16 ounce can into a Sam Adams glass. Hazy body with a bright white head. The scent is the best part of this beer for me though the flavor is very enjoyable. Pineapple is the most forward flavor. Hops are solid, mostly living in the finish, which is kind of a damp finish as opposed to a dry, crisp one. It's a juicy IPA. It was a pricy can at $7 for the single but I was happy to try it.

A: The beer is very hazy yellow in color. It poured with a finger high white head that died down, leaving a short head covering the surface and lots of lacing running down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of peaches are present in the nose along with notes of orange citrus and pineapples.
T: The taste has flavors of peaches and mangos along with hints of pineapples. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little smooth and airy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA has an unusually light and airy mouthfeel, making it feels like oats were used as part of the ingredients.

Serving type: can

On tap at Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a super hazy and murky orange color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like pure and raw hops and lupulin burn, with vegetal pine, and some light juiciness.

I think this needs a bit of time to settle down, as it kind of just burns and feels muddled, with the vegetal bitterness overpowering any interesting juiciness there could be.

This is medium bodied, crisp and well carbonated, but a bit hard to drink due to the problems expanded on above.

This is not the best from these guys so far- I think it needs 2-3 weeks to calm down.

Smell isn’t too pungent, but has notes of fruit. Juicy but not too sweet. Very smooth and good mouthfeel. Tasty ipa for sure.

Pours a turbid yellow to peach color with a thin white head. Nose is fresh and bright. Grapefruit, pineapple and praches will mild grassy notes. Taste is a very pleasant blend of juicy citrus, pith and rind. Notes of grapefruit and sweet pineapple. Light grassy notes with a touch of pine and doughy malt. Medium to full body with a touch of creaminess. Hoppy finish with low level bitterness.

Look: Dark golden honey-like color. Generous amounts of head and residual lacing. Unfiltered appearance with murky complexion.
Smell: Minimal notes of some orange and grapefruit with some malts and stone fruit. Really not much regarding the smell.
Taste: Flavors of guava, mango and passionfruit, with some peach, apricot, orange and grapefruit. Also has a bready taste as well. Very nice tasting.
Feel: Medium in body and somewhat medium-thick on the weight. Low carbonation, giving a soft feel. Slight bitter presence on the tongue. Smooth and easy to drink. Somewhat gritty feel as well which I enjoy.
Overall: This is a tasty brew. I like the way the flavors work together. I like the meaty feel to the beer, with a nice fruit and bread like flavor. It is enjoyable and worth a try. I am grateful to have tried this beer. Cheers!

Sandy dark orange-yellow with a large, yellowsnow foam clinging in very thick ridges.

Smell is dank and spicy cannabis with peach, orange and peppery biscuit.

Taste is passionfruit and orange with biscuit, peach, spicy cannabis and lesser pine.

The tangy medium-light body has a thin fine carbonation, finishing semi-dry.
