Poured from can to pint glass

A- A fluffy off-white head that rose and steadily declined, revealing the beautiful golden glowing contents of the beer. It looked on the light side but seemed to be enchanted with the light shining through...Cool can art

S- Sweet fragrant fresh hops, sweet sugary esters

T- This is very hoppy but also quite malty. It is jam packed with flavors that are quite complex. The hop profile is very resinous and very in your face-in a good way. The hops are very fresh and citrusy but not bitter in the least bit to me. The strong malt backbone does a great job at balancing out this brew

M- Slightly carbonated, medium bodied brew thats relatively thick and silky sooth

O- Overall this may be the best beer I've had in this style. It is highly balanced and the amount of flavors and complexities rival some of the higher end DIPAS. A great IPA! Highly recommend

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

APPEARANCE: Mostly clear and golden in color. The initial head is pretty huge...about three full fingers, but it settles swiftly into a quarter-inch cap on the surface. The lacing covers a fair amount of the back of the glass, but where it sticks it is quite thick.

SMELL: Juicy and zesty. Orange and lemon zest are all over this, but a little grapefruit also comes through. A bit of pine and just a touch of grass also make themselves known.

TASTE: Grapefruit comes through much stronger than it did in the nose. The orange (especially) and lemon are still here. Pine is strong and the grass is present. Also, that weird onion flavor (see Stone Enjoy By) brings in a nice hoppy touch.

MOUTHFEEL: I guess this is what the ideal balance is like. I truly can't tell if this is more sweet or more dry. Either way, the carbonation provides a solid, but not-to-intense tickle and the body is right down the middle, medium. Pretty much perfect.

OVERALL: This beer is so well balanced. It's difficult to say anything bad. It truly carries some of the characteristics of a big, bold Double IPA while maintaining a lower ABV and more of that intense hop character. Amazing beer.

EDIT: This beer is fresh as fuck.
