Poured from a 12oz can into glass. Bottom of can is stamped with info but not clearly readable, looks like a date in August of 2017 and the word 'ECLIPSE'.
Brewery notes, "Perfect Day IPA India Pale Ale | ABV: 6.5% | IBU: 60
Our clean, citrusy American-style IPA dry-hopped with large amounts of Citra and El Dorado. Silver and bronze medal winner from New York International Beer Competition."
Slightly hazy copper colored body, two finger white head settles to long lived cap. Minor lacing.
Aroma is sweet and full of citrus hops.
Taste is bright and sweet at the front, with more fruity and dank citrus at the back. Some floral aspects as well. Low bitterness.
Medium mouth feel, slightly sticky.
Drinks very smoothly. A sweeter version of an IPA, but not juicy enough to want to slam and savor.

A twelve ounce can dated 03/20/17 poured in a twelve ounce tulip glass.

Look- Pours a transparent dark orange/amber color leaving a thick finger of creamy white lingering foam. A little lacing is left behind as it settles.

Smell- Floral notes, orange zest and malt.

Taste- It begins with floral esters that open up to some pine, grapefruit, orange zest and malt.

Feel- Resiny and full bodied with a slightly bitter semi dry finish.

Overall- A very serviceable IPA that's reminiscent of the old school genre. The juice bombs of today have raised the bar and sadly these just don't excite the palate too much. In fairness this can that a friend bought on vacation is nearly two months old, so that could possibly have lowered my score a little. Still a very drinkable beer that's worth a try if you're in the distribution footprint.

Very nice! Everything in this IPA is well-balanced; the hops, malt, carbonation, all perfectly synced in an extremely refreshing beverage. A great choice to enjoy while tailgating, after doing yard work, or during game-night with friends.
