From a 16 oz. can acquired and sampled on May 15, 2022.

The appearance is a mostly hazy and pulpy orange-amber with a modest cream colored head.

Aroma of grapefruit, pineapple, orange, melon and a lower profile breaded note. No alcohol on the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

The taste is sweet with a tropical burst and a moderately bitter hopped finish. Low to no booze bite. Like so many others in this category. I run out of things to say about them.

[IMG] When Disaster Strikes, tasting better now than earlier. Poured into a 16 oz Nordic pint glass not sure when it was canned with in the last 10 days. Pours an attractive cloudy orange yellow with tiny head that leaves thin streaks of lace after each sip, with little retention. 4

Aroma is mango, tangerine, a hint of gonja, blueberry, and apricot. 4

Taste follows mango, tangerine, a little Marijuana, blueberry, and apricot. 4.25

Mouthfeel is a little bigger than medium, a little more carbonation than expected, not sticky or dry, and at 8.5% it is easy drinking. 4.25

Overall not crazy hazy, but more SOS or Dinner. I would recommend. 4.25

Grab from the brewery on 2/23/22
Opened and reviewed same day

Tasting notes on the can:
Single hop--Mosiac.
Overripe mandarin/candied lychee/tart pineapple/ floral/creamy mouthfeel


L: a soft, hazy golden color with a high-rising, all white foamy dome of froth. Classic NE looks.

Aromatics: sweet fruity hops forward, spicy floral, lychee for sure, clementine and vanilla cream.

Feelz: A lighter body for NE styles, juicy AF with a relaxed, creamy texture. No dryness, but silky and fresh for sure.

Flavors: earthy mandarin orange, sweet fruity currents pop from the Mosiac only hop complexity. Spicy stone fruit all over the place. Easy, yet serious complex. Malt is golden grainy and clean Ale juicy.

Overall vibe. Fresh, solid, juicy, fruity with husky edges and smooth, light feels. I love a single hop NEIPA because you know exactly where those hop flavors come from. Modest Man just crushing this style, time and time again.

From a 16oz can, undated. Released at the brewery today. Served in a spiegelau IPA glass.

Pours an only moderately hazy honey-gold with two fingers of soft, soapy suds. Retention is excellent, leaving a heavy, lathery cap and fat gobs of lacing.

Nose is rich and fruity, flowery, sweet and bready. Aroma of sweet Hawaiian rolls and orange slices.

Taste is sweet orange slices, white bread and a sherry-like booze flavor. Tasting orange peel, citron, camphor, lime and mint. Slightly catty with a smidge of pine at the finish.

Feel is clean and juicy, medium bodied and brightly carbonated. Drying, with boozy warmth in the gullet.

Overall, a well brewed, intensely flavorful IPA. Brewer’s description says overripe mandarin, I say sweet orange slices, either way think ‘orange.’
