Pours a pale amber leaning towards straw yellow with a white head.

Smells of citrus, tropical fruit, and resinous pine.

Taste is tropical fruit - mango and star fruit - followed by citrus - orange and grapefruit. There is a slight hit of malt then a heavy resinous pine flavor. A solid IPA.

Can from Bayshore Beverage Sandusky.
Mostly clear deep yellow with a good sized bubbly white head that persists. Tangerine apricot pine and grapefruit rule the nose with a sweet bready malt deep underneath. The flavor is more pine and grapefruit than anything else. Bitter resinous drips off your tongue long after each sip. Bold tasty bitter IPA.

There is a very promising nose with hints of pineapple that the taste never delivers. However, it is a crisp, clean, gently bitter beer that has a pleasant mouth feel. If the deliver some of the nose on the taste they will have a winner.

Consumed on June 27th, 2016 in a fancy-schmancy Teku glass. Poured from a can dated 4-28-16.

Pour is a pale golden yellow that looks darker and more cloudy once it settles. Spotty lace.

Smell is rough and raw; pine and asphalt with grace notes of lemon and grass.

Flavor is unsatisfactorily thin with all the brash, unrefined hop notes from the nose with nothing to balance them out. Massive bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and a bit prickly but lacking in heft for such a bitter brew.

Overall, the lack of balance in this beer turned me off. Not a drain pour, but I don't think I'll be drinking this beer again.

12 oz can. Light golden color with slight haze, two finger white head with good retention, soapy lace. Piney oniony hop aroma. Taste I'd definitely hop forward, combo of dank weed and earth onion, grapefruit peel, touch of melon and sweetness. Medium semi soft mouthfeel. Overall good IPA, would drink again.

Poured from can into pint glass; nice golden color with one finger head. Hints on fruit and pine take the air. Initial taste is well balanced without a lot of "bite" from the hops. Settles very nice on the palate. Very enjoyable beer.
