16 ounce can into a tulip glass. Canned 12/20/16, had 2/2/17.

Pours a medium golden yellow, a bit hazy, with a one and a half inch foamy head and a good amount of foamy lacing. The smell is citrus hops- grapefruit, mango, orange, tangerine, pineapple, and an almost equal amount of pine and resin. Light malt and yeast, light, dank, green onion when warm. The aroma does not fade much throughout the can. Really nice aroma. The taste is grapefruit, pine, some spruce, orange, mango, lemon, less pineapple and tangerine than the nose, light but sufficient malt, some yeast. A light hop bitterness up front, that mellows at the finish. Smooth, a light but substantial body, refreshing, well carbonated.

This is the real deal, with Citra hops bursting with aroma and flavor. It impressively all stays intact the whole time. An effective malt base. I may be late to the game, but it's well worth a purchase, and is a real everyday beer.

This beer is all around amazing. From the aroma to the mouthfeel to the finish. I live in California, so every time I see this beer I buy it. Pretty hoppy for a pale, which I love. One of the easiest drinking pale ales I've had.

All aboard the hype train!! Wow, one of the biggest slaps in the face of pure hype bs. Mediocre appearance, smell and feel with a lovely metallic taste. I've had Advil dissolve on my tongue that tasted better than this. Not even within arms reach of Zombie Dust in every facet.
