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

Pours a dark yellow/orange hazy color, with fast fading minimal head. Scent is special, strong notes of fresh fruit and yeast. Taste follows, fruity front with a slight bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel and surprisingly smooth for the abv. Dry finish with both fruit and hop notes.

Picked up a can at Ma and Pa’s Alton NY.
Nice pour. Medium gold /touch of orange hazy with a medium full head. Short retention except halo and some lacing. Starts out with big orange/tangerine nose, but softens into more passion fruit/guava. Flavor mimics with some added melon and dry tartness. Yeasty. Some bitterness that is a bit out of place; doesn’t fit with the tropical notes and yeast.
Body is fairly smooth, nice feel if a bit thin.
Overall a good IIPA. Enjoyed but probably not again... in a world of equally good beers at this price point.

A: cloudy; medium gold in color; 1 finger white head that receded quickly to a thin collar; little lacing;

T: follows the nose up front; from the middle through the finish, it's ripe mango and very mild bitterness;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; moderately dry finish;

O: good, but there are many better options for the same money;

-Galaxy, Moteuka & Calypso hops.

A: An unfiltered nature dances in the aggressive carbonation. Milky orange density comes compliments the yeasty factor, is capped off by a 1.5 inch firm, frothy ivory head that is long lasting. Thick, clingy lacing. Lots of floaties and goodies. Stratified lacing.

S: Lots of strawberry and melon on the nose. Fresh passion fruit and mangoes, fresh scent of bubbleyum and cotton candy yeastiness. Nice strength.

T: Peaches and mangoes for flavor, bright and juicy, tangy upfront. Wet tropical, soft melon grind, and oranges. Some pear-apple and floral citrus hops round out. Tart yeastiness coats the tongue on the swallow.

M: Milky creamy malt base coats the tongue with a soft feel of carbonation.

O: Clean and well defined flavor. Fruity and tropical, what F.O. does best with some floral dryness on the finish. Well suited to style, strong drink-ability, and nice nose and first impression. Enjoyable throughout.

4.18/5  rDev +3.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Excellent head production and fantastic lacing; retention is solid. Brew is a pulpy dark orange, with an overwhelming amount of floaties and sediment, in particular toward the bottom.

Citrus and light honey on the nose, along with bright herbs. Restrained and subdued. Grapefruit, flowers, berries, orange, and pineapple come to mind.

Juicy and bursting with flavor on the palate! Orange, lemon, honeyed cracker, and papaya come to mind immediately, with lesser tones of melon, berries, and mango, along with a grapefruit and mint-leaf finish.

Smooth and soft, yet lively. Shockingly crispy for an 8.1% ABV brew.

L: Poured from a tallboy can to a snifter glass. Had an orange-ish color and a cloudy, almost viscous consistency. There was an inch of foamy, somewhat long-lasting head. Very good lacing.

S: A sweet and fruity aroma of hops, tropical fruit, malt, and citrus fruit.

T: Tasted of a small amount of malt (mostly in the finish), lots of citrus fruit (orange and tangerine, in particular), a moderate amount of hops, and lots of citrus fruit (mango, pineapple). An extremely focused and well-balanced flavor. It seems like it would be cloyingly sweet, but it manages to strike the right balance between sweet and bitter.

F: A good amount of carbonation with a sharp finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A solidly made DIPA. Worth a try.

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

A: The beer is very hazy dark yellow in color. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that quickly died down, leaving just a narrow collar around the edge and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of basil and tangerine citrus are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of passion fruit and tangerines with notes of peaches and hints of basil. Notes of lime also begin to creep in as the beer warms up. A light amount of bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is quite drinkable for an Imperial IPA because it masks its alcohol very well and it doesn't have that heavy of a mouthfeel.

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

Pourned into a 16 Hop Slam Snulip glass canned on 1/24/19. Pours a hazy yellow with loads of floaties, with a massive 2 plus finger sticky white head that leaves loads of thin wisps of webby lace with excellent retention. 4

Smell is ripe mellon, papaya, apricot, and grapefruit rind. 4.25

Taste follows honey dew, apricot, papaya, and a healthy dose of bitter grapefruit that lingers after each bold sip. 4.25

Mouthfeel is bigger than most, gentle carbonation but far from flat, not dry but sticky from all the dry hopping, and at 8.1% ABV extremely drinkable. 4.25

Overall this stuff stands out, amazing no but a really pleasant and welcome addition to what is distributed in NH. 4

A: slightly hazy burnt orange/caramel color with a thin white head

S: ripe mango, pineapple, passionfruit. Big sweet malt presence behind that along with more raw pineapple. A biscuity malt backbone

T: follows the nose. Passionfruit and pineapple upfront. Mild mango and caramel behind that. Some earthy hops as well with a slight tea leaf note. Finish is sweet with a hint of tea leaf

