Hmm, after reading some of the reviews I have to wonder if I'm reviewing the same beer. Pours a hazy, golden yellow with a decent head that dissipates rather quickly. Aroma is light, citrusy. Taste starts citrusy, and then rolls back along the tongue to a pleasant hop bitterness. I also perceived a bit of celery in the initial flavor. Has a nice smooth, creamy mouthfeel. It's an enjoyable beer, refreshing on a hot summer evening.

Lord Hobo's Steal This Can is the rare juicy beer that really excites me. Its pineapple and papaya flavors overlay a dry, hoppy, almost piny taste that don't leave the mouth feeling too sweet or too sour. Its a refreshing beer that can also pair well with more savory flavors. They're onto something with this one.

Decanted from a 16 oz (473 ml) can into a conical pint glass; canned on 12/20/17, obtained cold at the brewery and refrigerated until consumed.
A: Pours a very hazy, bright, orange tinged golden color with a half inch, foamy chiffon colored head, decent, if spotty retention, but rings and rings of fine Belgian lacing. Methode champenoise quality bubbles evident.
S: Aromas of white grapefruit, peach, melon, and orange with a very spicy note.
T: Flavor leans more to apricot and peach, pineapple, with less citrus. Light roast malt backbone evident, but remains dry. Cracked grain flavor waxes as it warms. Bitterness solid and imparts crispness.
M: Light to medium bodied with strongly persistent, if light, effervescence. Crisp and refreshing.
O: A very light bodied, refreshing, drinkable American IPA. Think of it as an entry level NEIPA for your friend who are challenged by the style. Probably wise not the actual try stealing it.

Pours a hazy yellow from pint can that I picked up at local bottle shop. Smell is resin and piney. Taste is a little better but nothing spectacular. Easy to drink if you like IPAs. Lacking a little in flavor. Very bitter don't think I will seek this out.

Canned 5/15/17. Nice hazy apricot color with a creamy head of 1/2 finger.

Strong aromas of cat piss, more cat piss, slight fruitiness behind that.

Flavor is of durian fruit, persimmon, onion, sweat, pine, garbage, and diesel.

Feel is semi-creamy, semi-resiny. Moderately carbonated.

Overall, probably due to the age, but this beer was one of the worst IPA's I've ever laid lips to. Reminds me of "Sorta IPA" from Minhas. It's probably titled "Steal this Can" because it's too awful to pay for it. Sorry I'm so critical.

A perfect " I just got home from work and need a beer" IPA. Nothing that will take you by surprise or anything, you may finish drinking it without noticing you just downed a pint ( or is that just me). But I'm glad I have more. Super refreshing.
