Finally got everything connected to crank my newly built 302.

Poured the fluids in. While adding Antifreeze to the radiator, I heard liquid hitting the ground.

Appears the leak is coming from the rear of the intake manifold on the passenger side.

I haven't cranked it due to the leak.

The intake is "new out of the box" and the person who put it together knew what they were doing.

What would cause this other than a poorly installed gasket?

Do I have an issue with the angle on the heads and the intake maybe? Can that happen?
