Decants a ripe peach liquid, cloudy yet letting light through. Dense cream colored head, with bubbles that appear hesitant to pop. As the head slowly drops, it is already leaving some solid looking lacing, thick indeed.
I can smell tropical fruit coming out of my glass from a distance of 2 feet. Upon closer inhalation, I'm getting some pineapple, dried mango, and some peach and nectarine. Smells bitterly hoppy.
Different than I expected. I didn't think the lactose would work too well, but it actually does. All the fruit salad from the aroma is here, and the lactose balances it a bit. Not as bitter as I expected either. Bitterness is there, yet it's more floral, almost honey sweet bitterness, if that makes any sense. Herbal notes also come out. Good pale malt flavor, could have been stronger here, but still a very nice beer, and well within realm of balance. Very tasty, and interesting.
Slick, oily, medium bodied, with a long luxurious bitter and sweet finish.
Highly drinkable. No real perception of the alcohol, and it all works very well together. Almost like a English IIPA. Super floral and herbal notes, with the expected citrus and tropical fruit flavors works well. Really quite good.

Like the 22oz bombers enjoyed every drop of it had my taste buds jumpy and wouldn't mind having this on a movie night like today. This is one of my many favorite double IPAs wish it can come in a six pack as well. Like the art work on it don't know why but very Picasso.
