look: 4 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: pours a golden yellow color. a two to three finger white head with pretty good retention and a streaky lacing left on the side. partly hazy but some clarity.

Smell: strong sweet malts come out first. hops come on fairly strong with citrus and some hop resin.

Taste: opens up with crystal malt sweetness. hops come through with citrus and earthy tones. somewhat grassiness to it. ends with more sweetness with notes of lemon bread and some grains.

Mouthfeel: sticky and somewhat grassy. some sweetness to and a lingering grasst sweetness.

Overall: not sure the ages on this one but it doesn't say so I'll post anyways. way to much malt presence and sweetness, and a strange hop taste. too much grassiness comes through.

16oz can with the batch all smudged on the bottom. This just showed up in Denver so I would hope they sent something relatively fresh but the flavor tells me this may be a couple months old. Bright yellow color, decent lace andshort head. Aroma is mild lemon and citrus. Flavor rotates between this weird stale malt and a mild orange and lemon flavor. Overall I am pretty sure this is a couple months old based on the flavor.

Pours from the can a cloudy gold with two fingers of white foam. The nose is floral, pine and some malt. The pine is more predominant in the taste than the floral notes, and there's a decent bit of bitterness in the aftertaste. Medium mouth. Nice little IPA.

Great initial hoppy taste but terrible after taste. Tastes kind of like plastic

Nice easy IPA, not too hoppy. Grapefruit entry, easy IPA.
