Can. Pours a mid-to-mild cloudiness. Small head dies off. Aroma is some sweet hops and a bit of onion. Some marmalade. Flavor is sweet and hoppy but there is a lingering burn of alcohol. I just think the booze could be hidden a bit better. It isn't searing but it's a little too apparent. Aside form that it's a pretty ho-hum offering. I bet I would have liked this more 5-7 years ago.

Hazy gold with a nice head, notes of melons, papaya, mango, pineapple, grapefruit, orange citrus, lime, lemon, peach, berry, mild hint of malt, with floral earthy herbal dank pine. Medium bodied, smooth. Really nice Citra hopped DIPA.
