A citrus ipa? Maybe... But putting the word “juicy “ on the can got my hopes up and left me longing for something this beer is not.

Light bodied, lacking in distinctive flavor. Not terrible, just too many other good beers available to choose this one again.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 12 fl oz can on August 3, 2018. Dry hopped with Mosaic and Simcoe cryo hops. Notes of juicy guava, passionfruit and pineapple.

Clear yellow-orange can pour with a thin head and a grapefruit/catty aroma The flavor is light orange and pineapple with a bit of malt. Would like the sweet malt flavor to last a bit longer before the bitterness takes over. This is a very light-bodied ale.

L: Mostly clear honey gold with a small head that totally dissapated and left no lacing.

S: Juicy, but still a general everyday IPA aroma, nothing exceptional or stand out.

T: Again, like a juicier basic West Coast IPA. Really there's nothing wrong with that though.

F: Medium, great carbonation, a bit of easy bitterness, nice dry finish.

O:. Pretty solid IPA, better than a lot of these damn hazy rotating ones that are more than double the price of this one here.

12 oz. Can
Best By: 08/07/2018

Poured into a Trillium glass a slightly hazy golden yellow color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger white head, which leaves some nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with a nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, pineapple, guave, passionfruit), nice little diesel like. The taste is pretty nice, hoppy, malty, with a nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, pineapple, guave, passionfruit), nice little diesel like. Medium body, ABV is hidden nicely, with a nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, a pretty tasty brew.

Meh....easy drinking IPA I guess but this has absolutely nothing going for it in any category, in fact you could call it downright bland, and even tasteless for that matter. Along the lines of Lawnmower IPA but with even less taste. I'd rather drink Miller Light to tell you the truth.

Pours somewhat cloudy gold, a head that is white and smells of oranges, nice citrus. Mouthfeel is moderate and tastes of grapefruit, a little banana. Body is a bit thin and makes this a light tasty IPA.

Can with a best by date of 6/20.

Pours clear yellow with a minimal head or retention. Citrus in the nose but pretty subdued. On the thin side of medium bodied. Hints of orange and grapefruit on the palate with a moderate bitterness and some sweet malt. Finishes quick and forgettable.

Lacking the mouthfeel, hops, or juicy character found in a NEIPA.

On draft. This is a nice, juicy and low-abv IPA. The description of tropical and citrus flavors is spot-on. I'm a little surprised by the relatively low ratings - maybe this is best on draft?

-clear yellow-orange can pour with a thin head and a clementine aroma. The flavor is light orange and pineapple with a bit of malt. Hop bitterness is relatively low. This is a very light-bodied ale.
