3.88/5  rDev +19%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12oz can with a canned on date of 6/5/18, enjoyed on 7/27/18; into a pint glass.
Appearance- semi hazy gold and lots of bubbles; medium, thin frothy white head that fades to a slightly thinner layer; lacing is thick and sticky!
Smell - more of a hop nose, with juicy citrus and some pine tree!
Taste - definitely some grapefruit and pine, but the malts are far more present than in the nose.
Feel - light, mildly bitter with nice carbonation; definitely par with quality APA’s.
Overall- this borders on IPA territory, however, the flavor profile leans more APA; really good beer though!

I'm guessing this is the one I have, based on the date stamp on the can. There is no other indication which in the series it is.

This is bitter, approaching IPA, with little to no dry hopping discernible in the nose.
Tastes faintly like melamine - like melted plastic - due to the hops, a taste I associate with so many Massachusetts beers for some reason.

Quite disappointed, as I thought this would be the one of the sampler pack I liked most.
I poured out the second half.
