This was honestly fantastic beer (better than I anticipated, I thought it would be over rated). Best in the world?... to hard to quantify but this beer pushes perfection. I will say, I had two cans shipped to me, had the first out of a can and the second out of a glass (because I like to look my beer in the eyes while I sip it) it was better out of the can, though I also had it 3 weeks fresher from the can. Somehow this beer manages to have a serious hop punch that still feels balanced.

Very citrusy on the nose. Pours a cloudy light orange. Very very light with a nice citrus hop bite. Really refreshing for a DIPA
