16oz undated can.

Pours cloudy yellow with an inch of white fluff. Moderate retention and lacing. Unripe peach, pineapple in the nose. Medium bodied with a soft mouthfeel. Pithy citrus on the palate with minimal malt and a firm bitterness. Hard peaches, melon, grapefruit pith. Finishes with a hoppy bite and a bit raw.

From growler filled at brewery in Keene three hours ago.

Pours into my tulip glass an opaque pale gold shade with a creamy off white head. A small amount of soapy lace.

Scent is peach, mango, citrus. Tangerine. Pine needles.

Taste is mango and assorted tropical fruits. Oh there is a wild long finish with a pretzel like note followed by a sweet orange note. There's a growing spicy / herbal dankness that is almost oniony. Pine resin. Blueberries appear.

Mouth is soft and creamy but with a fine carbonation. Medium +

This is really good. Soft NEIPA feel with a nice range of fruit hop notes and some resin and dankness hidden in there as well. Right up my alley.

Can from the Packie
Hazy lemon yellow with a decent sized frothy white head.
Lemon grapefruit dominate but hints of pine and tropical fruit peak out. Weak bready maltiness. Nice ipa.

Beautiful indeed. I keep bouncing between this and God Loves Ugly as perhaps the greatest examples of the NEIPA I've ever been lucky enough to enjoy. So hazy, so juicy, so smooth, and soooo drinkable - my only issue is that they go down way too fast. Incredible sauce, and finally a reason to have the upper half of my 4.5+ ratings reserved for such treats.

This is a Modest Man classic. Creator of outstanding New England IPA's. Purchased from the brewery on 3/10/22. Opened and reviewed same day. Single Hop--Citra

Looks: Milky, chunky-hazy creamy thick golden cream color. Fat white foam is dense and robust. Eventually falls with plenty of cover and lace.

Nose: Creamy mango chunk, vanilla and orange, husky, dry earth smells from the Citra hop and heady malted grains.

Flavor: Very dry earth tones, dried leaves and dank peppery herbs upfront, mango and citrus fruitiness with an ultra smooth, creamy and yes, pillowy mouth feel from the dank, creamy golden grains and malt. The Lupulin pops right out and is not mistakenly the star of this complex flavor spectrum.

A world class New England Hazy IPA right here in my home town.

Many thanks to SawDog505 for this can!

A - Pours an opaque medium to dark yellow gold color with thin, frothy white lacing.

S - Citrus, peach, passion fruit, and a little bit of lime on the nose. There is also some degree of peppery spiciness in the nose as well.

T - Follows the nose with peach, citrus, sweet grapefruit, passion fruit, and lingering peppery citrus rind on the back side.

M - Big medium body with a dry finish.

O - A solid IPA worth a try!

Pours a beautiful milky yellow with a half finger white head that leaves thin streaks of lace and excellent retention. 4.75

Aroma tangerine, pineapple, papaya, passionfruit, hint of blueberry, and apricot. 4.5

Taste follows tangerine, passionfruit, papaya, pineapple, a little blueberry, and apricot really balanced. 4.5

Mouthfeel is above average, not sticky or dry, soft creamy carbonation, and at 7% it drinks bigger in flavor but really easy going down. 5

Overall this is another exceptional beer from this very young brewery. 4.5

Poured from a 16 oz can purchased from the brewery in Keene, NH. Pours opaque yellow with consistent two fingers of head. Tastes of subtle citrus with sweet hops. Great lacing. Definitely first rate.

16 oz can.

Pours an opaque pale yellow color with a small white cap. Very little retention. Leaves a few spots of cobweb lacing.

Strong aromas of peach, orange creamsicle, grapefruit, pineapple, and mango puree. Faint vanilla and graham cracker.

The flavor is quite citrusy, bringing notes of oranges and tangerines, grapefruit, and lemon meringue. Some peaches, pineapple, overripe mango and a subtly piney finish. There's a nice graham cracker malt backbone.

The feel is medium bodied with moderately low carbonation. Velvety smooth and creamy. Soft finish.

Overall, this is definitely a great NEIPA. I mentioned in my review of God Loves Ugly that the hop profile in that beer reminded me of prime Other Half, and this one brings the same thoughts to mind (Citra Daydream). Definitely need to pay these guys a visit soon.
