Tall can w/ 8/24/17 stamped on the bottom, $11.99 for a 4 pack at Bay Shore Beer and soda

Pours with a moderate haze, typical almond amber, lifts a sturdy, large and lasting light khaki cap....then leaves quality looking and coating sheeting all up and down the glass. Fine looking brew.

Pungent sniff with melon, cat piss, hop resins and scallions coming to mind.

On the palate, its citric, resiny and dry....tasty and flavorful brew from DUBCO...nice to enjoy a fresh and highly enjoyable IPA from super local to me during the summer, Destination Unknown

Poured from a 16oz can into a speiglau IPA glass.

Looks is a hazy amber with a thin white head.

Aroma is slightly mango with maybe a hint of fruity bubble gum.

Taste is a lot of those tropical fruits like mango and passion fruit with a slight bubble gum and a bitter lemon at the end.

Pours light Amber, slight cloudy. Thick, foamy, Whitehead that last a short time with light lacing.

Smells bready malt, strong grapefruit, Citrus, light floral and dank.

Tastes citrus right off start, juicy with a light bready malt and a hint of pale malt. Next it gets more bitter with citrus peel and light Pine. Finish is dry with a long citrus peel linger that is light bitter. Medium body and creamy medium carbonation.

Pretty tasty apa. I would take this any day over any other apa I've had.

L: Yellow/orange, lightly hazy, nice lace, little head retention
S: Sweet aroma, candied citrus, honey, toast, floral
T: Sweet up front, get the floral and citrus here. Other fruit in there as well but hard to pin down. Finishes pretty dry and bitter, more earthy toward the end, somewhat piney.
F: Light, maybe even a tad thin. Carbonation is medium. Very refreshing albeit dry
O: Good pale overall.

Pours a medium Amber with an inch and a half head that dissipated pretty quickly to a quarter inch ring and left many rings of lacing. Smell is on the sweet side with notes of honey, citrus, onion and bread malts. Tastes of grapefruit, orange peel, honey, onion. Floral notes pepper and resin. Very dry and bitter finish, light to medium bodied, lightly carbonated and a slightly watery mouth feel.

A light amber pour with big time clarity and good carbonation. The nose is very floral with hops and fruit. On the very first sip I get a huge hop punch right upfront with a smooth and mellow flow that finishes smooth and clean. The mosaic is very concentrated and really dominates the brew. Lush fruit notes of melon, peach, mango, grapefruit, lemon, and lime. The mouth feel is on the lighter side with really not much body at all. Crisp, easy drinking, and super hoppy flavor that sticks and lingers.

Overall, one of the better session ipa's I have had.
