A - Golden/Straw color, a smooth creamy head with lacing that doesn't quit.
S - Peach, mango, malt and pine resin scent.
T - Really great balance of hops, malty sweetness and tropical fruit. Pretty damn near perfect balance.
M - A little sticky sweetness that cloys to the tongue then quickly turns to a hoppy dryness and peach and mango overtones. Excellent degree of carbonation.
O - Really nice IPA. Excellent balance of sweet and happy bitterness. I really enjoyed this IPA and I would enjoy drinking one anytime.

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.
