12 oz can into a lager glass.

The hazy orange-amber body is topped by a large, fluffy white head that has good retention and leaves plenty of sticky lacing.

Aroma: strong; dank and fruity hops.

Flavor: the complex profile partially fits the name: this is somewhat dank. But there's also a fresh fruity element too. The moderate bitterness reflects more malts than otherwise expected.

O: about as refreshing as a "dank" IPA gets.

After hearing good things about this beer, I was seriously let down, and not too happy I had three left. It has a nice delicious dank fruity hop smell. That's where the good ends. I actually tend to prefer an IPA with a mellow malt back bone, and hop forward. This is ridiculous. I didn't realize how crucial that malt was until trying this brew. Did they even put malt in this? The beer has potential, as the hop flavor is nice, but it's so thin and poorly balanced.... and leaves a strange after taste.
