16 OZ can, received in a trade. Poured into a Sierra Nevada IPA glass.

Bright orange in the glass, with a frothy nice white head; lacing the glass as it slowly dissipates.
Smells of ripe pineapples, tangerines, passionfruit, with a sweet malt lingering.
Tastes incredible. Huge citrus notes, with a punch in the mouth of hops flavor, touch of bitterness; sweet underlying malt balancing everything together. Drinks way below it's ABV. Super crushable and goes down way too easy. Great IPA here. My first Pipeworks brew and this is making me want more and more.

Absolutely loved this beer. Glad I was able to try it. Will actively be seeking ways to get more!

Can. Pretty beer. Nice head. Bright, pale orange. Aroma is bursting with citrus forward happiness. Sweet malt underneath. Flavor is sharp citrus! Very direct. Initial tang of super hoppiness but it's manageably bitter. Good, been waiting to try this for a while.
