A friend gave this to me out of nowhere, he said it was canned within the week.
pours an odd, murky brownish orange with lots of sediment chunks floating around and a think white head
aroma- mango, peach, pineapple, fresh grains, some rose, spicy hop zest
taste- sweet citrus hits the palate up from with tangerine and lemons, fresh tropical fruits mango/pineapple, a little hop spice with subtly sweet bready malt. Some berries in there. Finishes with a grip of pine/hop spice and a bit dry-malty
feel- medium bodied, drinkable, mild booze, delicious, juicy, zesty, dry
this is a great beer. Obviously a lot of hype, probably mostly due to its limited availability, but this is probably one of the best IPAs out there. Juicy, resinous, clean. I'm glad I got to try it!

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.
