Poured from a crowler into an oversized tulip.

Copper color indicates a considerable malt presence. Lacing and head are fine.

Smells of tangy citrus, but lacks a hop pop and depth. This carries on to the taste, which is one-dimensional and takes its sweet time to make an entrance. The front of the tongue seems to get no flavor at all.

The feel approaches full-bodied but there's a spritzy carbonation here.

Not bad, but didn't wow me in anyway.

Pours orange with a foamy white head. Aroma Aroma caramely malts, toffee, pine and resin. Taste is smooth, sweetish and malty with some caramely notes. Finish is smooth, sweetish and malty. Okay.

Complex big ipa with lots of carbonation. Grapefruit and orange hop flavours. On tap at the source. This will be their first can. Ordinary looks and mild aroma.

An aggressively sweet and bitter combo here, with a sticky sweet nose. It's obviously going after that tropical fruit vibe that's so du jour these days, but I don't think it quite nails it. It needs to dry out a bit.

Poured from 32-ounce crowler into Riedel stemless chardonnay glass. Appearance Is stunning. Hazy light copper color, voluminous white head, tons of lacing. Nice burst of pine upon opening the can. Aromas and flavors of bready malt, pine resin, citrus zest, and bubble gum. Dry finish, with lots of lingerimg bitterness. Delicious and drinkable, very well done.

Received in a trade...new 32oz can! The can gives you the message that it needs to be drunk now...don't wait!! Wow that wonderful smell hits you when you pop the top. Taste is grapefruit all the way with a great mouthfeel. Excellent trade!
