-Canned 7/17. Consumed in a spiegelau ipa glass 11/17.

A: A light haziness fills a faint orange colored body with some lemony highlights. Carbonation is sparse, slow moving while a whipped and frothy dairy cream colored head rests atop with good resistance.

S: Wet and tropical pineapple and oranges mix with a juicy and fresh nature on the open. Fresh wet grassy and pine hops also chirp in. Theres some juicy lemon as well while the strength is mid-level while lingering.

T: Bittering orange and citrus hops are flowery providing a nice bite upon the open. The semi-dry tropical notes of pineapple and mangoes bring in a fresh wet vibe while the finish finds more of a flowery pine and grassy dry hop fade.

M: Crisp carbonation and creamy malts provide a razor sharp bite and delivery on the tongue. Flowery hops adds an abrasive edge and warming of tropical orange occurs on the inner cheeks.

O: Overall a nice transition of tropical wet and flowery dry hops progress though-out the drink bringing a nice change of spectrum. Amply hopped brew with some NE tropical notes combining with some west coast flair and flavor. Highly bitter, sharp mouthful with a nice drink-ability rate.

Pours the color of pineapple juice. Half a finger of white head which stays about the same all the way down, leaving not much lacing behind. Watery pineapple juice, yellow and opaque.

Light smell of citrus and perhaps tropical fruits.

Tastes of nondescript fruits, light malts. A bit thin, perhaps watery, aggressively bitter. Not at all juicy, as the name might lead one to believe.

Fairly light and easy to drink. Expect bitter rather than juicy.

16 oz tallboy dated July 31.

For a grocery store pickup, this is great. Pungent, juicy aroma. A little bitter and dry on the palate. Don't expect a trillium or treehouse and you won't be disappointed.

16 oz. Can poured vigerously into an imperial pint glass

A swirling deep haze of white-straw golden coloration. Chunky, dense but short white foam cap hold on tight. Lace and constant coverage is pretty excellent.

A deep , hoppy nose is rather impressive. Pine tree, citrus, light but juicy and sweet fruits. A rather excellent hop based aroma. The malt is light and mildly sweet aromatics blends right in with the sweet-citrus hops.

The flavor and mouthfeel are both light and crisp, then full and smooth with lots of hop coloration and electric malty tones. A rather crisp but earthy hoppy bite hits first, pine and tangy edged citrus brings a lively first impression. Very clean mouthfeel and taste is always nice with Peak. Whole grains, wheat, light malted barley, corn and maybe even light rye in the overall malt flavor spectrum. The hops have a big aroma but are toned down slightly in the flavor but puts it a very excellent balance with malt for a prettyclassic approach to the APA. Thinking of the style, this one is just spot-on, with even more malty goodness and hoppy complexity than even some of the best APA's I can think of. The hops are much more "New England" style juicy than they are bold and bitter like the big bots from the west coast (Sierra Nevada being just one). At any rate, the body and taste seems like it gets a wholsome boost from oats. I'm not saying its brewed with oats, but it could be!

Uber quality overall. An honest new classic for the style.
