Appearance: A huge head forms above the clear goldenstraw liquid; sticks impressively and leaves quite a few clumps of lace

Smell: Tropical fruit, with powerful pineapple and mango tones

Taste: The tropical fruit tones jut forward with shortbread malt building underneath; not the most bitter IPA I have tasted but it is delightfully fruity

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I was a little nervous about waiting so long to open up the can but this beer was a true delight

Thanks, Ljudsignal, for the opportunity

Been waiting to do this for a while, great that they actually label each as a different batch, like Stone Enjoy by. Also craft beer cans, yay!

Pours a big fluffy head that hits 1.5 fingers then fades semi slowly with nice foamy lacing, mostly hazy semi clear honey golden color.

Nose explodes, and I mean so much hop eruption! Reminds me of what Julius used to be as that seems to have toned down a bit in the past year or so, tons of citrus, orange juice, and orange cream, some grapefruit pith and papaya like tropical notes, faint resin and musty wet hop, little orange peel, touch of juicy malt.

Taste brings more citrus, lots of orange juice and orange creamy, again like what Julius used to be, with a nice rind and grapefruit pith, a little herbal and minty hop note, a graoefruit mint and peppery like hop note, bright citrus and fruit, with a little grapefruit and papaya like notes again. It has a nice juicy fluffy malt base, not quite toasty but nice balancing malt base with pretty good bitterness. Hops get a little spicy and earthy on the back end, finishing pretty bitter and chewy spicy hop characters, lots more orange peel and rind, a little pith, faint grapefruit and fruity notes, and pretty dry.

Mouth is med bod, nice fluffy carb.

Overall quite nice, lots of nice citrus, great hops, explosive nose, good bitterness and balance with the malts just taking a back seat to letting the nice hops showcase.
