Bought a 16 oz can at Portland grocery store on the recommendation of the beer dude.
I am not keen on hazy beers....they have become an abomination of brewing. But that turns out to be the end of my complaints.
A very pleasant tasting hoppy beer ---- not in the current citrusy/fruity bent, but just old school resiny/piney/grassy...nice!
Sticky, dry aftertaste.
Very nice beer. IPL is an interesting style (I also enjoyed Gulpener's Ur Hop IPL from the Netherlands).

Poured from 16 oz can. Couldn’t find any date stamp on can - disappointing. For a beer touted with 3x dry hop, there was barely perceptible hop nose. Mouth feel was spot on with a nicely balanced strong malt body and hop bitterness. My biggest letdown was the lack of strong hop nose and hop forward flavor. Perhaps it wasn’t really fresh? But with no date on the cans it’s hard to tell

Thanks goes out to colby600 for this brew.

16 oz. Can
Canned On: 11 08 17

Poured into a DFH glass a pretty nice hazy golden yellow color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy two-finger white head, which also leaves some pretty nice creamy sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, hoppy, with a pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple), with a nice pineyness. The taste is pretty nice, malty, hoppy, with a really nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple), very nice pineyness. Medium body, ABV hidden very well, with a nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, this one really surprised me. Glad to have gotten a chance to try it. Nice Job JAB! Thanks Bill!

They've attempted to create something an IPA drinker would enjoy but it comes off as half finished. I cant find what about this beer earns the name "excess". Not great, not terrible.
