Pours very cloudy apricot/orange hue with a small, rocky, parchment colored head. Good retention of this with spotty lacing coating the glass.

A juicy malt sweetness gives off caramel and a natural syrupy aroma that imitates a fresh fruit stand. Hops are apricot, peach, orange citrus and some pine and earthy residue. Sweet and underlying booze.

Big malt here, caramel sweetness that constantly dips into the toffee range, candy coating the fruitiness of the hops. Like the nose orange citrus forward with ripe apricot and yellow peaches. Pine and a large, smooth building alcohol washes over and through the finish where it picks up some grass and drying.

Above average body, with smooth carbonation, barely enough to move the malts along. This beer acts its strength, flaunting a well integrated alcohol set. Surprisingly dry and scrubbing on the finish.

A DIPA that plays up a bit, juicy, boozy and sweet, loaded with stone fruit and deep orange citrus. Well crafted and balanced, somewhat of a dinosaur when you look at the hop profile. Still if you like peaches and apricots this is a must try DIPA.

Major residual sweetness. Solid color and bitterness, but the nose has some excessive sweetness. Almost an artificial grape nose and taste. Their regular IPA is awesome so I'm hoping I got a bad or old batch. Will review again when I get a fresh bottle.

A – Cloudy orange color with good lacing

S – Stong orange, citrus with pine on the nose. Very small malt but with the seven hops a great hop blend.

T - pine, small yeast with the hops balanced to give a fresh all around taste. The big thing I get is orange.

M – medium heavy and some carbonation. Lingers more than I like but pretty solid for a DIPA

O – Very solid, not over the top on hops or malt. Has nice orange and citrus notes, but nothing too deep or complex.
