look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a can (canned on 8/14/19) into a pint glass. Color is a hazy yellowish brown, can't see through the glass but not so dense I would call opaque (It would let light through), very little head or lacing (probably due to a calm pour). Smell is of citrus, mainly orange with some pineapple. Taste is is more bitter than juicy. At 7.2% abv no alcohol taste. Mouthfeel is fairly dry with a slight amount of tanginess. Over all a decent beer. Would drink again. Would really like to try this one fresher than 2 months.

Six pack of cans purchased at QFC in Bothell, Washington.
Canned on 08/30/19. Poured in to a pint glass.

Look- Slightly hazy golden orange color, modest off-white head with good retention, spotty lacing. Light carbonation streams as it sits.

Smell- Citrus (lemon, lime, tangerine/orange, grapefruit), Tropical fruit (pineapple, light mango), pine, light apricot, a bit of cantaloupe and berries. Sweet malt, floral, grass and spicy notes.

Taste- Follows the nose pretty well, melon and berries seem to not be there like in the nose.

Feel- Medium/light bodied, semi dry, mild bitterness, good carbonation on the tongue.

O- Solid. The Can-O-Bliss series has been great and this one doesn't disappoint either. Price point makes it a repurchase while it's still around.

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

Hazy, translucent gold with a soapy white head. Good retention and splotchy lacing.

Smells like apricot, cannabis, grapefruit, and earth.

Tastes like pink grapefruit and peel, apricot, peach, honeydew melon, cannabis nugs, honey malt, a hint of nutty possibly oats, and earthy dankness.

Medium-ish mouthfeel, moderate carbonation, clean with a slight stickiness.

A decent enough hazy IPA. Enjoyable.

L. Hazy dull orange, small head of various sized bubbles reduces to a fat ring and bubbly patches.
S. Well, yeah. Citrusy blast in the nostrils. Orange, lemon, lime, maybe even some pineapple, honey sweetness.
T. Tastes almost as bold as the aroma, orange, lemon, and grapefruit flesh. Zesty bitterness in the finish. Bright honey/toffee malt sweetness is there but not overdone.
F. Medium feel, lively, has a bite to it.
O. Better than I thought it was going to be. I'd buy it again. Cheers!

4.17/5  rDev +6.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Look: Pours an opaque, orange yellow color with a one finger head of fine foam.

Aroma: Sweet grapefruit, bitter tangerine pith, mild fruity banana, a little burnt caramel.

Taste: Well rounded. Starts off on bittersweet flavors of sweet orange and grapefruit zest which quickly evolve into more bitter flavors of pine sap and spicy hop resin. The bitterness, while not overpowering, comes to a crescendo before finally subsiding back into flavors of sweet tangerine, clementine and juicy grapefruit. It ends as the original flavors dissolve into a backdrop of caramel + biscuity pale malt.

Feel: Mid weight, light carb. Dry/bittersweet. Never cloying or overtly bitter. %Abv not overpowering.

Overall: It's halfway between a session and imperial IPA. Excellent flavor and weight to the ale. The nose is a little congested but it doesn't detract from the taste. I probably wouldnt seek this out again but it did not disappoint.

12oz can into a pint glass.

Look: An ever so slightly hazy, golden-orange with a finger-width white head that dissipates leaving a little bit of spotty lacing down the side of the glass.
Smell: Lots of citrus, as advertised. Orange, tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, some tropical fruit like pineapple and mango, and a sweet earthy note.
Taste: Much like the nose, with a crisp finish.
Feel: Medium body with small bubbles.
Overall: Great if you're looking for a citrusy IPA that's easy to find, and pretty darn easy to drink for 7.2%

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

12oz canned 8-5-19, opened 9-6-19.
1" white head, decent retention down to a solid cap. The IPA is a somewhat opaque yellow-gold.
Pungent nose of citrus and tropical fruits, also some wild onion...lemon, pineapple and mango.
Soft and fruity flavors of lemon, orange, tangerine, and pineapple. A light raw yeasty edge.
Medium to full body, low to medium carbonation. Full mouthfeel, very low bitterness. Medium length, slightly chalky, fruity finish.
Easy to drink. Good.
