3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Super nice and crisp golden coloured body with a perfect, two centimetre tall pale white head. Ridiculously good aroma of fresh hops showing passionfruit, pine and flowers with more sugars, a touch of malt and a very sweet freshness of all those tropical fruits, especially the tart green passionfruit. Light-bodied; Fresh flavour of tropical fruits, light hops and a touch of malt. Some floral and grassy hops are noticeable at the tail end and a little bite from the alcohol is even perceivable at the finish. Aftertaste is fairly subdued with a floral and grassy finish showing some dryness. Overall, a very well-balanced beer that shows lighter sides but also shows a lot of tropical fruit and floral notes - nice to try! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 08-November-2014 for US$2,25 sampled at home in Washington on 25-February-2015.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Apricot colored pour, white head. A bit fruity and sweeter than I usually like my DIPAs. Some dank and tropical fruity hops dancing around. Lively carbonation. Certainly not bad at all.

Bottle at home in CT - picked up at New Beer Distributors. Pours perfectly clear gold, effervescent, with a frothy white head. The aroma holds some citrusy hops, mild piss, lean pale malts. Light-medium sweet flavor with pleasant peach notes, some tangerine, orange, light pine needles, straw, pale bread. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Nicely balanced on the finish, clean and juicy, with moderate pale malt sweetness, slight oily resins, baked hay, more peach and tangerine. A lovely low octane IPA.
