Hazy gold color. Fruity aromas and flavors of orange and papaya juices and tapioca with a velvety, vibrant, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, captivating, medium-long finish with notes of candied grapefruit peel, concentrated orange juice, and radicchio finish. A juicy but dry New England Style IPA with a balanced approach to bitter; a great summer pairing.

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.
