Can from Tfontana, thanks for the opportunity!
Mostly clear deep gold in color with a good sized frothy white head that persists. They are calling this dank but I'm getting more citrus and pith than anything. Light sweet bread to counter. Not bad.

3.39/5  rDev -13.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Hazy light orange in the glass with 3 fingers of uneven, soapy white lacing

The first aroma I pick up on is tangerine, along with supporting notes of resiny hops and bright pineapple

The taste is the same as the aroma but muted, the hops coming through in the end of the sip to give it some flavor

Mouthfeel is really soft and carried by considerable carbonation

While the flavor is not exceptional, the feel helps it go down easy, unoffensive and a bit boring, but still not bad

Finely bubbled head like soapy water... not pleasing. Its kind of boring. Its juicy but still a tiny bit bitter dry at the end (which is nice). However there isnt much flavor. Im not getting any discernible hop notes. Its a bit soapy feeling. Its not offensive but it is lacking in flavor and leaves much to be desired.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Canned on 8/21/19

Pours a hazy bright yellow-orange topped with a cascading head of white foam; solid retention leaves a frothy cap and lasting levels of soapy lacing in its wake.

Aromas open with gooseberry and white grape, fading softly to grapefruit rind, waxy pine, cherry, and sweet citrus.

Taste shows a punchy grapefruit zest and pine with a continued backing of citrus, namely nectarine, pineapple, light melon; flaky malt comes in subtly on the finish.

Mouthfeel has a medium-light body with a fluffy/semi-creamy, upper-moderate carbonation laying effortlessly through the mid-palate until a dry, quenching finish; very clean, save for a minor bitterness lingering pleasantly at the back end of the swallow; low impact on the palate along with consistency throughout gives this absolutely top-tier drinkability.

Amazingly easy mouthfeel on an otherwise solid IPA; aromas and flavors are all balanced properly, but remain too understated to leave any lasting impact. A fine beer, just short of memorable.

Tall can, w/o canning date or best by info.

Nice looking NEIPA look, hazed and leaving a load of fine lacing and sheeting.

Grapefruit nose.

Bright and flavorful brew, more biting and resiny grapefruit then sweet pineapple....worth a try

Pours hazy, bright yellow in color, with 1/3 inch head. Taste is grapefruit, pine, and mango. Medium bodied, light carbonation, and bitter. Not as juicy as I was expecting. Makes for an above average, tropical ipa. Gets me interested in the brewery, but am also happy enough with just a single.

Poured from a pint can into an IPA style glass. Amber colored body and an off-white, two fingered head with decent lacing. Dry hopped with Citra, Mosiac and Idaho 7 hops, this IPA has a wonderful fruit filled aroma. The first sip reveals piney, grapefruit, and tangy apricot notes with a nice bitter finish on the tongue (28 IBU) that cleans the palate. The 7% abv is well blended. This bad boy from Bad Sons is a quality quaff!

Passion fruit, orange sherbet, nectarine, grapefruit pith and tangerine zest. Citrus all day. Very juicy. Semi dry bitterness on the finish. On the sweet side, but pleasant. Slightly clean. Real good.
