It is absolutely horrendous. Looks like a west coast IPA and just tastes like alcohol. Hardly any discernible hops, and none of the qualities associated with the style. Almost a weird Belgian tripel taste. What a mess.
Completely agree regarding labelling it a New England IPA. Not sure what in the hell they were thinking. Not a worthy beer. Bought one and drank it while drunk so tried another. Will not buy again.
In related news, picked up a couple of the new Sidelaunch Gateway IPA, also branded on the can as a New England style.
This one actually fits the profile in terms of flavour and is quite nice overall. Appearance on the other hand once again doesn't make sense for a NEIPA. It looks like a Creemore in the glass. Odd copper colour. At least they got half of it right?
