Best by May 20, 2014. Opened June 29th, 2014.

A- Low head and lace. Rich golden body with apple juice highlights.

S - Ouh, interestingly sweet and fruity nose. Raspberry jam, tangerine, soft herbal bitters, and bread crust.

T - Sweet and fruity, similar to the nose but with a stronger hop bitterness. Raspberry jam, orange marmalade, toasted bread, honey. Herbal cilantro and woody bitters show up in the center and hang around through the finish.

M - Great mouthfeel. Full for the style with a nice bright carbonation.

O - A great fruit forward DIPA: probably the best example I've had yet in that range of the style.
