What's on the Can: "First we put West Coast IPAs in Bombers. Then Bam! The industry was disrupted by 'No Can, No Care' and 'Is it Hazy?' Industry Disrupted is soft, hazy, and triple dry hopped (with) Citra, Mosaic, and more....

Keep Cold. Drink Fresh. Unfiltered and super hoppy, sediment is normal so let it settle and leave it behind. Always pour into a glass. Cheers LCB Brewmaster!"

Hops: Citra, Mosaic, etc.

Where distributed: Local Craft Beer can be found in California.

Appearance (5%): Poured hazy light orange into a pint glass. Unfiltered; lots of sediment suspended in the beer. White head; trace lacing. 4.25/5

Smell (25%): Mostly grape and berry with some citrus notes and complementing oaty malts. 4.25/5

Taste (40%): When colder, it's mostly malt and grape-berry. Let it warm up, then it's more balanced. More citrus notes swoop in after the initial flavors. Full citrus engulfs the mouth on the aftertaste. 4.25/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, some carbonation. Juicy with slight dry tongue. 4.25/5

Overall (20%): An excellent Double IPA. I'd recommend waiting until this one warms up a tad before drinking; it makes all the difference. That extra dimension of citrus towards the aftertaste makes it that much better. 4.25/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.25/5
