Just like everyone else says... It's awesome... Best straight from the can like it says... Best fresh as well, even though it's still delicious after a couple of weeks.. Definitely a beer you must try at least once..

poured a orange/yellowish color with a bubbly white head. smells like like grapefruit and earthy pine. taste was almost so grapefruity it was tart and sour. amazingly smooth and each sip grew with more hops. Texture was kind of thick. Def overrated in my eyes for a double ipa but I would say this is top 15 dipas in my book
