Pours a fairly mirky golden-amber color with a good bubbly white head. Medium retention and lacing. Visible carbonation.
Sweet citrus, mild grapefruit, light caramel or a touch of fruit. Not intense smell but pleasant.
Nice, not overwhelming hop citrus up front with notes of grapefruit transitioning in a slight sweet middle. Notes of faint fruttiness grasping towards peach or mango. Good balance. A slight hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste.
Light bodied with good carbonation. Crisp and pretty refreshing.
Overall a great IPA. Good balance and a good representation of the style.
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.
