This is just remarkable beer. It also points out how two beers can be so different yet equally fantastic despite being same category. Hazy apricot and gold pour. Fine carbonation that dissipates and leaves a light lacing along the surface of the beer. In both taste and smell, it is the anti-Heady and I don't mean that one is better than the other. All soft tropical fruits jumping out of the glass. Mango, pineapple, floral a bit. Just soft and gorgeous. Taste and mouthfeel follow perfectly. Again nothing similar to the in your face hops of Heady. Just soft and gorgeous hops layering on the tongue. So happy to have had the opportunity to try this marvelous beer. Seek it out, trade for it and savor it n

Amazing surprise beer included in a box from TheSevenDuffs.

A: Pours slightly murky apricot colour with 3 fingers of bone white head which lingers and leaves clumps of lacing along the sides of the glass.

S: Bright and clean and sweet malts with citrus fruits, musk melon, musky mango and pineapple followed by hints of fresh cut pine on the finish.

T: Incredibly smooth and slightly buttery up front. and balanced with tropical fruits, citrus and pine that pair against middle notes of caramel malts. The sweet middle note slowly evolves on the finish to citrus bitters, notably grapefruit.

M: Medium bodied and incredibly smooth with medium carbonation.

O: Only of the most balanced DIPAs I've had with tropical and citrus fruits equally matched by caramel notes and a lightly bitter finish. I'm extremely lucky to have had a chance to try.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

The appearance is a Dark orange, like an apricot, with a white mist of light bright white foam.

The nose is so so fruity and strong with tropical fruit punch, banana, mango, lemons, apricot, grapefruit and then a great caramel malt backdrop.

The palate catches that same fruitiness of tropical fruit, mango, apricot, lemon and grapefruit but catches a little coconut as well. There is some honey but fans of herbal hops won't be disappointed with the subtle dank herbal hop tones underneath.

The feel is light, easy and drinkable but some alcohol heat exists if you drink it quickly.

Rarely do I find a beer that matches the hype but this one lived up to its billing.
