Thanks @jzeilinger for solid tropical yet slightly bitter IPA. Mouthfeel is about medium, plenty of life, not dry, and drinks very easy at 7.5%. Nice beer.

A - Pours a semi-pale lemon yellow and looks more like a Pils than an IPA. Nice moderately thick bright white lacing ring and steady carbonation.

S - Lemon and sticky tropical fruit aroma.

T - Light tropical fruit, delicate lemon rind comes out, bright citrus, some earthiness, and ends with a peppery citrus spiciness. This beer is an interesting one, it strikes me as a Pils / IPA hybrid and shows qualities of both beers.

M - Thick mouthfeel for such a pale IPA, pleasant finish with some tropical fruit tang.

O - I could see myself crushing a few of these during the Summer months. An easy drinker and at $39.99 for a case of quality craft it's a great deal.

Canned 7/2/18

Look- crystal clear pale golden, almost like a pilsner; 1 finger white head that fades a way to a ring around the edge of the glass; spotty lacing

Aroma- dank weed and grapefruit are predominant but I'm also picking up some hints of peaches, green grapes and tangerine

Taste- peaches and pineapples, dank weed, green grapes, a little grapefruit pith bitterness and subtle bready malt under that

Feel- light bodied and medium carb; nice dry and slightly bitter finish; really refreshing

Overall- surprisingly light and refreshing IPA despite the ABV (7.5%) with nice fruity and dank hop notes, moderate bitterness and a light malty backbone for balance.
