The can looked funny, it's an IPA, I'm on vacation, so I bought it. Luckily it was on the singles shelf, sadly, I bought 2.
Poured into a pint glass - my first east-coast-can't-get-it-in-Chicago vacation beer. Not a good start.
Clear, golden, thin crisp head gone in an instant. I smell a strong scent of the ocean (oh, wait, I'm on the ocean, this beer doesn't really smell like anything).
The sip is carbonation first, forcing everything else into the tatstebuds. The flavors are a little sour (but like day-old-frat-house rather than Belgium) and unpleasant. A little hop spice, but mostly only after you go looking for it. An unpleasant chemical aftertaste is gone in a flash. All in all what little flavor there is here is not great (or good) but thankfully fades fast.
Did I mention the funny looking can? I liked the fish on the can. I should not have left the other can for my wife and fellow hophead to stumble over, but she unlike me, drainpoured it.
A beer to reach for when you have a small kitchen fire to extinguish. Or if you like funny cartoon fish.

12 oz can, no date
pours a clear golden color, with bone-white head. very good head retention and a bit of lacing. not much hop aroma for an IPA. not much in the taste either. a bit of malt flavor, and a bit of earthy hop flavor. thin body, medium carbonation.
either this can is pretty old, or it didn't start off great.

Undated can at 35 degrees into imperial pint glass
Aroma of apples
Head large (6 cm), off white, creamy, very slowly diminishing to a 3 mm layer.
Lacing good, many islands and reefs of small to medium bubbles
Body medium orange, hazy
Flavor begins with both bitter and sour overtones; not really sure what I’m tasting. There is no distinct fruit, pine, or flower taste; no alcohol, no diacetyl, no malt. This definitely leaves an unpleasant aftertaste with a very long hang time.
Palate medium, watery, soft carbonation.
This has a very pleasing appearance, aroma, and palate. However, the flavor is pretty bad, making me long for a lot of diacetyl or skunkiness. Definitely a Jekyll and Hyde experience.
