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

Bright golden color with a huge fluffy head with great retention and leaving some laces.
Nice tropical aroma with notes of passion fruit, pineapple, orange-lemon, flowers and a distant mango.
Citrusy flavor with notes of pine, lemon, grapefruit, resin, tea bags, lemongrass, a bit of dry onion and flowers. Dry and bitter aftertaste. It feels lower than its 70 IBUs.
Rather light body with appropriate carbonation.
Crisp and well attenuated American IPA with citrusy-pine notes. Extremely refreshing in this hot summer day.

Pours a golden amber color with a small white head that goes away quickly. Has a more of a honey grainy smell than it does hops (this was a fresh can). Has a overpowering honey taste with some hops.

This one has great color when viewed with fire or a well lit area. Real pleasant nose with citrus in the forefront. Taste is solid citrus with a light, not overbearing malt follow. If I could get this local for 9.99 a six I'd scoop it up.

Date code I can't figure out.

L - Deep amber, clear, thin white head, minimal lacing.

S - Citrus and pineapple with a sweet/floral backbone.

T - Lemon, floral, slightly piney on the finish.

M - Light, slightly dry finish.

O - Decent flavor, easy to drink, nice low ABV. I could drink a lot of these in the summer.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours a clear gold with 2 fingers of slightly white, frothy, shortlived head that leaves a thin coating of patchy lace. Aroma is light citrus & floral with a slight tropical hint backed by a thin sweet malt. Taste is herbal & citrus hops backed by a thin caramel sweetness. Finishes with a resinous pine & grapefruit pith hop bite with pepper & a bitterness that like Green Man IPA intensifies & lingers long in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is light bodied with moderate carbonation, crisp & prickly.

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

Poured from a can into a Wicked Weed IPA glass. Clear and dark gold in color with 3 fingers of well-retained foam. Bright citrusy nose. Lemon, grapefruit, fresh linen, and a little toast.

Medium-light body with a rather thin feel and a mild hoppy flavor. Follows the nose well, but the flavors aren't as punchy as one would expect. Toast and marmalade up front and lemon character throughout, but a little grassy as well. Not one I would buy again, but still pleasant and refreshing on a hot summer day.
