12 oz can. Pours bright golden, thin off-white head has good retention, spotty lace. Great balance of toasted bread malt and sharp piney hops, with the hops winning out. Crisp dry finish. Good stuff

Poured from a bomber into a snifter. No bottle date evident.

A: Pours reddish amber in color with a one-inch, foamy, cream colored head with minimal retention. Thick, white, billowy lacing throughout.

S: Nose consists of mostly citrus and tropical fruit aromas including grapefruit, orange, pineapple, and passionfruit. Milder floral and piney hop notes as well.

T: Heavier notes of grapefruit and other citrusy fruits accompanied by a milder tropical fruit blend. Finishes with a nice piney and resiny hop bitterness.

F: Light bodied, smooth, and crisp with good carbonation.

O: Overall, a good IPA. Well balanced. Tons of hops for a lighter bodied brew. Would love to try this fresh from the source.

Served in a pint from the tap.

Appearance: Deep amber with heavy gold tint to the body. Extra bubbles creates a subtle head coming off white maybe half a finger's length.

Smell: citrus scent and light Ligt floral.

Taste: floral citrus and super bitter. Malts give you a lot, almost overdosed on them.

Mouth: sticky and extra bubbles.

Overall: Descent brew, would be a mainstay in my fridge if I had easy access to it.
