Fresh cans drunk over a few weeks after purchase at the brewery, most recently on 2/27/16.
Foamy white head steadily fades to a ring leaving lots of messy lacing. Heavily hazy copper-golden body despite sitting in a cold fridge for a month. Yep, itís a NE IPA.
Very galaxy heavy nose shows strong pineapple and pina colada notes, with some pungent grapefruit rind and maybe a hint of alcohol. Very citrusy and quite aggressive, though very aromatic.
Bitter right away with tons of white grapefruit and lighter tangerine notes. Definitely some light pine, but itís not heavily acidic, thankfully. Heavy cracker malts definitely add some graininess without sweetening the beer much, though thereís still a proper malty texture. Very carbonated, perhaps even too much so, with a very creamy/fluffy texture as a result. Heavy grapefruit rind bitterness lingering becomes more pronounced due to the carbonation and I donít think that works at all, as it has no malt sweetness to offset it and sits heavily on the finish.
The quality is there, of course, and there are no off-notes at all, but I donít think this particular recipe was very recipe. That being said, I donít like galaxy hops much and yet itís still perfectly competent and drinkable and on a higher level than most breweryís IPAs.

Big can in a taster. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of floral, lightly fruity, and citrusy hops, pale malts, and some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. A solid IPA. Wouldnít it be nice if this crappy brewery remembered how to make good beer all the time?
