There are many beers with a similar flavor but this one stands out. The intense hoppiness with the sweet citrus flavor is delightful. Maybe it's the red bull style can that I'm attracted to but I personally enjoy drinking this one straight out of the can. For some reason, maybe it has to do with easy availability, but I have always passed on this. I will never again take a beer for granted.

Not bad. My can is about 7 mo old, but I'm not complaining since I got it as an extra in a trade. I dig this a lil more than High-Res. Some juicy hop notes in the nose, and it was quite delightful. Flavor profile was unimpressive. It does have some resinous, dank qualities. Lacked complex layers and direction. Quite malty. Would like to try fresh, but gotta rate as is.

Greatest beer ever? I say yes. As a major IPA fan, this is the most perfect one I've found for my taste.

Clean, crisp, and delicious. At 103 IBUs this guy comes with a kick, but in all the right ways. Beautiful looking beer, it's like a super model of IPA.
