Thanks to dukedebourgogne for this one.

A-Golden tinged copper with a medium white head that reduces to a thin cap and leaves nice lace.

S-Intoxicating hop aroma of peaches and tangerine. A sweet backing of complex malt....nothing outstanding, not caramel, not bready, just a bit of sweetness to balance out the hops...but just a bit.

T-Mmmmm...West Coast hop yumminess! Peaches and citrus...of tangerine and orange.So freakin good it's crazy!

M-Medium-light body, crisp, residual sweetness and nice lasting hop bitterness.

D-Outta this world...with almost 6 months on this bottle it still drinks like a champ....so tasty and all about the HOPS!
