Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on December 9, 2019. Double New England style IPA brewed with Mosaic, Citra and Mandarina Bavaria hops. Nice body and feel.

Notes via stream of consciousness: This is a "Double New England Style IPA"; I can't recall if I've ever had one. It features Mosaic, Citra, and Mandarina Bavaria hops which sounds good. How strong is it? Hmmm, the label doesn't say. OK, it's poured a cloudy orange body beneath an inch and a half of rocky off-white foam. The aroma is really nice with notes of orange, mango, roses, soft red berries, nectarine, and dried pine needles. On to the flavor... there's a lot more malt than I thought there would be based on the aroma but that's just because I wasn't smelling it and forgot that it's a double NEIPA. The malt is grainy, cereal-like, and sweetish. The fruitiness of the hops is limited compared to the aroma, and mainly displays peach, floral character, and orange marmalade. There are other lesser notes (mango, etc.) if you want to seek them out. There's a bit of spiciness, especially in the finish, and I wonder if at least some of that, or even all of that, is from alcohol. Their website currently lists it at 8.3% alcohol by volume but that's not really THAT strong, and it never stands out beyond a clear presence so who knows? It's firmly bitter, and it finishes mainly dry with that spiciness, a touch of fruit, and some pine lingering. In the mouth it's medium bodied but seemingly fuller due to all of the extra proteins. That leaves it gently bristling at first but then creamy and smoother. Looking back, the head held up really well and there's plenty of lacing left about the glass. I liked this beer quite a bit. Putting the "double" spin on the NEIPA style worked really well and I wonder if we'll be seeing more of these in the future. Nicely done.

A: The beer is very hazy dark yellow in color. It poured with a finger high frothy white white head that has very good retention properties and consistently left a quarter finger high head covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate to strong aromas of citrusy and tropical fruit hops are present in the nose - tangerine and mango seem to stand out in particular.
T: The taste has lots of flavors of gooseberry, mango and stone fruit with some hints of pine towards the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and very juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I really liked the juiciness of this New England IPA and how well it hid any traces of alcohol from the taste.

12 oz can poured into a stemless wine glass.

Murky orange-off white head with some decent lacing.

Sweet orange, mango and passion fruit on the nose and palate.

Thick feeling mouthfeel without feeling heavy.

Starts off nice but the sweetness builds leaving this one tough to finish. I wish this was less malty.

Class act NEIPA brewed with one of my favorite hops: Mandarina Bavaria. Great look: honey colored, 4.5 F head, aromatic aroma- resinous, pine. First rate MF- smooth and thick. Accentuated taste of fruit and pine. Not too hoppy. Will buy again.

12 oz can into Plougshare wide-mouth glass.
No readable date. Assuming relatively fresh, just got dropped.

Very murky, dark yellow, tall creamy toothpast-y head of 2 fingers, lots of creamy lace and glops behind.

Very juicy aroma, full of juicy melon, pineapple, blood orange, tangerine, orange tic-tac, pine, and slight basil.

A little on the sweet side, a little funky, not quite hitting the markers I'd hoped for. Has a yeast funkiness, a sugar-straw sweetness, with citrus wedge, blood orange, clementine, grass, garlic, and cantaloupe, caramel, and lemon seed. Very funky, very odd.

Feel is creamy and smooth, julius-like, and has a nice soaking feel. Moderate to high carb, mild pleasant warming alcohol, dry finish with slight lingering resins.

Overall this is a decent enough beer but not enough to go back for a 6 pack. Not quite hitting the NE-IPA markers for me. I think I liked the original better, but that's not saying much either.

Pours a thin orange juice.with a one-finger, white head.
Huge smell of dank citrus. Lots of melon tones.
Bigger on the hop than the malt and juice. Good Dankness. Pine resin. More soft melon taste. Some pepper and garlic. Candies hop.
Great smooth mouthfeel.

Pours dark orange super dense. Can’t see through it. Looks like mango juice.
Nose is muted but I get some orange juice and mango.
Flavor is big mango but not really dynamic at all. It’s very drinkable for a double ipa but it’s not great.
Wouldn’t reach for this on the shelf again and again.

Canned on 10/29/19. 12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy and murky orangish golden; big fluffy light khaki head that falls slowly leaving great retention and nice lacing. The aromas have some floral and citrus notes. Lots of orange. Mild hints of caramel. Malts are there. The flavors follow the nose. Lots of citrus. Lots of orange leading the way. Some clementines and tangerines. Some peach and apricot. Solid bitterness, especially for the style. Malts do their thing. Finishes very juicy. Mild warmth in the finish, but it's not hot or boozy at all. Mouthfeel is nice. It's full-bodied with moderate to active carbonation. It's sharp, fluffy and smooth.

This is a nice "Double New England IPA". Nice aromas and flavors. It drinks somewhat big, but not too big. The craftsmanship is on point. Well done. There's something about this one that I really like.
