Railyard Brewing NEIPA American IPA at 7.5% ABV | 30 IBU (C$3.87 at Collective, 473 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 13-Feb-2019, reviewed 17-Feb-2019)

Appearance: slightly unclean hazy straw with two fingers of fluffy white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, spotty lacing. (3/5) Aroma: tropical fruit, citrus, pale malt, stone fruit. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, sweetish moderate bitter slightly astringent finish. (4/5)

Starts off smelling pretty much like SweeTarts, which is all the more impressive when you consider it’s done strictly with hops and no fruit additions of any sort. The aromas get a bit muddled as it warms, though, and are accompanied by a fairly unwelcome sweetness and astringency in the finish. All in all, it’s not bad, but it’s not something I’d go looking for again, either. (14/20)
