16 oz can dated 1/3/2019

Classic hop combo. Nice juicy fruit notes up front with a drying bitterness on the back end. Really nice stuff.

As always, this is a beer I was involved in brewing. Grain of salt.

Solace/Meridian Pint Cheat Day IPA - 7%. Pilsner malt, wheat, and oats. No kettle hops. Lots of Simcoe, Citra, and Mosaic including some cyro hops.

Appearance: Hazed out pale orange. Nice head retention and lacing.

Aroma: Big and bright. Tangerine, pineapple, blueberry. Very minimal malt intrusion.

Flavor: Fairly dry, but still quite juicy thanks to low bitterness and big late hop additions. Lots of orange citrus, berry, tropical fruit, floral notes, and only moderately bitter.

Mouthfeel: Feel is big for a 7% pilsner malt based IPA. Oats and wheat do their part.

From a week-old can, pours a moderately hazy bright orange. Two fingers of white foam leaves sheets of lacing. Smell and taste show the Citra, Mosaic and Simcoe well. Lots of tangerine and blueberry notes. Smooth and soft feel. One of the better IPAs I've had in a while. Upgraded my rating because the cans were even better at about the 10-day mark.
