Let's see what can be learned after a pint can has its contents poured into a clear glass liter mug. The color is copper-amber, more toward translucent than opaque. The head is a less than modest in amount, white. There's a very nice aroma of malt and hops, just what you want in an ale. The taste is malty sweet first, then drys out with a mostly bitter hop finish. Rich enough and smooth enough for any IPA carrying an 8+% ABV, this has a very good taste and a great balance between hops, malt and alcohol. Much more like an Imperial IPA than a New England IPA, this is way above average regardless of the category.

16 oz can

Slightly cloudy, (not full-on opaque), orange golden, white head. Good mix of hop flavors in the aroma, grapefruit citrus, grassy, a touch of pine. Same with taste, with moderate bitterness. A touch of sweetness from the malt. Medium bodied.

A - Medium copper colored pour with a thick creamy layer of foam parked on top.

S - Pungent, dank, juicy grapefruit, and some tropical fruit.

T - Grapefruit and tropical fruit from start to finish. Ends with a nice fruity bitterness that lingers on the palate with just a slight bit of piney bitterness.

M - Big medium body with soft carbonation on the palate.

O - This beer is way better than it's current score of 3.85. Packed full of juicy tropical fruit.

Consumed 5/9/20
Shit - didn't notice how old this was. Downright ancient in IPA years.

Beautiful, creamy off-white head sits atop your typically chalky orange/muddy copper NEIPA body. I'm learning to just accept the look of these beers even if I don't find it particularly appetizing. The lacing is pretty, for whatever that's worth (3.5 in my book). Smells great; lotsa citrus and all dat. Taste does not follow at all, however. It's kind of odd; the "teabag taste" from another review is on point. The clerk where I bought this said something about a birch addition but he might be thinking of a different Logyard beer. Medium-bodied and very smooth, it frankly drinks like something more sessionable. It's also got the low bitterness that's typical of the style. Kind of a weird beer, but I don't dislike it at all. Have to sample a fresher one at some point, though.

Another cheap pounder from the Giant Eagle in Gibsonia. Canned on 11/20/19 damn 5 months old probably not terrible but I dive in.
A - Ow dear some sediment chunks in the one rather big ones too. Beer is carbonated giving me a 1/2 inch of froth with a very hazy amber brown color.
S - Good smell a bit musty but the hops smell pretty bright.
T - Not so much vegitial as the last reviewer said but it does taste of typical fanfare for a new England style IPA bitter hops meets a sort of tea bag taste. Kind of smooth in in own way.
M - Best part of the beer is how smooth the 8% goes down! Not bad!

Overall more of a traditional new england style IPA and even though its a tad old it drinks better than I expected. Decent beer!

16oz can into a pint glass. Canned 1/24/20, so a mere 2 weeks old.

Looks decent in the glass. Hazy amber body with a small white head. Little in the way of lacing.

Aroma is a fruit & veg mix

The taste follows the nose. Not unpleasant, but rather an odd mix

Mouth medium, finish the aforementioned fruit & veg.

Overall, a strange drink. Perhaps a few more weeks in the can would clarify the flavors a little.
