12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 8/18/2019. Pours very hazy deep golden amber/light orange color with a 1 finger dense and rocky off white head with awesome retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice dense foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big ruby grapefruit, tangerine, orange juice, lemon, peach, pineapple, apricot, mango, honeydew melon, citrus peel/rind, wood, peppercorn, pine, wheat, cracker, biscuit dough, light honey/toast, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/earthy hops and bready malt notes; with big strength. Taste of big ruby grapefruit, tangerine, orange juice, lemon, peach, pineapple, apricot, mango, honeydew melon, citrus peel/rind, wood, peppercorn, pine, wheat, cracker, biscuit dough, light honey/toast, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Mild pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, woody, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of ruby grapefruit, tangerine, orange juice, lemon, peach, pineapple, apricot, mango, honeydew melon, citrus peel/rind, wood, peppercorn, pine, wheat, cracker, biscuit dough, light honey/toast, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/earthy hops and bready malt flavors; with an awesome malt/bitterness balance; and no cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky/bready, fairly sticky, and lightly resinous/rindy mouthfeel that is fantastic. Mild increasing warmth of 8.1% after the finish. Overall this is an outstadning NEDIPA. All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/earthy hops and bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink for the ABV, with the mildly bitter/resinous/drying finish. Fantastic soft/silky feel. Fantastic Centennial showcase. Very juicy, and fairly dank/earthy hops; with a good sized wheat/oat/malt backbone. Light residual sweetness with lingering resin dryness. A highly enjoyable offering, and outstanding spot on style example.

The looks are fantastic, the smell still subdued, the taste seems fresher, juicier, and the mouthfeel fuller and sweeter.

A marked improvement from my first go around.
----------------------------
Dirty golden yellow body; frothy, sudsy head; clinging sheets of foam inside the glass. Muddled smell combination of dull cereal grains and old citrus pith; caramel. The taste blends elements of citrus rind, powder sugar, caramel, alcohol, and some vinous hop bitterness. Medium body; residual sugar presence but some ethanol burn on the palate; a bit sweet with a tart juiciness but also a noticeable boozy dryness.

Well, it has a dirty haziness and some old citrus smell and taste elements, but the entirety just falls into a muddled blop of a beer. Overly sweet, not enough fresh juiciness or memorable hop character.

L: Opaque tropical fruit juice, an interesting orange/peach/pinkish hue, with a two finger frothy sticky head with great retention but little lacing. Even the head has a slight pink hue to it.

S: Smells of nectarine and orange with loads of confectioners sugar and a hint of booze.

T: Follows the nose with notes of earth/grass. Has a slightly drier and bitter finish, but overall its sweet - near cloyingly sweet as it takes on a few degrees of warmth.

F: Thick carbonated sugary syrup. Fine if you like your beer filling.

O: This juice hides it's alcohol well, but due to it's cloying sweetness, I would have preferred a lighter version.

12 oz can

Pours hazy orange, white head dissipates to a lacing.

Aroma of fresh orange, cereal malts, zest and mild spice.

Tastes of orange juice, citrus zest, biscuit and honey malt, and fresh citrusy hops.

Medium body, tingly carbonation on the tongue.

Very tasty and juicy NEIPA. The flavor on this one is quite enjoyable. Definitely worth trying.

Appearance - Pours nearly opaque dark orange with a great soapy white head excellent retention. Lots of spotty lacing.

Aroma - Excellent combination of citrus, floral hops, grapefruit, nice sweet nose with a balanced dankness.

Taste - Taste perfectly matches the nose, I am getting a little more overly ripe peach and mango in the taste. The nose made me think this would be a little more bitter. Tons of ripe fruit and earthy hops.

Feel - Medium bodied nice soft feel well carbonated with a nice dry finish.

Overall - Really well done the alcohol is no where to be found, love the taste.
