 Bros. Pours a hazy brownish yellow with an inch of head. Good amount of lacing. The aroma is lots of juicy fruits. Grapefruit, pineapple, tangerine, mango, lime and papaya. The taste is grapefruit and papaya mostly with some dank hop notes this time. Dank and grapefruit finish. Hints of stone fruits. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Mild alcohol heat. Worth buying again.
