4.75/5 rDev +7.7%
look: 3 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Medium golden yellow, leaves soap style suds on the glass while drinking.
Smell. INCREDIBLE: PURE MOTHER F&$*ING HOPS. Overwhelming to smell, almost makes you just want to smell it because you fear the taste may not match!
Taste. AWESOME: As the smell hints at, this is an incredibly hoppy beer, very piney and bitey, incredible flavor. Words cannot describe this you must try it.
Mouthfeel: Crisp and fresh with a medium to large bitter bite, with a nice dry finish.
Overall: This beer can easily take on Pliny the Elder and hold its own, and could likely beat it, I think that this beer is phenomenal, definitely in my top 10 .
Serving type: on-tap

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
