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.
