4/5  rDev -5.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 16oz can into my BeerAdvocate teku. Canned on 5/21/20.

Appearance: light yellow hue with lots of haze and a finger of frothy white foam atop. Looking good!

Smell: rich tropical-fruit aroma with just a little earthy dankness. I quite like it.

Taste: citrusy flavors; grapefruit and orange with a generally smooth flavor. There's a little bit of bitterness bite toward the end, but it's relatively mild. It's quite nice.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and good creaminess for the style.

Overall: a tasty middle-of-the-road hazy IPA. I think it's a good beer, because I like the style, but TBH it doesn't have a feature that really makes it stand out to me.

Close to a finger worth of bright white foam, poor retention, lacing has stick and fares better. The liquid is completely opaque and evokes an image of pulp-in white grapefruit juice, dense looking. The nose is clean and direct, coal tar, pine sap, grapefruit pith, peppercorns and angular papaya, guava fruit scents, unforced length. Medium-bodied, noticeably dry and tart but not necessarily with a tacky, sticky texture. Offers more grassiness here but, again, dry and not that dank. Piney, citrusy, not getting any floral notes. The more you sip the more biscuit comes out. Melon, pear notes pair up with the aforementioned papaya, guava. Excellent prickle to the carbonation, adds refreshing liveliness. Kudos that the dryness does not become a distraction as it increases drinkability. The more I sipped, the more I liked it. (Canned 6/24/20)

On draught at the brewery. It pours a nearly opaque, pale tangerine color with a super creamy milk white cap that looks like a nitro pour (but it isn't) and thick, soapy lacing. A very attractive pour. Its nose features lemon peel, grapefruit, resinous pine, and floral hops. The taste opens with tart - almost bitter - grapefruit rind and lemon peel. At mid-sip there are distinct notes of pine needles. As the glass warms there is increasing oaty sweetness. It's very crisp and clean with a moderate bitter bite at the finish. Unfortunately, the hop bill doesn't appear on the website or on the board at the brewery. It has a great mouth feel, which balances creaminess and crispness. It's pleasantly carbonated and is an easy drinker at 6.5% ABV. A second pour is welcome. Overall, Source of Hoppiness is a very good NEIPA; highly flavorful with a dry fruitiness and pleasing mouth feel. Very well done.

16 ounce can in a stemmed tulip glass. canned date of 10/22/19.

Pours a watery milky looking pale straw grass color, whatever that is. Unfiltered and messy. Sports a sloid 1F white cap that drops quickly and leaves a good amount of web lacing.

The aroma is a mix of citrus hops, some citrus rind, juice, alcohol, and onion malt.

Quite flavorful. Grapefruit rind, some lemon and other citrus. Malt is clean, light and grassy.

Medium-light feel. Not a juice bomb, thankfully. Some hop tang, not bitter. Clean lingering finish.

Better than most NEIPAs that I've had. Even so, one and done.

Good beer. Not the best NEIPA I've had, but definitely not bad. Here goes:

A: Opaque and milky; very light yellow color. Head and lacing are great.

S: Not very robust. Can detect citrus, melon, and lighter fruits. Hops are very robust and fruity.

T: Very light-bodied and enjoyable. Mostly citrus but without any sour, lemony aftertaste - this makes the beer quite drinkable.

F: Light and easy-drinking.

O: Great for a warm summer day.
