Very good! Nice slighty hazy amber colour with an off white head and nice lacing. Smells mildly hoppy and citrusy and fruity. Taste is similar with maybe a touch more fruit but at no time sweet. Very well balanced with great mouthfeel. BB may need to employ Chino away from the Deftones if he can keep coming up with recipes this good. Oh yeah, and the art work on the can is top notch. Prost!

Finally got my hands two sixers. 16 oz can into the glass showed a slight cloudy appearance so all good so far. Aroma is bouquet of citrus. Taste backs that up. Well balanced amount of hops with no bitterness. The feeling left me grabbing another one. Looking forward to the remainder.

Pours a yellow with a white haze and a white head. Smells of citrus, hops, and light malt. Tastes of orange and grapefruit zest/juice, light tropical fruits, fresh hops, some lemon, and a nice malt base. Medium in both body and carbonation. Overall a very tasty IPA.

Appearance: hazy golden yellow in color with a 2" fluffy head that lasted a bit.

Smell: orange and some floral tones rise from the glass.

Taste: caramel, orange, some fresh bread, a bit of grass, along with some earthy and floral hop bitterness.

Poured into a surly glass at 45 degrees. Appearance a one finger light white head with good retention. The head does leave some lacing on the glass as it dissipates. The color of the beer is around SRM 5 a straw color with some orange hues. The clarity of the beer is hazy, but some carbonation is visible. A very beautiful looking beer.

Nose: Grapefruit, pine, resin, lots of floral and touch of tropical fruit. Lightly roasted malt, a touch of caramel, earthy, and yeast notes.

Taste: Flowery, grapefruit, resin, woody, touch of tropical fruit, with a light roasted malt, earthy, and yeast note.

Mouthfeel: A medium light body beer with high carbonation, medium plus astringency, and long finish.

Overall: This is fantastic IPA great flavors overall, the only thing I noticed was, it was touch thin for such a great profile.
