Schwarzbart (260) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 6, 2017
Pours a finger high, white, bubbly head. It’s a hazy yellow gold. Wide lace bands. Nose of citrus, pale malts, leafy hops, and some grapefruit. Just less than a medium body with ample carbonation. Taste is similar to nose, but also light alcohol heat, floral, perfume and dried corn. Not really getting the oats and lactose. Drinks well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Pours a hazed glowing straw gold with a medium sized white head. A touch of soft citrus, a bit of melon and a hint of spicy fruit. Medium bodied, soft and smooth, gentle with a hint of dulled lemon. Slow citrus into the finish, a touch of bitterness. Very easy drinking.

ACHops (1665) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 23, 2017
16 oz can, into a tulip glass. Pours hazy thin orange with a medium lacy white head. Aroma is light citrus notes - tangerine and a bit of mango, sugary sweet note present on the finish. Taste is similar - less citrus and more of the lactose though less than you’d expect given the prominence they claim for it. Dry and almost clean on the finish, that lactose note lingers. Not bad, but not a standout for the style. Could use more body given the abv here.

16 oz can poured into a tulip. Hazy orange with off-white head. Aromas of citrus, floral, malt, hay, herb. Tastes of citrus, floral notes, a little malt, light tropical fruit, a bit of hay. Medium body with a dry finish. Nice.

3.5
malrubius (3044) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - NOV 6, 2017
Can from Table and Vine. Cloudy yellow orange with fizzy heads that burns off, just like all the hip MA-IPAs. Mango orange grapefruit doughy aroma. Medium light tropical fruit sweetness with medium-heavy grapefruit bitterness that doesn't linger long, thank goodness. Medium light body still retains some internal carbo after fizz off. Really just tastes like not particularly pleasant fizzy grapefruit juice. Anyhow, I hope this fad ends soon; however, Rock Art's 20th Anniversary IPA is an excellent, delicious version of the style.

rumproasts (6052) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 3, 2017
can. Hazy pale golden with one finger head. Very tropical and fruity. Definitely in the category of juicy. Lactose adds a very creamy smoothness, but there is a solid bitterness in the finish, moreso than most NEIPAs. Excellent flavors.

ozzy70 (1283) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - OCT 29, 2017
Sample from can at Hy-Vee Oktoberfest. Poured hazy/cloudy golden with a white head. Aroma was grapefruits, hops, pine. Taste was medium bitter, hops, grass, herbal, lemon.

3.4
DiarmaidBHK (5948) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2017
Can from unknown place. Pours hazy with a white head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Lots of grapefruit and fruit juice. Finished clean with some solid bitterness. Not bad.

3.1
weordie (1429) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2017
Pours golden with a fluffy head. Aroma is a bit dull, some nice melon though. Not a great deal of flavour either, nothing I can quite put my finger on, but a decent bitterness. Too over carbed which takes away the normally smoothness you get from lactose.
