My 1st from a cool LA brewer, integrated well into that huge metropolis.
Following the American business model, they can an AIPA. Part good, part OK

15 pack at Kroger, canned on 5/17/17 (yikes)

A: Giant f'ing head. So big I had to slow my pour on the second can. Long lasting head. Laces the glass. Lots of bubbles.

S: light citrus, light cracker

T: Some zest, some pineapple, light bread, light pine. Light everything. But it's there. It's not hop water. I'm going to tack on a little extra in the score because it's in there and balanced, nice effort here on a session. It's like a good pilsner with a little extra hop, actually quite good.

M: Dry finish. Light on the mouth (there's that word again). Medium carbonation. Light bodied. It's a refreshing beer. I could drink the whole 15 pack.

O: This is a pretty good session IPA, and it is VERY easy to drink. I'm pretty impressed. For those days, or nights, you don't want to get plastered off a few beers this is a very good choice, much better than the adjunct swill and really not that much more coin for it. A really good easy-going beer.

12 oz can served in a Tervis at the 2017 Fall ASMF.
Lively carbonation leads to a large foamy head.
Moderately biter but strong flavor for a session IPA.
Fruity and faintly floral with a hint of pine.

12oz can with a smudged date on it.

Cloudy piss-yellow with a small sudsy film. Smell is pine and white bread. Taste is kind of hollow - just the hops shine through. But i don't have a problem with this because the hops are dank and wet like musty underarm. Pine tree, grass and tropical fruit flavors

Would be great in tall-boy format on a hot summer day
