Thanks for adding this beer. I had it on the same occasion, but did not have all the details. My memory is a little hazy, but this is how I remember it:
A - Very light in color. Fizzy bubbles that formed neither much of a head, nor much lacing.
S - Best part of the beer by far. Really nice tropical fruit aroma. Fairly strong, but not overpowering. I like this smell from my IPAs.
T - Pretty good, but not great. Follows the nose, and adds a light sweetness, but something was just a bit off. I had had several beers by this point, so it may not have been a fair review.
M - By far the weakest point of this beer. I likened this beer more to carbonated hop tea than an actual substantive beer (ironic given the name). Just seemed very thin and watery to me.
O - Bissell Brothers is able to extract a very nice smell and flavor from the hops that they used, but everything else is mediocre to poor. I like the idea of trying new arrivals to the craft beer scene, but this one isn't going to cut it for me.

From a can purchased yesterday and canned 3 days ago. Very fresh beer from these guys and I'm very glad to have it!
A: goldish hay in color, clear, thin white lacing sticking to glass
S: citrusy, resiny, full, some sweetness, balanced
T: very similar to the nose, lots of hoppy goodness, pungent citrus and resiny, very smooth and crisp, very balanced flavors
M: good carb, very smooth light and refreshing
O: perfectly balanced beer from the Bissell brothers. This super smooth, very hoppy yet incredibly drinkable beer is perfectly balanced! Get some and drink fresh!

Pours a sunny gold with a loose, off-white head that dissipates into a slick. Nose expresses citrus rind, a hint of noble hops and a slight yeasty character. Taste consistent with nose; however the flavor are a bit duller - there's more bitterness and less citrus than suggested by the nose as well as a suggestion of onions (Summit?). Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with a lively carbonation and some acidity. Overall, I thought it was a pretty good IPA, but don't understand the hype - I was told it may have been an older can, so perhaps I'll revisit with a fresh one if the opportunity presents.
