L: Drinking from the can.

S: Hoppy malts. Citrusy and tropical.

T: Fruity on the front and hoppy in the back. Interesting malt character unlike anything I've tasted.

F: Resiny finish. The hop's oil is a big indicator of quality to me, and this is far above average, (but not maxed out.)

O: There's plenty of sweet hazy action to counterbalance the hop's bitterness. It's mellow and approachable.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 12 fl oz can on June 28, 2019. Brewed with pilsen malt, flaked oats and wheat. Hopped with Mosaic and El Dorado. Tropical fruit notes with a hint of peach.

12oz can. Poured out a cloudy, pale, straw-yellow color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled of melon, pear and pineapple. Sweet fruity taste with a sharp bitterness and sweet caramel finish.

Poured from a can dated 5/8/19 into a pint glass. One of the haziest beers I've seen in awhile, pours to a pencil thin head. Based on looks alone, I'm not encouraged, looks a little flat. Smell, however is a big positive - crisp and rich with floral and orange and lemon citrus. Taste is well above average - the orange comes through with some sweetness and a little pine. Finish is a quick bitterness. I'd drink this again.

Pours a very hazed gold with one finger of pearl colored head. Pretty good head retention & lacing

S: Orange peels, a little pineapple, fades a bit down the stretch

T: Sweet orange with a little dryness, a touch of white grape & green melon as well. A little mango sneaks in, along with a little sour & sweet orange, plus dryness, plus a bit of pink grapefruit as this warms. Finishes with a little sour orange & grapefruit, plus some green melon

MF: Medium body, fairly firm carbonation, lovely balance

Great drinkablity, a good take on this style, pretty pricey, almost $ 2.50 a can

Pours a very cloudy yellow color with a thin foamy head. Head retention is mild. Lacing is good. Juicy citrus aroma. Orange and grapefruit. Juicy grapefruit taste. Mild piney resin with a larger amount of bitterness at the end than expected. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

CAN:

Brewed with Pilsen malt, flaked oats, wheat, and Mosaic & El Dorado hops.

6.8% ABV. 70 IBU.

Soft wheat. Juice. Citrus. I'm getting Mosaic's tropical hop flavour, but not it's more interesting signature blueberry note. Pilsner malt. Clean 2-row.

Balanced but not horribly well executed given the lack of a standout hop profile; this doesn't utilize Mosaic to its fullest extent and doesn't bring much to the table in terms of hop pungency.

Refreshing and enjoyable but not a beer I'd knowingly buy again.

Pilsner malt, flaked oats and wheat, combined with Mosaic and El Dorado hops, according to the label. Handsome brew, decent hoppy aroma. The fruitiness of these particular hops doesn't quite come through as expected, but the flavor is still good if a bit more bitter than usual for the style. Better mouthfeel than the other beers in the Deadhead series.
