Pours a pumpkin golden in my tasting glass with a generous creamy head. Enjoying it with - A Cigar - Hoyo de Monterey Palmas Extra. It holds its own with a cigar, wonderful smell - piney and citrusy - plenty of grapefruit. Lots of mounds in the creamy head, still. Nice hoppy grapefruit tast with some creaminess - not sure if I should call it hop con leche or not, but it is a splendid flavour. Sweet, low on bitterness but the hops keep it toned down. Alcohol seem lower than advertised, but I'll press the I believe button. Mouthfeel is great, I like the creaminess to the texture, I would say medium bodied. Very drinkable but will wait to see what the alcohol does before I pound a few more. I'll try again!

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.
