I get this in the can often (From the Brevard NC brewery, not Colorado, different water) so this review surmises the beer across multiple tastings. As with many APAs it is best when fresher. Recently I have been getting it as fresh as one week and as old as 1.5 months. This is a great daily session drinker. 8.99 sixer here. Pours excellent head, 1-1.5inchs. Nose is mango when fresh more hops and malt when old; taste is similar. full on fresh grapefruit and bitter hops when a nice sweet fresh hop middle and then some dryness at the end. Compared to Zombie Dust, Pliny the Elder and Heady Topper it is not on that level; but that is a hard level to achieve and I rate this beer consistantly just below them. I highly recommend especially when fresh. Check the date on the bottom of the can.
