12 oz. can into a snifter. Pours a very clear copper, like looking at a shiny new penny. A puffy 1 finger head of off-white foam sits atop. Nice aroma on this one - a strong pineapple scent along with grapefruit, pine, apples, and mango. Medium weight and creamy. Very sweet, with strong notes of grapefriut, oranges, and pineapple up front. Some pine and hop bitterness on the back end. Nice malty finish.

Very enjoyable. I was hoping for a little more bitterness and pine presence. My can had about 2 months on it, though, so maybe drinking one that's fresher will change my perspective. Still a great beer, though. Lots of nice fruit. I'd buy it again.

Good flavorful IPA. Nice mix of hops without being overwhelming. Finishes relatively smooth.

This beer embodies everything you want from an IPA. The hops have a touch of citrus flavor combined with a bit of earthiness and a slight bitterness. The beer is hop forward and brings a bit of the malt flavor up front and then finishes with a slight bitterness. This is the type of beer that both avid and novice IPA drinkers alike would find enjoyable.
