4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can into Tulip. Pours amber and clear with an off white head; tight and lively. Juicy aroma of passion fruit, grapefruit, watermellon gum and oranges. Round flavors of fruit (grapefruit, orange) at the start followed by a sharper pine and grass pinch on the back of the tongue. Very smooth and easy to drink. Excellent lacing and an overall gorgeous IPA.

12oz can. Clear amber color with a big off-white head. Crisp citrus hop aroma with a bit of malt. Bitter hop flavor with tons of citrus and malt calming on the back end. Cheers to another canned beer that really impresses.

Can. Pours hazy orange amber with a nice off-white head. Initial aroma is big, sweet, and fruity- grapefruit and pineapple- later more floral and grassy. Taste is full of pine, grass, grapefruit, and earth, and maybe some caramel if you look hard enough. Medium body, great bitter grassy finish.

Always happy to drink beer from a can, it just feels like all is right with the world. Especially when you consider its delicious. A nice hoppy little number citrus fruits abound. Some seet malty present as well, nice balance.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can, served in a shaker glass. Pours a lightly hazed light amber with a decent sized off-white head that lasts for most of the glass. Smells of citrus, nuts, caramel, and grass. Nicely balanced flavor with citrus, pine, and toffee. Sweet at first sip but transitions into bitterness. Has a full, coating mouthfeel. Finishes clean and bitter. Quite possibly the most balanced IPA I can recall having, especially from the West Coast. Tons of flavor and body for its relatively light 6.1% abv. Excellent.

Nice, light hoppy aroma...some notes of citrus and pine. Flavor is hoppy with pine, resin and herbal notes prevalent...nice sweet malt backbone to complement the hops. A very nice session IPA.
