Great beer. Despite being fooled into thinking the dude from Social Distortion brewed this, it had great carbonation and a very citrus forward taste. Well worth checking out and sampling.

Can: Poured a bright yellow color ale with a nice foamy head with good retention and some good amount of lacing. Aroma of citrus notes with light bitter notes is pleasant enough. Taste is dominated by citrus hops notes with some bitter notes discernable with some light grainy notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Well brewed but doesn’t really stands out from the pack of IPA out there.

Canned 7/16/2015 (possibly batch 41? Hess web site may not be up to date). Cloudy orange, head is off white with some orange tint. Tropical and citrus in the nose. Taste is all late addition hops, leaning again towards tropical and citrus. Carbonation is low, as it seems the bitterness. Fairly easy to drink despite being 7.5%, I know this is all about the hops but I would have liked more malt character.

Canned
Pours a lemon jellybean coloured body with nice with foamy head that sticks
Nice candied peel aroma
The flavour is lemon honey cream and and really nice bitter sweet finish
Mouthfeel is great easy drinking but in no way flimsy
