Notes / Commercial Description:
Double IPA hopped intensely and exclusively with New Zealand Wai-iti. The aroma on this one is so insane. It's like straight up fresh peaches and apricots with a fresh squeezed lime. The flavor profile follows with a tiny of touch of spice. Virtually no bitterness.

This review is based on a 5 month old can recieved as an extra and disregards the beer description.

Pale gold in color, cloudy, and a half inch of head that settles to nice film. Significant lacing as it drinks down.

Nose is a mixture of mango, peach, orange, bubble gum, and subtle sweetness.

Taste is muddled tropical fruit, very minor sweetness, hop bitterness, and malt.

Mouthful is creamy and light. Carbonation is medium to high. Finish is dry.

Surprised by the other reviews here on the quality of this beer. I think it is a solid NE IPA however after reading the description I can see where the problem lies. Much similar to other beers out there, the description is half the appeal and when it sounds great but doesn't live up to it problems arise. This seems to be the case here. Take the write up and throw it away and just try the beer.

Usually I don't bash a beer, but what were they on when they came up with the description for this? It's tastes nothing of peaches and limes.

Cloudy orange, thick white head and spotty lacing. Aroma of adjunct lager and spicey hop. Notes of crushed aspirins, rubber bands left in isopropyl alcohol and hops added after dropped in dirt. Forget the feel I can't get past the bitter horrible linger. This was just bad and it's a shock coming from this brewery. This shouldn't have been canned and sold.
