I could give a preamble here about what a NEIPA is, how they came into being, and how to pronounce it (nay-pah?) or I could get straight to it like Sauce did when they named theirs New England IPA.
With a colour similar to grapefruit rind, New England IPA pours opaque and pungent with resinous pineapple and bitter lime notes. NEIPA falls over your tongue like James Stewart in the poster for Vertigo: delicately, slowly and to a dreamy soft landing. The aromas are present in each juicy sip that starts soft and sweet and ends with a bitterness akin to chewing fresh orange peel. Just like in the brewing process, hops are dropping in the whole time: grassy, grizzly and with a fuzzy little warming sensation that may be partially due to the 6.5 percent ABV.
