Thanks to StonedTrippin for sharing this guy with us. We cracked the cage and cork, pouring a brew of glowing sunset orange. It held a frothy two finger head of crisp white bubbles, leaving patterned lacing down the glass as it disappeared at a medium pace. A thick haze permeated clarity, with no haze noted. Carbonation appeared to be active. The aroma gave big citric, nectary, and earthy hops right off the bat, offering sweetness and bittered twang. These mixed with the palest malts, baker’s yeast, and faint wheatiness. With warmth came clovey spice, fusel booziness, light medicinal phenols, and a far, far-off synthetic peach. Our first impression was that the peach was sadly diminished through the flavoring, but it otherwise demonstrated a decent base DIPA. As we sipped, the flavoring opened with spicy phenolic bite, ethanol, curiously wheaty malts, and big, juicy grapefruity and piney hops. These blended to the peak, with that same aromatic synthetic peach coming out more like soft apricot juice. This was quickly shattered by a rumbling back of those medicinal phenols, light plastics, and bittered, earthy and piney hops. The aftertaste breathed of mineral, pale malts, citric hop rind, grassy bitterness, booze, and nail polish. The body was medium, and the carbonation was high, with significant foaminess on the swirl around the mouth. Each sip gave big froth and cream, almost overly so, with nice slurp, sip, and finishing pop. The mouth was coated, but left on the dry side as the alcohol burned off. The abv was appropriate, and the beer drank decently.

Overall, what we enjoyed most about this beer was the otherwise solid, robust flavoring, despite the lack of peach. We were very excited about this, hoping for a bigger version of say, RJ Rocker’s Son of a Peach. Both the aroma and the flavoring were sorely lacking in any semblance of authentic peach flavoring. Any fruitiness became increasingly distant with warmth to the palate. There were mild flashes here and there, but it was hard to tell if that wasn’t an illusion of the booze, spice, and hops mixing together. Conversely, the nose did perk up a bit with its own warmth, but the final picture lacked conciseness and clarity.

Pours a beautiful and softly glowing yellow with a slight bit of haze to temper it's radiance. Has bubbles making their way to the top and a cream colored head of foam that lasted and left sticky creamy lace until it finally succumbed to the 10.1% abv and fell leaving spots and alcohol legs. Truly a handsome beer that in the softer light had some lovely orange hues.

Nose is mango. Not peach. Ripe earthy and sweet. Some pineapple to give it a little sugary backing and some tanginess. Lovely floral hops accentuate all the fruit. The malt is soft as it could possibly be on the nose. A soft sweetness. I observed only a faint fume of the abv and could not even be sure if it wasn't my imagination.

taste is outstanding. the amlt is perfection in this big beer. It has substance but it also has form. it gracefully does not become too heavy and is made lighter by a good carbonation. The mouthfeel is fuller than the typical IPA but it is very big. The fruit is ripe and prominent. The mango and the pineapple combine to create a sweet tropical sensation. The beer has some alcohol in the mouthfeel as a bit of sweetness and a bit of weight but this beer is not syrupy or too heavy to be enjoyed. It does not have any alcohol presence that could be considered hot , just a mild warmth as it finishes with a hop bitter that seems much weaker than it really is next to all that sweet fruit. Finishes sticky and sweet but drying on the tongue from the alcohol .

Beautiful At 10.1 % ( which is what mine says) this is just a mere point one percent over the limit for Double Imperial Pale Ale and therefore really a triple IPA. It drinks like one. It is not a glug glug beer but it has "drinkability.". It is the best one I have had without any harsh flavors from alcohol. This is the beer that can show you how this style is done.

Thank you Kerry4porters for sending me this beer.
