What's on the Website: "This stellar new can of lupulin-laden deliciousness will be taking Oneida’s place in 2018's seasonal rotation. Prepare your faces for a 6.7% hazy IPA packed to the brim with mountains of Nelson, Motueka, and Simcoe hops, yielding a gloriously juicy profile replete with mango, nectarine, and lime-zest character. We think you’re really going to dig it." Read more here!
