16 oz can into IPA glass. Dated 8/9/18.
Nice cloudy golden look leads to dank tropical fruit nose. Taste is light tropical fruit. Feel is light. Overall would buy again. Easy tasty drink and you don't notice the alcohol at all.

The Astronomical is one of the finest IPAs that I have ever had and believe that it is Wicked Weed’s best beer. Any haters out there, I know Wicked Weed was bought by AHB, you do not have to comment that below. This IPA is 7.7% abv, but I cannot find any IBU information. This brew is a tropical, fruity American IPA that relies on a citrusy profile with reasonable bitterness. This brew is pretty hard to find, I have actually been looking for it for a while. I definitely recommend this IPA for any IPA lovers out there.

This is supposed to be a NEIPA? It doesn't look like one, kind of smells/tastes like one (citrus/tropical notes), and definitely doesn't feel like one with an abrasive mouthfeel. But I suppose Wicked Weed will get away with a $13.99 4-pack, whether it's very good or not. Sadly.

16 ounce can - $4.29 at Sprayberry Bottle Shop in Marietta, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a clear, honey-gold body with an inch of white froth.

Smell: Ripe citrus tied with a gnarled ribbon of resiny herbs atop lightly sweet-scented maltiness.

Taste: Touches of dry crackers, touches of sweet cookie. Houses a citrusy orange-lime character, it's got some juiciness, it's got a little zestful oiliness. Slight herbaceousness, hint of orange blossom and a nibble of pear. Relatively light bitterness. Grows a bit tangy, gently citric with some of the alcohol showing on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation. Has a smooth creaminess, but it's also got a bit of tingle.

Overall: It's decent enough.
