No canned on date so I'm not sure if this is old or just bad. Odd earthy orange tea taste.

Pours a slight hazy gold with a good solid head. Break is quick leaving a thin layer of foam. Some minor lacing.

Smell is citrus strong, especially orange. There are some other minor elements in play, but the orange dominates.

Flavor is similar to the nose, with the citrus leading the way. I get some nice orangey elements and then a soft hop.

Feel is light end of medium, and carbonation is medium as well. The finish fades fast, but what you leave with is a nice citrus.

Love the name of this beer. It's a good utility beer that I would consider going to again. In a crowded market though, it's going to get lost.

I seem to be stuck in a hazebro AIPA death spiral of late! I am unabashed in my stated dislike of this recent variation on my favorite beer style, but The CANQuest (tm) has a mind all its own. I will CANtinue to rate & review these beers, but with each one, I long for the return of pine & grapefruit. Sigh.

From the CAN: "Ladies & Gentlemen"; "Hazy IPA"; "The urban Trash Panda will spend most of its life scouring garbage bins for the dankest, juiciest hops that the Northwest CAN offer. Don't be fooled by this bandit's cute little mask - this snarling vermin won't leave any CAN unturned."

I Crack!ed open the vent & began a slow, gentle Glug in the dying hope that maybe some semblance of clarity might result. When it became obvious that this endeavor was in vain, I upped the ante & tipped up the CAN, letting it run free. It quickly bubbled up, forming two-plus fingers of dense, foamy, tawny head with good retention that left behind lots of nice lacing as it fell. Color was a deeply-hazy/lightly-cloudy Yellow-Gold (SRM = 4 -5). Nose was more citrusy than tropical, orange peel, tangerines, peaches, but the usual mango/guava/papaya suspects also showed up to the party. Meh. Mouthfeel was medium, but the haze also lent it a creaminess. The taste was really interesting in that it did not precisely match the nose. Instead, it actually had a citrusy bitterness & a pine-y mintiness as well as the sweetness noted on the nose. Bizarre. It was kind of a hazy NW-NE blend. I have to cop to liking it more than many that I have drank, reviewed & rated in recent memory, but I still felt unfulfilled. Finish was in that undefinable semi-sweet/semi-dry zone. Lot of variegated flavors going on in this beer, but still just not quite up to the style's par. YMMV.

355ml can poured into tulip.

Pours a murky orange with half a finger of dirty white head that leaves sudsy rings of lace as it recedes.

Smells of muddled citrus rind, pineapple, bready caramel malt and mildly dank piney hops.

Tastes of more bitter citrus rind and tropical fruit, bread crust and pine resin.

Feels soft and creamy. Medium bodied with smooth carbonation. FInishes dry.

Verdict: Recommended. Not exactly complex, but pretty tasty.
