12oz can picked up at Brewforia Meridan for $2... Pours with a nice 2 finger white head that supplies great sheets of lacing.. the beer is slightly hazed orange.
Nose leans toward the tropical fruity hops with some tangerine and grapefruit.... a fair amount of residual maltiness seems out of lace and carries too much caramel malt.
The caramel malts now carry something that I automatically associate with diacetyle... a bit butter/slick for sure... good bitterness and flavor hops help this brew out, but I cannot get past the malty messiness.
Body is light with a light/medium carbonation... still pretty drinkable despite my above negatives.... just needs some work.
Can. Pours clear golden with small white head. Aroma: tropical fruitys, fresh hay, mango, forest. peaches. Taste: up to medium bitterness, nicely balanced, some maltyness, oak corn, resin. Medium body. Bitter finish. Nice. davidezdonz (571) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - AUG 28, 2017
A 12 fl oz can with a packaged on date of June 2017. Poured into a Holy Mountain tulip glass. It was a clear dark-ish golden orange colour with a one finger white head that had decent retention and left nice lacing. Aromas were citrusy grapefruit and orange followed by hints of caramel, grass and pine. Tastes grassy, grapefruit and orange with hints of honey, caramel and floral. Crisp, light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall it was very nice and easy to drink. I feel this could be my everyday IPA if I could find it easily.

Pours a nice amber from a can, some lacing. Big fruity aroma, similar flavor although a little thin. Pretty good beer. ABUSEDGOAT (2824) - California, USA - JUL 8, 2017
Hazy amber with a white head that lasts. Aroma is grapefruit, citrus, peach, caramel, light resin, lightly floral. Medium bodied, moderate to high bitterness, a good take on a PNW IPA.

Big fan of this one. A great example of a Pacific Northwest IPA. Mouthfeel is what you’d expect from a PNW IPA, crisp, hop forward and lingering with nice tropical notes. Overall I’m a big fan of top cutter and it’s always part of the rotation. Ratman197 (15216) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAY 27, 2017

Flavors of bread, grapefruit and light lemon zest with a crisp dry bitter lingering grapefruit finish. ibrubeer (403) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAY 16, 2017
Draft @ RL, GEG. Aroma is citrus, a little grassy. Golden amber color, clear, with white head that fades, pretty good lacing. Flavor is citrus, grass, little pine, smooth. Med body. Good blend of west coast & modern IPA. phaleslu (10553) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2017
12 oz. can from poisoneddwarf - thanks again! Pours a clear gold with two fingers of frothy white head that takes a long time to settle, leaving sloppy lace all the way, and never really settling completely. Uneven frothy, rocky head atop the liquid. Notes of grass, straw, pale and bready malts, light and bright florals, tea, soap, and citrus zest. Light-bodied, with a smooth, clean, lightly bitter mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Really easy drinker but doesn’t pop to the same degree as other fresh NW IPAs.

This IPA has been in my fridge a lot lately, so I guess it’s kind of like my go-to / daily drinker. It’s a bold IPA, but it’s easy to quaff. Grassy, green, zingy, and leafy, it offers lots of fresh hop flavors and a snappy -- but not harsh -- bitterness.
