Looks a bit cloudy with a red hue and tight bubbles, funky can label that looks like a reggae music poster
Smells a bit musty
Taste is hoppy and firm back end taste not too biter but full of flavor with some tart fruit tones like dried apricot
The feel of the taste lasts on your tongue
Overall this is a great beer i'm enjoying it

A: poured from a 12 oz can into a pint glass, copper colored with a large off white head that lingers leaving good lacing, clear

S: sweet fruit salad, mango, pineapple, papaya, fruity West Coast, juicy

T: only a bit of the fruit comes through in the taste, quite sweet, grapefruit peel bitterness on finish

M: sticky with medium carbonation

O: aromatic hop smell is very nice, wish the flavor was as complex and powerful, color is a bit too red, good mouthfeel

Bought in 12 Oz can in okc. Poured into a glass and enjoyed in Amtrak sleeper car en route to Chicago.

Attractive orange-amber clear liquid with giant foamy off white head.

Aroma is a full mix of hops and malt.

Flavor is a bit muddied to me. A bunch of hops, but too many bitter and enough floral for my taste. Very rich but not in balance. The different notes don't play well together.

Very full mouthfeel.

I would have liked this one better with more sprucey and floral notes.

I drink this beer when brewing my own because to me, it tastes exactly like the hoppy wort I'm in the middle of boiling and it fits the situation perfectly. It has a nice pine/malt touch but I think it's pretty hop-forward for a standard IPA....I guess that's considered more West Coast although I just call it good. It took 4 cans of these to really understand the intricacies but I'm glad I stayed patient. It's a solid beer but probably somewhere in the middle of the massive craft IPA group. I doubt I'll see it again in the Northeast but you never know. Found it at a gas station in Warren, VT while snagging some Lawson's Sip of Sunshine.
