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

A: The beer is clear amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a thin off whit head that died down, consistently leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of citrus and pine resin are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of citrusy hops along with notes of caramel from the underlying malts along with a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is rather easy to drink hop-frward IPA and is a good representation of the style.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a can into a pint glass.
Appearance - almost like an amber, nice and bubbly; forms an impressive head and leaves sticky lacing up and down the glass.
Smell - Floral hops, with some citrus fruit! Noticeable malt presence that balances it out!
Taste - This is smooth and easy to drink. Compliments the nose...you want more of this hop forward, yet well balanced brew!
Feel - The palate is alive after the first sip; bitter hops, with a nice compliment of carbonation!
Overall - underrated, and in a can, which I like to give kudos for convenience! Not a top 10 beer, but every time I have it I develope a new appreciation! Don't overlook.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Clear copper with orange highlights. Healthy 2 fingers of cream colored head that lasted. As is dissipated, there was an abundance of oils. Beautiful sticky frosty laces.

Grapefuit and tropical fruit, spicy pine and resin. Hop domination over a toasty caramel malt profile.

Loads of grapefruit and tropical fruits up front followed by a bashing of spicy piney resins. Slightly sweet caramel and toasty backing. Great tongue punching pine bitterness that leaves a great aftertaste.

Dry and Sticky. Medium body. Slow medium carbonation.

Very drinkable, tasty, and refreshing. Great bitterness and hop profile. Would love to have this as an option around my neck of the woods, but I can settle with it as a great standby when I visit friends and family in Colorado.
