Never seen a black can before. Pretty cool. 12oz. into Night Shift stemware. Shared with schen9303

Nose is grapefruit, tree resin, pine and brown sugar. Pretty bright though I'd like a little more grassiness here. Beer opens kind of bland actually. Notes of grapefruit, grass, pine and a waxy hop bitterness. Coarse brown sugar in the middle with some bark and a tea bitterness at the end. Solid overall but the flavors are just a bit muted here. Body is medium with moderate to carbonation. Prickly and filmy on the palate and goes down messy with an oily, lingering finish.

Per the description, I definitely don't get melon and tropical fruit. Instead, there's more grass, pine and tea bitterness. A decent IPA overall but not one I think I'd revisit.

12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 8/13/2018. Pours slightly hazy medium golden amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with awesome retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of huge tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, blueberries, citrus peel/rind, light peppercorn, pine, cracker, toasted bread, light honey, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fantastic aromas with amazing complexity and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and bready malt notes; with big strength. Taste of huge tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, blueberries, citrus peel/rind, light peppercorn, pine, cracker, toasted bread, light honey, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, blueberries, citrus peel/rind, peppercorn, pine, cracker, toasted bread, light honey, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Amazing complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and bready malt flavors; with an awesome malt/bitterness balance, and no lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/grainy/sticky, and lightly resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Minimal warming alcohol for 7.5%. Overall this is an amazing IPA! All around incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the modestly bitter/resinous/drying finish, not overly aggressive. Just as amazing as the base beer, but this time also has Simcoe and Kohatu for extra hop complexity. Insanely juicy, vibrant, dank, and earthy hop complexity; great bready malt backbone, mild residual sweetness with lingering dryness. A highly enjoyable offering as expected.

A - Pours a lightly hazed amber with a two finger foamy white head. Good amount of soapy lacing.

S - Aroma is orange peel, tangerine, grapefruit and lemon.

T - The taste is orange peel, tangerine, grapefrut rind, caramel malt and piney hops.

M - Medium body with medium carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel with a soft crisp finish.

O - A solid DDH version of Citra-Hero. The hops are more prominent and add a strong piney punch.

An aggressive pour reveals a hazy burnt orange color with a billowy light tan head. An absolutely gorgeous beer. The aromas plop you into the middle of the greatest orange grove ever - just wave after wave of ripe oranges.

The oranges dominate the taste, of course, but there’s also a significant malt component that this beer shares with its Hero brothers. Just a pleasure to drink, IMHO.
