Pours deep golden-orange with a small fluffy off-white head which dissipates fairly quickly. Almost no cloudiness. Nice aroma; I think I can smell my favourite hop? Mosaic. That said, the can says this IPA is lupulin laden & the can does not say which hops are used. Did they use any whole hops? I do not know. Smell and taste are as desribed on can - forward tropical hops with some floral & grassiness; just hinting at dankness. Smooth somewhat juicy mouthfeel with any bitterness being very quick to be overshadowed by the citrus from the hops. An excellent IPA; I can see why this is highly rated, but it doesn't quite live up to my very favourites from the NE region.
