Peachy-caramel color with a frothy eggshell colored head with good retention and pretty good lacing.

Brilliant nose which actually smells pretty similar to Citra DIPA (my favorite DIPA). Beautiful mild citrus, pineapple and sweet floral hop notes with a nice mildly sweet maltiness.

Flavor is just exceptional as well with fantastic balance. Again like the nose there is an excellent hop character with wonderful floral, light pine and citrus, pineapple, peach and mango notes and a perfect malt balance.

Mouthfeel is light, fresh and fairly crisp and lively with med-high carbonation.

Overall I was blown away by this random pick up. This is now my favorite IPA just beating out Just Outstanding IPA. This has amazing hops character through and through and deserves to be ranked and hyped up there with RR, Alpine and Kerns big IPAs. I absolutely recommend picking up one of these.

I really love this beer. It was made for me.
Looks a lighter brown and is not too dark.
The smell is the strongest smell I have ever had from a beer, which is entirely fruity hop smell.
Tastes like it smells although the malt bill does not balance the hop flavor it provides a little kick to it at the end. Somewhat grainy.
I just love everything about this beer. These guys did an awesome job. I almost thought this was too fruity, I couldn't believe that they didn't add any actual fruit to this beer. But I just loved the flavor. While Pliny is piney, this is comparable but fruity. Just as drinkable but obviously Pliny has a higher alcohol content and maintains that smoothness.

Almost my favorite beer, awesome!!!! A different IPA.
