Like a memorable adventure along U.S. Route 101, “HI-5″ California Style IPA leads you down a road of pure adrenaline and beauty. Capturing the majestic flavor of citrusy hops that roll off your tongue like a white cap on an ocean wave, this scenic wonder will keep you in awe, sip after sip.

Where have you been all my life? I spotted this IPA one day at the grocery store thanks to the neat can design. Lucky me! Coming from a person who doesn’t like IPA’s this is the best IPA/Beer i have ever had in my life. Smells citrusy. Has a nice kick at the start then it is smooth going down the rest of the way. Has a nice taste that is piney and is dominated by an orange peal flavor. It has a slight bitter aftertaste, but i like it. I now drink one every day when I get home from work. Heck I could drink 5 of these a night, but that would be bad. Try it!

Was either not super fresh or just maltier than I like - I like the hops used but they were in the background. Solid beer that coulda been better.

Can. Pours golden with a giant head. Smells of heavy pine hops and some roasted malts. Flavor is pine, toast, light citrus bitterness, and some orange. Tasty.

12oz can with a small orange color with a small off-white head. Aroma was nice citrus notes with sweet malts. Flavor was citrus, floral hop notes. Light sweetness balanced by decent bitterness.

12oz can, thanks to aabean for sharing. Dated 12.1.15. Hazy golden orange color. Thin off-white head, bits of lace. Musty nose, some peppery citrusy hop. Bit of sweet bready malt. Medium body. Kind of slick texture. Lighter carbonation. Moderate sweet, light bitter. Not much to this, really. Bit stale-hoppy, kinda sweet.

12 oz. can, consumed on 10-12-15. Labeled “12.19.15,” presumably a best by date. Cloudy gold with a large amount of creamy, uneven, long-lasting, cream-colored to beige head. Produces good lacing. Strong, fresh, citric aroma features scents of pineapple and apricot. Pleasant, simple, fresh flavor. Pineapple, apricot, and lemon. Bubblegum and pretzel. Not strong in flavor but very nice. Lightly dry, dusty aftertaste. Soft and smooth in the palate. A touch undercarbonated. Very easy to drink. Tastes like the hops may be faded, but based on the time stamp, I doubt that’s the case. A pleasant but insubstantial and disappointing beer. Tastes more like an APA than an IPA, and a modern tropical one, not a classic California one, at that.
