From a 16oz. can purchased at the beer store.

I don't know how to reduce my cell phone photos to the size this website requires, but this label is pretty boring. Trust me. Terrible packaging.

The beer is at least a little more interesting. Aroma is very floral, with undertones of citrus. The flavor is very sweet, malty and tropical but not in a "hazy NE" kind of way, transitioning to astringent bitterness. Mouthfeel is fairly thin. There's a very earthy, herbal aftertaste. Label says "Centennial fresh hops from CLS farms." They're in Yakima, so I'd expect this was a decent year for the hops overall, but maybe a little dry? The "dirt" aftertaste is just enough to throw it off. Bale Breaker is also using Yakima hops and didn't have this odd aftertaste. Moldy wort? Beats me. I'll finish it, but I wouldn't go out of my way to try it again.

16oz can (dated 9/3/20) poured into 14oz teku. Poured a fully murky medium yellow color with an inch of white head that had very good retention and lacing.

Lots of bright hops in the nose, and just a hint of grain.

Same on the tongue, just bolder and brighter.

The body was light, smooth, and had a dry finish.

Drinkability was very good, as it always is with this series.

Overall, another fine fresh hop from Wander, get it while you can.
