Yes, this is another canned beer provided by the legend of canned beer, woodychandler. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of hops, a touch of citrus. Taste is hoppy, some bitterness, piney, just a touch of hops. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer, but there are better IPA's brewed by Cigar City.

Love this brewer
A - long standing islands of creamy foam and lace on top of a hazy apricot body.

S - Pertinent to the tropics: tropical fruit up front - mangos with pineapple, citrus, flowers, flower shop, and a bit of baked bread.

T - Follows smell but more pronounced floral hop, then completing more bitter than the aroma. The bitterness and finish is a bit soapy, sudsy. clammy.

M - Medium, bitter, slightly medicinal. lingering cloudy, sudsy finish mars it.

O - Nice profile, but not a great finish.

So are there actually 529+ hop varietals out there? Or is this like a Seal Team Six thing, where we're being duped into believing there are more than there really are?

Pours mildly clouded with an amber touched gold. Minimal head. Flavor carries tones of citrus with some pine; mostly the latter. Kind of a resin thing. Easy to drink, somewhat rustic, and pretty good. Not going to blow you away, but I like it.
