16 ounce can poured into a tulip glass

‘Freshest by 10/18/18’ is stamped on the bottom of the can, not my favorite date, but it's better than no date.

L: Clear golden IPA, half finger frothy white head quickly dissipates into fine lacing across the top
S: Citrusy hoppy goodness, a little dankness floating around
T: Dank and delicious, tangerine, stone fruit notes. Mildly bitter, well balanced, very good
F: Easy to drink, not filling like other IPA with more malt, but not a session beer with no backbone
O: If you’re on a beach, this is a great choice. ABV is little lower than most IPAs, but it's not too malty, great for a summer day. Also, the 16 ounces is a nice bonus.

Thinking I got a bad 4pack?...bitter, bland and nothing juicy or tropical here for me.

16 oz can poured into a snifter. I liked the look which was classic West Coast IPA - moderately hazy and golden-amber with a foamy two-finger white head that lingered. This one had a bright citrus aroma, tangerine and grapefruit, right out of the can on the pour. Some earthy pine was also there. The taste featured earthy notes up front with lots of pine and some resin. The tangerine was there as well but stayed in the background. There was a deep old-school California bitterness that I appreciated. Dry and clean on the finish. Really enjoyed this one.

Poured from a 16oz can with a best by date of 2/3/2018; into a pub glass.
Appearance- gold with a snow globe of sediment and bubbles; head is a thick white tower of yeasty foam. Lacing is thick and sticky!
Smell- juicy tangerine, mango and peach!
Taste - the juicy fruit is not there unfortunately, more of a dull earthy profile.
Feel - dirty and bitter mouthfeel.
Overall- what starts out very strong, fades just as quickly.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy amber with a nice, sturdy head that leaves dots of lace all around

Smell: Graham cracker and citrus, with a hint of tropical fruit

Taste: Graham cracker malt underpins the citrus, with some grapefruit as well as tropical fruit tones of papaya and lychee; moderately bitter and somewhat piney, through the middle; the finish is rather balanced though it leans toward the hoppy side

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Very drinkable, with good balance and a tilt toward the west coast

Pours a regular lager yellow, aroma has hints of pine and hops, little citrus or malt there. Taste just is not "Hoppy" enough for me.

Pours a somewhat cloudy deep straw color. A tiny bit of sticky lacing. Aroma is fresh, dewy and citrusy. Taste is also citrus heavy, Feel is medium bodied and medium carbonation. Overall, I really liked this - very drinkable and I actually like it more/am not even close to tired of it after 3 pints...now that's a good sign.

Grabbed a single sixteen ounce can from Cedarville Wine and Spiritsee in Plymouth, Massachusetts for three dollars and twenty five cents. I think that I had this brew before, a long time ago, in a bottle. Solid brew, would not seek out, but would definitely buy again.

Four pack copped from Barnstable. Pours a copper ruddy hue with minimal frothing. Mellow aroma replete with hints of hops and citrus. Similar overall flavor profile.
