Pale straw, not much volume to its white head, and the little that is produced doesn't stick around- which doesn't matter much, considering I usually drink this one straight from the can. Smells is pungent, lots of tropical citrus, followed by dank earthiness, with a hint of pine. Flavor, too, is citrus based, lively, grapefruit and tangerine, pine finish, some malt thrown in throughout, with bitterness prevailing at the end. Very, very flavorful. Overly carbonated to the point of being like soda, but light bodied and easy drinking- perfect for a session beer.
This is a great idea- very solid IPA sold in lightweight can 15-packs for a reasonable price. Elegant brilliance. As for the beer itself, the emphasis on the fruit is to my liking, but varied and with enough pine and malt to be a balanced multi-note beer. Refreshing to the maximum, quaffable, tasty, and affordable. Sign me up.

Canned 08/10/15

Pours yellow-gold with a white head. Smells of sweet lemon and grassy hops. Tastes like mild lemon with strong grassy hop notes. The hops are more assertive than the base flavor, which is pretty tamed. Still not lacking in the flavor department. For a 4.7% session ale it is pretty pungent and strong tasting, mostly from the bitter hops. It goes down easy and remains lively on the tongue with high carbonation. Overall a good session IPA. It has an assertive hop profile with big herbal, grassy, pine, and light lemon citrus flavors.
