Appearance: slightly hazy medium gold with one fat finger of fluffy white head, good retention and moderate soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: tropical fruit, caramel, cereal grains, light citrus.

Hey, I’m a fan of misheard lyrics, Spoonerisms, and malapropisms of all sorts, but I think this is more a case of a misheard malt bill, or maybe a misheard hop order. (Though that being said, the brewer notes say it’s hopped with Galaxy, Citra, and Mosac, so…?) In any case, it’s certainly not the NEIPA the label promises, with sweet tropical fruit and caramel dominating both the aroma and taste. (And not that it matters, but it’s barely hazy.) Just OK. (14/20)
This will be my 5,221st unique Untappd check-in.
