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

CAN
Hazy orange with a ton of floaties; tangerines + mango; candied orange slices, a bit of kronik, papaya, fresh apricots, cantaloupe balls + blueberry fruit salad, touch of lemon sorbet and a slight hop burn; smooth + salty.

Citra + Mosaic

3.75 4 4.25 4 4.25

Something like 10 weeks old, and nicely settled: a pile of fruit, but that hop burn must’ve been pretty rough at one stage. NEIPA by the books. Citra more than Mosaic, but as good an example of these two as you’ll find outside of the big guns from Mass, VA + NYC. Might've scored higher if it hadn't turned into yeast soup in the bottom half of the can.

Boombox Brewing 'Synth Wave' @ 8.5% , served from a 473 ml can
A-pour is a orange juice color from can to a hazy yellow/gold in the glass with a small off-white head leaving a spotty lacing along the tulip
S-orange tang
T-tang on steroids
MF-ok carbonation , feels full bodied , warming
Ov-juice bomb + , should be a NE IPA perhaps

I got this as an extra during a trade. And I'm glad I did...

L: exactly as a NEDIPA should... orange-ish and opaque. A short-lasting cream colored thick head.

S: Juice. Orange and others, though couldn't place which ones. Mango? I've had mango nectar and I get some of that smell. But there are others. It just smells tropical. Like juice that's asking for some 151, a touch of grenadine, and ice...

T: thick and juicy. Think orange juice with all the pulp but without the bits 'n pieces. Orange, tangerine, mango, hint of pineapple. It's not straight up juicy like Tree House, there's some bitterness to it like some of Trillium's has. But this beer stands on its own and shouldn't be compared. It's good.

That all said, it does get tiresome. It's not a simple, quaffing beer.

F: thick like nectar.

O: I wish I had a few more cans. I wouldn't want a case, though I never buy cases anymore. But a few more cans would be great.

Poured from a 473ml can. Synth Wave is a double IPA and is hopped with Citra, Mosaic, and Motueka.
Another great hazy double IPA from Boombox.
A amber/orange pour with a fruit filled nose, a big chewy hazy here.
