Can (6/4 Release)

Cloudy orange with a small, bubbly white head. Dank, ripe fruit aromas...grapefruit, mixed berries, earthy pine, scallions, faint lime. Mango, pulpy grapefruit, fresh hoppy greenness, creamsicles, strawberries, and weed. Pungently hoppy, but pleasant to drink. Fluffy medium-plus feel, satisfyingly dry in the finish - super drinkable. On the aggressive side for a NEIPA; I like the interesting hop combo...kind of a wild dank green character more than anything, but creamy smooth. Good stuff as I have come to expect from NA.

16 ounce can in a beer glass.

Pours a murky satin finish blood orange color. A 1f white cap drops quickly to a thin film and leaves abundant lacing.

Aromatic hope shine. Lots of citrus zest, stone fruits, dank earthiness, and pine needles.

Citrus grapefruit, lemon and lime rind, stone fruit soaked oats.

Neipa in appearance yet not very juicy. More resinous and bitter with a medium feel. Fruit forward with oats for body and balancing the juices.

The hop trio works here.

A: Pours a murky medium golden apricot in color with moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and moderate bright orange + peach + pale orange + bright yellow colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense sudsy creamy foamy white head that slowly reduces to a couple of medium sized patches of medium thick film surrounded by a large patch of very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of juicy citrus/grapefruit + citrus/orange + citrus/lime + strawberry + tropical/papaya + dank resinous hops over the top of light to moderate aromas of biscuit + pale + oat malts with a light amount of sugary sweetness.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of biscuit + pale + oat malts with a light amount of sugary sweetness. That is followed by just shy of strong flavors of juicy citrus/grapefruit + citrus/orange + citrus/lime + strawberry + tropical/papaya + dank resinous hops which impart a light amount of bitterness which fades away fairly quickly leaving moderate lingering citrus + dank hop flavors.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly creamy with a moderate amount of soft/fluffiness mid-body and a light amount of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and a wonderfully creamy + soft/fluffy mouthfeel. Very enjoyable with a different but quite interesting hop profile that included citrus + tropical fruits as well as some serious dankness.
