Pours from can into glass. Color is orange copper hue. Smell is ripe white grapes, tropical stone fruits and fairly faint. Taste is White grape skins, peach, mango, papaya, bit of citrus and pine. Real mellow profile of hops and the bitterness is dialed way down along with a strong supporting malt bill. This is My kind of IPA style but there's a little something missing from it. Flavors a tad too muted to be top notch.

Nose is light tropical fruits. Taste is a ton of peaches, a touch of citrus, but the peaches dominate. Fairly balanced malt backbone. Clean finish that leave sdelicious peachy hops lingering on the palate. Good beer. Would buy again.

12 oz can into glass

Slightly hazy orange copper colored, white head. Good lacing. Pine resin hop aroma. Taste is hop dominated, but balanced with some caramel malt. Good flavor, sticky mouthfeel.

Slightly cloudy out of the can. Very hoppy and somewhat bitter. Quite refreshing on a 105 degree day in Phoenix!
