This is a truly "pale" IPA that hits you in the face with citrusy hops but also has a decent malt backbone to balance. The biggest drawbacks are (1) a pretty thin body; and (2) a general lack of complexity or depth. Still, a decent IPA.

Poured from 16oz can. Pale golden, very clear, small head, good lacing. Nose is straw and pine, light citrus. Flavor shows more citrus up front, but then piney hops and bitterness take over. Very dry finish.

Poured from a 16 oz can straight to my face.
Hint of honey in this most recent can.
This is a tough one. Seems like every can I get, the taste varies, within the same 4 pack....
Reasonable price and will get your ripped; no doubt!!!

Pours gold. Foamy, short, Whitehead that last a while with light lacing.

Smells Pine, bready malt and citrus.

Taste candied fruit, light citrus peel, bready and Pine. Finish is dry with a citrus peel linger. Medium body and smooth medium carbonation.
