Invasion is a really nice, smooth and drinkable beer. It is very hop forward, and finishes clean with a touch of malt. A very good beer to give to your friends who aren't big into craft beer, as the taste is just familiar enough to them that they won't be scared away.

Consumed early March, reviewed from notes.
12oz can into snifter. Date on bottom says 1/27/14. If this is a "canned on" date then I've gotten a bad can.

A: Pours a hazy dark grapefruit color with a large and greasy off-white head that slowly faded into a bubbly airy film that left a network of sticky lace down the glass.
S: Super malty and faded with dirty hops, caramel, and biscuit dough. Faint citrus, faint tropical fruit.
T: Follows the nose with old old flavors of what was once probably a good beer. Hops are all but faded and this tastes like a slightly bitter malt bomb.
M: Medium body, soft carbonation, greasy, slick and drinkable mouthfeel.
O: Everything I've found online points to the date being a canned on date and not a best before date. Howevr, this beer tastes like it's after a best before date. Thanks for sending the tick, Paul, but I think I got a bad can. There's no way drinking a beer that was canned just over a month ago should taste this bad.

12 oz can poured into a shaker pint.

Appearance
Yellow-straw with 1 finger of fluffy, white head that dissipates slowly. Slightly hazy with light carbonation.

Nose
Pineapple, candy sugar, papaya, mango, and passion fruit.

Taste
Pineapple and papaya sprinkled in pale candy sugar. Lighter notes of mango, passion fruit, green florals and perhaps a touch of blueberry. Very light bready malts with hints of potpourri.

Mouthfeel
Medium-light bodied, smooth, crisp, mellow, and refreshing.

Overall
Mellow and easy drinking. Flavorful and satisfying.
