3.71/5  rDev -12.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a narrow pint glass: color is opaque gold, dense, head is bright white with fine bubbles, good retention and lacing.

Smell is light neutral tropical fruit and alcohol.

Taste is similar with mixed tropical fruit, maybe some citrus rind, and booziness upfront, malt character is low and wheat/oat does not stand out.

Mouthfeel is on the bitter side for NEIPA which works for the strength, drying alcohol and bitterness leave it strong on the tongue.

Overall a big beer with strong alcohol presence in nose/flavor/presence, hops are neutral tropical fruit but seem muddled.

4.4/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Pours a very hazy orange / straw color, appropriate fluffy white head. Great hop aromas - pretty dank. Very flavorful - lots of orange, citrus, dankness. Very juicy. Appropriate carbonation. Overall a fantastic surprise DIPA from a brewery I never tried before. Very well done.

This is one of the best of New Trail - and that is saying a lot. Has all the goods plus the creaminess factor. Don’t miss this one if you are lucky enough to find it.
