Drank in the can.
Overall taste is superb. Worth the hype. Never liked it too danked or too bitter but this beer is so balanced. I wish I was alot closer so I can get access to the source but it is a pleasure to have tasted the best.Cheers! I did a trade that made me have second thoughts but I am thankful I went with it. Thanks bmx87!

it doesn't take alot of words to describe this beer because it's near perfect.

Traded for this, advertised as 1 week old, by the time i got it i'm assuming closer to 1 month old… however i'd find it hard to be any better fresh than it was a few weeks old.

the smell is very attractive.

The first sip blew me away with the perfect blend of the tropical citrus and hops built into a body that is a bit more full than your average dipa ... few sips in you get more of the hops. After taste sticks with you for a while.

You easily forget that this is an 8% beer, and it'd be nice if they could bump it up a notch more but this is still a creeper. This is so drinkable it's dangerous.

Thank you to the dude in PA that shipped me this amazing stuff. Cheers
