Pretty tasty. You get the citrus tropical fruit nose that you get on most IPAs these days but it's a little more assertive in the bitterness category. I like that! Plus I'm a fan of beers in a can. A really solid backyard, lawnmower, bbq beer.

Beer had a great copper hue. Immediately you were hit with a nice hoppy smell which is to be expected from an IPA. Taste was not as hoppy as expected but still very good. Nice after taste with not too much bitterness. Overall this is a wonderful beer and folks who do not like IPA's will enjoy the beer!
