Got this from Biergartenok, cheers Freddie!

Pours a fairly hazed apricot with 3 fingers of sand colored head. This never quite clears up, insane head retention & good lacing

S: Breadyness, floral notes, all fairly subtle

T: Woody & grassy bitterness up front, apricots, pears & grapefruit up front, along with peppery spiceyness & some pineapple. Breadyness, honey malt, apricot, grapefruit, woody hops & pineapple as this warms. Finishes with pineapple, pineyness, woody dryness some nectarine & pear fruittyness

MF: Medium bodied, subtle carbonation that becomes creamy as this warms, good balance

A good DIPA, but I've had better from these guys. The hop mix wasn't completely to my liking, plus a little too fruitty for me, but is fairly quaffable none the less

P: Two toned, cloudy, golden apricot that starts dark and fades to light on the way down.  Crowned by a huge off white foamy head that is decadent and long lasting. 

S:  Abundant fruity hop aroma, spices, pineapple, toasted grains, timid sweet malts, apricots. Potpourri hops and honey are also present. 

T/M:  Floral hops and pine resin are more confident in the taste. Fruit seems to fade out and is mostly apparent in the nose. Nice playful body with a good dose of tongue tingling carbonation that meshes well. Slight hints of citrus rind and grapefruit.   Finishes very dry with grilled pineapple and a touch of smoke on the throat. 

O:  Complex and well integrated flavors deliver a really great IPA. The malt to hop ratio is well done and the juicy fruit aroma is excellent. The taste is not as grand as the smell but still good. I enjoyed this and would recommend it.
