Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: xlperro on 12-18-2002

This brew uses several varieties and multiple hop additions to the kettle as well as a large "hop back" to give the bitterness and aroma a start. Plenty of dry hops finish it off and give a big hop bouquet.
Draft & 22oz bottles.

Thanks to Chico1985 for being awesome and sharing this bottle.

A- Orange-amber hue with a nice creamy, frothy white head. Size of about two fingers and decent retention. Nice webbed lace runs down the glass.

S- Nice peach tropical fruit note comes off the top with a big presence of pine and citrus zest. Yeast bread and a bit of malt round it out.

T- Hops come off with pine first, then some peach/tropical fruit, citrus fruit/zest and some floral in the end. Balanced out nicely by yeast notes, mostly bread, and some caramel malt.

MF- Creamy moderately thick feel with a nice smooth carbonation. Bitterness level is right down the middle and feels right with the flavors

Not the biggest DIPA in the world but it packs nice flavors and drinks very well. Not overly bitter and the hop profile displays brewing skill instead of just dumping in a bag full of hops.
