12 oz can, no bottling date but it just came out so should be very fresh. Poured into Speigelau IPA glass.
Golden amber body with perfect clarity, a nice fluffy pure white head, good retention and lacing. Smell is fruity with mango and pineapple at the forefront, some pine notes as well, citrus flavors and fresh squeezed orange. Taste is more pine than the nose is, the tropical fruit flavors are present similar to the smell, a good level of bitterness balances it out. The beer is crisp, smooth, medium bodied, and dry. Overall a delicious and balanced IPA. I haven't had much experience with El Dorado hops before, but based on what I just tasted I need to be trying more. Great stuff.

Hazy orange, plentiful foam, seafoam lacing in the glass. Lasting surface coverage.
Pungent hoppy aroma, leafy greens, citrusy orange and tangerine with a pleasant light undercurrent of pale malt sweetness.
Bitter orange peel, light pale malt sweetness, tangerine pulp. Dry aftertaste, lingering light bitterness and pale malt flavors. Very clean and sessionable. Go-to beer for sure.

Can shared by stillmatic2232. Thanks man!
Pours a hazy orange, with a 3/4 inch head, and a good amount of lacing.
Smells fairly citrusy, lots of orange, mango, and pineapple, with some pine in the background.
There's only a small amount of lingering bitterness here, the hop flavor runs much more towards sweeter juicier hop flavors, with some underlying dank/herbal/pine/grassy flavors as well. But the flavor profile definitely favors citrus. Very little malt flavor here, slightly crackery, I'd wager.
Light to medium bodied, very crisp clean mouthfeel to this IPA. Flavors are well defined, with a slight amount of lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation.
Another great IPA, this was a solid night for IPAs for sure.

A-Cloudy yellow orange, some carbonation and a one finger head that lingers.
S-Some nice cirtus and lemon notes, tad bit of wheat as well. Tropical hops.
T-Starts with nice citrus/tropical notes. Had a bit of wheat and malt to it as well, but the hops are still there. Ends with a nice bitterness and mild earthy notes.
M-lighter, semi crisp finish, not much carbonation.
O-First time knowingly drinking a beer with El Dorado hops, rather good.

Poured hazy orange/gold with small, quick-moving white head. My first experience that I know of with El Dorado as the featured hop. Smell is what I'd expect with lots of tropical and a little citrus in there. Taste followed suit, with a bit of the bite I like from straightforward American IPAs - nothing overly fruity, and very balanced with good malt presence and weight to it.
Very happy I picked up a six-pack - I've seen it on bar menus but never ordered it. At $10, I consider it a decent value and something that would be a regular purchase if readily available. Excited to try more from Spiteful.
