I first had this on tap at Real Ale during an anniversary party, long before I started reviewing beers apparently. I was glad to see it is now in cans. Thanks to @Xicanobeerrun for the trade!
This pours from the can a solid yellow tan color, like a dark lemon jello color. There’s a underprounced straw-grass hop aroma on it which lends itself to a crisp, straw/grassy characteristic as it’s sipped. The seasons haven’t changed to fall where I live yet but this beer is making me think it would be the perfect autumn IPA sipper.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

poured from can into new belgium globe. Appearance is cloudy gold with about two fingers of white long lasting foam.
Aroma is of floral hops,
Taste is lemony bitter start with some light malt notes mid pallet moves to a slightly more grapefruit and a light bitter dry finish.
over all a really surprisingly good beer that is well balanced hoppy beer.
