look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance - Even though you are supposed to drink from the can i poured a little bit out just to get a look at it. Pours a very light orange, with almost no head.

Smell - Very hop full aroma. hints of citrus and heavy pine, i would even say it has a canabis type aroma being very grassy and piney.

Taste - Hops are strong forward and stay consistent all the way through. Hints of pine and grass.

Mouthfeel - very rich mouthfeel, staying wet on the palate making you want more.

Overall - this beer is perfect, very complex and well balanced making it one of the best IPA's out there.

Serving type: can
