This was poured into a shifter. The appearance was a orange (peach skin), color with a thin white foamy head atop of the beer. Thin delicate sticky lacing clings to the glass. The aroma starts off with sweet tangerines, grapefruits and peaches and slides over top of a nice caramel backbone. The flavor starts sticky with the blend of the hops to the malts, and adds a light bitter resin for balance. There’s a sly dry peachy to caramel aftertaste leading into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Carbonation runs light. Bitter resin shows some harshness but not too much. Overall, it’s a good West coast styled DIPA that I could have again.

willisread (2280) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 9, 2016
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a clear orange with a finger of head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving a thin ring around the glass edge. Lovely orange aromas with some tangerine and light caramel and pine resin. Very citrus forward in that classic west coast way. Some honey and caramel on the palate, but with fine, prickly carbonation and even though it is balanced it still feels light in the mouth. Bitter finish with more orange and citrus notes. Very nice.

kidmartinek (4628) - austin, Texas, USA - AUG 3, 2016
Clear copper with a golden tint. Small white ring head. Weak lace lies only near the top of the half pint. Aroma is piny and finishes with a bit of caramel. Flavor is bitter fruit and medium all around. Very drinkable. I guess it’s awesome if youre trying to get ur buzz on in rapid fashion.

mathieuc (3256) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 2, 2016
Bottle at Fraunces Tavern in FiDi. Pours a clear golden with a medium white head that leaves very nice lacing. Nose is of caramel and sugary fruits, like you rolled some peach slices in some white sugar. Taste is moderately sweet and moderately bitter with some good pine notes. Doesn’t feel too boozy at all. Moderate body and carbonation, lingering bitter piny finish. Nicely built really and quite enjoyable!

Hoprider (403) - DENMARK - JUL 29, 2016
Pours an almost clear colour with a white one finger foam. Noses pretty malty.. Sadly. This is a few months old but that is the reality of buying us ipa’s in Europe, they are rarely fresh and that is a real shame. And we landed on the Moon and shit. Tastes pretty malty too. Seems like any dankness or hoppy fruityness has just disappeared. Might not be a fair rating but what can you do?

tmoreau (3628) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 20, 2016
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co. and snifter served displaying a clear, orangey gold color, with a fluffy layer of soft white head foam, and web-like lacing. The nose was sweet, malty creaminess, with esters as tropical fruit, grapefruit, pineapple, and light resin. Medium+ bodied, with decent carbonation, and a little silkiness to the mouthfeel, the taste added a strong, citrus & rind bitterness, smoothed by a touch of malty sweetness, and intensified by a warming, but non-boozy alcohol presence. Solid DIPA.
