Brewed by:

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.80%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Slap Fight will woo you in with a West Coast-style malt bill, but slaps you across the face with its tropical hop profile. Light in body, heavy in character, this IPA features Munich and Crystal pale malts for a clean, rich mouthfeel. Comet, Equinox and Mosaic hops lend a pungent herbal aroma, peppered with hints of papaya, orange and grapefruit. Present this beer to a friend. If he does not drink it immediately, slap him as hard as you can. Repeat.

Poured from 12oz can into glass. Can has stamped best by date of '12/01/2018'.
Slightly cloudy, pale gold colored body. One finger white head, dissipates to thin islands and ring. Leaves behind a spotty and oily coating of lacing.
Heavy hops in the aroma - lots of orange.
Taste has the citrus hops, along with a touch of dank hops. Mostly sweet at first but quite a bit more bitter at the end.
Medium mouth feel. Lots of tongue burn with each sip. Good carbonation.
The can lists the descriptive terms of "FRESH DANK JUICY", and these descriptors show up through the taste profile. This beer is not real bitter, but the dank does show up, and overall it is juicy.

Look: golden-amber in a snifter glass. Slight haze. Medium white head with good lacing.
Aroma: oranges, pineapple, some earthy resin, faint bready malt.
Taste: as expected, with bright and juicy citrus fruit. A nice herbal undercurrent and a restrained but balanced malt presence.
Feel: medium-bodied and carbonated - appropriate for style.
Overall: a nice easy-drinking "juicy" IPA.

Excellent on the first try! Nice citrusy taste, excellent hops, and a nice bitter back to finish it off! Will definitely drink it again.
