12 oz can poured into willybecher glass canned on 6/27

A: Amber dark gold in color, hazy body. Head is a creamy white and decent sized disappating quickly.

S: Smells like fresh cut grass, lemon, and light hints of cantaloupe, touches of maltiness.

T: Sweet, malty, light hints of the nose. Very light hints of lemon and grass. Mostly just malts and sweetness. You get light hints of citra hops but nothing astonishing.

M: medium to fuller a little heavy for what it is purported to be.

O: Very average Citra hopped beer. The citra has the nose but nothing in the follow through with the taste. The beer is unnecessarily sweet and malty. If you are looking for a great Citra hopped forward beer this isn't it.

Canned 6/28

Pours a bright orange gold. Big cream colored sea foam head. Slighlty transparent.

Smells like tropical fruits. Mango, orange, melon, papaya. Also a lot of sweet doughy malts.

Wow. Sweet. Malty. Kind of a mess. Some of the fruit is there along with a little bit of out of place pine and aspirin bitterness. Just really sugary.

Body is pretty full. A bit syrupy and hard to drink. I would swear this is an imperial/dipa.

I was surprised by this one. Thought it was a safe bet since I love Anti Hero. Not sure if it crashes hard, or I had a bad batch because the ratings don't reflect what I am trying to finish.

Poured from the bomber into an IPA glass. Appears a dark golden to orange color with an off-white head. The nose is light and not overly impressive. Decent citrus notes of pineapple and mango, but there's also just a touch too much sweetness here for me. The taste is well balanced with good orange and pineapple notes. Some caramel points come through as well. Overall, it's a good IPA, but a bit too much on the sweet side for me.
