Pint can, drank 3 months before BBF date.
Pours a light golden straw color. Aroma of mangoes, pineapple, citrus. Taste is of the same as aromas. Has slight carbonation.
Bought out of curiosity as a single. If your preference is a citrusy foreword IPA, this is it. Not bad, not good enough for me to buy again.

Pours a translucent light golden color with a good retentive head.

Smell is citrus and danky hops.

Taste is dank hop in the beginning briefly, fades Into pine in the mid. Very mellow finish on the hoppy side.

Look - pale yellow gold. small soapy white head that dissipated quickly. almost no lacing when I finished this brew.
Smell - floral, pine, spice.
Taste - floral, fruity, hop bitterness, spice, pine.
Feel - light and medium carbonation. Floral, fruity and hoppy. Good combo of pine and spice with a dry sticky finish.
Overall - this is a decent IPA. I enjoyed the dry sticky finish that made you want to take another sip. It's an easy drinking IPA for sure. For maximum drinking pleasure, crank up Stone Cold by Rainbow as you take this mother down.

Purchased at Liquor Town, Louisville, KY. 4pk/16oz cans $17.99

Pours a deep golden yellow color. Semi-opaque. A foamy head on the initial pour that fades to a light skim. Sticky lacing on the sides of the glass.

Aromas of citrus and bitter hops.

A very easy drinking IPA. Flavors of citrus, mango and bitter hops. The ABV is not noticeable.

A thinner consistency with mild carbonation.

Overall, an enjoyable beer although nothing spectacular. It’s not a heavy brew so very easy to have a couple and not feel overly full. For the cost, I feel there are probably better options but will enjoy finishing the remaining brews. Cheers!
