4.41/5  rDev +6.5%

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a Royal Gorge souvenir pint glass. Appearance is yellow and hazy like unfiltered cider. It looks like a hazy IPA should look. Moderate white head leaves a little lacing. The nose is heavily tropical. Passion fruit, maybe some lemon.
Tastes great. I was expecting more bitterness from an IPA but I’m not disappointed. This is juicy, refreshing and hop forward without being aggressively bitter.
I just cracked the first can in a 6 pack of this spring seasonal and I already know I’ll be picking up another before it leaves. I wouldn’t rate a beer any higher based on such things but the local in-jokes on the can notes are excellent.

Poured from a 12 oz can:

Pours a hazy gold with a slight orange tint. Head is very thin and retains very little compared to F5, but more than most common lagers would.

This beer is extremely aromatic. Smells very sweet, lots of guava and ripe melon. Maybe something grassy in there too.

Taste follows the nose, but the grass flavors are more present than I expected. It’s surprisingly dry given the aroma.

Feel is relatively light with strong carbonation. The dry grassy finish leaves a little sensation on the tongue for a few seconds.

Overall - super interesting, and I like it more every time I try it.

look: 3 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pours a hazy gold with a thumb of pearl colored head. Average head retention & lacing

S: Melons, guava, peaches

T: Follows the nose, getting white grape as well, dryness as well up front. Green melon & white grape as this warms, a little Bartlett Pear as well, plus dryness. Finishes with plenty of green melon, some pear & dryness

MF: Lively carbonation, with light/medium body, good balance

Solid shot at the style, I would buy it again

Purchased from an Oklahoma liquor store. Poured from a 12 oz. can into a glass. Kinda had to get it as an Okie, given the "hook echo" reference.

Very attractive golden liquid with big white head. Lots of hop aroma, some citrus.

Flavor is full --- definitely lots of hops, but not overpowering, with more citrus and spruce notes than bitter. Some pineapple and a slight bit of grapefruit, some spices.

Medium to full mouthfeel, very smooth.

This is a good one, might be my new favorite summer beer, seasonally appropriate but still complex and interesting.
