Growler fill at brewery. Consumed same day (11/16). Poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Written from notes.

A - Orange/amber with a finger of egg shell colored head. Moderate carbonation with distinct lines. Layers of wavy lacing on sides of glass. Cloudy with no sediment.

S - Mildly fragrant. Orange and peach.

T - Peach, apricot, melon and citrus (orange?). Does not completely mask ABV. Noticeable malt backbone. Warming. Not a bitter hop bomb, but a little pink grapefruit in the finish.

M - Moderate to high carbonation with a medium body.

O - Pleasant surprise. Rather good DIPA in my backyard. Currently overpriced though... $20 for a growler fill, or $15 during designated happy hours. Happy to support local economy, but not when I can get a fresh 6-pack of a superior out-of-area DIPA without too much difficulty.

Served on tap at Smartmouth Brewing Company. I liked this DIPA overall, but it's a bit unbalanced. The fruitiness overpowers the other elements in my opinion, but still it's a pretty good DIPA.
