*To start off this review I would like to mention that I forgot about this in the back of the fridge for 6 months, so it may have a little more age than it probably should for an IPA.

A - Deep orange hue with fairly good transparency. Head dissipates quickly

S - Apricots are strongest point and citrus with a slight bitter aftertone

T - Similar to the smell. Very strong apricot up front, a grapefruit middle, with a bitterness on the back end with a slight numbing of the tongue from the alcohol to finish things

M - Medium body that coats the mouth like a citrus juice

O - Overall a very refreshing beer. Heavy on the sweeter fruitiness upfront, but still plenty of bitterness throughout. Carbonation seems to lack something, but that could be from the age

well I know I'm trying this beer with a little age on it or I wouldn't be paying $2.50 per at a philly suburb bar if it wasn't dated somewhat. And it's not quite as hoppy as it was 2 weeks ago when I first got it. Doesn't matter I'm one of "that niche" who doesn't mind an older ipa see celebration, high tide OR illumination which I had 9 months old in december and it was still incredible.

Hazy peach color huge malt background the bright American citrus hops seem to have faded leaving an amazing Belgian vanilla bubblegum malt bomb that's so strong, smooth, and satisfying. Drinkable? yes.'maybe next time it's brewed I'll have the pleasure to try if fresher.

Poured from growler purchased at DeCicco's in Cross River, NY. Poured into tulip glass.
Pours a slightly cloudy golden. Thick bubble foam and sticky lacing. Smell is fantastic! I smell a vanilla hop meets fruity hop kind of thing. Taste is exceptional as well. Again you get the bite of the hops, but its not overdone. Its well balanced with a cotton candy vanilla type flavor, but with a fruity, peach maybe?, belgian finish. The alcohol is hidden very well, but noticeable. The hops seem so lively and fresh...where I would say this is even a bit chewey. This is a fantastic beer and not to be passed up.
