A big shout out to woodychandler for this wonderful beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a rich golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is bursting with citrus and hops. Taste is bitter, hoppy, grapefruit, dry at the finish, full of flavor. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall is an exceptional beer worth seeking out.

It's Easter Sunday and I am trying to reduce some of the backlog of CANQuest (TM) CANs that built up while awaiting picture approval, name correction, time, money, the bevy of bikini-clad beauties to depart the premises, the Russians to get the f**k out of the Crimean Peninsula ... Suffice it to say that things were getting away from me and I am CANmitted to getting back on an even keel.

From the CAN: "Drink fresh! Do not age! Pour gently into a glass."; "A tropical IPA dry-hopped on the high seas with one of our favorite hops: Citra"; "Caribbean-style ale".

A nice, loud Crack! presented a brimful craft CAN, but these guys must have been talking to my Old Lady, who was scandalized by the inverted Glug. It's beer, kids! It ain't gonna bruise, but I promised that I would use a gentle pour when so directed. On this one, I was a tad more forceful, resulting in two dense, rocky fingers of ecru head with good retention. Color was an oh-so-slightly hazy orangish-yellow (SRM = > 5, < 7). The nose was filled with ripe tropical fruit - mango, papaya, tangerine, pineapple, light banana, even coconut. This was like a perfect counterbalance to the intensity that I experienced with Ahtanum. Citra came across more user-friendly, at least on the nose. Mouthfeel was medium, almost thin, but the utter fruitiness on the tongue more than made up for it. Fruity?!? It was like someone had taken Carmen Miranda's hat and thrown it into the boil. Fruit salad. Deelish! The lacing that began to form was going to need a jackhammer to remove. Finish was semi-dry, rendering it eminently drinkable. If the name is Maori for "Stone", then this killed it! Stonekiller beer.
