A big thanks to @rjmusquiz for sending me a few of these as extras! Pours a very light gold with foamy head and heavy lacing. The aroma features citrus hop notes paired with a firm graham cracker crust malt profile. Notes of pine, lemon, cracker, and grass all come through. The flavor is super light and full of hop flavor. Notes of lemon, grass, and pine come up front and quickly give way to big time malt backbone. Mouthfeel is super light and refreshing. Overall, another solid IPA from the west coast.

Purchased in a six-pack of tallboys. I should mention I purchased this beer 5 days (!!!) after the canning date. Not obscenely expensive when you factor in the amount of beer you get for your money.

A: I'll admit, it's not the best looking beer ever. Pours a clear, golden yellow with a fair amount of white head that sticks around for a bit.

S: This beer shines here. Caramel sweetness, citrus, tropical fruit, melon. This is an awesome beer to smell, even straight out of the can (I've had it both ways)

T: Starts with that spicy, tropical bitterness that fades in to a smooth mellow malt sweetness. Solid west coast IPA with a nice malt bill to back it up.

M: Long, bitter finish. Good carbonation for the style, cleans up the sweet and finishes dry.

O: I feel like this beer is underrated. I found the last six pack in the store, and to be honest I never cared for Pizza Port/Port Brewing/Lost Abbey. At this price I can afford to drink this one, it's tasty, and it may just be my new go-to six pack. Cheers.
