tfontana (2561) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - APR 11, 2020
UPDATED: APR 11, 2020 Can (2/5/20, Thanks Mookie, Thanks David stamped on bottom) pour from the brewery in Charlton. Appearance is opaque, yellow-orange with lively sparkle at the edges of the glass, 3-finger width foamy white head with good retention and light leggy lacing. Aroma is strong lemony citrus, grass and peach. Taste follows aroma with strong lemony citrus with a citrus bite to it and honeydew melon, mild peach, yeast and late cracker. Mouthfeel is light-to-medium bodied with thin, frothy texture, average-to-lively carbonation and finish as taste with dry, lingering pleasant moderate bitterness. Overall, strong citrusy aroma and flavor with a few other features as well. It's hard not to compare everything to their NEIPA's so this doesn't rival those but is quite good for a pale ale.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2020 This is a lighter, sweeter version of the NE style. Sweet citrus in the aroma and a dusty vegetal taste in the finish. Easy on the palate. I would guess some citra for sure. Very nice. adrian910ss (2743) - Doylestown, PA, USA - JAN 4, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2020 Pint can. Pours a deep cloudy honey gold with a medium frosty white head. Aroma of mango, pineapple, orange and juicy hops. Taste is much the same as the aroma. Excellent. ajnepple (11262) - Lakewood, CO, Colorado, USA - SEP 5, 2019
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2019 Hazy yellow colored appearance with a fluffy white head. Aroma of zesty hops, citrus fruit, mild mango, light floral notes and light grains. Similar flavor, fresh and zesty with pleasant hop bitterness and mild tropical notes. Light to medium body with slightly sweet finish. Nice. superspak (9570) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - FEB 9, 2019
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2019 Got in a trade with brutalfarce. 16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 1/3/2019. Pours very hazy deep golden amber color with a 1 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tangerine, orange juice, red grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, red apple, mango, watermelon, guava, berries, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of huge tangerine, orange juice, red grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, red apple, mango, watermelon, guava, berries, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Light pine, citrus peel/zest, herbal, floral, woody, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, orange juice, red grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, red apple, mango, watermelon, guava, berries, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and no cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/grainy, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is fantastic. Slight lingering resins/rinds. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.6%. Overall this is a fantastic NEAPA. All around outstanding complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and refreshing to drink with the mildly bitter/drying finish. Amazing soft feel. Feels like Galaxy, Citra, Simcoe, El Dorado. Very juicy, vibrant, and lightly dank/earthy hops; with a great balanced wheat/oat/malt backbone. Mild residual sweetness with lingering resin dryness. A highly enjoyable offering, and amazing spot on style example as expected.
