16oz can purchased at PCC Natural Market in Bothell, Washington.
Canned on 7/08/19. Poured in to a pint glass.

Look- Hazy, golden straw color, modest off-white head with decent retention, spotty lacing. Light carbonation streaming as it sits.

Smell- Juicy citrus (orange, grapefruit and lemon), tropical fruit (pineapple, passion fruit and mango), dank, melon and pine, light muddled stone fruit. Light floral and spicy notes.

Taste- Much like the aroma with a solid grainy malt backbone, moderate bitterness that doesn't linger.

Feel- Medium bodied with a crisp semi-dry finish. Above average carbonation.

O- A nice local offering, but at $4 a can, I'm not sure how often I'll go back to it though.

another well done hazy from these guys, dry hoppy and bright, fruity, fresh, and distinctive. never heard of them before a recent trip to washington, now they are definitely on my radar, i have been impressed so far! this is pale straw colored beer with good carbonation and head from the can, uniform cloudiness, but still some brightness to it, it looks almost illuminated in the glass, no visible sediment at all. aroma and flavor are real fruit forward, this time green grapes, mangoes, and fresh oranges, a little bit different than the standard citra, mosaic, simcoe complexion everyone is using, but not way different, id love to know what all hops are in this mix. they did a nice job avoiding the green vegetal bite that beers this dry hoppy usually have, and like their other hazy ipa i had, the citra enigma, there is no real weight to the grain, so this drinks light for a hazy and stays dry all the way through. some grape candy and weed notes at the end, fleshy grapefruit too, and a little pop of pineapple juice as well, super summery complexion on this, smooth in feel, and real well carbonated. awesome beer overall, different enough to stand out, which is hard to do anymore in this style that every single brewery seems to be embracing. well done!

Clean and fruity. Appearance is slightly hazed amber, though it's brewed with the requisite flaked barley and wheat. Mouthfeel is quite slippery, with moderate carbonation. Aromas are mild pineapple and citrus. It's quite sweet and bitterness is modest Flavors of orange, guava, and a woody hop note. Tangerine finish is quite pleasant. From the 16 oz can purchased at the far Northwest beer store.
