Poured from a can with no freshness date into a Bell's tulip. The beer has a nice clear golden orange color, but has very low carbonation and requires rough handling to produce any kind of respectable head. The nose is quite nice. I get a mix of pinetrees and tropical fruit; primarily oranges and peaches.
The beer has a rather light body and thin feel. It is nice and hoppy, but also a bit grainy. There's very little malt backbone or balancing sweetness to go along with the hoppiness, but the beer is still not overly bitter. The bitterness is more on the piney, resiny side and not fruity (which I prefer). The finish is dry and lingering and the beer overall is quite appetizing and refreshing.
This beer reminded me a bit of Schlafly's Tasmanian IPA and fans of that beer would probably love to drink this. It's nice and hoppy, but for me it lacks too much body to be great. It drinks like a hopped-up wheat beer. I think it would make a really nice summertime beer. I probably wouldn't buy this again with Bell's Two-Hearted and SN Torpedo easy to get and Fat Head's Head Hunter just a tad more expensive.
Edit: Call me crazy, but I think this stuff is a little better when enjoyed straight from the can.
