Thank you Miamichael2 for this one.
a: pours a hazy orange color with about an inch of pillowy head that disappears semi fast leaving a good amount of lacing resting atop the beer and around the edge of the glass. As I sip, the lacing sticks to the edges of the glass
s: Citrus, Grapefruit, pine hop bitterness. The Citrus is what hits me the hardest, followed by the pine. A little malt sweetness to balance
t: Fruity sweetness. The bitterness is strong. Unlike in the nose, the piny hop bitterness is the dominant flavor
M: medium bodied beer with good carbonation, very nice
overall, this is a really good brew. I am thankful I had the chance

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.
