Poured into a Duvel tulip. Bottom of can says 10/28/16.

A- Pours a hazy dark golden color with a full inch of off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of sheer surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves a thick solid ring behind.

S- Citrusy hop nose along with some cracker-like malt and a bit of dankness.

T- Nice citrus attack on the front followed by a somewhat assertive bitterness and finishes dry with the cracker-like malt found in the aroma. The Eureka has a certain spice-like quality to it. Very easy to drink but the bitterness gets to be a tad much with the lack of substantial body to back it up.

M- Thin, almost watery. Medium carbonation and a light body.

O- These are good experiments showcasing different hops but, at the end of the day, session IPAs just don't do it for me. Probably will stop buying future iterations of this series.

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 citrus/mandarin orange, citrus/grapefruit rind, pine, and tropical/peach 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 a moderate flavor of citrus/mandarin orange, citrus/grapefruit rind, pine, and tropical/peach hops. Light to moderate amounts of bitterness which fades away pretty quickly.

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

O: Very easy to drink, very sessionable, and very enjoyable. One of the better session IPAs available since the mouthfeel is not watery like some others. Definitely worth grabbing and though I have not had a lot of beers featuring the Eureka hop, I'm starting to really enjoy it.
