I bought this at the recommendation of my distributor and I couldn't be more pleased that he suggested this little green can of deliciousness.
Appearance: Pores a hazy, golden orange color with a 1 finger thick white head. Good amount of carbonation present.
Smell: Smells like a mixture of tropical fruits and TANGERINE. A lot of tangerine coming through, with some mango.
Taste: The hops definitely leap forward on this beer with a taste almost identical to the nose. A lot of fruits, tangerine to me is definitely what steps forward the most, and there is a slight sweetness to it balanced out with the malty undertones.
Mouthfeel: slick, oily feel with a solid amount of carbonation. It definitely has a resinous feel to it but it doesn't linger too long at all. Fades away cleanly.
Overall: A very solid IPA, extremely fresh tasting and incredibly well balanced. It really does fade away smoothly despite a nice kick from the hops in the beginning. For the price and ease of drinking this is definitely a must and going to be a regular at my place.

12oz can, no canning date (marked "- - -" on the bottom), poured into a Darkness goblet 7/20/2014.
A- Hazy light copper body with a one finger white head with fair retention time. Drops into a medium sized collar and leaves bits and pieces of lacing.
S- Pineapple, citrus, green hops, a bit of toffee and bread. Smells like a beer that's just been put into the primary fermenting vessel, in that it's "green" in a good way.
F- A bit of floral notes up front, some bread and toffee in the middle, with a bit of pine and a non-descript bitterness on the backend, perhaps pineapple. Not super bitter, but quite good.
M- Medium in body, a bit creamy, neither dry nor resinous. Drinks very easily.
O- It's a solid IPA. Nothing pops about it, but the profile is fairly unique in that it smells like a green beer. Perhaps thats why the can is green.
