Another thanks to Drew for this fun guy.

Pours a huge frothy creamy thick 1.5 finger head that fades semi slowly, frothy lacing, super murky milk shake orange tan color,

nose is very fruity, stone fruit and some tree fruit, apricot, pear, candied orange marmalade and tree fruit pectin, a little tangerine, and a little dankness, creamy oats and malts.

Taste brings more of the same, lots of various fruits, generic fruit punch kinda, a little berry too, with pear, apple, apricot, a little citrus tangerine and candied orange peel, a bit of a grassy herbal hop note, turning to chewy hops later, some faint generic tropical hop notes, and fruit marmalade, with some creamy toasted oats. Finish is a bit sticky, fair bitterness throughout.

Mouth is med bod, decent carb, a bit creamy.

Overall not bad, a fair mix of interesting hop flavors but nothing really dominating, pretty tasty.

Haze has its limits, this just looks like a glass of shart. Smells like a fruit puree mango and softer mild fruits. Taste herbal, pine and a minty flavor, does not resemble the nose much.

Pounder can poured into a voodoo teku appears a cloudy pale yellow color with a white head.

This smells minty and a littke cheesy with hops, it gets progressively herbal as it warms with less fruity citrus hop focus than the partners in this canned run.

The taste is quite minty to herbal with pith and pulp and some chalkiness. Really good hop flavoring and quite similar flavor profile to the other 2 cans that were released in tandem with this one.

This is medium in body with modest carbonation. It boasts a creamy texture and overally is very similar to the others yet still delicious.

Pours a cloudy, hazy yellow with a white head that laces the glass. Aroma of tropical fruit, citrus, and a bit of pine.
Juicy hop flavor with some more grapefruit, orange and pineapple notes. Nice resinous note in the finish along with some bitterness.
Medium to full bodied, smooth, with a medium carbonation.
A solid IPA overall.

16oz pounder can just canned yesterday poured into a East End Brewing snifter:

Look: Pours an amazing very hazy darker yellow with roughly an inch of head. Lacing is present with good retention. Love the haze on this beer.

Smell: Notes of citrus, juiciness, grapefruit, and some pine. Amazing aroma on this beer!

Taste: Love the hop combo on this with the citra and galaxy. Nice juicy notes are present and the secondary hop citra comes through nicely. Taste pretty much follows the nose!

Feel: Medium bodied!

Overall: This is a 3 IPA series release and this is the first one I have tried out of the 3. All 3 IPAs were just canned yesterday and are super fresh. This is a very solid IPA and I hope the others are just as good. Get down to Voodoo and grab all 3 versions of this IPA series!
