Poured from the can into a pint glass.
A really nice dark golden colored body seems to fit perfectly with the style, and an impressive foamy white head gives this beer a nice look in the glass.
Smell is up front with the C-hops, being a good bit citrusy and floral. A slightly sweet malt presence is detectable but manages to stay in the background.
Taste is sweet and hoppy. In fact, its just too balanced to be an IPA in my book. While they may use several hop varieties, including dry hopping with amarillo, ahantum, and simcoe, there is just too much of a malt presence. The hop flavors that are available are indeed citrusy and a bit piney/floral, but the malt backbone gets in the way of full hoppiness.
A smooth medium body mouthfeel with a good bit of carbonation. Overall, a very enjoyable beer, but its hard for me to think of it as an IPA. Reviewing to style, I would probably give a better score if this was listed as an APA, were I think the even balance between hops and malt is more appropriate.

Can thrown into a mix-six pack from Wegmans.
This one's a hazy dark orange, with a good healthy one inch head, and a little bit of lacing.
Smells like juicy citrus fruits and herbal piney hops.
This one has a crisp and succint hop bite that is very pleasant. Past the upfront bitterness, I can taste tons of orange, pineapple, mango, peach, etc, just very juicy and fruity.
Medium bodied, crisp and very clean mouthfeel. Slightly grainy. High carbonation.
A very good IPA from 21st Amendment, I didn't have huge expectations going in, but it was very tasty.
