12oz bottle poured into a globe.

A: Murky and sunny golden in color. Creamy white head settles to a thin cape wispy lacing.

S: A striking tropical medley greets the nose. Pineapple and juicy peach, apricot, kiwi, tangerine and clementine. It's hard to tell where the hops end and the esters begin. Slight doughy yeast and a whiff of black pepper. Faint brush of alcohol. Sweet and honeyed malt.

T: The same juicy tropical melange leads the way. Pineapple, peach, apricot, tangerine, mango, clementine. Tea-like herbal bitterness as well. Leafy and earthy hop dimension builds underneath the tropical flavors. Malt base is sweet and honeyed. Earthy Belgian yeast. Peppery. Spicy alcohol counters the sweetness. Bitter, oily hops pick it up on the quickly drying finish and bring the balance full-circle.

M: Medium bodied with a slick malty feel. Biting carbonation lifts it off the palate for an airy texture. Lightly grating hop astringency. Robust warming alcohol sensation.

O: There's a great balance of flavors here, with malt, hops, yeast, and alcohol all contributing. Vibrant and juicy tropical notes brought by both big esters and hops provide the focal point. Spicy and peppery yeast and alcohol add a lot of depth and complexity. It ends up being more of a sipper with the big alcohol warmth slowing things down, but this one is both fun and contemplative at the same time.

Bottled on Jan 28 2014
A: golden! Shimmering
A: bread dough, grapefruit, medium intensity, mandarin orange, very well balanced, cohesive
T: hard, grapefruit rind, very bitter, lean, not complex. Bitter finish. As it warms the flavour dissipates.
M: medium low carbonation; medium weight
O: not an easy beer to like. Not complex, leaves a bitter taste...
