Can dated 5/14/17.

A: pours a beautiful orange gold, one finger of bright white head dissipates quickly. Little carbonation.

S: floral and resiny. Very typical session IPA.

T: tangy floral and Resiny hop. Little malt base. Imbalanced; a little more malt than some.

M: lightweight, thin, clean and bubbly. Highly carbonated.

O: pretty standard session IPA; it does what it sets out to do, but nothing special.

Poured from a 12 oz can,into a large Funky Buddha snifter.Best by 7/26/17.

L- Frothy white colored head that stands 1 finger tall,with good retention and sticky lacing.Hazy light gold / straw colored body with moderate clarity,and distorted light showing through the glass.Heavy amount of carbonation.

S- On the nose I get light citrus and line hops,balanced by some sweet biscuit malt.Some grassy notes in there as well.

T- The palate follows the nose with slightly bitter pine hops up front,some faint citrus in the middle,and sweet biscuit / cracker malt flavors on the back end.There is a hint of floral spice hops on the back end to balance the malt.

F- The mouth feel is thin with a mildly sticky texture.Moderate amount of oxidation on the tongue,with a smooth finish.

O- This is a good session IPA,for a hot summer day.I could sit back and pound these in the heat.I would drink this again,and recommend at least trying one.
