Moderate pour yields a 3/4 inch white head over very bright, almost clear body with very little lacing. Nose of slight citrus, slight pine, and even slighter peach. Taste follows nose almost exactly with an odd, bitter finish. Good feel and overall, nothing to write home about.

16 oz can dated 9/25/17

Clear medium yellow color, bright white head. Moderately fruity aroma. Taste is pilsner malt, slight bitterness. Not much peach flavor. Very Thin bodied for a DIPA.

Can dated 9/25/17 into pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy straw color, with an off-white head trhat dissipates quickly. Initial impression is citrus, pine, and I'd say tropical fruits - peaches, if present at all, are muted. Slight sweetness. Mouthfeel is medium, as is carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden. Finishes with a slight sweetness that fades into a slight bitterness at the back of the tongue.
This is not a hop bomb, nor is it a fruity beer. The various flavors are fairly subtle, and complement each other rather than competing. Nicely done.

Poured a rather clear yellow with limited head. Picks up in the aroma, very nice mix of what seemed more like pear to me rather than peach. some pine and a hint of citrus in the background. Taste is similar but slightly muted. There is a bit of lingering piney bitterness. Overall a very good, but not great IPA.
