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

Tropical pineapple-y hop character that transitions into bittersweet grapefruit in the finish. Clean malt backbone, mildly sweet leaning more toward dry. Nice crisp finish with subdued bitterness. Clean and delicious.

Got in a 12 pack variety of cans. It's really a shame it's the only way to get it in cans, and apparently the only way to get 22oz bottles is at the brewery. Pours a clear light golden color with a white head with big bubbles. Doesn't leave much lacing. Nose is out of this world. Immediately reminded of Enjoy By. Loads of mango, guava, pineapple, and citrus. A little alcohol in the nose as well but almost undetectable. Taste follows the nose. Huge tropical fruit. Citrus on the back end. Some malty sweetness but otherwise a ridiculously well balanced and well crafted beer. Bitterness is spot on. If you're looking for something to destroy your palate look elsewhere. This stuff lets the aroma and flavor of the hops shine through excellently. As for mouthfeel you really can't ask for much more out of a DIPA. It's not too thick, carbonation is nice, and just drinks very well overall. Once this stuff gets noticed it's Top 250 bound. 88 for this is a travesty. Next time you see a Saint Archer 12 pack just get it. The IPA is tasty as well.
