3.73/5  rDev -6.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Presentation: 16 oz. can with the canning date on the bottom. Served in a tulip glass.

Appearance: The fluffy, bright white, one finger head stays around for a while and leaves behind a thick foam layer and lots of lacing in big patches. It's a murky, pale yellow color.

Smell: The aromas are fruity but faint. Mostly orange, grapefruit, lemon and a hint of fresh cut grass.

Taste: It's juicy and fruity with some bitterness as it goes down. There's orange, lemon and a healthy, grainy cereal backbone. A hint of oily hop resin lingers in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: It's creamy and medium bodied but still refreshing with medium-low carbonation.

Overall: It's a very good and very well made beer but it doesn't really stand out in any particular way.

It says this beer is retired, but I just finished a can from The Wall of Beer in Clemson, SC that was canned on 3/21/19.

This is really a nice beer! The hops play really well together, nice malt backbone for balance, and a really nice citrus (orange peel, grapefruit, tangerine) flavor. Not as bitter as I usually prefer, but this a flavorful beer that is really fun to drink.

Pours a murky tan with medium carbonation. Lots of juicy hops on the nose. Taste is much the same with hops coming through with lots of danky/grass flavor along with some grainyness. It's almost a little too hoppy and the flavors seem a little muddied with it being more dank than fruity but it's still very drinkable and enjoyable.

Had from can dated 7-30-18

For folks located in the southeast, this beer tastes like a Tropicalia turning into a Basement. Bright foggy OJ, lots of sweet pineapple and mango in the nose, tastes like overripe grapefruit and melon. Tasty beer, worth picking up.

1 Pint can with a canned on date of 10/17/17

L - Blond and cloudy, huge 2 fingers of head and tons of white lacing left all over the top of the brew and the glass

S - Mango, tangerine, grapefruit - tons of citrusy aromas going on

T -Tons of citrus here. Grapefruit, lightly bitter - and tons of hopping

F - Medium body and well carbonated.

O - A great IPA! Looks like I am a little late to the series - but will look for more in the future.

16 oz can dated 10/17/17

Hazy golden, translucent. Not murky. Clears as chill haze subsides. Requires a hard pour to raise over a finger’s head. Curtains lacing and a persistent ring of carbonation. Large continent on the surface.
Smells like tangelos, pineapple, mango, yeast in the background.
Tastes like grapefruit pith, tropical fruits, lingering citrus notes. Deep background floral and spice on the back of the tongue.
Long lasting carbonation, dry but not bitter, light body, goes down rapidly.
Overall, a great hop combination, very enjoyable.

4.25/5  rDev +6.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours a clear golden color with just a slight haze; the two finger head sticks nicely; shards of lacing hang around

Smell: Citrusy, with grapefruit, apricot and mango tones

Taste: Apricot and mango tones forward, with pink grapefruit adding a citrusy edge, through the middle; moderately bitter, after the swallow, with a delicate finish and just a hint of residual sweetness

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate to high carbonation

Overall: A very pleasant and crushable IPA

3.54/5  rDev -11.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

16 oz can poured into a shaker pint.

A: Slightly hazy light amber almost gold body sits atop a creamy white head that lingers.

S: honeydew, cantaloupe, tangerine, mango, a little papaya and some light yeast and honey.

T: Lingering yeast, a light bit of fruits mentioned above, mostly that underlying yeastiness.

M: yeasty chalky very full coats and lingers on the tongue.

O: not that taken with this one. The mouthfeel and yeastiness is unpleasant beer feels unfinished. The fruitiness is really second fiddle to the overlaying yeast flavor.

Can stamped 10/17/17

Hazy gold with a thick creamy head that retains well. Oily fruity hop aromatics: tangerine, grapefruit, melon, spruce, and faint granola. Flavor is creamy citrus, apricot, light peppery spice, tea, and pine resin. Medium bodied and crisp. Drinks almost like a session IPA.

4.19/5  rDev +5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours a very lightly hazy medium apricot in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and moderate medium yellow + medium golden yellow colored highlights. The beer has a two finger tall sudsy foamy white head that reduces to a few small to medium sized patches of medium thick film surrounded by a large patch of thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of citrus/grapefruit, citrus/orange, citrus/tangerine, and tropical/mango hops over the top of light aromas of slightly sweet biscuit malts.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of biscuit malts with a light amount of caramel + grainy sweetness. That is followed by slightly stronger than moderate flavors of citrus/grapefruit, citrus/orange, citrus/tangerine, and tropical/mango hops which imparts a light to moderate amount of bitterness which fades away pretty quickly leaving juicy citrus hop flavors lingering.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Initially crisp with a light amount of dryness in the finish.

O: Enjoyable with a really nice combination of hop aromas + flavors. Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol. I could easily have a couple of these.
