Appearance: hazy medium gold with one finger of fine pale ivory head, good retention and moderate soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: tropical fruit, citrus, stone fruit, pale malt, vanilla. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate-lively carbonation, short slightly sticky finish. (3/5)

I dunno. This might’ve blown me away a year or two ago, but these days it feels like it’s one of many very similar beers. Maybe my love affair with NEIPAs is drawing to a close, or maybe I just need a break from the style for a bit, but this is just failing to impress me for some reason. (14/20)
