L: Pours a mildly hazy, straw-gold, with some particulate floating throughout. Not much of a head on the pour.
S: I'm a bit stuffy today, so my smells are a bit muted. Smells a little sweaty with juicy citrus.
T: Not extremely bitter on the attack, more of a lingering bitterness. It maintains a very fruity citrus taste throughout.
F: Rolls over the tongue and down the hatch without any problem. Definitely one of the most smashable IPA's I've had.
O: Fun fact about this beer; This was the very first IPA I ever tried. It was my junior year of college, all I had for beer up to this point was PBR, Bud, Busch, Coors, and Nordeast. I was at a party, and my friend Danny handed me a sample of this stuff. This beer changed my world forever; popped my craft beer cherry, and to this day remains one of my favorites of all time.
S/o to Danny for popping my beer cheery.
Cheers,
-B

Citra forward (pineapple, grapefruit, tangerine etc), mild bitter finish, it is good but doesn’t really stand out from the crowd though that said it is still quietly very good

The stamp is a bit smudged, but it looks like the bottom of the can: says: "CANNED ON 08/02/18 F4392 09:30"

Appearance: The body is a hazy gold under a thick white cap. It has very good retention. There are small particles suspended in the beer.

Aroma: The beer has a pleasantly soft aroma of tangerine and wildflowers.

Taste: The beer has a very nice mango flavor up front. There is a touch of grapefruit flavor and just a hint of grain in the background. It is a very pleasant tasting beer with a bright character.

Mouthfeel: The beer is light bodied and easy to drink with a semi-dry finish. It has low bitterness which is akin to drinking grapefruit juice.

Overall: The beer has a very bright character to it which is comprised of its fruity and citrusy flavors. What I found interesting is that after writing this review I read the back of the can and it said this was a "...BRIGHT IPA..." which was dead-on with how I perceived this beer. It has a very fresh and vibrant tone to it. This would be the perfect picnic or beach beer, especially because it is in a can. It has certainly made my list for these occasions. I would highly recommend it and I will buy it again.
