A beer I've hoped to try for a long time. Many thanks to iguenard for including it in my Canbif box!
Pours a very pale yellow colour that become hazy with sediment at the end of the can. Has an impressive large-bubbled white head with better retention than expected. Beautiful hop-forward aroma of juicy tropical fruits disappears quickly and I'm regretting not drinking this from the can, as it has totally disappeared from my glass?
Tons of flavour despite low ABV, a truly ideal Sunday afternoon beer. Although I can't distinguish the specific hop varietals I get mango, pink grapefruit & tangerine with a refreshing & lingering bitterness in the finish. Really nicely done.
Although I understand some of the controversy over the "session" style, this is certainly a beer I could enjoy over multiple pints.

Can from trade dated 2/18/14 poured 5/16/14. Thanks Stefan! Pours light yellow, totally clear with a big fluffy white head. Nice aroma of grass, citrus, vegetal hops, and light sweet malt backing. Surprised at the amount of hop aroma despite the 3 months in this one. Flavor is very floral, nice pine bitter bite, sweet citrus fruits, pineapple, and some malt sweetness in the backdrop. Really nice! Mouthfeel is surprisingly full with low to medium carbonation. Serious flavor for a session IPA. Recommended for sure.
