Hazy and light gold in color, with bright aromas of green mango, wheat grass, and peach pastry. On the palate, orange-kissed green tea, radish, and key lime peel flavors smooth into a brisk and bold finish. An easy-drinking, hoppy, NEIPA.

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.
