16oz undated can.

Pours cloudy yellow with an inch of white fluff. Moderate retention and lacing. Peach, tangerine, mango in the nose. Medium bodied with a soft but crisp mouthfeel. Pithy citrus on the palate with minimal malt and a firm bitterness. Peach skins, grapefruit pith, orange zest. Finishes fairly raw and green.

Grabbed this at same time as God Loves Ugly and It's a Beautiful Thing were released recently. It's my least favorite of the 3. Still a solid NEIPA, but lacking the sheer wow factor that those other two bring in spades. I've had 3 of these now, all on a fresh palate, and it seems lackluster.

16 oz can.

Pours a hazy pale gold color with 2 fingers of soapy white head. Good head retention. Leaves some splotchy lacing.

The aroma is very herbal and tropical. Lots of mango, stone fruit and fresh tea. There's some pineapple and a bit of melon as well. Some light citrus, namely grapefruit. Idaho 7 definitely shines here.

The flavor brings notes of mango and fresh papaya, as well as melon, stone fruit, and herbal tea. Light grapefruit and tangerine. Finishes earthy and piney.

The feel is medium bodied with lower carbonation. Pillowy soft and exceptionally smooth with a dry finish. These guys have nailed down the "Tree House" formula for mouthfeel.

Overall, this is another great NEIPA from Modestman. I feel like I say that every time I review one of their beers, but they are consistently pumping out the best hoppy beers in New Hampshire.

Pours a murky orange that allows more light in around the edges, highlighting that it's not completely opaque. Head is two fingers of off-white foam. Aroma is tangerine, mango, lemon zest, light melon rind, and piney hops. While tropical fruits lead it, it doesn't lean into them hard, creating a balanced nose. Flavor profile is tangerine, mango, papaya, orange zest, lemongrass, and grassy, piney hops. It's a spiraling swirl of hop notes, never quite leaning into any one storyline, forming a more well-rounded thesis. Mouth feel is medium in thickness with a smooth, soft creamy texture. Overall, driven by hops, this one nets a quality balance between tropical fruits and evergreen forest notes. It's not a single focus beer.

Served in a 15.5oz Speigalau tulip from a 16oz can.

From a 32oz growler, filled at the brewery about 4 hours ago - the timing is important for reasons that will be explained later. Served in a spiegelau-style IPA glass.

Pours a cloudy, pale lemon color with a scant finger of bubbly head. Retention is OK, leaving a fizzy cap and a rousable thin sheet of lacing.

Nose is sweet and fruity with juicy-sticky ripe tropical fruits: pineapple, mango, papaya.

Taste is dank, juicy and unexpectedly semi-bitter. Sticky, overripe pineapple sweetness balanced with substantial grapefruit pith-and-peel bitterness. Papaya, oily orange and composty melon. Finishes with a boozy, composty grapefruit rind bitterness.

Feel is juicy, sticky. Medium bodied with prickly carbonation. Very slightly undercarbed but, again, there’s a reason for that. A little boozy warmth in the gullet, more than seems warranted at 7%.

Overall, a better than credible NEIPA. So, here’s what happened: the beer kicked during my fill, leaving the growler only half filled. I talked tap-puller-lady into letting me have it anyway, intending to drink it as soon as I got home. But then I took a nap instead. I figured I’d have to make allowances here and there but, really, there was no need: aside from pouring a little lame and having a maybe-less-than-perfectly-lively mouthfeel, it was still pretty darn terrific.

Poured into a 16 oz Nordic pint glass not sure when it was canned but sure it is 10 days max. Pours a hazy yellow with a half finger sticky white head that leaves thin lines of lace with nice retention. 4.5

Aroma is papaya, pineapple, tangerine, ripe melon, and apricot. 4.5

Taste follows papaya, cantaloupe, pineapple, tangerine, and apricot. 4.5

Mouthfeel is medium, soft creamy carbonation, not dry or sticky, and at 7% really easy drinking. 4.5

Overall another this is another winner from this excellent young brewery. 4.50

Always down for new NEIPAs from Modestman, who have recently been nonstop crushing the game with stuff like Center of Attention and Mega C.O.A. among others. This one was canned recently (four days ago, by my quick research on their socials, since they don't yet can-date) and features Idaho 7 and Citra hops. Sounds interesting. I've really been appreciating I7 more lately, so I hope it plays well with the staunch and consistent Citra. These guys have demonstrated their excellence when brewing with that one already, of course... just take a look at reviews for The Most Beautifullest Thing In This World; 'nuff said.

The pour here is... eh, a bit less-attractive than some other MM IPAs I've had (for the record, I gave TSRITE a weak appearance score, too, but it was even uglier than this). Of course, it's a starchy-looking, moderately-vibrant/semi-saturated yellow hue, but the head formation is a little weaker than I have seen in their other beers. Legs are okay enough, however, and lacing is soapy and consistent even though it's not as chunky or complex looking as their other beers either. Hmm, I hope this appearance doesn't say a lot about the rest of the beer, but let's not judge a book by its cover, eh?

Nose is gorgeous, so my fears were probably a bit premature. Huge papaya and guava upfront with tons of sticky dankness from Idaho 7 bringing up slight elements of herbal grassiness, resin, and slight diesel/catty notes. Orange-tangerine coming out as it warms, along with a hint of the melon-type fruit that I7 can also bring out. Very saturated smell here; it's nicely fruity but also herbal/floral/grassy with a good bit of complexity. A hint of spice and fruity gum esters comes out as this one gets to room temperature. Damn nice.

Flavor is similarly crazy and wonderfully-detailed. Right upfront is a big hit of ripe mango with a surprising hop bitterness turning into grassy funk and dankness. Mid-palate feels like it's more focused on the oat-laden maltiness before it quickly and deftly transitions to tangerine and some of the more "typical" Citra aspects. Finishes zesty and surprisingly clean (despite the appearance... I kid) with raw pink grapefruit rind and light resinous flavors. Feel is smooth and detailed, bringing a lot of character to the overall experience. MM again doing great work with their NEIPA program. I kind of wish they would get a little more "out there" with their hop combos, but X + Citra is usually a good formula anyway, so maybe don't try to fix what isn't broken. Either way, awesome stuff and I look forward to more.

Purchased from the brewery on 4/27/21
Opened and reviewed on 4/27/21

Tasting notes (from the can)
Idaho 7 & Citra Hops
Tangerine/Tropical Juice/Clean Pine/Soft mouthfeel.

A seriously white haze within an already very light and bright pale gold and hay color. Soft white and creamy foam head actually relaxes pretty quick but has a decent thin cover and a bit of lace.

The nose is bold! Huge hoppy aromatics coming out of this glass!! Freshly picked hop, crushed in your hands with sticky lupulin style aromatics. Husky earth notes, grainy, herbal and mandarin orange. Tangerine for sure. Big Nose.

First sip, first thought.... SMOOTH!! Lush, silky and fresh mouthfeel. Bitter pine and dry earthy tones upfront, it goes on for a while too. Once again, Tangerine...que the Zep song.

"Clean Pine" from the breweries tasting notes is spot on truth. Huge pine but definitely clean style, you'll have to sip it to find out how true that is.

Once again Modest Man of Keene NH kills it. Slays it. Damn.

Poured from a 16 oz can purchased from the brewery; fresh! Pours orangish-yellow opaque color with decent foamy head that slowly recedes. Tropical fruit sweetness with light - but refreshing - hops. Very nicely done.
