Canned on 6/8/20

Pours an opaque, dingy burnt orange body topped with a finger and a half of fluffy white head; decent retention fades to barely a half-finger of creamy cap, moderate collar, and a splotchy walling of thin, compact, webby lacing.

Aroma opens powerfully with an overwhelming sticky grapefruit resin, showing hints of syrupy stone fruits beneath; advancing lemon pound cake almost dramatically takes hold on the back end, highlighting some contrast in an expressively sweet bouquet.

Taste brings almost watered down overripe stone fruits upfront alongside thickening notes of mango syrup; tones of grapefruit resin-saturated malt over the mid-palate lead into restrained notes of lemon pound cake dominating the back end of the profile.

Mouthfeel offers a flaky medium body accompanied by upper-moderate carbonation; a soft grit across the mid-palate precludes a wispy bitterness developing quietly into the back end as a drying, slightly prickly finish remains engaging.

A wavering expression of hoppy sweetness and indecision, this NEIPA is inconsistent, though manages it's more potent aspects to remain firmly and surprisingly inoffensive; there's a balanced foundation here that just needs some fine-tuning, despite some glaring weaknesses in the profile.
