I got a 6 pack in a trade. Thanks, Stephen!
It pours a hazy orange(could be chill haze) with a 2 finger head of foam, some nice lacing left behind.
A very nice citrus aroma, grapefruits and tropical fruits, bitter but not overly so because of a nice amount of malt.
Grapefruit and pine in the taste with less malt than I noticed in the smell. Well, I pulled it straight from the fridge, which I don't do often. Pause. More of the malt shows up as the beer warms up but it's still a hop forward and delightful to drink IPA. The abv is very manageable.
Medium body, same for the carbonation, it's a good mouthfeel. Heck, if I had this around town, it would share duties with SR Pako's. I like!

A - Pours a hazy golden orange into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass. Creamy head recedes rather more quickly than I expected and forms a thin film up top. Spotty lacing. Lots of rapidly-streaming visible carbonation.
S - Absolute dynamite and clearly what turned out to be my favorite part of the beer. Great hop intensity. Floral/Tropical aromas with a bit of sweetness.
T - Follows the nose, although the sweetness is a bit more pronounced here. Something like candy. The hops are still dominant. A fairly firm bitterness comes in on the back end.
M - The one major weak spot for me. I love a good medium+ bodied IPA. It would be a stretch to call this light/medium. It is very thin and even a little slick. Finishes clean and slightly dry.
O - Nice beer, if difficult to rank across the various categories. If I had regular access to this I would buy it, but not terribly frequently.
