I think the Earth just stopped moving.
Poured gently for a 2-finger head, into a wispy film, average lacing, color is sediment-filled amber-orange.
Where to begin.... Cracking this beer fills the air with fresh hops like you've never smelled before. Unreal.
Aroma. Aroma, aroma, aroma.... lovely fresh tart grapefruit hops, lemon bitters. They are the only things I smell, but they are above and beyond.
Taste begins with very sugary grapefruit without any acidity, into lemon. Honestly, these hops are perfect, and nowhere near overpowering. Plentiful, yet not burdensome.
Mouthfeel? How is this possibly a single IPA? This is the by far the single best single IPA I've ever tasted. Screw writing more of this review. BUY THIS BEER.

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.
