White head. Super hazy orange gold.

Somewhat tropical and somewhat juicy and a bit resiny. A little dank and bitterness. Herbal and earthy.

Medium bodied. Nice bitterness.

Solid.

Pastel yellow with a moderate, dense creamy head that settles down to just about nothing.

Aromas of Asian pear, papaya, apricot, and faint pine.

Tastes closer to pineapple, with some peppercorn or spicy yeast giving it some bite.

A little watery, but still a touch creamy.

L -- Very hazy peach color, little head on a pretty light pour.

S -- Tons of mango and pineapple and strong peach notes. Slightly muted every time I've had it -- not as much of a burst of aroma as I expected. Some grassy notes to it as well.

T -- Follows strongly with the aroma, although with the inclusion of some resinous notes. The grassy notes persist and are added to by some floral knocks in the aftertaste.

F -- Medium, slightly resinous.

O -- A solid IPA. It has changed a lot of the three weeks I've been working my way through 8 of them, with 10-12 days being the sweet-spot for my palate on this one. It was quite juicy then, very strong citrus/tropical notes in the aroma and flavor, but that's dropped off a fair bit and more of the earthy/vegetal side of the hops have come through. I think at it's peak I'd give it about 4.3, but it doesn't have the best staying power.

Canned 3.11.16, this is 3.31.16, pours a nice hazy orange, slightly peach in color. Poured lightly, so no head to speak of this time but some lacing. Grapefruit and some vegetal notes come to the front on the nose and palate. Very tasty, and it's a drinkable beer despite having plenty of flavor.
