4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2013 Pours brilliant amber, slight haze and a creamy head that fell off pretty fast but left some nice lacing behind. The color is remarkable like the blush on a ripe peach. Nose is tropical fruits, mango, pineapple, apricot. The nose is like sweet perfume with floral hops and a fat malt character that yields up honey, caramel and cracker. Taste is extraordinary with plump, juicy ripe fruits and herbal hops light and earthy. It’s got a a sour zing and is resiny and dry. There’s a touch of alcohol on the palate but it’s inviting and warming. The malt is steady and sweet with some crusty bread mid palate and the hops splash up bitter with some light pine at the end for a dry finish. This is a fantastic DIPA that’s abundant with fruit, loaded with malt and exhilarating with bitter hops. Stupendous!

Pours a very pretty and clean golden amber with two fingers of sticky eggshell white head. Nose is super awesome, lots of sticky tropical fruit and citrus. Spicy/peppery/zesty notes with lots of resin and juicy fruit. Very fruity and citrusy flavor, super juicy. Dry and light medium bodied. Fruity finish with a lasting bitterness.

An "IIPA as expected"! Fine brew---but certainly nothing unique! Clear amber color with average head and body. Hops were both fruity and herbal.
