First thing- I wouldn’t consider this a neipa. That being said, it’s a darn tasty ipa.

Looks like a hazy orange bunch of goodness.

Smell of light citrus with a bit of malt. Not the super citrus juice hit you get from a New England, more subtle and crisp.

Taste is similar to smell, but better. Nice bitterness but not overwhelming.

Light to medium feel.

Overall this is a delicious beer. What I would describe as a well done northwest style citrus ipa. Very drinkable on its own or with food, refreshing, not too heavy. I’m ready for another one...

Pours a cloudy orange color with a thick foamy head. Head retention is good. Lacing is very good. Nice hoppy aroma. Doesn't seem very juicy, though. I get a very small amount of orange and more earthiness. Taste isn't bad. It definitely isn't juicy, though. Large amount of bitterness. I get a lot of grassiness and maybe some orange. More earthy than any other hazy IPA or NEIPA I have ever had. I don't think NEIPA is the right category. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

I like the haze. I like the taste. This has become something of a go to when we find it. The only possible issue was a somewhat irony aftertaste which could have been polished. Very chill hazy boi

Not to hazy other than kind of a chill haze. olden/orange in color with lots of visible carbonation. Two finger head made of large foamy bubbles just slightly off white in color.

Smells like citrus pulp. Also picking up something like a tropical fruit similar to pineapple. Smells refreshing.

Taste is orange pulp up front followed by a slight bitterness that seems like an orange rind. Taste dissapears quickly while the bitterness sticks around for just a bit. Maltiness seems to off balance the hops by a bit more on the taste.

Mouth feel is light and finishes quickly off the back of the mouth. There is a faint lingering bitterness.

This seems totally different than the Fresh Squeezed IPA from Deschutes. The bitterness is quite a bit lighter. And the flavor does not seem to be as full, just seems a bit thinner. The ABV does not show at all in the taste and the drinkability is very easy and smooth. Even though this does feel a bit thin on the nose presence and the flavor body, I like it. I had a 19.2 oz. can and when I poured the second half of the beer I found a bit more haze. Perhaps some pulp hiding towards the bottom of the can? For fans of an easier drinking IPA without a lot of bitterness and some orange presence this should fit the bill. Cheers!
