What's on the Can: "Hazy IPA w/ Loral and Mosaic hops."

Hops: Loral, Mosaic.

Where distributed: Concrete Jungle likely distributes just within California for now.

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

Smell (25%): Good sweet citrus/grapefruit, with pine and some hop floral. 4/5

Taste (40%): Follows the nose. Tropical, pine, and floral all in there. Aftertaste brings out a bit more of the citrus peel and grapefruit notes. 4/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, good carbonation. A bit of juiciness with some dry tongue. 4.25/5

Overall (20%): An awesome IPA. To me, more of a no-frills, straightforward IPA that I'd gladly enjoy when not reviewing brews. To me, it's a West Coast and East Coast hybrid, taking some hoppiness and pine from the West and a bit more tropical from the East. 4/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.038/5
