Poured from the can into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Extremely pale amber in color, with an extreme almost thin clarity and crystal appearance. The beer looks nearly see-thru one could say. Head is a classic IPA rich and thick top with three fingers of bleach white head, but with fine soapy retention and a good dissolve. Leaves some pill lacing, a thick collar, and a pocked up top while settling.

Hop aroma forward for sure, but quite stinky in a way. Hits of soft pine and almost bee pollen like florality that is large. Hits with and earth juicy angle that is very green bordering on vegetative, but pleasant and solid.

Palate hits relatively nicely. Clean and very light bodied but with a decent almost honey like malt backbone for depth. Hop angle has much of that bees-wax like flavor not terribly (is that a thing??), but there's a nice juicy earth and pine herbality that snaps with an almost peppery bitterness and punch. The finish is a real excellent controlled hop heat, long since I have experience that on any IPA in some time. It hits with a peppery but not bitter control, with some touches of light herbal sweetness as well.

Interesting realm in the 355 series. Different Amarillo angle than I am used to. Still makes a solid IPA worth finishing.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Pours gold with a little chill haze, nice white head, pretty good retention,
Smells like a citrus salad: orange, grapefruit, some tangerine
Old school IPA taste: tangerine and grapefruit peel, just enough malt to keep it in balance, crisp bitterness, but not overpowering
Light and drinkable
The best beer I've had from 7 Locks
