Solid beer, sort of a weird flat aftertaste, but light and refreshing

Thanks goes out to larryi86 for this brew.

16 oz. Can
Canned On: 05/14/18

My first from this brewery.

Poured into a Tree House glass a pretty nice hazy yellow color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger off-white head, which leaves some pretty nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with a nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, slight grapefruit, lemon), slight diesel like. The taste is hoppy, malty, with a nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, slight grapefruit, lemon), slight diesel like, Medium body, ABV is hidden very well, with a nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, a pretty tasty brew, nice thirst quencher. Glad to have gotten a chance to try it. Orange Julius! Addictive! Milkshake!. Thanks Larry!

L - 1.5 finger sparse white head atop a vibrant yellow body.

S - wheat, oranges, pine.

T - follows the nose. Tons of wheat, with a lemony glaze. Some orange and lime. Moderate bitterness. No sweetness. No booziness.

F - medium-light body with moderate carb.

O - great for a sweltering day.

Dated 5/24/18 on the bottom of the can, just under 5 weeks since brewing.

Pours a mostly hazy yellow-honey in the the glass with a finger + half of thin rocky head that dissipated quickly. Nose starts off with a sweet indistinct citrus that moves in to apricot, ever so slight guava, slight grapefruit pith, wheat and a chemically lemon, almost like pine-sol. Taste is all fruit but nothing really to pin down, I get that pine-sol, a whisper of pineapple, resin that doesn't really fit in to the pine profile and wheat that is more on the burnt side. No lacing left on the glass. Mouthfeel is light, but it's knocking on the door of a medium body for a 4.8% ABV session. Medium-low sweetness, drying and bitterness. I'm getting a charcoal-esque vibe in the aftertaste mixed with the wheat and it's really throwing me off. It's not bad, but with the notes I'm getting, I'm really not digging this brew.

A: Poured from the can into a Piraat tulip/snifter-type glass. Body is hazy honey-golden with a half-finger white head on top. Leaves behind some lacing.

S: Smells like Galaxy hops. If you've ever had Glorious by Lord Hobo (which my wife likes a lot, and so I have it on hand regularly), then you'll know that smell. Here, I get some grainy malt foundation, then modest pineapple, pithy grapefruit, and some piney resin.

T: I like this taste profile - modest husky grain, then dank, resiny pine, which is followed by a touch of white grape skins and a nice lemony bitterness. Finishes with a quite dry bitterness. More of an "old school" IPA than a NE IPA in its bitterness (rather than juiciness).

M: Call it medium in heft, carbonation is fine but active.

O: Very good. I like this kind of IPA and I like this hop.

Slightly hazy pale golden color, off white head. Slight whiff of pine and citrus. Flavor is the same, subtle and clean tasting but lost behind the bitterness. Feel is crisp and moderate to high bitterness

Poured from a tallboy can into a Fiddlehead Teku

L: Hazy light golden pour with massive fluffy white head. Great retention and lacing.

S: Grapefruit and resinous pine... grainy.

T/F: Follows the nose. Strong grain presence... possibly enhanced by the wheat. Bitter grapefruit and citrus rind... pine, resinous, and nice bitterness. Mild tropicals but in the background. Light bodied... zesty carbonation.

O: Big flavor for a session IPA. Nice grapefruit and bitterness... the wheat added a bit of a grain dimension that I thought detracted a little bit. Overall nicely done though... a beer you can drink all day with lots of flavor.
