Poured from a 12oz can into glassware

A> Pours a clear orange-gold with a fat 3 finger head that does a decent job at sticking around and clinging to the sides. Gorgeous looking beer.

S> Grapefruit, peaches, a little bit of bubble gum. Pretty aromatic, lots of sweet and bitter flavors are present.

T> Starts with a bit of pine and citrus bitter that quickly mellows out into tropical and peachy hop flavors. As the hops mellow the sweetness from the malt creeps in. The malt comes through with a bit of candy-like sweetness. Finishes quite sweet from the malt with a bit of the hops to bring everything back down to earth.

M> Pretty thick but could stand a little more carbonation, the finish is pretty wet.

O> A pretty solid IPA weighing in at nearly 7% that features some nice tropical & peach hop flavors but is just a little too sweet for my taste.

had this one straight from the can and poured into glass.

in the glass, the appearance is a hazy orange with a soapy, thin head. nice lacing on the glass.

on the nose, lots of dank hops and citrus, some orange, pine, slight grapefruit and peach. tinge of cannabis scent, too. this beer smells great.

on the front of the tongue, a nice wallop of dank, piney hops followed by the sweet citrus, some orange and grapefruit follow. a slight malt backbone. dry finish, slight astringency. thinner mouthfeel and subtler flavors when poured into the glass.

i prefer this one from the can for taste. the beer smells amazing and the glass helps open that up, but the can preserves the hops and citrus flavors more. overall, a reall nice IPA.
