$ 4.00 (Including tax)/16 oz can ($ 0.25/oz) from Franklin Beer, Franklin, PA. Reviewed 12/10/18.
Can stamped “SEP/12/2018” on bottom. In cooler at distributor. Stored upside down at 42 degrees and served at 42 degrees in a hand washed and dried Jester King snifter.
Appearance – 4.
Body – Yellow, opaque.
Head – Large (Maximum 6.5 cm, aggressive center pour), white, medium density froth, excellent retention, slooowly diminishing to a two to five mm ring and a heaped foam island. Head retraction leaves torn curtain lacing.
Lacing – As the level drops, the torn curtain lacing, begun in retraction, continues.
First pour – Light yellow, hazy.
Aroma – 4.5 – Very strong aroma of sweet mixed citrus. Weakens but lasts.
Flavor – 3.75 – Begins distinctly malty and slightly bitter. The promise of the citrus nose is unfulfilled, only coming through toward the end as the glass warms. A weak bitterness remains as an aftertaste. No alcohol (6.5%), no diacetyl, no dimethylsulfide.
Palate – 3.5 - Medium, almost creamy, soft carbonation.
Impression and interpretation – 4 – A pleasing NEIPA, or actually any variety of IPA, although the citrus from the nose is substantially weakened in the flavor. It is only slightly bitter, about the same as a lager.

Picked-up a four-pack of cans at Long Ridge Wine and Spirits in Plymouth for about fourteen dollars. Never seen or heard of this brewery before. Decent brew, nothing special. The bar is high in MA for IPAs.

A-Bright clear golden yellow with a white head that dissipates quickly
S-Dank and pine and sweet and floral aromas
M-Oddly full, but not in a pleasant way, more in the high carbonation bloating format...the juicy character is muted by over carbonation in my opinion
T-Sweet throughout with a very weak and mellow bitterness
O-Good beer, just not sure which direction they were going, try it, I enjoyed it

I've had this beer twice, both times from a 473 ml Canadian pint can. Recently, I had an undated can purchased in Ottawa, ON. It was OK -- juicy as the name implies, but not especially hoppy or bitter. It smelled very nice. Previously, I bought a can dated 22 November 2017 at Jungle Jim's in Cincinnati and thought it was terrific when I consumed it in mid-February 2018. My notes say "wonderful citrus bitterness." YMMV.

Not at all the juicy IPA I was hoping for, this one's vegetal and bitter. Hell, even their can is conflicted between the name of the beer and the description, which states this has "hoppy bitterness & fresh verdant resins with sticky malts"--my friends at Flying Monkeys, come on, these are NOT the flavor descriptors of anything "juicy."

I found the notes on the can so appropriate that I decided to type it all in and submit it to be posted here with this beer. I couldn't write anything that is more suitable for this beer than thise comments - so please read them if you would like to know the true nature of this beer.
This is how I like IPAs, this is the kind of IPA I like.

Very nice IPS with great citrus taste and aroma. Comes in a 16 oz. can so could not see the color. I had one and had to get another. Citrusy and hoppy. Not much better than that. Good Job Monkeys.

First had poured from 473-mL. (1 pint) can into clear plastic tumbler. Although as an American this Canadian “Juicy Ass IPA” seems more of a compromise between a dry English IPA and a juicy NEIPA, it is still quite enjoyable.

I thought Canadians were humble (or is it Brits?) Anyway, what the hell does Raul know? That being said, to call this one ‘Juicy Ass,’ is kind of arrogant like Elvis or Muhammad Ali or something... And rope-a-dope or Blue Hawaii this is not. Now, it’s not large and in charge like those said Americans, but it still ain’t bad. And by that, I just mean it’s average. No way is this thing juicy. Not even close. You take a sip, and you get it, but it doesn’t linger like Bieber on Selina Gomez. I’m glad I gave it a twirl, but unlike my time in Vancouver, I don’t think I’d come back.

*****well shucks, I fudged up. After a second or so, this thang opened up to me like Shakespeare during a Sunday Sonnet. I’ll be damned if it might actually be a bit juicy. Not a lot. Not like Fergie singing a Super Bowl. But it’s pretty good!

Fruity, bitter, an aftertaste, tons of head and a creamy feel.
Over-all, a good craft beer!
