Poured 12 oz bottle best by May into New Belgium globe

A-Poured a nice hazy golden with 1 finger off white head. Good lacing.

S-Aroma is enormously peachy, with tons of tropical fruit, some citrus and a touch of caramel and malt.

T-Taste follows a similar suit, with not a huge bitterness but tons of hop flavour - again really fruity and juicy.

M-Mouthfeel is smooth and not too dry. Great carbonation!

O-very decent IPA had to go to DC to get it. Can't wait until it hits Md

Pours a golden orange with a medium white head, good lacing. Aroma and Taste is a rich floral citrus and pine hops aroma, fruity some mild orange peel essence balanced with some good caramel malt flavor on the end. Palate is a medium body with good carbonation and a smooth mouth feel. This brew is very tasty and well balanced with some lingering hops and caramel malt on the end. A very good brew.
