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

A: The beer is rather hazy yellow in color and appears to have a moderate amount of carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that quickly died down, leaving lots of specks of bubbles on the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of gooseberries, mangos, and peaches are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of peaches along with notes of gooseberries. No bitterness is present.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little smooth and juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found the smoothness in this New England IPA and the aromas and flavors of peaches to be quite unique.

My taste and overall rating are impacted by the beer being too sweet for me. It looked and really smelled amazing, and I suspect in general it will be considered a very good NEIPA. I liked the fact that it was 6.6%, not 8.5% drinking like 6.6%.

On tap at Haymaker, NYC, it had nice NE style IPA looks with a hazy gold body, a 1-2 finger off white head that faded and left good spotty lacing. The nose and flavor were full of tropical notes and citrus which brought a mix of grapefruit, orange peel, lemon zest, peach and tangerine. Some malty backbone peeked through and gave it balance, but this did not unleash enough flavor to separate from the pack. A good overall beer, I wish Torch & Crown all the best as they get going.

Pours a nice hazy orange/looks just like pineapple juice. Great hop aroma, tons of citrus in the nose. Smooth drinking with a nice peach/citrus notes. Good malt backbone.
