Alright, this one lives up to the hype. Finally snagged a bottle of one of these beers. Hard to believe it took this long, considering I live in the same city its brewed. On to the review:
Smell instantly stunned me. I would give it an 8 if I could. A huge bouquet of citrus sweetness. Tangerine, orange, grapefruit, maybe even a little melon and honey. Taste was equally amazing. All the same citrus flavors(and the melon), with a touch of hoppy bitterness on the end. No pine to speak of though, which is a good thing for my preferences.
A little more of a slick mouthfeel than I was expecting, but still very acceptable. Perfect drinkability and delicious, what more could you want in an IPA? If I found this at a bar, I don't think I would leave until the keg was tapped.

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.
