poured a orange/yellowish color with a bubbly white head. smells like like grapefruit and earthy pine. taste was almost so grapefruity it was tart and sour. amazingly smooth and each sip grew with more hops. Texture was kind of thick. Def overrated in my eyes for a double ipa but I would say this is top 15 dipas in my book

WOW Fantastic.

A - N/A since it's in a can and should stay that way.

S - Citrus, Passion Fruit, Mango, Pineapple, And of course HOPS

T - Sooooo smooth for a DIPA. Scary smooth. You can chug this it is so crisp. I'm having a hard time putting the can down just to do this review. OMG on a Hot day after mowing the grass this would be soooo good. You taste the citrus and the Hop balance. Very little malty flavor.

M - Smooth and dry. Just the right amount of carbonation.

O - I can finally mark this off my Holy Grail of beers to try. Got 2 cans via my first trade here on BA. Now i need to find out how to get this in Pittsburgh more often. If you have a chance to get this and try it you have to or you will regret it.
