A+ in my book, just a fantastic and well rounded beer.
A: Dark gold/copper almost zero head but what little there is, is white.
S: amazing, pine notes exude, floral hop notes there as well. They almost mask any malt aroma in the beer but what comes through is a biscuity malt aroma.
T: seems like mostly two row in typical APA. I'd say some Munich malt maybe as the taste is all about the hops, if there is some caramel I'd be surprised. But the hop explosion, wow. Blends well with the nose and finishes bitter, but on the right side of the balance. The full body malts mix very well with these pine flavors, just the right amount of grapefruit coming through as well.
M: almost viscous for an ale. Creamy feel and again, blends well with the taste and nose. Makes you want to sip it which is great as the taste profile changes as it warms.
O: a fantastic beer

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.
