Citrusy hops. Easy to drink and tasty. Im not a big fan of the residue. I dont believe its bottle conditioned considering its in a can. Tastes a little like a homebrew, but I will buy a single here and there.

12ooz can 1/17/15 (Purchased in MEM)-Pours a slightly hazy golden with a small head. Aroma of hops and malt. Taste of the same. This light to medium bodied brew is not too shabby.

CHATEAUBEER (3) - - JAN 4, 2015 does not count
Bought a 12oz can from whole foods. Pale slightly cloudy in appearance with a lacey white head. The aroma is nice and fruity lots of tangerines and sweet grapefruit. The beer is full of hop flavor but not too bitter. Very nice malt presence with a hint of wheat. Very well balanced with a not too dry not to sweet velvety bitter finish. I am not a big ipa fan but, I can see myself drinking a lot of these.

pepsican (1454) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Clear light gold ale pour. Like real light which is chill. Paired with some central bbq. On tape. Floral hop aroma with some candy malts and a big hit of grapefruit zest. Bitter, mildly sweet, tight carbonation. Could be the good food and the new year, but this beer petes tame even though it is not my style of Ipa.

fidelis83 (2045) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Twelve ounce can thanks to my awesome sister. Hazy gold pour with a four finger, creamy off white head that has excellent retention. Aroma is bright citrus, fruity floral and light tropical fruit hops up front, biscuit, candied fruit, sweet malt, toast, light biscuit and light minerality. Flavor is toast, caramel, juicy citrus, berry, light mixed tropical fruit, a little pine, biscuit, a little grass and some lingering toastiness as well as a nice, lingering hoppiness in the finish. Medium body, dryish feel throughoutand medium carbonation. Really tasty, nice hop blend.

nimbleprop (5290) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 25, 2014
64oz growler a friend brought our from Memphis. Pours a clear gold with some spitty, white head. Nose is exactly what youd expect, mild malt, mild honey, lemon, orange, some pine. Flavor follows right along, lightly sweet, lightly bitter, lemon, straw, honey, mild pine. Finishes lightly oily but dry. Exactly what you expect.

Westmeister (1865) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Can provided by my pop who got it from his buddy whos son owns the brewery. Can promised to be straight from the line - certainly tastes fresh. Pours hazed golden, unflitered, soapy white head. Smell is fresh citrus and hints of tropical fruits and some sweet malts in the background. Taste is lemon zest, citrus, light, some mango, low maltiness. Almost comes across as a session ipa, but the ABV is a bit higher. Not that the ABV is noticeable. Crushable.
