Cloudy pale light gold color. Aromas of glazed lemon bar, papaya, pine sap, and crushed aspirin with a soft, spritzy, fruity medium body and a polished, interesting, medium-length orange pith, biscotti, toasted Hawaiian bread, and minty/eucalyptus finish. A New England IPA that delivers on the style with juicy fruit flavors and low bitterness.

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.
