Hazy golden yellow color. Attractive aromas and flavors of muddled citrus peels and grilled bread with herb butter with a satiny, bright, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium body and an interesting, long finish with notes of honey roasted tropical fruits, radicchio and Swiss chard, hint of lemon pepper, and honeyed yams finish. A delicious, balanced, and effortlessly drinkable juicy IPA that will be a great introduction to the style.

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.
