3.53/5 rDev -20%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A - Somewhat large bubbling, off white in color. Faint golden orange in color. Some decent lacing
S - Not as impressive as others have noted. I've tried this on multiple occasions now and I just don't get much. Hops is a bit weak and I really have to search for the fruitiness most people gush over.
T - Again, it's a bit milder than expected. Hops isn't where I'd like to see. More hoppy in the finish than the jolt I was hoping for right out of the gate. Don't get me wrong, it's good, but I was hoping for more. Tastes more like a good balanced hoppy/slightly malty session beer.
M - A tad dry.
O - First try, I thought it had sat on the shelf for a while. Then I tried it a 2nd and 3rd time from different locations. Nope, it all tastes the same.

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.
