3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma hit me as soon as I cracked the can open. Smelled like a sack of that medical marijuana that the kids are smoking these days. Tastes great. 8% you say? Yikes. Goes down like a 6%er. Fruity, hoppy. A little tiny bit over sweet, but nothing to complain about. Would be much better if it weren’t $11.99 for a 4 pack of tall boys, but that doesn’t play into my rating. That’s just me being a cheapskate, which I’m really not. So, down the hatch! Football’s on!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Pours a medium, gradually collapsing, off white head, over a slightly hazy yellow (SRM 3) body.......nose is pine, resin, grapefruit peel, mildly dank, light malts, balance to the hops.......taste is mild malts, pine, resin grapefruit peel, light tropical fruits, mild melon, slightly dank, balance to the hps.......mouth feel, light of medium body, mild alcohol, high carbonation. This is a very typical rendition of the newer style IPA and I/DIPA with minimal malts, to allow the newer style of hops to dominate in both aroma and flavor. Rating above to appreciation, below to style. BJCP 8/4/14/4/7

1 pint can - pours a clear light yellow with a med off white head. Nice aroma with notes of citrus zests, grass and some pine as well. A mouthful reveals a layered hop bouquet and a minimal malt content. Not bad

grassy, lemon zest, dried pineapple, candied orange, sweet biscuit, pine. moderate bitterness on the finish offset by a sturdy, simple doughy sweetness.

Too heavy on taste of alcohol. Over bitter and not sophisticated. After taste not great.

Although this is a wonderful colour of piss, piss it is not - an excellent fruit-salad-y APA with a tinge of herbaceousness - malt in the back seat but well balanced - alcohol invisible - super easy to smash - malt gives a lot of sweetness which is the only detractor for me as I prefer more bitterness than sweetness. A damn fine drink.
