Canned April 1st. Pours clear straw yellow, goodly amount of foam. Tropical fruity nose with bitter hops. Really bitter and dank hop taste that overwhelms any tropical fruit I got in the smell. Big bread notes from the malt. Good enough mouthfeel, perhaps a bit more carbonation. Pretty average DIPA in my book.

Aromas of perfectly balaced hops and malts. Citrusy and very zesty. Small amount of pine in the aftertaste. Medium amount of hop bitterness. Everything comes together to make a solid IPA

Poured from a 16 oz can into a snifter.
Grass, That is the nose and that is the taste. Grass and resiny

Good bready back bone but the mouth feel is a bit light.

Worth having again

16 oz canned 1/11/17 poured into IPA glass at fridge temp. Beer is golden turning to yellow in the light. Head is off white and long lasting with fair lacing. Smell is fairly faint tropical. Taste is citrus, citrus rind and earth. Pleasant bitterness on the end of the taste. Mouthfeel is dry, sharply carbonated with some resin stickiness as well. Overall, good, not great. I can buy in state independent beer for $3/16 oz can, so I wouldn't choose this at the same price.

Pale yellow color, medium white head. Floral, tropical citrus aromas. Taste matches, with plenty of hops of course. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Nothing out of the ordinary, but still nicely done. Pairs nicely with fish tacos.
