This was an outstanding IPA, just that right amount of in-your-face hoppiness that makes life so great

Lots of pine but also surprising citrus and tropical notes and a nice malt balance. Love the convenience of the cans too. New favorite go to daily IPA I think!

Poured into an IPA glass from a 12 oz can. Canned 9/20/14.

Color is clear light gold with a 1 finger white head that dissipates quickly. A bit of semi-sticky lacing. Smell was pretty subdued at first - it needs to warm up above refrigerator temp (probably around 45F or so). Once it warmed up, there was a nice aroma of floral and citric hops - very juicy. Flavor was exactly the same - originally it was a bit cold and didn't offer much. After it warmed, it really exploded with delicious orange, grapefruit, pineapple and mango flavors. It has a nice malt backbone that just keeps the hops at bay while remaining well in the background where it belongs. Finish is clean and bitter and lingers for a bit. Body is definitely on the thin side, with moderate carbonation.

Overall, this beer is an enigma. When it's too cold (or too warm) it didn't offer much to get excited about. But at the right temperature, it's really, really good.
