Pours golden with nice white head into my dogfish head IPA glass.

Nose is piney and boasts white grapefruit.

Crisp bite of carbonation and hops followed by bready and grassy characters. Nice background bitterness with a slightly bigger hop notes in the finish. Goes over very well and it is so easy to drink.

Love this beer. Madtree does it very well and the can keep so easily. Vets fresh and very drinkable.

Gorgeous thick frothy crown sets up high above a blurry gold and orange.

The nose holds bright citrus notes, mostly pink grapefruit, lemon rind, orange and possibly mango. The herbal, floral hops are resiny pine and rose petal like aromas.

The flavor is spot on the nose with the citrus and herbal hops in full mix.

The feel is very full and satisfying, maybe a touch oily and slick, but very smooth. The bitterness and astringency normal encountered in the style is tempered nicely.

This is a solid beer, a solid IPA and a deeply satisfying drink.

I do enjoy a beer with a witty name, hopefully the beer can back it up, and yay canned craft beer! No date on the can, but should be fresh. Just received in a trade thanks to crapturds (reddit).

Pours a nice big creamy 1 finger head that fades semi slowly, nice soapy lacing, a hazy apricot orange slight golden huge beer.

Nose brings a nice hop aroma, though a bit lighter than I expected as far as strength goes. It brings a nice floral note, with some citrus, a little stone fruit, mild grassy notes, mild pith like and even a bit resinous, also a nice tangerine as it warms, all that with a hint of a sweet candy malt base.

taste comes on with a big hop base, and what seems like malts but comes through bone dry. Hops are the main attraction again, with more citrus and a little resin, mild grapefruit pith with a bit more tangerine, a hint of a stone fruit note, mild grassy slightly herbal hops that also hint at a touch of mint in the background. There is a mild reddish toasty malt presence in there, but no sweetness as it seems almost overly attenuated, the balance is long gone. The hops turn a bit spicy and chewy on the back end, and especially on the super dry finish, as the hops really linger with bitterness it gets a little astringent and tongue nagging bitter, which is not necessarily a bad thing if you love super hoppy bitter beers.

Mouth is med bod, lots of nice fluffy carbonation, very dry.

Overall quite nice, enjoyable tasty hops, with enough body to back it up despite the lack of sweetness or much of a malt profile. That being said, perhaps a bit over-attenuated as it lacks any sort of balance and the rampant hops just destroy your palate. Still a pretty nice beer.
