Decent short lived off white head with some lace. Golden with lots of haze and particulates. Aroma of baked bread, passion fruit, with a bit of cattiness. Strong carbonation with a medium body. Earthy/herbal hops with a fair amount of sugary sweetness. Strong bitter finish with a noticeable amount of alcohol.

This is my first APW, thanks to mpayne5! Wow! I am loving this stuff! It feels like the wolf on the label just bit my face off. This stuff is not for beginners! A true citrus-hop bomb indeed. Pours a hazy orange-copper, with a thin creamy head that dissipates fairly quickly which is fine with me. Where do I start with the aroma? The only way I can describe it, is like freshly sliced fruit salad sitting on a bed of pine needles. I gotta say, this is one of the best smelling DIPA's I have ever had the pleasure of drinking. To say this beer is a hop-bomb is an understatement! Big hop's way up front, yet sweet and malty on the finish, and it tickles my nose like champagne. I can't say enough good things about this beer, If you see it, get it! If you don't get it in your area, trade! I know I am gonna, again!

well...here we go. FFF - couldnt resist the purchase.
purchased this bottle for $9.99 at Joes in Richmond, Indiana. Its a bit dusty...no date on the bottle.
Poured into tulip glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden copper...thick white head.
Crazy peach and fruity hop aromas with a big malt backbone. Like a DFH 90 min...but more fruity..
Taste is big fruity hops...light fruit like peach or pear with some citrus or pineapple notes; followed by a bit of a malt finish - like vienna or something bready. Big fruity finish...
Its a very easy drinker and you really dont notice the ibu or abv here...not an amazing DIPA...just too malty for me to be amazing. I cant get through the bomber so i switched to a two hearted ale...so much better...
This is a brew where i dont get the hype...
