NOT super fresh bottle. Bummer.

Pour is a nice slightly hay orange/amber/gold. no real head.

Nose is pretty citrussy, with some mango, passion fruit, orange and lemon.

Taste is a little citrus up front, mostly orange and blood orange, some lemon. Followed by a pretty biting hop bitterness.

Feel is pretty medium full.

Need to try this again fresh, but you work with what you got. Still a really good DIPA, lots of great hops character and flavor. Probably better newer.

Huge thanks to Phyl21ca for sending this beer as part of a great trade.

A: Pours a light pumpkin colour, clear with about 2 fingers of white head. Nice amount of lacing along the sides of the glass.

S: Huge floral bouquet with fresh pine. Middle notes of sweet malts and background of tropical sweetness fruit.

T: Pronounced taste of ripened stone fruits together with citrus rind and hoppy pine. Immediately followed by a wave of sweet malts. Extremely balanced. Alcohol is noticeable but enjoyable.

M: Syrupy with low carbonation.

O: Unique in the stone fruits and floral notes. The malts expertly balance out the hop characteristics. Definitely seek out.
