Sampling a cellar temp can poured into a snifter. The beer pours a slightly hazy yellow color with a frothy bleached white head of 4 cm even with a gentle pour. The head fades slowly to a sturdy surface layer and leaves some clingy dense lattice on the glass. The aroma is some light melon and citrus with a good bit of bready yeast. Scents are pretty mild in general but are appealing on this beer. First sip reveals a light and crisp body with fine yet very tingly carbonation. Very easy drinking on the physical characteristics.
Flavor is some sweetness, with lots of melon and citrus dominate with a bit of a rindy note on the finish. No hints of alcohol and the beer drinks super easy. Makes a perfect summer beer and is very easy to drink while still being interesting. Worth a purchase for those warm summer nights poolside or at the beach.

12oz can. Pours a hazy burnt straw color with an inch of frothy head. Some lacing. Fruity aroma of melon, lime, tangerine, yeast, and hay. The taste is apricots, melon, tangerine and lime. Some doughy bread towards the end with a citrus peel and melon finish. Lots of carbonation with a slightly dry mouthfeel. Drinkable and rather juicy. Overall, a pretty good Session IPA I'll buy again.

Poured from a can - Born on 4/5/2017 (5 weeks old)

Look is a hazy, bright yellow-gold with a creamy white head that fades to a fine layer of foam with solid lacing.
Smells not so prominent. A noticeable yeast smell, with some orange juice and fruit. Maybe the hops were more prominent when it was super fresh.
Tastes very good, a bit different than expected from the nose. I can get some citrus, peach and apricot. A slight sweet candied malt undertone, but otherwise a pretty clean base.
Feels pretty good, smooth and juicy, a bit oily. It has a decent bitterness and leaves a slightly sweet, slick feel in my mouth.

Overall, pretty good but I would have liked more hop aroma - maybe I'll have to find it again somewhere and see if the freshness was a factor.
A tasty beer!
