3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2016 12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 3/2/2016. Pours lightly hazy golden straw color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pineapple, apricot, citrus rind, pine, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/pine hops and light-moderate pale malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pineapple, apricot, citrus rind, pine, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon/orange peel, pine, cracker, bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/pine hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness as well. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, moderately sticky/resinous, and lightly grainy/creamy balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is a very good session IPA. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/pine hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

12oz can pours a clear gold with frothy, white head. Nose is just OK, some lemon, some pepper, yeast, biscuit, some odd soap. Flavor is OK, some lemon and soap, a little guava, some grist. Something is a bit off. Finishes watery too.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can@home, from Heinen’s, Cleveland, USA. Light aroma with sweet notes of citrus and some fruits. Light yellow color with small artificially white head and clear liquid. Medium, dry, hoppy taste of malts and fruits, some citrus and a hint of pine. Balanced with medium/narrow taste spectrum and medium hoppy aftertaste with malts and fruits. Light body with medium carbonation. Overall, for light percentage session product this has nice amount of taste. Still, you can not get away from the downsides.
