Stunningly beautiful color of murky orange yellow crossover. Pours a delicious creamy head. The nose has a pretty high orange-orientation too. Absolutely splendid. I can wait no longer…
Oh my. Fresh it is! Great carbonation and distinct bitternotes of forest/sap from trees. What’s up with these fellas at this brewery?? Just nailing it, time after time. Amazing is all I can think of. Perfect degree of fruity touch to it, with those citrusy orange elements playing a great role in the picture. Hints of sweet pineapple subtly present. I freaking love this, and have no choice but to bow & join in on the hype train (whether I like it or not). Sooo good!
Supergreat outro as well. Fresh, mildly hopped bitterness lurking beneath, that lingers, fruity undernotes fading out slowly. Breaking my parameters-law here… It ranks at 3 of all their beers as for the ones that I’ve tasted from them, but I feel a Lille bad for rating it lower than top- because for an NEIPA to be, this is nothing but amazing.
(A salute goes out to Westum!)
