12oz bottle enjoy by 11/30/12 poured into a tulip.
The beer comes out a golden copper colored body that is slightly see-through. Not much of a white head lays atop a glowing brew. Good head retention and lacing.
The nose on this is just a big ol punch of sweet fruits. There is orange, grapefruit, tangerine, peach, and pineapple.
A more pronounced grapefruit in the taste. There is a punch of bitterness that mellows quickly into a nice soft lingering bitterness. There is also enough sweetness to hold up to the bitterness. More of the other fruit like orange comes out a little underneath the grapefruit.
Medium bodied and just the right amount of carbonation. It drinks fairly smooth.
I’ve had this before and thought eh, but this fairly fresh(from what I can tell) bottle is amazing and totally worth the price point.

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.
