4.14/5  rDev +5.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

A- Hazy sick looking, dark yellow with a white head that lingers. Good leasing
S- fragrant aroma of tropical fruit sweetness, I get mangos and pineapple.
M-Body is medium with carbonation at the higher end.
T- there is some complexity to this beer, it appears sweet throughout and lends itself to a berry flavour that is reminiscent of Mosaic hops.
O- this is wonderful beer very heavily hopped, fruity and floral, however I’d have to agree with the other post below as it seems to miss the mark of some of the other NEIPAs I’ve had in that the juiciness and hop punch aren’t there. Still a nice brew, and I recommend you try it for yourself.

Large initial head which leaves a lattice of lace. The liquid is appropriately cloudy with a whitish golden color.

Pleasant pale malt start to the nose with a floral to spicy hop smell. Very nice combination.

The taste is slightly sweeter and the hop is slightly more bitter than I'd expect from the aroma. Full bodied with a lower level of carbonation. There's a long, lingering aftertaste that initially begins with a 50-50 blend with the pale malt. A touch of yeast and alcohol round out the taste.

Pours a pretty clear amber-brass color with an active three-plus fingers of soapy off-white head. Decent retention; swooping lacing. (3.75)

Citrus and pineapple layers. Lime, orange, pineapple, sweet whiff of malt at the end. (4)

Follows the nose, sweet and tangy citrus and tropical flavors with light bitterness and a biscuity malt undercurrent. (4)

Medium body with well-hidden alcohol, medium carbonation a slight fluff to the feel and a sweet citrusy finish. (3.75)

This is a nice IPA. Maybe not completely true to what it's labeled as, but a solid, drinkable hoppy beer nonetheless.
It pours nice enough. Good head. I hate to be that guy, but it is not cloudy enough by any means to be calling itself a NEIPA. Either way, it looks good. The smell and flavor are both very citrus with actually the impression of some citrus tartness which is nice. The malt profile is there but not overbearing or particularly noticeable. It is easy drinking with no trace of alcohol.  This is a solid IPA. It actually surprised me. However as the new-tangled IPA far gets bigger and bigger I imagine eventually it will be frowned upon to be crystal clear and not creamy-feeling. Either way, very nice beer, I would have it again. (3.75)

3.85/5  rDev -1.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Can: Poured a hazy bright yellow/orangey color ale with a nice large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrusy floral hops notes with light pineapple and tropical fruit notes also discernible. Taste is a mix of citrusy floral hops notes with some light pineapple notes with some tropical fruits notes. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Solid hops presence with minimal bitterness and good drinkability.
