12oz can given to me by @mr-jj. Canned on 02/24/17 (I think -- the month is stretched on the rim on the bottom).

Pours hazy light amber with a medium head and lots of carbonation. Nice looking beer. Smell is tropical juice and yeast.

Taste is very citrus, moderate tropical, and medium bitter finish. Interesting, tasty beer.

Mouthfeel is thick but not sticky. Overall, nice beer.

Out of a can into a 16 oz glass. Pours a hazy, amber color with a nice lacing of foam.
This is one of those IPA'S that hits the spot for me. My only complaint is that they disappear too fast.
Who woukd have thought that beer from a can could taste this good.

Honey colored, 2 finger head

Nose of cantaloupe rind, some citrus, sprite.

Lots of juicy hop. Lemon, lime, citra. Finish of sprite.

Exciting carbonation, and medium pop rocks-like feel.

Quality IPA. Little bit of dank, warming alcohol with a balanced hop quality. A flagship beer, no doubt. Nice finish.

fine stuff. Try 6.

A: Pours a hazy darker golden yellow with significant, gentle carbonation supporting a two finger tall creamy beige head that slowly reduces to a thick film and lotsa lacing.

S: Ample aromas of citrus hops - lemon, grapefruit, and orange - with pineapple and pine hops. There is a light amount of sweetness offered by a touch of caramel malts.

T: Upfront follows smell - there is a moderate amount of caramel malt sweetness which to the dominant hop flavors - with pungent pine hop and pineapple hop flavors followed by bitter finish. Good with food.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Slightly sticky with ample dryness in the finish.

O: Try 6. Excellent, well balanced.
