What's on the Can/Website: "Flaked oats, wheat, and corn lend a soft, rounded mouthfeel to this unfiltered IPA, loaded with newfangled hop varieties - El Dorado, Mosaic, Idaho 7, and Meridian - for lots of juicy flavor and aroma."

Appearance (5%): Poured hazy golden into a pint glass. Unfiltered, some sediment at the bottom of the can. Frothy white head, some lacing. 4.25/5

Smell (25%): Pleasing tropical tangerine, pineapple, and stone fruit, with complementing malts. 4.5/5

Taste (40%): Starts more oaty malt, then gradually increases with tropical tangerine, pineapple, and stone fruit. Citrus aftertaste. Very refreshing. 4.25/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, some carbonation. Very juicy with trace dry tongue. 4.5/5

Overall (20%): An excellent IPA. I mainly got this for the awesome name and label (a take on the vintage Topps baseball cards). A nice take on the New England style; very juicy and tropical-forward. 4.25/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.338/5
