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

Bottled 750ml. No dating - get on it, Archer!
Orange color, fluffy head. Mostly sour and sweet citrus fruit (more orange than grapefruit), with some tropical notes, and a buttered biscuit undernote. Taste is mildly malty, with a lingering moderate bitterness. Body medium on the lighter side. Definitely a Socal IPA, with more fruit than earth. It is highly drinkable because of the simple pale malt bill, like Sculpin or Pliny. It is very good, close to greatness. If only I knew how fresh the bottle was, so I could take that into account. What are we, in the Middle Ages?
