Can courtesy of our friend Cory. Cheers! Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is grass, grapefruit zest, light malt, and some pine. Flavor is similar with grass, grapefruit zest, light malt, and mild pine. Nice IPA overall, mildly dry in the finish.

Day old can at Franks, straw golden murky pour with medium head and decent lace. Aromas and flavor are super dank and resinous with some pineapple, grapefruit, and tropical grass. Medium bodied with ample bitterness. Very nicely done.

egajdzis (5622) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 13, 2015
Hazy golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, citrus, pine, grass, and a bit of grapefruit. Taste of the same, finished floral, some bitterness.

bigda83 (513) - Jamestown, New York, USA - AUG 13, 2015
Can. Poured a bright hazy yellow orange with a big fluffy white head. Aroma of tons of citrus, floral, grassy, hay. Flavor was orange peel, lemon zest, grapefruit, grass, and mild floral. Light body and thinner texture and super crushable. Drinks way easier than 6.5. Lively carbonation and easy finish with slight bitterness. Awesome.

aleigator (491) - GERMANY - JUL 31, 2015
Pours a slightly hazed sun-yellow color, with a decent, froth head. Smells of skunky citrus peel, onion and biscuity malts, which add a gentle sweetness to the nose. As the beer warms up, a well pronounced dankness evolves from this balancing sweetness, together with ripe oranges blending right into wet grass. Has a very pleasant mouthfeel, due to a medium carbonation, revealing an incredible hop profile, ranging from flowery, to fruity to bitter. Showcases an awesome depth and versatility. Tastes of white bread malts, accompanied by a mineralic quality, inviting a bubbly carbonation to the palate. On top of that settle the hops, ranging between sweet exotic fruits, crisp, lemon dipped grass and flowery undertones, perfectly balanced by dough malts. Finishes utmost refreshing, due to the bubbly carbonation, together with dry lime, amped up by sunny, ripe oranges. Fantastic, flavorfull ipa, providing an absurd flavor depth, coming outstandingly well together, completed by a perfectly fitting carbonation, creating a powerful, dry and refreshing beer.

fresh can - nose and taste is a punch in the face of floral and piney hop notes. Not much malt. Pretty heavy for an APA.
