Poured from a 1 pint 6oz Bomber. I can now buy this in Canada.
Pours a hazy golden amber with a thick white head and tons of sticky lacing.
Nice hoppy nose a real nice IPA that is all i need to say after over 1300 reviews.

12oz can into a pint glass

L: Pours a hazy gold color, with a fairly thin 1-finger head that dissipates rather quickly, leaving average lacing.

S: Decent citrus nose upfront, with some malt.

T/F: Definitely hop-forward, with a strong citrus-hop flavor dominating the front, but it has a nice malt back-bone that results in a nicely, but not overly, bitter finish. Overall medium body with an appropriate level of carbonation.

O: Very nice, well balanced IPA. The look and smell is on the average side, but it more than makes up for it with an excellent flavor and feel.
