3.85/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pour is medium thick. Aroma is a kind of generic contemporary fruit hop profile: intense tropical fruit and citrus, zero malt balance.

The flavor is much smoother than the aroma: mango and lime balancing each other out somewhat. Nothing special by 2019 standards, but fine enough.

4.25/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Arrives a cloudy honey color with a modest but fulsome head that leaves webby lacing

Smell: Mango and sugar cookie aromatics with pine tones

Taste: Sugar cookie malt and mango forward with passionfruit and pine tones building; a bit too sweet in the finish but the tropical fruit and bitter elements balance

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with creamy carbonation

Overall: This is a little boozy and sweet for my palate but it is nicely balanced

A solid NEIPA. Aroma and flavor are juicy with tropical fruit, citrus, and hints of dank pine. Mouthfeel is middle of the road for a NEIPA, not quite soft and pillowly. Slightly boozy, more than I would like for 8% abv.

16oz can pour into a teku aggesive pour led to minimal 1 finger head but good lacing with the hazy bright orange glow.
Strong nots of ripe mango stone fruit .
Low bitternss and overwhelm tropical notes and does not move to that over ripen fruit notes .
Mouthell low carb and touch thin for the style and 8abv.

Over all for a double would like more in the mothfeel department
