Canned into Seidel, not sure what the date is.

As "session" IPAs go to this is fair. A bit watered down and, at the same time, overkill on some of the flavor profiles. Enjoyed at the pool on a hot summer day, but there are better of this variety out there.

12 oz can. Pours slightly hazy copper gold with a big frothy white head that retains well and laces the glass some.

The aroma is bready malt with some tropical fruit hops.

The flavor is sweet slightly metallic biscuit malts with a little fruit hop bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, too much biscuit malt, not enough hop flavor.

I got a can of Perrin's No Problems IPA for $1.69 at The Lager Mill. It's nice to see more of these cans from Perrin, so lets see how it goes. 2016 Vintage. Poured from a 12oz can into a IPA glass.

A- The can looks nice, it's got a nice clean design to it and it's just a little eye catching. It poured a pretty clear amber golden color that takes on more of a golden color when held to the light with two fingers worth of creamy slightly off white head that died down to a thick ring that stayed till the end and it left some nice patchy lacing behind. This is a very nice looking beer, I have no complaints.

S- The aroma starts off with a slightly higher amount of medium sweetness with the hops being the first to show up and they impart a nice mixture of fruity, floral and light green hops flavors with the the fruity hops sticking out the most and it imparts a berry and tropical fruit aroma and when it mixes with the sweetness it's almost like a fruity candy aroma. Up next comes the malts which impart a sweet malt aroma with a little bit of a pale malt aroma and they show up just enough. This beer has a good aroma, I like the hop profile.

T= The taste seems to be similar to the aroma, but lighter and it starts off with a medium amount of sweetness with the hops still being the first to show up and they impart the same aspects that they did in the aroma, but this time it's a little lighter and while the fruitiness still sticks out the most the floral and green hops show up more than they did in the aroma. Up next comes a slightly watery flavor followed by some doughy yeast which leads into the malts which impart the same sweet malt and pale malt aspects that it did in the aroma. On the finish there's a lower amount of bitterness with a nice hoppy aftertaste. This is a nice tasting beer, butt I wish that the hop flavors and the bitterness were cranked up just a little bit.

M- Smooth, a little crisp, fairly clean, on the lighter side of being medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. The mouthfeel is pretty nice and it works well with this beer.

Overall I thought this was a nice beer and a solid example of the style, it's not bad at all, but it doesn't have that extra hoppiness it needs to really it set it apart, but the hop profile was taking it in a good direction. This beer had a ok drinkability, one is enough for me, anymore than that and I think I would start to get bored with it. What I like the most about this beer is the appearance and aroma, they were both good and the highlights of this beer. What I liked the least about this beer was a lighter bitterness, I think IPA's should have a little more bitterness that this. I don't think I would buy this beer again, but I wouldn't turn one down. I can't say I highly recommend it, but if you want a solid IPA it's worth a try. All in all I liked this one, but I didn't love it and I think with just a little more work on the taste and drinkability and this could be a very nice beer. Nice job guys, this is a solid IPA.
