Description 

A higher gravity brew that is balanced by a weighty body and wheaty flavor. Late-edition Sabro hops shine bright with aromas of tangerine, coconut, tropical fruit, and stone fruit, with hints of cedar, mint, and cream. Like others in the Project X Series, and true-to-style, a lasting haze persists through to the bottom of the glass and presents opaque.

Flawless Imperfection by Mother Earth Brew Co. is a New England-style IPA, judged as BJCP Category 21B.

This beer's bright citrus and grapefruit aromas clearly signal the NEIPA style. As it warms, the fruity hop aromas dull, and a low ethanol character fills the void. It pours hazy and orange-yellow in color, with a solid head stand that lasts. This beer's citrus and grapefruit flavors resemble its aroma, but are markedly less prominent. It is mildly sweet with medium-high bitterness, and it finishes dry and crisp. The fluffy texture keeps this beer smooth. Overall, this example hits the hallmarks of the style and is nice to drink, but its qualities are muted compared to the best NEIPAs.
