Thanks to LGB362 for a couple of these cans: one went down during our last poker session, this one is for the review. 16 oz. lime green can.
Pour is a pleasant young orange IPA. Carbonated. Nose is mild orange, candied sugar. Smells more like pop - or soda, as you have it - than beer.
Hop, Drop 'n Roll gives off the same impression the second time around: too sweet. That candied orange sugar with corn syrup just won't stop: it runs the taste buds down & stickies them up. After the invert sugar blitz comes a modicum of conifer bitterness that tastes & feels secondary & doesn't meld real well; the hops give the dominant orange a bit of a medicinal taste, maybe a touch dank. Half the can is fine: my wife is enjoying the other half more than I am.
This one just doesn't finger my joy buzzer. Too much sweetness for an IPA, too gentle & loving. Decent enough.
