A 12oz. pour from a sixtel kegged and purchased at the brewery on 02/08/19. As fresh as it gets!

Look- Pours a radiant golden/yellow churning up two fingers of creamy white foam. It ever so slowly settles and thick lacing is present as I sip this juicy nectar.

Smell- Mango, passion/stone fruits, orange zest and a hint of yeast.

Taste- Passion/stone fruits, mango, grapefruit, pineapple and some herbaceous floral in the finish.

Feel- Creamy smooth up front yielding to a slight acidity in the finish.

Overall- A top notch hazebro brewed by the people at Odd 13. I could only dream about purchasing a keg of something this special back in the midwest. A super fair price of $95 a sixtel. This is worth your while.

The can have a gnarly alien on the label. Served the beer in a pint glass around 47 degrees. A medium pour produced a two finger head with great retention. The head is a rocky, foamy, and frothy leaving lacing on the glass. The color of the beer is SRM 6 a pale gold color with yellow hues. The clarity of the beer is hazy.

The aromas of the beer are tropical, pine, resin, grapefruit, and biscuit.

The flavors of the beer is tropical, pine, resin, grapefruit, and resin.

The mouthfeel of the beer is crisp and clean.

The body of the beer is medium, medium carbonation, and a medium finish.

The beer is standard IPA nothing to fancy.

A thanks to the captain of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a hazy, golden/orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of tropical fruits. Taste is juicy, lots of tropical fruits, moderate bitterness. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall is an enjoyable beer.

This is another of my Tavour boxes to further The CANQuest (tm)! I find that I am not buying many bottles from them, but I am trying to snap up the CANs as they become available. I really like the opportunity to get so many CANs from the Rockies and the West Coast.

From the CAN: "I-P-Alien is an India Pale Ale featuring a variety of space-themed hops. Apollo, Comet, and Galaxy all play a role. Very low bitterness and massive dry hopping combine to create an incredibly juicy IPA."

I Crack!ed the vent & began a slow, gentle Glug, but to no avail. Everything that was emanating from the CAN had a haziness to it to the point that I gave up & deCANted it all into the awaiting glass. Color was a deeply-hazy/lightly-cloudy Yellow-Gold (SRM = 4 - 5). An in-glass swirl raised just under three fingers of foamy, rocky, bone-white head with moderate retention that left nice lacing in its wake. Nose was filled with tropical fruit - mango, papaya, guava and even pineapple. Mmm. Mouthfeel was medium-to-full, not quite creamy, but definitely big for the style. The taste was also very tropical fruity, but the bitterness was almost non-existent. This CANtinues to disappoint me about these hazebro NE IPAs - fruity with little to no bitterness is NOT my idea of an AIPA! I keep saying that these NEIPAs need to be broken out into their own separate style because until then, if I am rating to style & not to taste, then they are going to be found to be lacking. Finish was semi-sweet and I got a light lemony grassiness that lingered, but not enough to Wow! me the way that it has for others. Sorry.

12oz can served in a tulip. Canned on 2/12/18.

Pours hazy yellow golden with a big head and lots of carbonation. Smell is hop resin.

Taste is hop resin, soft fruity notes, something makes me think of papaya. Definite creaminess.

Mouthfeel is creamy / fluffy. Overall, nice beer.

OK, a solid IPA from Odd13, but there's something in the nose/aroma that throws me off; could be the hop mix effect but I swear I get a little sweaty feet on the nose. Everything else is as you'd expect, which is very good to great. But that aroma... haunting. Better not inhale. ;)

Can dated 02/12/18 into a tulip glass.

L: Pours hazy golden bronze with 1 finger of medium density white head with moderate retention and left mixed ringed lacing.

S: Nose is very tropical, lots of mango, pineapple, and plenty of grassiness. Perhaps some subtle floral undertones. It's interesting but different.

T: Follows the nose fairly well, finishes with some bitterness and medium astringency, astringency lingers.

F: Medium-high bodied, medium-high carbonation, full and light on the tongue but with some burn from carbonation and astringency.

O: It's a beer that I enjoyed, but not something I'd be raving about to friends nor seeking out specifically.

Initial impression from a can:

Remarkably soft, but the hop profile - while juicy - is disinteresting and lacks pungency.
