Pours yellow/orange/green, opaque, with a decent starting snow-white head that quickly diminishes to a light white covering.
Smells like crushed hop juice. Pine, pineapple, melon.
Tastes like thick fresh-squeezes hop juice.
One of the best IPA’s ever. Current favorite. The previous run was Citra-only, which topped this. Hard to image because of how good it is.
No lactose. God bless.

Pours a sort of dingy yellow/orange that reminds me of the cans of dole pineapple juice my grandma used to always have in her fridge. I think this is sorta what some in the style are going for but it is very much a turn off for me. However the head is a lightly yellow tinged white mountain of stable foam that persists and looks so solid you could rest a coin on it.
Smell is an amazing burst of pineapple and mango that filled the room as soon as I cracked the can. Once in the glass it is pouring out all that as well as peach candy, grapefruit and tangerine. Really bright vibrant aromas, very inviting.
Taste is peachy sweet with a nice little pineapple bite. The sweetness that leads on the tongue blends nicely into a bitterness that is first reminiscent of mango, then grapefruit, then grassy/herbaceous and leaves a sort of vaguely astringent floral taste at the back of my tongue.
Mouthfeel is very creamy, very smooth. There is a lot of body and yet it doesn't overwhelm, the cloud in the name seems very apt here. It certainly fills the mouth but doesn't leave anything much behind.
Overall this strikes me as a very nice example of the style. Fruity and tropical this beer is a wonderful delivery method for modern aroma hops.
