Served chilled from a can into an AleSmith elongated tulip glass.

Golden yellow color with a respectable persistent head and minimal lacing; slightly fuzzy, medium transparency.

Smells of pine, delicate hops, woody, and moderate maltiness, and some musty aroma.

Tastes only slightly bitter, with hop flavor ranging from grapefruit to smoked wood. Medium body and carbonation.

Notes: This was my first LA beer, bought on the recommendation of a store clerk, so I didn't know what to expect (I didn't know they even made beer). This is also my first canned IPA. The $3 price tag seems reasonable for one pint of canned IIPA.

It's ok. It's a bit hot and spicy - though not good "hot and spicy" like Raul's first date with his baby mama. Nah, it's more hot and spicy like your bathroom at 4 AM after a 12 pack of Keystone and a few too many Doritos Locos tacos.

Now, don't get Raul wrong. Like the main man said, it's ok. I'd recommend any playa to try it on their own to form they own opinion. But overall, like That 80's Show, this sucker ain't going into sindication.

Served in a pint glass at Toronado.

Smells like weed. Very fresh hops. Juicy and fruity and great. Clear golden. Light head. It tastes great. A lighter Hoptimum. Delicious DIPA. Light grain is lightly sweet. Hugely bitter, especially the aftertaste. Highly recommended.

Got in a trade with TopsecretWaffle. 16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 6/22/2013. Pours lightly hazy golden amber color with a 1 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big lemon zest, orange zest, orange rind, peach, pineapple, tangerine, floral, grass, light honey, and floral earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity of citrus/tropical hops with moderate malt; and good strength. Taste of lemon zest, orange zest, orange rind, tangerine, pineapple, floral, grass, light pine, light honey, bread, and floral earthiness. Fair amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus zest, citrus rind, pineapple, floral, grass, light honey, and floral earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice balance and complexity of citrus/tropical hops; with a fair amount of malt balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a lightly creamy, smooth, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice IPA. Good all around balance and complexity of hop flavors with light-moderate malt; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.
