Yay cans, thanks to AdamR46 (reddit), no date on the can.
Pours a nice creamy 1/2 finger head that fades at a med pace, fades somewhat slowly with a decent soapy lacing, crystal clear orange nectar colored with a light amber hue.
Nose brings nice hops, an nice fruity aroma, mild papaya and resinous musty passion fruit, mild citrusy clementine like, hint of grapefruit pith and little orange rind, as well as a mild fruity bubblegum, very small hint of grainy malt.
Taste starts with a big bitter hop bite, resinous and a bit musty with more mild passion fruit and grapefruit pith, little fruity bubblegum, little juicy guava and papaya like, mild fluffy malt and little sweetness that tries to balance the big bitterness and hint spicy hop. I even think I get a hint of pear and stone fruit, a little syrupy too. Finish dries and gets quite bitter but leaves a mild sticky feel, little syrupy sweet malt, more dank resinous hop and a little spicy hop bitterness.
Mouth is med bod, decent carb, little syrupy.
Overall not bad, there were some great points in the hops, but it seemed to go to too many different places all at once, too many different hop profiles, but still tasty, malts are a little too syrupy, but a nice balance. Enjoyable.
