16oz can (4/21/15) into a Heady Topper stemless pint.

Pours a foamy, .5 finger white head with good retention. Beer is a cloudy ruby red. Lacing is spotty and stringy with good stick. Solid.

Nose is citrus, papaya, grass and piney hop bitterness with a mild sweetness. Pretty mellow but enticing and moderately aromatic.

Opens citrus, papaya and mango. Some grass, pine, and a bit of a soapy hop bitterness in the middle with a dank hop finish and a juicy fruit and hop bitterness in the aftertaste. Simple and done very well.

Light bodied with moderate to ample carbonation. Smooth with some bubbles in the mouth and goes down juicy and quenching. Finishes messy and dry with a dry, filmy aftertaste. Very good.

Another very well done single hop IPA from Other Half, in contrast to Nelson, this one's not as fruit forward nor as juicy... but that's a reflection of the hop character and not the brewers ability. Still very good and well worth seeking out.

16 oz. can poured into a snifter. Hazy pale yellow. Medium white head. Doughy malt and citrus hop aroma. Simple and very nice. Taste is lightly sweet. Surprisingly dank. Medium body. Well carbonated. Excellent.

Poured a 16 oz. can into a tulip glass. Pours a light golden cloudy color with a very thin white head that disappates quickly and does not cling to the glass. Aroma is Pure Citra, my favorite hop! Citrus, grapefruit, kiwi tropical hints hits the nose. Taste is a little bit subdued, was hoping for more of a powerful Citra hop taste but still very good. Can't believe it's 7% ABV. Mouthfeel is very crisp and light but not enough head and a little too light. Overall an excellent offering although I enjoyed Otherhalfs Amarillo more as well as Kanes Citra which may be my favorite beer!
