Poured into a pint glass from a 12oz can. Pours a hazy burnt orange with a decent off white head that falls quickly. It has lots of swimmers floating in it. Leaves a slight lace throughout. Smells very hoppy with citrus overtones. Very much an IPA. Tast is spectacular. Lightly piney and hoppy with hints of every citrus fruit imaginable. Has a very Ipa front end, tart in the middle, and finish of iced tea with lemon. This is a very good IPA. I hope I find it again.

The look is standard light orange/gold IPA color, with a modest amount of head. The smell is also what you'd expect for an IPA. juicy & citrusy. The taste is outstanding. There's the sour flavor, as promised on the can, but also with the citrusy & slightly sweet IPA flavor. It's a great combination, balanced and not over-hopped. The mouthfeel is Medium bodied, but very drinkable. I really enjoyed this one.

Scored a can of this and it just kind of sat around for 4-6 months, then I finally got around to banging it. Pours essentially like a normal ipa, has the golden and light amber color thing going, small 1/5" white head that doesn't stand up and chill, it appears and departs in a short amount of time. Aroma was juicy, seemed like a mixture of Chinook hops and kettle sour clean.

Taste was much the same, it was sour, it had a little bit of that C hop bite, light bodied, easy drinking, not overly acidic. What is not to like? Its even a little sweet which I did not expect nor would I expect to enjoy, but it worked here. I think this is plenty appropriate for a daytime warm weather beer, best enjoyed outdoors. Did I mention there's a decent amount of citrus flavor to it? Low cost entry point, this is a good beer for people of all walks.

Looked good and juicy, but clearer than I expected. The nose was good and juicy, and the taste was really interesting. Sour, but not overly so, with a bit of an IPA base and very juicy. The only downside is that I had this as a Cask beer at a bar, and I really think this would have been better cold. I think more interesting flavors would have been brought out, instead of it seeming so mellow (which wasn't necessarily a bad thing).
