Pours a clear gold with a foamy pure-white head - great retention and lacing. Aroma of great astringency - overripe pineapple and mango - a lot of peach sweetness, some pink grapefruit and mild resin. Hints of strawberry as well. More light biscuit malt comes through in the flavor as well as huge citrus and tropical fruit astringency.

This is a wonderful beer-- I think that it's almost beyond the IPA style.
In someways w/o knowing that it's an IPA -- I wanted to call it a Bock but
then again it is an IPA.

It produced a flowery and fruity nose--

First sip added to the notion of the flower-shop nose.

Body galore!

Maybe there's no malt in the brew-- but I swear there's a sweetness- that loaf of bread.
The hops are there too in abundance.

Even with the 9.4% ABV I can put down the four pack in a sitting while in total beer ecstacy
