Pours clear gold with a huge light tan head, leaving tons of lacing down the whole glass from the well retained foam.
Smells of citrus and tropical goodness, with some clean malt underneath.
Taste is bitter up front, which mellows in the middle to some malty sweetness. Just as the malt sweetness starts, it changes to mango fruit, and finishes with bitter pith, which lingers for some time.
While having a lighter body, it still has plenty of enjoyable bite, and is very drinkable.
It has been awhile since I had this, and that's a good thing. The last time I had this from the bottle was disappointing, due to the difference in the tapped/bottle versions.
Serving type: bottle

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.
Serving type: can
