This was a bucket list beer for me that was well worth the hype. I really hope to get some more in a future beer trade.
A - It means what it says. Drink it from the can! It's not that it looks bad, but it's not what you expected. I did drink this from the can and then just poured some out at the end for a peek. Hazy as hell, but still a nice light, sunrise orange.
S- Tropical hop bomb! This smells so good, that you won't want to move your nose away from the can. Massive pineapple, mango, citrus.
T - So smooth and tropical. The flavors are blended so incredibly well. No real hop bite at all. Everything you would expect from a great DIPA.
M - No real alcohol kick or any type of bite from all the hops. Slight astringency.
O - A beer that I want again soon! Incredible beer that has yet to be duplicated or overtaken. If you are any type of hophead, get yourself at can!

Appearance- Hazy darkish yellow coloration. Strong white foamy head, but dissipates quickly.
Smell- Grassy with some floral characteristics.
Smell- Grassy, dank and floral.
Taste- Very piney taste, notes of citrus, a lingering earthy bitterness. I was surprised by the strong biscuity backbone of pale malts here.
Mouthfeel- This beer is resinous but surprisingly easy to drink. Carbonation and consistency are both very good.
This is a very good beer but not the best double IPA I have tried.
