Thanks for the can Kevin!

A- Tallboy into a teku glass with a muddy, extremely hazy pale golden body and a thick, creamy white head. That cap stops rising at about an inch high and has great retention. A wide, foamy ring remains around the edges and tall sheets of lace result at each sip.

S- Lemony with a bitter zesty peel oil note and some more fruity juices in there as well. Generally hoppy but not a lot of specific things come to mind. Floral, herbal, mango, onion, dank and citrus notes.

T- Follows the nose very well with the lemon being far and away the main flavor of the beer. It starts out with a focus on the oily, zesty peel of the lemon but with time some more brightness comes out and you get the full Meyer lemon flavor profile with a sharp citrus peel bitterness. Beyond the bold lemon are hints of mango, bubble gum, passionfruit, earl grey tea, grapefruit, tangerine and oranges, very much citrus forward though.

MF- Body is on the light side overall with a medium level of carbonation. It puffs up quite a bit. Ends with a lemon peel bitterness lingering.

The use of lemon adds a bold and intense flavor of both the lemon flesh and the lemon zest. The lemon integrates into the IPA somewhat well but perhaps a bit less would allow the hoppy base to shine and marry the lemon flavor better.
