Lots of fruit on the nose as lemon, peach, pineapple, and grapefruit are all represented. On the tongue, this is a bit more hop-forward than many NEIPAs, but the bitterness is pithy and still somewhat restrained over standard IPAs and DIPAs. Even with the increased hop bite, warmth allows the softness of the style to come through, with melon and light orange coming forward. Really nice beer.
