On tap:

A - Medium caramel gold colored pour with a very dense layer of creamy foam resting on top.

S - Caramel malt base dominates the nose with light citrus.

T - Taste follows the nose with toasted caramel being first, foremost, and up front. Ends with a piney citrus bitterness to balance things out.

M - Medium body with light prickly carbonation.

O - Balanced old school and totally nothing wrong with that.

Pours out of the can a slightly opaque gold. An initial rough pour yields 2 fingers of head with good retention and lacing. Smells like citrus and other fruits, maybe honey? Tastes like citrus and pine with floral notes. Low carbonation so a great sipper. Aftertaste is dank and hoppy, asking for more more.

12oz can into a nonic pint glass.
L: Pours deep gold yeast-hazed honey w/a 2" firm and structurally creamy off-white head that goes rocky, excellent retention, light carbonation, randomly thick skeletal lacing.
S: Very ripe tropical fruits, caramelized malts, again fruity, bready, honey, floral, perfume aspects, earthy, at times suggestions of smokieness. Very light alcohol as the beer warms.
T: Ripe citrus, citrus rind, caramelized malts, a hint of crackery bread, honey, black tea, pine resin, berries, alcohol as the beer warms. It is moderately sweet and a little bit tart.
F: Mildly firm then pale & smooth with a med-bodied mouthfeel retaining a light crispness w/a resinous and semi-drying long finish. It is lightly grainy in the finish as well.
O: A fairly resinous and beautiful tasting American IPA with a West Coast angle. Firmly hopped and richly malted it is quite stately. It has deep and exceptional taste and feel therefore it is outstanding in it's style.

Light, very hoppy, tart. Citrusy hops, not much malt. A good West Coast-style IPA.

12oz can

Yellow, really light with the chunk. Smell is very fruity and sour. It seems like it has more malt than Foggy Geezer along with a little bit more booze. Citra hop funk, skunk, lemon Pine-Sol... tropical fruit and bubble tape - buncha cold grapefruit

Canned 3/30/21 but just received as a gift from my plumber. Thanks Ron!

L: Pours a clean gold with just a slight bit of haze. Bubbles rising despite the age. Smooth creamy head that stays. Not much lacing, but what a head!

S: Muted citrus, likely due to age.

T: Citrus up front, then drying grapefruit. Neither pop, but not bad at all.

F: Surprisingly light and clean.

O: Nothing wrong with this one, but wish I had it fresh. For an almost four month old IPA, it's really good.

Lazy Rite pours a copper color, with a small, but long lasting and lacing head. Earthy aroma, hints of hemp, and overall dank. Flavor is dank, damp, vegetable notes, and some hints of earthy. Good body and feel. Overall, dank and wet, a bit harsh, nice take, and some unique flavors.

This beer looks very nice! A 12oz. can pored into a 20 ounce weizen glass. I did an aggressive pour and ended up with four fingers of pure white foam. After several minutes I still have 2 fingers of lumpy foam with a thick lacing on the side of the glass. The carbonation is medium in this hazy, slightly orange beer.
The aroma is a strong sweet citrus.
The flavor is a sweet citrus with a little dry bite on the finish. A bit bitter.
The feel is nice, almost creamy.
A typical citrus, pine flavored IPA that finishes dry and bitter.

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a shaker pint.

Look - Slightly hazy golden amber with a strong towering white head. A very beer looking beer.

Smell - Sweet air of light citrusy hops and a tinge of sour berries. A fair bit of graininess lingers on the back end.

Taste - Unlike the pretty smell this beer has, the taste is a much dirtier bitterness. Earthy and gritty, it's like the beer tried to lure you in with the scent before smacking you in the face.

Feel - Medium bodied and lightly yet finely carbonated. Has a strange chewy creamy consistency to it.

Overall - An IPA that entices all the senses, but doesn't heavily succeed at much. A decent beer, but I don't know if I'll return to it as much as my preferred Warpigs offering, Foggy Geezer.

Solid IPA found canned at a Chicago sports bar. Was interested to try this collaboration with the amazing 3 Floyds. Looks good, slightly darker golden color with some nice fluffy white head and rings of lingering lacing. Smells of some good fruity hops - passionfruit, mango, papaya, tangerine, pineapple. Also some malt, floral hops, vanilla and caramel. Taste follows the nose, good clean flavors, nice balance between the mild bitter hoppiness and sweeter malt backbone. Nice smooth mild mouthfeel, good carbonation. Would have liked a little more hoppiness and juiciness but it was crisp and easy to drink and the higher ABV was well hidden.

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high head that left lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of citrusy and floral hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of citrusy hops - oranges seem to stand out in particular.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and has nice citrusy flavors.
