From a 12 ounce can picked up last week in Denver. Fresh batch that had arrived last week although I noticed these guys are doing the "Best by" labeling. Dafuq?

Hazy swag. Looks like pear juice.

Aroma is a blend of pungent mango, papaya and pineapple and tart strawberries or blueberries. Interesting.

When I first drank a few cans of this last week in Denver I remember the flavor being grapefruit heavy but I was high as a bat so couldn't quite trust my tastebuds. It does have that grapefruit zest and pith so I wasn't completely out of my gourd. However, there's an unripe mango flavor that should not go unnoticed here as it is satisfying. A light passionfruit sweetness complements.

I've gotta give it up to the drinkability of this. Easy-drinking and juicy means I'm drinking it way too quickly. Zestiness, prickly mouthfeel and a dry finish round this beer out well.

Success.

This is a CANtinuation of New CANned Beer Through Tavour Sunday (Week 693), brought to you by The CANQuest (tm)!

From the CAN: "Codename: Superfan is a deliciously modern take on the American IPA style, brewed with a variety of juicy American hops from the Pacific Northwest."; "Unfiltered. Haze is expected. Drink fresh."

Understand, my beef with the current hazebro trend is NOT the haziness, per se. I have always advocated for less filtration since more strips away flavor, but when you have to artificially create haze through the use of lactose, I draw the line! For one thing, it really sets off my GIRD in an unpleasant way.

Since they copped to an inherent haze on the label, I CANducted some in-CAN agitation before Crack!ing open the vent. My next move was an inverted Glug since this is a no-holds-barred situation. It puffed up with an impressive two fingers of dense, foamy, rocky, bone-white head that suddenly exhaled & fell, leaving loads of lacing behind. Color was a deeply-hazy/lightly-cloudy Yellow-Gold (SRM = 4 -5). Nose had both a grapefruit citrusiness and a tropical fruitiness. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. Mouthfeel was medium. The taste was very bitter, with tastes of grapefruit juice, rind, pith & seeds along with an earthy maltiness that was slightly cut by a sweet tropical fruitiness, but only slightly. This might not be everybody's cuppa, but for this self-described, self-avowed hophead, it was just the sort of thing that I crave. I gravitated to AIPAs initially due to their high IBUs, especially in comparison to their EIPA counterparts, but now tropical fruitiness is the trendy craze & I am left cold. Mmm. The more that I drink of this, the more that I like it. Warming, the tropical fruitiness became more assertive, but it was held in check by the earthiness of the malt and the bitterness refused to budge. I CAN live with this type of commingling of tastes and I have encountered this use of both PNW & Southern Hemisphere in other recent beers, so perhaps that is the coming trend. I have nothing against tropical AIPAs, per se, but they need to be their own separate style. No bitterness = no Bueno, IMHO. Finish on this one was dry, bitter & just what I needed to really jump start this excursion!

L: Moderately hazy pale straw yellow color, 2 fingers of dense white head.
S: Smells of Peach, melon, citrus, and resin
T: Tastes very juicy, peach, melon, orange. Soft but strong bitterness for balance.
F: Soft mouthfeel with great carbonation. Medium bodied but feels light.
O: This is clearly one of the best CO IPAs being canned right now. Odd 13 has made tremendous strides in their test batches. It's delicious, aromatic, crushable.

12 oz can. Pours hazy yellow gold with a medium creamy white head that goes to a thin film that leaves some lacing.

The aroma is lots of piney hops and tropical fruit and a little candy caramel malt.

The flavor is sweet tropical fruit with some bready malt and decent bitterness from piney, resiny hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a very nice IPA.

So a couple friends recommended this to me and I finally got a chance to try it. First of all, the whole hazy look is trendy. So, this point might be inflammatory. But it pours like an old woman's bladder infection. My wife noticed it and said it made her nauseated just looking at it. So much for looks. Now to what counts in my books, taste. It smells very hoppy and a little citrusy. Great hop taste, another reviewer noted lack of malt and I would agree. This beer is awesome, aside from looking like a night spent in an Emergency Dept getting Fosfomycin!

Pours a very cloudy dark yellow color with a half inch head, little to no lacing.

Nice aroma, with grapefruit prominent, but lots of peach, mango melon and piney smells.

The taste pretty much followed the aroma, but the grapefruit was less forward and the peach more pronounced. Also got a bit of the oniony flavors.

Nice creamy mouthfeel, good carbonation.

Overall, really diggin this beer. Some great new IPAs coming out of CO right now, this one's up there with the best of them.

Hazy look, smell is piney, tasty dank, after taste rolls of the tongue and disappears. Great beer.
