12oz bottle poured into an oversized tulip. Best by 7/14/13
S - Pine, resiny, citrus. Faint biscuit malt. I agree with the description of peachy aroma.
A - Tall rocky off-white head atop a deep golden beer. Perfect clarity. Tons of sticky lacing.
T - Bitter pine hops show up instantly. There is underlying bready/biscuity malt throughout almost the whole taste. Hop flavor is a large segment and has pine and melon like flavor. Right up to my threshold of sharp bitterness without becoming unpleasant. Crisp and refreshing dryness. Some watermelon flavor lasts into the aftertaste but later leaves me with an almost flavorless bitterness.
M - Medium-full body, very dry, light to medium-light carbonation.
O - Great looking brew with a beautiful sticky head that will not quit. Hops are the only focus of this beer, little balance to it. On a positive note it has a unique hop profile and shows off many good qualities. Pine and citrus aroma yet different than typical DIPAs. Taste was bitter all over with a great dryness. Fun take on a style that sometimes is pigeon holed.

13 oz bottle from Tipples. Pours a beautiful golden orange color with a fluffy white one finger head. Nice floral hop aroma , bready malts, citrus peel, grass, pine. Flavor is nice bitter pine, floral notes, lightly sweet bready malts. Body is medium to light, somewhat dry, bitterness on the tongue, with medium plus carbonation. This goes down very easy. A slight dirtiness on the finish is my only complaint, and it is very strange. But an otherwise solid DIPA that’s easy to find, and nice and light for the style. Just a weird flavor here and there that I can’t put my finger on.
