12oz can packaged about a month ago.
Look: pours a pale amber with a nice full white head (1/2" thick) with above average retention. the beer is just a bit cloudy or hazy (not in a NEIPA way) . slight lacing was observed.
Smell: fresh cut hay, grassy, resiny hops. hints of papaya and spice (pepper maybe)
Taste: medium malt sweetness and in your face bold bitterness that overwhelms palate. hop flavors abound here, but bittering hops are the showcase here.
Feel: Medium to medium full body, moderate carbonation and rich, resiny texture. pronounced astringency. finishes long and bitter bordering on the harsh (just slightly) with a slight alcohol warmth.
Overall: drinks more like a DIPA. I expect IPAs to be more balanced than this. this one is for hop heads mostly. nothing terrible and I can still enjoy it. in a blind test I'd guess it was a DIPA for sure.

On tap the House of Brews. A little hazy, orange body. Smells of sweet melon, garlic, and pine. Taste follows in different proportions. The melon is more muted and less sweet. Pine and garlic blend into a hefty bitterness. Some lightly sweet malt. Medium body. Well made IPA.

Draft pint at the Sailfish brewery inFt Pierce Florida. Mosaic hop aroma. Mosaic plus bittering hop flavor. Goes down mighty easy for a 7%er. Medium mouth. Overall just a nice quaff.

Undated can inrto pint glass. Pours a nice deep amber - slightly hazy; fluffy white head. Initial impression is grapefruit, lemon, pine, and a touch of caramel malts. Mouthfeel is medium, as is carbonation. Fibnish is slightly dry with a lingering bitterness. Good but not outstanding.

I’m gong 4 as an overall rating because the sum of the parts is greater than seoetate. Typical hop forward for the style. Decent lacing. Bitter beginning which morphs to a decently smooth finish. Grapefruit is predominant. Notes of pine. Medium body overall. Very good IPA.
