Huge thanks to my man Evan (optimator13) for this much wanted IPA!
A - Looks like a bright delectable Florida orange in liquid form - very nice! Huge three finger head that hangs around for quite some time which is fine by me. Laces the glass with every sip.
S - Oh my! Citrus, grapefruit, bitterness, west coast hops, and more citrus! Did I mention the strong citrus floral smells? I want this in air freshener form asap!
T - Much like the nose this is a citrus and grapefruit bomb! Perfect amount of hop bitterness. As it warms the malt balances this baby out perfectly. A little sweetness at the end throws in a nice little surprise.
M - Medium and nicely carbonated, just like I want my IPA's to feel like.
O - Wow this was a really great IPA. If I had it available I'd buy this and Sweetwater IPA on a regular basis. An unexpected and very welcomed treat Evan, thanks man!

This is a good beer. I love the fact that you can get it in a can.
Appearance: Nice IPA color, what you should expect from such a beer.
Smell: Nice piney, citrus zest aroma, sweet but has the perfect balance.
Taste: This beer is great out of a can, its taste is similar to the aroma profile, floral, piney, citrus hop flavor. It was really good when really cold, as it warmed it was not as good to me anyway. It seemed to lack something but I cannot figure out exactly what.
Overall: This is a great beer. I think there are better but I would buy it again, just to see if something was off in this batch, not that there really was anything that was "off", it just perceived it that way this time.
