Wow this guy has lots of hops. Sweet nose - citrus mainly very fragrant I was drinking very fresh brought from the brewery two weeks ago. Taste is tropical - I think pineapple. Then the hops take over and blast you away. Appearance - quite chunky in bottom of my glass. Quite good. Thanks Wally!!!!

Can from the brewery into a pilsner glass showing cloudy whitish yellow with a finger of clean white foam. The nose shows mild grapefruit. The palate is light bodied and well carbonated. Flavors of light cannabis and moderately juicy pineapple with a light bitterness. Subtle pineapple in the aftertaste.

Alpha10 (615) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2016
2016/09/13 - Drank directly out of the can as instructed. Aroma is grapefruit, hints of mango, pale malt, onion, grass, pine and lightly dank notes. Taste follows nose; grapefruit and lots of pine, with a pale malt backbone and notes of onion, grass and dank, light spicy hops. Light sweetness and ample bitterness. Mouthfeel is full and chewy with moderately biting carbonation and long, highly drying finish. Really nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mep3222 (1271) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - SEP 11, 2016
Great big juicy mango tropical hop aroma. Flavor has the same tropical hops but with a strong piney resinous hop finish. Dry piney finish. Full flavored but much lighter body than heady. Very tasty beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bookman10 (947) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - SEP 10, 2016
Pours a cloudy, pale yellow, with minimal head. Aromas of citrus and tropical fruit, though rather muted. Flavor is marked by both citrus and tropical fruits, plus a nice bitter hop bite. Very nice IPA.

hopdog (11481) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2016
16oz can - and yes, we did pour it into a glass. Poured a hazy yellow color with a white head. Citrus, resiny, pine, and hoppy. Had this with Heady Topper & The Crusher - nice to have them all together.
