16 oz can purchased for $1.89 and best by 4/30/20.
Ploughshare glass.

Has a hazy slightly juicy appearance but not creamy or thick; with a frothy head of 1.5 fingers and leaves hilly lace behind connected to the body.

Aroma of cereal grains, pineapple, starfruit, and a little mango. Most of this aside from the cereal grain is achieved by sniffing deeply straight from the can. All of the aroma is lost in the glass.

Flavor is much the same, with boring cereal grain, slight grapefruit and tangerine, and hints of mango. Very very slight banana.

Feel is juicy and slightly acidic, not creamy, with very mild heat and a parching resiny acidic finish.

Overall an underwhelming IPA that I could easily finish with superior drinkability, but honestly pales in comparison to even their flagship IPA.

Tasted in a snifter from draft at Consume on February 21, 2020. The IPA Now series was created to showcase a different blend of hops each time. This version is a hazy IPA dry hopped with Galaxy, Mapuche and Mandarina Bavaria for flavors of pineapple, banana and citrus with apricot and floral aromas. Light malt body, juicy and a touch of bitterness.
