Poured from a 16 ounce can into a Shaker pint glass, there is no "best by" date that I can find.

Appearance: pours a hazy, light golden color with one-finger white head that slowly dissipated until a thin, broken layer of small bubbles remained, there is moderate lacing on the glass, highly carbonated.

SMELL: understated to the nose, bread with pine and tropical citrus.

TASTE: initially sweet citrus like pineapple then bread and finishes with some pine resin, the taste is understated and does not overpower.

PALATE: medium body and highly carbonated.

OVERALL: this is a good session IPA, at 4.5% ABV you can enjoy more than one at a time, I like lower ABV beers if they taste good and this one does, I will buy this again and recommend to anyone who enjoys session IPA.

At first i thought it smelled a tad lemony...until my wife pointed out that it smelled like vomit. Kinda like a bathroom after a day of flu puking. Now thats all i can smell, dilute barf. Taste follows the nose. Its not like full strength uncarbonated vomit, but more like dilute overcarbonated vomit. Highly carbonated, thin mouthfeel as expected for a session ipa. Would not buy another but highly recommend if you like puke beer. I drank the whole can.

16 oz can into IPA glass. Batch #028, no date.
Look is nice cloudy golden yellow. Nose is light tropical fruit. Taste follows, nice easy tropical fruit. Feel is light and easy. Overall, a nice session with flavor. Would buy again.

A nice session IPA from Evil Twin, who again can't go wrong. It reminds me quite of Nickel Brook's Neighbour although noth that boomingly tropical (wow that was awesome!). This is a bit lighter or thinner if you might want to call it, a little less intensive, a little bit more like a session IPA should be with more aroma but a paperweight body. This one is I guess a single-hop Citra and kind if fizzy with carbonation. It is good and it is very sessionable. Here it goes:

"Despite his bitterness, lack of power and insuperable aversion to any kind of extravagant labor - he kind of has a charming charisma, and perhaps he is even loveable. Somehow we find him unbelievably irresistible and stimulating because he is one of the few that masters the ability to effortlessly impress with hos sharp intelligence and make it look so damn easy."

1 PINT can
Served in an oversized, stemless, wine glass

This beer pours a hazy yellow color. It is topped with two inches of creamy eggshell head that leaves spotty lacing.

The aroma is lemon with light citrus notes.

The flavor is light citrus with a mild pine finish.

It has a light to moderate mouthfeel with biting carbonation.

It's a typical boring session IPA which is just a watered down version of a great style. I would rather have a hoppy lager over a "session" IPA any day.

Has a slightly hazy, light lemon color.
Smells like the taste.
Taste is maybe some of that grassy taste everybody is always talking about and then a bitter finish.
The feel reminds me of the American light beers, thick carbonation.
Overall it's a good beer for party drinking at 4.5abv but not one you want to put on the tasting list.

On tap in a tulip.

Hazy pale yellow color with a 1F thick white head. Fat rings of lacing.

Dry mineral aroma dominates. Faint citrus hop smell.

Slightly sweet malt, grassy like a light pale ale can be. Light lemon flavor.

Light body with adequate carb. Dry finish.

Drinkable and fresh but a bit lackluster.

Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a semi-muddy to pale dried orange color with a finger's worth of quickly dieing white foamy head that left just a smattering of sticky messy lace.
The aroma presented some nice sweet citrus to freshly cut grassy notes flowing over some lemon pulp sweetness and a light sweet wheat.
The flavor was mainly the sweetness of the blend of the citrus and grassiness. Mild aftertaste of sweet lemon pulp.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt on par. ABV felt appropriate.
Overall, as a session IPA, I'd say it works. I could come back to in warmer weather.

This is a refreshing oily session IPA. The use of citra makes it a lot about the lemon. The malt base is light and some wheat is certainly on the bill. Not the most complex ipa but a balanced one

I'm not sure what everyone's thinking. I like evil twin a lot. This tastes like Amstel light. This is one of the worst beers I've ever tried.
