A: Pours a hazy golden peach/apricot in color with some moderate amounts of fine visible yeast sediment in suspension at the bottom of the glass, light amounts of visible carbonation, and some orange + golden yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall foamy light beige head that slowly reduces to a couple of medium sized thin patches, a thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer, and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Very light aromas of caramel malts underneath moderate to strong aromas of citrus/grapefruit hops, tropical/pineapple/mango hops, and much lighter amounts of pine & floral hops.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of caramel malts with a light amount of sweetness. That is followed by fairly aggressive and strong flavors of hops - citrus/grapefruit, tropical/pineapple/mango, and pine. Moderate amounts of fairly aggressive hop bitterness in the finish which lingers for quite a while.

M: Just shy of full bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly sticky with a light amount of dryness in the finish.

O: This is really enjoyable with nice hop flavors, though slightly aggressive, and well balanced with the malts - there is enough sweetness that is it not overly or unpleasantly bitter. Pretty easy to drink and definitely one I would like to find again. Alcohol is well hidden.

Can poured into a chalice.

Two finger fluffy white foam cap settles to a dense white layer with scant lacings. Copper orange opaque liquid with some carbonation.

Tropical & citrus hops with sweet caramel malt aroma

Bitter citrus , grapefruit hops on the front and side of the tongue. Strong bitter aftertaste that lingers and lingers and lingers....

Moderate sudsing on the sip. Feel the alcohol. Good body.

This was a beer that I have been trying to buy for quite some time. Called the brewery and they just released a batch. Tried a nearby liquor store and they mixed them in assorted can 4 packs. Can't buy Gandhi Bot straight up. Fine beer worthy of seeking out

Overall this is a great easy to drink dipa, the aroma is out of the world citrus and fruit. Smooth bitterness with loads of fruit. My only complaint is that it finishes a little thin, the flavor kinda of just stops and doesn't follow through to the finish. def not a heady topper but I don't think it's trying to be. Way different profile. But still good. I like it

The nose on this is faint at best for me. Not sure of the exact canning date on this one but I do know it has some age. The taste however is very present. Lots of sweet, citrusy hops. Enough malt presence to stand up to the bold hop profile but it definitely doesn't take over.

Really enjoyed this despite having it well past it's peak freshness.
