Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a cloudy yellow color with tons of sediment and a large white head. The aroma is floral hops and some fruit. The taste is citrus and hops.

I'm really liking the smell of this beer right away. Quite citrus and some dankness fruity. First sip the citrus was lighter than I would have thought which quickly gives way to a dry malt finish with some light bitterness coming through. Good beer but really no sweetness/fruitiness coming through from what I detected on the nose. Feel like I could drink this easily and alcohol content hidden. Like it.

Poured into an old 12oz shoe. Smell was musty but I think it may have been the shoe. Definitely smelled some tropical notes too. Jokes aside about what I was pouring it into this is one of my favorite readily available IPA's. It has just the right amount of hoppiness and fruitiness to be utterly smooth and flavorful to drink. The ABV is both high and covered well. Just a great beer!
