I bought a can of this beer at Andersons in Reynoldsburg, OH. It poured a hazy yellow with thin white head that is leaving a very nice lace. The scent is sweet in nature with a bitter hop. The taste is a mix of lemon bitter hop with sweet malt and alcohol. The Mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall it's ok....averge at best for ipas.

On draft at Maple Wod in Cincinatti, OH.

Hazy, light orange body with a thick, soapy white head. Aromas of bitter pine, grapefruit zest. Hop forward with bitter citrus peel, finishing dry. Solid.

Thanks Kegatron for gifting me with this. Can into snifter appears a pale clear golden yellow with a white cap. The cap fades leaving spotty lace.

Aroma is solvent with alcohol, slightly fruity with hints of herbs/pine and grainy sweetness.

Taste is lightly herbal, fruity to slight pulpy bitterness and somewhat vegetal to solvent. Light grain sweetness and hints of butter.

Light body, modest carbonation. Almost feels more like an amped up pils moreso than ipa.

Nice clarity. Nice bite. Nice hop influence. Pine and what seems like a touch of lemon. Nice stuff. Nice, nice, nice. I will search for better descriptors for the next beer.

Can shared by Curran last night, thanks man.

Pours a dirty earthy orange, with a half inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells fairly citrusy, with some lemon zest and pine leading the way.

This tastes fairly good, but it's got a fairly watery middle, that leaves the flavors falling a bit flat. There's something missing. The notes of pine, citrus, grass, and a bit of caramel malt do taste good, they just don't pop like I know they should.

The body on this one is light, with a crisp but slightly watery mouthfeel, as mentioned above. There is a moderate amount of carbonation.

This falls just a bit short, some tweaks and it would be excellent.

The beer pours out in a light clear yellow color with a hint of orange in there. It pours out with a 2-3 finger rocky head with some sticking on the glass.

The aroma is killer. Tons of big sweet tropical and citrus fruit. You get mango, pineapple, and just tons and tons of sweet sweet tangerine, peach, orange. There’s a bit of sweet caramel malt in the back too, but it’s mostly that big fruity aroma.

The flavor hits your tongue first some bitterness, then there’s tons of roundy fruity flavors. You get that citrus and mango and tropical. Then the beer hits you hard with that really strong dry, grapefruit pith bitterness. It’s quite strong, but refreshing as well. That truly is the highlight of the beer. It pops up on you and is so refreshing.

There’s a good balance with this beer because of the bready malt in the middle, but it’s not overly sweet and balances quite well with the hops, while still being a hugely hop bomb.

Unfortunately there’s no date on this beautiful lime green can, but it sure tasted fresh.

This was a pleasantly amazing surprise for an extra from a beer trade. Wow, this stuff is killer. For context, I would say this pushes towards more than clean hop, but sweet malty IPA. This is definitely less sweet and more of that strong longing bitterness than 60 Minute. I would actually say it’s just a better made version of that beer.
