Had a couple of cans at East Bay Grill in Plymouth, for whatever outrageous price the outdoor bar was charging. I have had this a few times before, but did not realize that I hadn't rated it. Ver solid brew, with a nice bite. Have not had a bad beer from these guys.

Can dated 07/25/18 into a tulip glass.

L: Pours slightly hazy golden (could be mostly chill haze) with 1+ finger of variable density white frothy head with good retention and left ringed lacing.

S: Nice and enjoyable pineapple forward, with some earthiness and dankness hiding underneath.

T: Follows the nose well, but more balanced with some additional citrus. Finishes with moderate bitterness, some acidity, and dry.

F: Low-medium bodied with medium carbonation, lively on the tongue and slight burn from the acidity and the carbonation, slick on the swallow.

O: Very nice West Coast IPA, thoroughly enjoyed and would gladly have again.

This one holds up to the Wo. Beer Cup Bronze Award status on the can. Full of citrus and hops that can equally be profiled.

Finger plus of off-white to yellowish foam, loose and airy, immediately starts forming peaks and valleys, even the lacing looks whipped up and delicate but can at times stick well. Hazy yellow rust water look to the liquid, more translucent than full-on cloudy, scattered larger bubbles pop up out of nowhere and rush to the surface. In the nose even the dank herbal matter smells fresh and flirty, toasted rolls, pine sap and juicy tangerine, tangelo citrus fruit scents, the apricot, mango, green melon to green grape element soft and avoids extreme sweetness and tartness. Medium-bodied and drier than expected, coats the tongue and quickly numbs. This plays up the scone, bread crust to pine cone/needle and minerally earth qualities. At times shows a touch of quinine to mineral water. More dry pith character to the navel orange, white grapefruit citrus, there was more pop in the nose citrus-wise. The peach, apricot, papaya, melon fruit appears mute, enunciates the loudest through the finish. Balanced and arguably too integrated in that each constitutive part has little opportunity to shine. But drinks smoothly and if the dryness doesn’t bother you it’s borderline sessionable.
