L: Had this beer on-tap at Growlers to Go - Short Pump, poured into a pint glass. Had a yellow / brown color and a very cloudy consistency. There was a quarter inch of creamy, fairly long-lasting head. Pretty good lacing.

S: A very nice aroma of hops, citrus fruit, malt, and tropical fruit.

T: Tasted of some citrus fruit (orange, in particular), light malt notes (mostly in the finish), some hops (just enough to make things interesting), and a bit of tropical fruit (papaya). A focused, subtle, and likable flavor. None of its ingredients really one-up the others, but rather a good balance is achieved.

F: A decent amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A solidly made, easy to drink IPA. Worth a look.

There is no date listed on the can.

Appearance: The beer is opaque and beige-gold colored. It has a short white frothy head with good retention and good lacing.

Aroma: There is a light aroma of grapefruit and a bit of alcohol.

Taste: It has a bit of orange pith flavor. There is a very light bit of pine in the aftertaste. While drinking the beer the flavors compound over time improving the strength of the flavor but they remain very monotone.

Mouthfeel: It is smooth and easy to drink with a medium-low bitterness.

Overall: It's a decent enough beer but there wasn't enough flavor or aroma. It's worth drinking if you already have it but it's not something I'd likely pick up again. I wouldn't turn it down if somebody handed me one.
