UPDATED: SEP 30, 2014 Can. Hazy gold with a fluffy white head that laces well. Aroma of grapefruit and other zesty citrus, hay, mango. Light bodied, fairly high carbonation. Citrus and tropical fruit - maybe some rambutans and makrut lime. Moderate bitterness. Good. [3.7]
Can. Pale gold, just a little hazy with lasting white head that leaves rings and chunks of lace. Lots of lime, moderate tropical fruit, plain supporting hayish pale malt. Itís still pretty vibrant after its journey here. Just does the job.

Can at Tacos Perla in SD. Light hoppy but lots of flavor. Bitter finish. Citrus hops. One of the best session IPAs I've had - doesn't taste sort of empty like many do. Would definitely have again.

16 oz can. Misty yellow with a bumpy white head. Nose is catty with tangerine and dough. Crisp yet substantial with a lingering tingle and some resin. Taste is orange peel, pink grapefruit, grass and mango. A perfect example of the style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 FL. oz. silver can, supplied by GT2 (as an extra) - many thanks! To over-sized snifter, it pours a skin-tinted citron, with which a snowy white head 1Ĺ fingers in length stood. Aromas of citrus hops, algae, cashews, flax seeds, salted butter, sweat, sweet basil, and wool. Tastes the same with the addition of palm oil, pomelo, bitter orange, and pencil shavings. Iíve absolutely had better Session IPAs, but on such an unusually hot day this was fucking delicious.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Offering shared at RateBeer Grand Tasting 2014 (St. Louis, MO). Pours a pale straw hue, yellowish glow with frothy whitish head. Nice frothy layer laces well. Aromas are firmly hoppy, nicely bitter with firm grapefruit, lemon and florals. A bit bready, fresh with some decent hoppy elements. Initial is a decent bitterness, touches of aspirin, citric grapefruit, some florals and gentle bready malt, a bit grainy. Firmer hoppy elements show some life. Nice bitterness, a bit bready with some florals, a touch of earth, suntan lotion. Lighter overall, the beer is pretty crushable but the beer itself doesnít necessarily jive with me. Some soap, tuches of lemon as we finish. Ok. Pretty crushable. Bitter and fresh albeit not my favorite hop profile.
