Picked up while driving through TN on my way to SC last week. The can was two months old but this was a diacetyl bomb through and through and ended up going into the drain.

There is an off putting aroma almost like spoiled milk emanating from my glass immediately after pouring from the can. The odor doesn’t seem to come thru in the flavor but putting the glass up close to my nose has become too much to tolerate. Poured 2/3 of it down the sink. Tried a second one in another glass with the same result.

Dumped it too. I guess I’ll gift the remainder of the six pack to a guy at work that I don’t really like.

Pours golden like most of them. Head is white with a great amount of lacing. Nose is sort of normal. Taste is like a light beer, but the bitterness hits on the back of palate. Good beer.

First had at The Lounge, Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort and Spa, Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, poured from 12-oz. can into clear plastic beer cup. A
good find after a wholesome day at Dollywood, this IPA is very nicely balanced and flavorful.

12 ounce can, 6.2% abv.

Pours a hazy orange with no lack of foam and retention of said foam.
Grassy nose that also has hints of tropical fruit. That grows as I take more whiffs.
Grass actually gives way to mango, pineapple and then grapefruit. Pretty bitter I'll my book. Dank even.
You may ask, what aboot the malt? Well when you are dealing with Sorachi Ace, Citra, Simcoe and Cascade hops, you are pretty much focused on them and try describing what they bring to the table. Cracker? Biscuit? ??
Smooth mouthfeel. Hops linger on my tongue like forever. Initially, I wasn't that impressed. Til palate familiarity set in. I would drink it again, no problem.

From the can, it pours a hazy amber with a nice head. Hops present in the nose, pleasantly. The mouth follows the nose and the end result is a well balanced Easter IPA. Yum!
