Poured a yellow gold with good head and lacing. This sucker has a nose on it, tons of pine, hops, grapefruit. The taste is full on piney hops with a solid citrus mix and some floral notes. Enjoyed this one from a can, it was pretty fresh and bursting with flavor, was so awesome on a hot day. This is a solid medium beer, if you like flavor give this a try, its amazing.

End of the work day and didn't want to drive across town, I decided to stop by the Smart & Final near my house. This was on sale and thought I'd take her for a spin.. 12oz bottle poured into a tall glass. Nice head, still hangs around until the very end. Smell is great, taste is better than anticipated. Not too bitter. Overall, a solid IPA you can find just about anywhere.

Like you've died and gone to heaven. I've only had it from the bottle; I can't even imagine how good it would be from the tap. Complex, aggressive, sensual.
