Right out of the can you get a copper-ish colored liquid with particles floating in a Brownian dance, a little disconcerting.

The smell was a deep IPA-like scent of very robust hops (as advertised) leading to a mouthfeel that was medium-bodied and light on the carbonation.

Overall an nice deep toasted malt sense, grainy, and dry grassy hops round out. O: Overall a toasted bready malt backing with some stinky and sticky hops add a small insight to the smelly, stinky hippie.

Could of been more pungent like, dry and bitter and mostly decent. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy deep orange/amber/light copper color with a 2 finger fairly dense and rocky cream colored head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a large cap that lasts.

T: Dank and pungent flowery hops, dry and bitter, reminds me a bit of columbus.Light-moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/earthy hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the balanced bitter/drying finish. It is what it is....refreshing, good taste, good beer to have with a burger or pizza. Smell is of caramel malts, hops are present as well.Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/grainy/sticky, and slightly resinous balanced mouthfeel that is great. Really impressive juicy, vibrant, and lightly dank hops; with a nice complex balancing malt backbone. Taste is hops, some malts, little of the caramel detected in the aroma, a tad bitter for the style.
