Might have got a bad can...malt bomb that foamed like crazy when I poured it. No hop profile to speak of. Will adjust review when I revisit...but for now, I have to rate according to style/description.

7.3% abv according to the can. 12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours a transparent golden with a fluffy off-white head that leaves great retention and lacing. The aromas are very nice. Lots of tropical notes with some citrus in the mix as well. Lots of pineapple, peach and mango. Subtle malts. The flavors are bold and follow the nose. More of those tropical fruits along with grapefruit. Fresh pine needles in the mix. Some pine resin too. Bitter finish, but there are some malts to cut it down. Mouthfeel is nice. It's medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Creamy and fluffy. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Very smooth.

This is a very nice IPA. Great use of simcoe. It's nice to see this in cans. Well done.
