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.

Very happy to have found a new favorite beer. Thank you WW. For my taste, it was the perfect blend of smooth, citrus, and hops. Wish it were a lower ABV, would not have guessed 7.5+%.

Pours a slightly hazy golden, minimal white head. Nose is faint hops, mostly malt. I consider this more of a West Coast IPA. A nice amount of malt body and hoppy bitterness, not dry hopped into oblivion like most IPAs nowadays. It's nice to see people still boil their hops . Hop flavor is mild and enjoyable, not a palate wrecker. Unusually creamy mouthfeel. Very enjoyable IPA.

CANNED: 03/12/18

Lightly hazed gold with a massive, persistent head of dense foam. Floral, slightly spicy hop aromas upfront...orange, pear, honeydew, light pine sap. Oily hop, fruity juice flavor - less tropical and more orchard fruit. Creamy melon, lime, cherry blossom, light grass. Silky smooth, fluffy feel. Not my favorite hop character, but an interesting blend of flavors for sure.

Soft candy like fruity hopping with a more West Coast IPA sensibility. Orange and lime with softer pine hop aromas and flavors dominate but the malt base is solid and provides excellent support to the hopping. Dry finish yet satisfying. Good effort here by WW with a very drinkable IPA.
