What, how have I not rated this after drinking it many, many times. Pure good hoppiness in a can. Citrus/grapefruit, pine and just good hops!

Aromas of citrus hops & flowers. Bitter tending towards too much but remains balanced. A superb beer but probably there’s even better.

Nose of catnip, slight skunkiness; pale orange cloudy, lasting lacey head; slight sweet hoppy flavor throughout blends well with expected lasting bitter finish; medium carbonation; all around great beer!

Pour a beautiful hazy/murky light orange, with a very small white head.
Aroma has plenty of tropical fruity hoppy notes like peach, grapefruit, slight pineapple, slight unripe lemons. Some hopjuice going on in this bad boy.
A Big malty/caramelly backbone here as well, and balances this one out beautifully. This thing sure is crisp!!
The taste is pretty darn bitter, with some slight sweet notes, but really crispy bitter. Hot dang this tastes good.
Medium bodied, with a pretty lively carbonation.
A huge thanks to Dr. Doodle for sending me this unexpected treat!!
Oh boy this is an easy drinker…

Can from Freddy at Bev4Less. Thanks Freddy! Open the can and don’t pour into a glass, just like the can tells me not to. Aromas are hop rich, surprisingly dank and forward (I thought it would smell less like a west coast offering), with some biscuit malt already apparent. Taste is very, very good. Clean, crisp, ALL of 120 IBUs assault my tongue and roof of my mouth. If you don’t love DIPA/IIPA style, with all the crazy bitterness it can bring, this won’t do it for you in the same way Pliny, or even a beer like Maine Lunch, will. This is not the crazy malty overhopped rendering of the style, all too common, but a balanced, bitter, bready, sweet craftbrew with balance and intensity in alternate, and proportionate, quantities. Really pleasing. Glad I got to try it. I ended up pouring it into a glass, just because I had to see what it looked like. Definitely murky in appearance, which is apparently how it is supposed to look when fresh. Overall, good yum.

Sweet, with a very broad palate. Has some very dank and resinous flavors from the hops that are met with some slight citrus. I'm surprised that this beer has such a biscuity malt presence, but overall very good.

Thoroughly enjoyable. What else needs to be said? Nice malt balance...hoppy, sweet, complex, beautiful.

Poured from can. Hazy gold-orange, medium small white head. Wonderful aroma of citrus hops, flowers. Medium body. No alcohol, bit of carbonation. Flavor matches aroma with addition of some malty balance and is pretty intense without overhwhelming the palate. Bitter as expected but not ridiculous. Very smooth. Don’t know about best ever or anything but a great beer. Stands out for cramming in all that flavor and complexity but somehow staying really drinkable.
