Served in a pint glass. Thanks duff27!
A- Light caramel with 2" thick off-white head. Excellent lacing that remains on the edges of the glass throughout.
S- Sweet malts, a ton of citrus in there (pineapple, passion fruit)
T- Light sweet malt taste, a lot of citrus flavors (guava, grapefruit), and nice citrus bittering hops at the finish.
M- Medium body, but just a little thin. light, crisp, smooth finish.
O- Love this beer! Has a ton citrus that I love in ipa's and is very easy to drink without seeming watered down.

12oz bottle, thanks Mark
Surprised to see this on the top 100 list actually. Pours a yellow/orange color with a large fluffy white head. Big time aromas of resinous, citrusy hops, grapefruit, and cannabis. The rounder creamier end of light to medium bodied and very drinkable. This beer doesn't ever try to be anything its not, this is hop forward with balance on the back burner. Not bad.

Almost feel bad getting this review in as I am ultimately cutting into my own supply of this stuff!
People mention "fatigue" on a particular style often on this site and i feel like that is where I have been with IPAs, after a while, they all start to taste very similar and there isn't much differentiation.
However, when cracking open one of these it is like joy and excitement of this style returns again.
Clear pouring, clear fresh sharp pungent tropical citrus. This beer literally awakened me from my IPA slumber. It is a definite must try.
The hype is only going to build on this one, so I better stock up while I can.

This brew is a brightly shining crystal clear amber in color. The white head that develops tops off at just over a finger in height and leaves a thick, compact foam when it dissipates a bit, which itself leaves fairly hefty deposits of lacing behind.
A pungent hit of fresh grapefruit pounds the nose. It remains but gives way to resinous pine bitterness and a note of pith as well, with enough caramel malt sweetness to balance while allowing the hops to make noise. This is a great-smelling, very well balanced beer. A touch of sugars are noticeable as a note in the background, doing a good job to complement.
Grapefruit. Pine. Pith. Caramel and bready malts for balance. A touch of earthiness. There's something great here and it's more than just a smack of hops in the face; it's complexity, balance and just the way everything works together as well as the extremely flavorful nature of it. This is simply great beer.
The body is medium, and right off the bat comes a mingling of crispness and smoothness that's moderate but makes this a pleasure to drink.
There's a reason for this beer's grade, and it's well deserved.
