My local, frequent in-person trader, tone77, recently dropped this off for me in his latest batch of beer in support of The CANQuest ™. I am always anxious to see what he has for me when he stops by!

From the CAN: “They say that life isn’t easy. They also say that you should always put on pants before you go out in public, the best meals aren’t made in the microwave, couches aren’t made to have cup holders, and condiments come in vessels other than squeezy tubes. Clearly, they aren’t always right.”; “Drink Local Beer”; “’Good People Drink Good Beer.’ – Hunter S. Thompson”; “Session India Pale Ale”.

The Crack! was easy except for the spray of beer across my fingertips. There was some foam coming through the opening, but I am not one to take the easy way out, so I began an inverted Glug. It was easy to watch the pseudo-cascade quickly begin to form three fingers of foamy, eggshell-white head that fell pretty easily. It was easy to see that the color was Yellow-Gold (SRM = 4 -5 ) with NE-quality clarity. It was also easy enough to give Midas, Mammon and Croesus a sip when they showed up. Nose had some nice, citrusy aromatics which were easy to perceive. Mouthfeel was medium. The taste was definitely hoppy, easily grapefruit rind and with less of the overt bitterness that I got in the previous Ray Ray’s PA. Finish was dry, slightly bitter, but very easy to drink. Nice lacing was beginning to line the glass. I sat back to CANtemplate this one and easily came to the CANclusion that it would not be sustainable for me. I understand the whole notion of sessionable beers, but AIPAs deserve better, IMHO. Just sayin’.

With this one I don't feel anything too exceptional. It still is a good beer though. I get floral, grassy and citrus notes with a strong pine flavor that seems to be the strongest aspect of the beer. I almost feel like everything is a little watered down for my tastes. There aren't really any parts of this beer that stand out to me. Even though its simple and uneventful in my opinion, its definitely not a bad session IPA.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a deep golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of piney hops, a bit of citrus. Taste is hoppy, bitter, some citrus, a bit of pine, good flavor for the abv. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a good, sessionable beer.
