I got a couple of cans of this beer from a mixed 12pck that I bought from my local meijer store. It poured a hazy golden with white head that is leaving some lace. The scent had bright bitter citrus notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with bitter Tangerine and orange presence. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it is a great beer.

From a 12 oz. can dated 12/20/21. Sampled Mar. 5, 202.

The appearance is a slightly hazy golden-amber under a linger, lacing-leaving white head.

The aroma is citrus and fruit with a noticeable bready barley grain presence.

Medium mouthfeel.

The taste begins sweet but then the grapefruit and other tropical introduce themselves. Overall, a clean and moderate finish. This one is more like a traditional IPA rather than a modern one.

thanks to Derek for giving me a can to try
L: hazy golden/yellow body; frothy off-white head slowly dissipates
S: lemony citrus but not much else
T: fruity flavors: lemon, peach, white grape, grapefruit, passion fruit; wheat
F: lighter side of medium for body, moderate carbonation, finish is modestly bitter but more tart than anything
O: pretty easy drinking beer, especially for 8% - goes down more like a session IPA, which could prove to be dangerous with this one

Poured into a tall clear pint glass. Appearance is a goldenrod color, with about a finger's worth of head and decent lacing and retention.

Aroma: tropical and citrusy. Notes of pineapple, mango, orange, tangerine, peach, and a little bit of fruit punch.

Really tasting the fruit punch on the palette, with some dry hoppy notes in the mixture too. Pretty sweet, chilling-tasting beer and the fruit notes mentioned in the aroma play with the fruit punch. Body is medium-light.

Hazy golden color with a thin white head. Hoppy on the nose with bubbles. The can has awesome art, but I am not sure about the statement on the top, "sunny and juicy IPA with notes of fruit punch and sweet bitterness." I could pretend there is some pineapple here, but I still can't find the fruit punch. Bitter, yes, sweet, no. The bitter notes are as expected for an IPA. Nevertheless, this is an enjoyable and drinkable IPA.

It was fresh 5/19/2020 and pours a slightly hazy orange color with a thin head and lots of carbonation. A nice citrus, pineapple aroma. Taste is light, citrus, orange, pineapple with a slightly dry finish. Mouthfeel is thin and leaves a nice hop presence on the tongue. Overall fairly tasty and delightful for a 6.5% ABV beer.

Tulip at Funky Town Fermentorium.

Opaquely hazed hop juice. Hardly any room left for the head, but it looks like a nice off white rendition.

Pineapple, mango, peach with juice dripping from every fruit the aroma conjures up in my minds eye. Sweet, sticky, hop heaven.

The flavors are explosive; like fruit shaped bottle rockets. There goes a pineapple! A flaming mango! The only downside is alcohol that becomes apparent as it warms, begetting some alcohol bitterness.

The body is very smooth and the carbonation is tight. Well done.

This is a hazy IPA that delivers on all fronts. That alcohol is the only drawback to me and everything else is so good that it’s not too distracting.
