Poured from 16oz can into 20oz Sauvin Glass. Canned on 12/19/17.

Look: Pours burnt yellow, light amber in color. Medium opacity, with frothy 1" white head. Loads of lacing on the glass.

Smell: Citrus fruits upfront, with orange, lemon, tangerine, pineapple being dominant. Subtle hints of floral aromas in the background. Hops and pine are on the nose as well.

Taste: Follows the nose for the most part. Orange, pineapple and lemon dominant at first. Hoppy, piney flavors on back end. Fair amount of bitterness to the beer, which I didn't pick up on in the smell. The hop profile quickly overrides the "juicy" aspect of the beer, with the bitterness being dominant. Acidity in check, with no astringent flavors.

Feel: Medium bodied, with medium carbonation. Not a real "juicy" feel, but it an an enjoyable feel nonetheless.

Overall: This is my first offering from Lamplighter Brewing, and I am glad I was able to try it. The hop presence was a nice surprise, which coupled bitterness well with the hazy appeal. I do wish it was more "juicy," in which I feel for this style the bitterness could be toned down a bit, but it is a good beer. Cheers!

I have to admit, I'm not a "Juice Bomb" "Dank" guy, this was a pleasant drink, hops character truer to an older style IPA.

Pounder can into a tulip appears hazy copper with a white fluffy head.

Aroma of citrus, hop pellet dust and a little weedy/pine-like.

Taste is bitter with citrus zest, grapefruit mostly and a little pine before getting grainy sweet and a touch buttery.

Medium in body, modestly carbonated and pretty nice despite being an old can.
