Another single can that has been sitting in the fridge for a while now.
As pictured...what is 'Caribbean-Style' I ask myself.
The beer poured slightly hazy, dark yellow orangish color, lots of carbonation bubble streams.
Big, white head with good retention and lots of lace string.
Lots of hoppy aroma, citrus and grapefruit.
Taste has a ton of grapefruit flavored hops, lots of floral and fruity bitterness.
I would say medium body, carbonation crispness on the tongue, bitter aftertaste.
A nicely done dry hopped beer, and in a can!

Pours a golden color with lots of yeasty particles floating about. The head is short and dense and settles into a light cap. Some soapy lacing. Not sure why there is yeasty floaters in an IPA.

The aroma is of a lightly bready malt with a hint of caramel. Light honey sweetness. The hops are herbal with notes of citrus and pine. Some metallic notes.

The taste is of a metallic bready malt, quite English like. There is a general fruitiness to the malt as well. The hops are steely, peppery and grassy; perhaps faded. I want to say some unripe apricot. A bready, bitter IPA/APA.

The feel is moderate with softish carbonation. Slightly sweet on the palate but finishes with a dry, astringent bitterness. Quite asprin like.

An meh IPA. Too dry for my liking. Hops are blah.
