12 oz bottled poured into an IPA glass. Packaged by date of 8/6. Consumed on 9/27.
A - Golden amber in color. Poured no head with light carbonation. Not cloudy, yet not very translucent. Light ring of foam around edge with no lacing... more like small circles of residual foam.
S - Very fragrant. Dried apricot smell dominant, with hint of green apple, white grape, raisin, and brown sugar.
T - A very pleasant tart IPA... flavors include lemon, melon, sour apple, pineapple, melon, and honey. Light pleasant alcohol notes with some bitter hops. Well balance malt backbone with lingering bitterness on the back of the tongue.
M - Although carbonation is not readily apparent visually, yields a tingly crisp feel on the tongue. Feels very clean.
O - Can't believe I haven't had this beer in awhile... starting drinking a few years ago before I really became exposed to the world of craft beers and thought it was phenomenal then. Got wrapped up in trying different IPAs and DIPAs and lost track of this gem. This beer is always a solid win and competes well even with limited releases seasonals. Also, gets high marks for being widely available. Highly recommended and good year round.
