12 ounce can, I cant find any freshness dating.

Pours dull apricot, under an off white head, that stays nicely, and leaves respectable sheeting down low.

Fresh hop nose is quite enjoyable.

Fresh hop theme continues onto the palate. Hops impart some tropical fruity notes. Resin and pine hop notes continue into the quite dry finish. Nice IPA and in a can to boot.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Poured from can into perfect pint glass.

Almost no head at all, literally, Sea Hag pours a super hazy pale orange. I like the look, it's unique.

Smell is light and crisp, nothing special, but good. Light citrus and pine, emphasis on light.

Taste is light and crispy, similar to the smell, but a bit better.

Mouthfeel is best part, smooth and refreshing, very much enjoy this feel.

Overall this is a very decent American IPA. Would like to try it again.

I got a 6 pack in a trade. Thanks, Stephen!

It pours a hazy orange(could be chill haze) with a 2 finger head of foam, some nice lacing left behind.

A very nice citrus aroma, grapefruits and tropical fruits, bitter but not overly so because of a nice amount of malt.

Grapefruit and pine in the taste with less malt than I noticed in the smell. Well, I pulled it straight from the fridge, which I don't do often. Pause. More of the malt shows up as the beer warms up but it's still a hop forward and delightful to drink IPA. The abv is very manageable.

Medium body, same for the carbonation, it's a good mouthfeel. Heck, if I had this around town, it would share duties with SR Pako's. I like!
