Notes: A wheat based session IPA with a crisp, silk malt body that balances resiny hop bitterness and boasts loads of tropical fruit flavor on the finish. Simply crushable.

Poured from a 16 oz can into a pint glass; unreadable birth date. Pours light opaquish yellow with two+ fingers of head with great lacing. Initial sweet citrus taste - orange - is closely followed by subtle grapefruit bitterness. Nice light IPA

Can 2months old. Much more PA than IPA at 4.5%. Light and largely unremarkable. Disappointed considering I liked LN after visiting brew pub last year.

A: The beer is hazy light yellow in color—too hazy to see if there is any visible carbonation. A careful pour resulted in a two finger high frothy bright white head that has good retention properties, leaving a short head covering the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of herbal and lemony hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, having flavors of herbal hops with notes of grassy and lemony hops. There is a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate to high amount of carbonation.
O: I wasn't a very big fan of this beer because it seemed to be over carbonated and the herbal hop flavors hindered its drinkability.

Pours an opaque straw with a finger of white foam. Head retention is okay. Aroma is papaya, tangerine, melondew rind and guava with hints of lactose sugar. Bready, toasty malts add a little support for the hops. Tropical fruits sweeten up the front end with lactose sweetening up the back end for an overall sugary aroma. Flavor profile is papaya, mango, tangerine, guava, and orange and lemon zest. Biscuity, bready malts add a little support for the hops. Mouth feel is medium in thickness with a light fuzziness. Overall, big aroma for such a small beer. Flavor profile provides a good dose of flavors while still remaining wholly session-able.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 16oz can.

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!

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.
