poured from bottle into standard pint glass. lots of wonderful soft head. about two fingers (i was aggressive). pours a beautiful golden haze. nose is all malt, tid bit of hops. taste is malty caramel up front then a solid hop finish. not much citrus in this one. if i had to pin-point, id match some subtle grapefruit. mouthfeel is great, awesome and refreshing. overall, great beer. i would drink it again, and again and again. i would definitely like to try it fresh!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75
appearance: pours a monstrous, white, sticky head with unbelievaboe retention, color is a slightly hazy copper, ith very little visible carbonation.
smell; mild but very pleasant. quite bread for an IPA, with melon and other vague tropical notes.
taste; very similar to smell, but the bread is slightly stronger.
mouthfeel; full bodied but not heavy, slighlty dry, very slight carbonation.
overall; unique and immensely satisfying IPA, very drinkable, would definitely buy again.

Good head with good retention and lacing. Nose is citrus and pear. Taste is smoothly bitter, with silky heat more than its purported 7.5%, not in a bad way. Medium bitter taste with fruity hop finish. Great beer, but perhaps not quite world class. This wasn't a super-fresh can, so I'll certainly taste it again if I ever have the chance.
