Twa Dogs Beer The Hazy Mist New England IPA American IPA at 5.5% ABV (C$4.05 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 12-Mar-2019, acquired 16-Jul-2019, reviewed 21-Jul-2019)

Appearance: hazy medium gold with two fingers of rocky white head, excellent retention and heavy soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: bready caramel, herbal/floral, citrus. (5/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (6/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, medium bitter lightly spicy finish. (3/5)

Disappointing. The flavour profile is nothing like that described on the label, and nothing like one would expect for an NEIPA. The dominant aroma is bready caramel, with the hop component being predominantly floral and herbal before some citrus finally, weakly, makes itself known. It’s not unpleasant, but it’s so completely unlike what it’s alleging for a style, that I can’t really give it any better score. (12/20)
