Can dated 07/18/17 enjoyed on Aug. 17th. Pours a light gold with small white head. Smell is Fruity, hoppy, piney. Getting stone fruit too. Taste is a burst of tropical fruit, hop oil, resin, juicy citrus, peach, apricot. Mouthfeel is very soft with medium carb, very refreshing. No hint of any alcohol but has a little bite going down. This one is one of the better IPA's out there if you can get it fresh. Tomorrow I'm grabbing the other two six packs I saw at my grocer if they're still there. Almost a perfectly balanced beer.

Picked up a bottle at the supermarket. Poured into a pint glass. Beautiful dark gold with nice head. You can smell the citrus. Tasted is hoppy and a little fruit and slightly bitter. Loving it. Easy to drink and I will definitely get more.

One of the best I've had. Sweet, citrus, great balance of bitter and smooth.

12 oz can into a pint glass. Pours a clear golden amber with a 3 finger head. Nice lacing remains on the side. Quite inviting. Smell is a citrus and pineapple...very sweet - almost too much so! Taste is oh so nice - strong citrus hops follows all the way down the palette. Medium/heavy feel to it but very drinkable. This is a clear winner among IPA aficionados.

Clear beer, drank it while grilling on a warm day in the backyard. Clean, crisp, and smooth. Very easy to drink and enjoyable

Pours a deep amber with a one inch, fluffy white head that was well retained and left lots of lacing. Smells and tastes of grapefruit, pineapple, pine and orange rind. Rather dry mouth feel, finishes with moderate bitterness, well carbonated, clean, crisp and refreshing.
