look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12oz can with a canned on date of 5/23/18; into a pub glass.
Appearance- a clear, golden yellow with several carbonation streams that effort to support a very thin, white head; lacing is merely okay.
Smell - a fairly unique, strawberry lemonade nose!
Taste - the strawberry lemonade aspect of the nose is present, however, a saltine cracker malt unfortunately overpowers it.
Feel - light, drinkable and fairly highly carbonated with enough of a bitter finish to qualify as an IPA.
Overall- the smell from the can and the glass is the strong suit of this ale, otherwise a fairly standard to below average session IPA.

Pale, straw yellow body; very cloudy; topped with a luscious, dense, creamy head; sticky sheets of foam cling to the glass. Very faint aroma; citrus; green grass. Light biscuit and cracker malt flavors with a slow-building yet decent hop bitterness; some dull tartness. Medium body; creamy with a slight bite; mostly dry finish.

Overall, a fine, low ABV beer. The lack of any strong nose is my only real complaint about this beer. Otherwise, it is very enjoyable.

Got in a trade with beergoot. 12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 4/30/2019. Pours moderately hazy pale golden yellow color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of tangerine, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, red apple, passion fruit, mango, watermelon, blueberry, citrus peel/zest, wood, peppercorn, pine, wheat, cracker, white bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical/fairly earthy hops and pale/wheat malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of big tangerine, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, red apple, passion fruit, mango, watermelon, blueberry, citrus peel/zest, wood, peppercorn, pine, wheat, cracker, white bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, woody, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, red apple, passion fruit, mango, watermelon, blueberry, citrus peel/rind, wood, peppercorn, pine, wheat, cracker, white bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/fairly earthy hops and pale/wheat malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and no astringent hop flavors after the finish. Fairly crisp/clean finishing. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy/sticky, and lightly resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is a very nice session IPA. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/fairly earthy hops and pale/wheat malt flavors; very smooth, refreshing, and fairly crisp/clean to drink the the mellowly bitter/resinous/drying finish. Very flavorful and not watery for the ABV. Feels like El Dorado, Mosaic. Very vibrant, and fairly juicy/dank/earthy hops; with a great clean pale/wheat malt backbone for the ABV. Minimal residual sweetness with crisp drying. A very enjoyable offering, and well made style example.
