Poured from 12 oz can into willy glass. Appearance is clear golden yellow with an average white head dissipating and leaving minimal lacing. Smells slightly of citrus and pine, with some malty sweetness coming through....not super aromatic, but I drank it pretty cold. Taste is somewhat alphadelic-ly bitter. Lots of alpha acid here. Hoppy bitter. Not so bitter that it puckers, but leaning well towards the bitter side. Some maltiness showing too. Overall, if you like lots of hoppy bitterness in your IPAs, you'll probably love this.

Tawny bronze with creamy pitted snowy head.
Flinty grain, mango, and golden syrup on the nose opening into lots of oily orange rind.
Icing sugared croissant and orange slurpy up front the light pine, Seville orange, and resin hops.
Tangerine sorbet and sugared white grapefruit end and lingered aspirin bitterness.
Lt-med, oily, some chew.

Juicy, with layers of citrus. Perfect balance of bitter and aroma – IBUs are firm but not overdone. Rock candy sweetness keeps it light, almost delicate. Brings a lot for 6.7%