M: lighter side of full with low-medium carbonation

O: this is a ful beer with a big mouthfeel. It’s sweet, yet balanced and big. I’d consider this a sipper

Decent NEIPA with plenty of orange going on. Get's a little too bitter too fast overwhelming the tropical hops. Decent enough though, just not top shelf

Drinking out of can. Cool/unique looking can. This beer is incredibly good. Not much aroma here but the taste is incredible. Mouth feel is medium. The internet has too much hyperbole these days so i wont say this is the best x/y/z ive ever had but this is damn good. Cheers

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

Poured into a tall tulip.
The appearance was a bronzed hazy copper color with a finger and a half's worth of white foamy head that gently dissipated. Speckled lace dotted the sides nicely.
The aroma had some sweet tropical fruity hops up front with a touch of cream then some lemon. Slight grassy underneath.
The flavor took the prior mentioned aromas to blend sweetly and add in a keen crisp wafer/biscuity malt. Nicely blended aftertaste of hops and malts.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fine sipping quality about it. Low carbonation as expected. ABV felt on par. Nice finish of tropical fruity sticky sweetness.
Overall, pretty nice New England styled IPA that I'd come back to.

Poured a light, cloudy yellow body with decent head and lace. Slightly acidic aroma with hints of tropical fruits. The beer itself is smooth, crisp, slightly citric and soapy, no bitterness, easy to drink and not too sweet although main flavor is a sweet tropical fruit taste.

From 16oz can; no date on can but purchased soon after it was announced. Golden yellow pour with some haze/suspended yeast particles. Appealing tropical citrus nose. Palate and finish a little bitter and long-lasting. Maybe a touch of heat from the 8.1% ABV. Nice brew.

Cloudy, with lots of suspended yeasty beasties. Small but lasting head. Some swaths of lace on the glass. The color is lemony gold.

The smell leans to the malt. The hop is subtle, almost hard to detect. Unusual for the style.

The flavor is far more bitter than the smell suggests. High carbonation with a moderate body. The finish is all hop. Long aftertaste.

Pours an opaque light straw color with just under a finger of head. The nose has an earthy hop essence. The flavor is lush with piney hops. The body is right on for a NEIPA which is slightly less full than I prefer.

16 oz can poured into an imperial nonic.

Appearance
Hazed-out, cloudy blonde. Yeast sediment suspended throughout. 1 finger of creamy white head with good retention.

Nose
Pineapple, lemon-lime, peach, passion fruit, mango, honey, caramel, and oats.

Taste
Peach smoothie, pineapple juice, and lemon-lime. Orange cream, mango, and passion fruit. Honey and oat maltiness with dollops of caramel. Grapefruit zest lingers.

Mouthfeel
Full bodied, silky, smooth, and juicy with a light bitterness.

Overall
A lot more visibly yeasty, but certainly on par with all of their other beers.

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

Undated can into pint glass. Pours a murky orange-straw color with a minimal off-white head. Initial impression is citrus rind, grapefruit, tropical fruits, pear, a bit of pine resin, and some caramel binding things together. Mouthfeel is medium-sticky; carbonation is light. Alcohol is fairly well hidden, although there is noticeable warming in the finish. Speaking of which, the finish is fruity and clean, with very little lingering bitterness. Admittedly, there are a few hard edges in the taste, but these soften with warming (or perhaps my palate just acclimates as I drink). Overall, this isn't my absolute favorite from FO, but it's pretty good.

Can 040318:
Pours with a highly hazed yellow body. Head is white and grows to a decent height. Swirls of head grace the surface as it empties.

Nose is lemony citrus, with an aspect of sweetness. I think some of the sweetness comes from ripe canteloupe and papaya tropical undertones. I like Montueka, and think I get just a little bit of the "tropical lemongrass" I associate with it.

Taste overall is actually a bit more bitter than I would expect, but I enjoyed this aspect. What I didn't care much for is that it starts with a raw frictioned feel (I always guess oats with this feel). A pineapple, orange, papaya juice note sneaks through under this, muted by it. The rawness turns bitter "green" - pine and grass, which gains in strength to the end of the taste. By the end, this almost seems like a regular old IPA with a bit of a filmy feel. Note, that rawness I get up front softens slightly before I finish the glass.

Excpet for the opening, I liked the flavor and bitterness profile. But sometimes one aspect can throw off the overall enjoyment of a beer, and that basically happened here.

T - piney dankness. Grapefruit is there too. Some harshness in the middle. Moderate bitterness, no sweetness, low-moderate booziness.

F - medium body and carb.

O - dank-forward, but also lots of other nice flavors going on. I prefer their more citrus and tropical-forward brews though.
