look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours golden caramel with a 1 1/2 finger head. Some tiny bubbles in the middle, and even tinier free floating stuff throughout.
Smells apricot and piney.
Tastes of a bitter hop explosion with some of that fruit, and malt is in there somewhere but, as I prefer, it is backseat to the hops. Drinks nicely.
Nice mouthfeel, thick and smooth
Overall, a great go-to American IPA. I've avoided this for a couple years due to the canning aspect, and i wouldnt have tried this anytime soon had it not been for recently trying another canned beer that blew me out of the water (H. Topper). Since then I suddenly became open to trying more canned craft beers. There never really was a good reason to avoid them. This is a worthy one of them.
