12oz. can served in a nonic. Pours a dull, straw gold with a hazy clarity and a tight, quarter inch, bright white head embedded with pinpricks. Nose reveals notes of earth and a peppery quality. Taste consistent with nose; however, a burst of tangerine and notes of honey cut through the flavor profile. Mouthfeel is light in body with a lively carbonation and a kiss of acidity. Overall, a really nice single-hopped IPA. Well-crafted as expected.

12 oz can into a tulip glass.

Oh man, such a gorgeous beer. Pours a hazy, almost opaque bright gold color with 2 fingers of effervescent white head. Excellent retention on this one, leaving a lovely crown of lacing as it ultimately dissipates into a thin sheet of foam.

The aroma brings notes of orange sherbet, candied peach, grapefruit, fruit stripe gum, and earthy pine. Subtly dank and floral throughout. Just a hint of biscuit malt on the back.

The flavor is very citrusy on the front, bringing notes of oranges, grapefruit, and orange cream. Then comes a wave of peaches and bubblegum. Finishes faintly piney and earthy. There's a subtle, biscuit malt backbone.

The feel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Creamy, soft, smooth, and exceptionally drinkable.

Overall, this is an absolutely fantastic IPA. Shaun Hill is quite possibly the King of the world at bringing out the best out of a hop in a single hop beer. This is no exception. Just wonderful.
