Cabin Brewing Company Dawn Chorus – American IPA at 7% ABV | 50 IBU (C$4.68 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 30-Dec-2019, acquired 9-Jan-2020, reviewed 11-Jan-2020)

Appearance: opaque pale gold with two fingers of rocky white head, excellent retention and heavy droopy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: bright tropical fruit, citrus, pale malt, pine. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-low bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, medium duration finish. (4/5)

Nice example of the hazy NEIPA style, exhibiting clear tropical notes from the NZ hops (Taiheke, Motueka, Moutere and Nelson Sauvin). No hint of the relatively beefy ABV, easy drinking and pleasant. I suspect it might’ve been even brighter when fresher, and I’d like just a hair less sweetness, but still pretty damn good stuff here right now. (16/20)
