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.

Wow isn't that the most meanest & toughest beer can artwork that I have laid eyes on. It looks the part of an IPA. I was expecting more an east coast IPA that had a fair amount of malts to go along with bitter hoppiness that these beers tend to bring to the table. I am a little disappointed in this IPA guys. Well it does taste edgy & bold as what is expected with this type of beer can artwork. Cheers! B-

Aggressive but good. Citrus aroma, nice color and good Hoppiness. I still have a couple to enjoy.
