Cloudy old gold color. Aromas of dried mango, pineapple chutney, lemon balm, orange drink, and dried apricot with a silky, bright, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, relaxed clementine zest, water cracker, and basil finish. A solid NIPA with piles of citrus and tropical aromas.

New England Style IPAs, often abbreviated to NEIPA, are juicy, hazy American Style IPAs with intensely fruity, floral, hoppy flavors. They differ from other American Style IPAs in their unfiltered haze that can be attributed to dry-hopping, the use of high-protein grains, certain yeasts, among other brew choices. NEIPAs are currently enjoying huge popularity and drinkers are buying cans of the cloudy, juicy style in droves.
