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.

American hops front and center . Aromas of grapefruit and tangerine lead into an abundance of fresh pine and tropical fruit notes followed by a crisp, resinous bitterness. The complex hop profile is supported by a firm malt presence to create an incredibly flavorful and well-balanced IPA.
