Served in a pint glass from the can.

Appearance: Golden body with medium to heavy bubbles creating a subtle white head rising maybe half a finger's length.

Smell: Light hops, malt scent.

Taste: Sweet citrus skin and heavy floral feel. Yes it's bitter but seriously thirst quenching grapefruit makes me want to chug this little animal.

Mouth: Sticky coming off a bit sour at the end. Medium to heavy carbonation and sticky once again.

Overall: Nice local pick up which I can't take for granted. Definitely more of your summer type of IPA but packs a punch. Always in a glass my friends. Salud.

Got in a BIF from beerloserLI. 16 ounce can into tulip glass, no canning date. Pours fairly crystal clear bright golden yellow color with a 2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, light honey, bread, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/tropical hops, and moderate pale malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, light honey, bread, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Good amount of piney/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, lemon/orange peel, pine, light honey, bread, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity and robustness of citrus/tropical hops and moderate pale malt flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately sticky/resinous mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice IPA. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical hops and moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

The aroma offers juicy grapefruit citrus and some sweet caramel.

The flavor follows with pine, that juicy grapefruit, a caramel sweetness and breadiness with a medium plus bitterness.

A well made American IPA.
