From the 16 oz. can dated Oct 30, 2018 (Season Three). Sampled on November 14, 2018.

It pours an opaque, milky looking yellow with a lacing-leaving foamy white head.

The aroma emits a vibrant sensation of tropical fruit, bright herbs, citrus, and an underlying white bread malt note.

The mouthfeel is medium to bold and it feels smooth yet chewy.

In the taste, the sweet and fruity characters explode on the palate overtaking any bitterness that might have come up on the backside. Yet, that might be why I liked it because the bitterness was not too forward. Mild to moderate dryness at the end.

Can dated 10/1/18 into pint glass. Pours a hazy amber with a sticky, off-white head. Initial impression is citrus (grapefruit, pineapple, lemon, maybe a little mango), with a bit of pine resin and a slight caramel backbone. Mouthfeel is medium; carbonation is a little prickly but enhances rather than detracts. Finish is smooth and not at all bitter. A decent but unremarkable IPA.

16oz can dated 9/30/18, "Season 3".

Pours cloudy straw-gold with a moderate head and minimal retention. Candied tropicals in the nose with peach, melon, and grapefruit. Medium bodied with a creamy, soft mouthfeel. Sugar-dusted peach, with pineapple and tangerine on the palate. Zero malt with a minimal bitterness. Finishes fairly dry with lingering citrus.

Nice beer but there are better options out there to this $5.00 single.
