Hazy orange color. Lot of rising bubbles. 1 finger white head. Citrus aromas and flavor. Some tropical fruit aromas. It kind of tastes like a West Coast IPA that sat on the shelf too long. Crisp, zingy mouthfeel. Very dry finish similar to ginger ale.

The beer comes in a hazy medium gold color, fluffy head that lingers.

The only 5 weeks from canning and it's a big bag of wet paper, tea leaves, bit of spicy and herbaceous hops, some grainy and bready sweetness.

The flavor follows with more of that cardboard and paper, a tinge of citrus and light crackery sweetness, onto a lingering medium minus bitterness.

Unsure what could have happened to this can in a short period of time for this to happen.

Appearance: Golden, maybe a tinge of amber and fairly clear, capped by a thinnish, white head.

Smell: Garden variety pale malts with aromatic hops smelling of green herb of the kind bud variety, sharp citrus and some pine.

Taste: Pale malts, minor hint of toasted grains, a bit bready. Little showing of malty sweetness. Robustly herbal, pulped citrus fruits and (again) some pine. Moderate bitterness. Hop flavors and their imparted bitterness carry one through the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: It's a hoppy ale, alright.

Taste: fresh, floral, guava fruit, white pepper, some bitter hops, dry finish. Floral spicy citrus aroma is notable. Gold, hazy, white soapy head some ringed lace. Medium body. Herbal and dry and almost an IPA. 50 IBUs
