Drank from a can. Decent carbonation and head that stuck around in the can. Nose of grapefruit and citrus hops with some semblance of malt, but it wasn't overwhelming or bitter. Taste follows nose with west coast IPA notes of grapefruit and citrus with some pine on the back end. Medium-light body and carbonation with no metallic aftertastes, indicating a decent can was used in canning.
It was better than the first time I had it 3 years ago. Good summer beer that isn't too heavy or complex - straight forward hops that don't make the beer overly bitter. Drinkable and just a little bitter.

Between a lager and an amber in color. White head. Tastes of grapefruit and citrus come through pretty strongly. Less intimidating and more drinkable than some IPAs.

Poured out a clear, golden-yellow color with a small head of white foam. It smelled of pine, orange and grapefruit. It tasted of sweet caramel, piney hops with a citrus bite. It was crisp and sharp.

Head was thin and disappeared quickly. Smell was strange for me. Slightly metallic, slightly tomatoe? Also strong malt smell. Taste was quite a shock. An amazingly balanced malt to hop ratio. Malt hits first, but leaves a wonderful amount of hops on the tongue afterwards.

Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a golden/orange color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of pine, some fruits. Taste is piney, tropical fruits, light resin, medium bitterness. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall is a refreshing and enjoyable beer.
