16 oz. can. Hazy yellowish orange. Smells of zesty citrus, lemon, some fruitiness, and oats. Taste is more heavily tropical fruit than citrus, but both are prevalent. Tangerine and lime take over and push out the tropical fruit. A touch of grain, but a long oaty finish with a bit of tingly citrus and pine bitterness. Light body and amazingly drinkable. Excellent.

A: Pours a very lightly hazy pale yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and moderate lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall foamy white head that reduces to a large patch of thin film covering the entire surface of the beer with a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of dank resinous, tropical/passionfruit, and tropical/guava hops over light aromas of slightly sweet grainy malts.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of slightly sweet grainy malts. That is followed by slightly stronger than moderate flavors of dank resinous, tropical/passionfruit, and tropical/guava hops which impart a moderate amount of bitterness which does not linger for too long.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly crisp.

O: Very enjoyable - super easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and really nice dank resinous hop flavors + aromas. Definitely one that I could easily have a couple of and I would definitely enjoy again. As always, a very well constructed session IPA that really highlights the specific hop varietal used.

Canned 10/3/16

Pours a pale golden orange, hazy turbid look with a compact layer of white foam and spotty lacing.
Aromas of guava and passionfruit, tropical and fresh, fairly dank.
Taste is lightly resiny and moderately bitter with passionfruit and citrus peel notes.
Light bodied, very lean. Sessionable sure, but a touch more body wouldn't hurt.

Overall I really enjoyed this, it was a nice introduction to Burial. Thanks Wil!

Can stamped 10/03/16

Solidly hazy yellow color with a minimal frothy covering. Smell is zesty, fruity hops...grape, grapefruit, and some passion fruit. Citrusy, slightly resinous hoppy flavor - not as fruity as expected. Tangerine, apricot, and grass. Light, crisp, and dry. Not as good as Amarillo was at first, but as it warms a tasty oily herbal dankness emerges. Very hoppy and bitter. Always worth grabbing a can of the latest Ceremonial.
