Neat beer although I'm usually not a fan of collabs. No canning date either.

Pours a nice fluffy creamy 1 finger head that fades at a med pace, nice soapy lacing, somewhat hazy lemony yellow color.

Nose fair hop profile, some dankness, a little citrus lemony fruity and mild floral, a hint of dank tropical, a bit grassy, mostly on the lighter side, with little to no malt either.

Taste brings some bitter hops, straight up hop flavor like basic hops without real category, grassy a little spicy herbal, also some dankness and mild fruity a little tangy, mild creamy malt base, hops get more herbal spicy and even chewy briny on the back end. Finish is dry quite bitter.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, decent carb.

Overall meh, nothing special, just like some random hops thrown into a basic golden ale or something, nothing really going on with this one. I'd give them a C- for effort on this one, it's like they really didn't try to make anything stand out or exciting.

Poured from a recently released can into the test glass,
A - I really like the clarity, gently carbonated, a quick to dissipate head leaves a thin ring as evidence.
S - Pine, spruce, grapefruit, sweet malts.
T - Follows the nose, nice conifer flavors, with less of the tropical elements on the palate
M - Medium in body, sharp, with a lot of edges from bitterness on full display.
O - A nice dry sharp IPA with lots of flavor.
