Overall Impression:
Looked forward to trying this session IPA but was disappointed. I was kind of a murky muddled mess with a powdery aftertaste. I drank this in August of 2018 and the can date said 7-8-18 so I'm assuming that is a born on date? Not sure but I wouldn't buy this beer again.

Overall Impression:
The second beer I've had from Parallel 49 and it was OK. It was like an over ripe fruit salad with not of hop presence. If the IBU's were higher this could have been a more balanced beer. I'm not sure if the beer was old because I couldn't make out the can date.

I haven't had a new IPA from Breckenridge for a while so it was nice to see this on the self. It's not a west coast citrus bomb but it's citrusy enough with a little piney dankness thrown in. My only gripe is no bottle date! Recommended
