Although not bottle dated, this just arrived at my local Whole Foods and I'm assured very fresh. Taste& feel confirms!

Everything about this beer is damn good. Lemon zest, and tropical fruit from the Citra hops show up just enough without making this a fruit juice bomb. The malt lends a bubble gum flavor which is surprising and appreciated. Tropical Fruit / Bubblegum & Pine West coast DIPA.

This beer is dry, crisp and clean. For those of you who have yet to try this very nice specimen of a DIPA, I felt this beer reminded me of a much more clean & refined, more citrussy version of SN Torpedo.

I'd 100% purchse this again when assured fresh. (649 characters)

Criminally underrated DIPA, this thing burts with a pungent hop nose and equally robust palate. It's savory, with bits of pine and tropical fruit thrown in. I'll say it 'till I'm blue in the face -- Saint Archer's pale ale/IPA/DIPA lineup is as strong as anyone not just in the state but in the country. (303 characters)

Poured into a tulip

A- pours a clear golden-orange color with a small creamy white head that eventually settles, leaving some nice lacing behind

S- strong whiff of fruity hop aroma, with an emphasis on citrus rind, pineapple, mango & papaya. Sweet bread & earthy malt, with a hint of toasty aroma

T- citrus fruit dominates up front with a big emphasis on pineapple and mango, grapefruit and and danky hop follows in the mid-palate, malty fresh bread and some earthy notes, the finish gives some grassy notes with a nice dandy linger

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouth feel and a smooth creamy finish

O- big citrus notes with some nice bready notes to back it up, classic west coast DIPA style (727 characters)
