16oz can, I didn't record the canning date, but known to be fresh, poured into a J. Wakefield snifter glass. Enjoyed on 12.12.17, reviewed from Tasting Journal.
The beer pours a super hazy orange color, very turbid with a foamy white head that enjoys very good retention and yields plenty of soapy lace. The aroma is nice, tons of valencia orange juice, super citrusy with some nice tropical fruits underneath and a hint of grassy green hop leaf with just a bit of piney bitterness and a strong sweet doughy grain backbone. The flavors are great, tons of juicy hops, super citrusy and orange juice forward, light papaya and mango in there as well with some floral and grassiness that grows at it warms up with just a hint of bitterness from some pine and resin that sits atop a soft and sweet biscuit malt bill. The mouthfeel is good, coating and thick with a medium body that is very creamy and finishes with ease.
Verdict: A very nice IPA from J. Wakefield, one of the nicer hoppy beers I've tried from them. The citrus is super bright and inviting, very tropical flavor profile that makes for a nice juicy IPA.
L: Poured from a tallboy can to a pint glass. Had a yellow-orange color and an extremely cloudy consistency. There was a quarter inch of foamy, somewhat long-lasting head. Sparse lacing, though.
S: A very nice aroma of hops, malt, citrus, and some tropical fruit.
T: Tasted of a moderate amount of citrus (orange, in particular), a tinge of malt (not that noticeable), a fair shot of hops, tropical fruit (mangoes), and a hint of pine. The palate of this beer is quite sweet, but not overwhelmingly so. It's a well balanced and focused flavor. Not too hoppy or fruity.
F: A well-carbonated beer with a lively finish. Medium-bodied.
O: This is a very solidly made, drinkable IPA. Not groundbreaking, but well done nonetheless.
