This beer I so good for the price. lol his beer has been out for quite some time and one of my all time favorites.

The look: NICE amber color with about a little over a finger of head.

Smelll: Smell aid so good with nice Hop aroma as well as a little pineapple, Grapefruit and Mango flavor on the nose.

Taste: very nice well balanced beer with 75 ibu and 7.0 ABV and very drinkable. Has nice citrus notes a little malt flavor and a very well balanced Hop flavor

Feel: Not to heavy just a very nice beer with perfect amount of head. Honestly a favorite for me.

Overall :This beer is absolutely delicious , just so well balanced on a nice citrus flavors and perfect amount of hops. Pick this up. This is a Great beer at 7.99 a six pack. I'd pay more for it. Absolute winner for me.

Gold and hazy with a nice white lingering head. Good amount of malt, lemon, golden apple and pine on the nose. Very abundant and balanced flavors of pine, tropical fruit and fauna. Mouthfeel is soft with a nice malty finish that lingers. The more I drank this beer, the more I liked it. Good stuff.

Pours a hazy burnt orange, nice lacing in Belgian beer glass, Smells of hops, citrus,fresh pine,esters. Taste is smooth,full bodied and crisp.(not too heavy) Nice quality malt backbone. Easy to crush several. Feels like an almost perfect IPA. Overall this is a beer I will keep an eye out for, and I highly recommend.

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.
