Outcast Brewing Zilla – American IPA at 6.5% ABV

Outcast Brewing Zilla – American IPA at 6.5% ABV (C$4.95 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 30-Jun-2021, acquired 15-Jul-2021, reviewed 27-Jul-2021)

Appearance: slightly hazy particulate-laden pale gold with one fat finger of fine white head, good retention and well-defined droopy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: juicy tropical fruit, citrus, resiny pine, pale malt. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, high bitter. (8/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry lingering building bitter finish. (4/5)

I understand this is not so much a collaboration, as a recipe share from Rebellion. It so happens I actually had the original, at the brewery in Regina, just over three years ago. This isn’t as pretty as the original, but I think it’s got a slightly more emphatic resiny bitterness, which I enjoy. In my opinion, that gives it a slight edge over the original, but I’m also a bit of a fan of Mr. Schnarr, so that shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. (15/20)

I’m in California and I’m looking for this Zilla IPA to purchase either full or empty can.
My son collects godzilla stuff and this would be cool.
