4.21/5  rDev +16.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from the bottle into a Dogfish Head Ale glass.

At first a real glowing what appears to be crystal orb glowing peach orange and brass bronze like color, but close inspection shows it a bit hazy slightly. Head grows a nice foamy and creamy two to three fingers tall, and settles with some nice minor lacing on the edges.

Palate is fruity punch sweet. Powdery slightly, with a bit of tropical pulp like sensations. Heat and spice on this is not very evident. What appears is a sweet smelling tropical juicy brew with no malt or hop presence. Candy like nose but clean. Interesting not sure where this is going.

Sweet palate. Fruit angle hits first with a honey and peach fruit like coating. Sticky qualities not so much, but the finish is all hot peppers. Controlled without a giant rush of heat, or chili head freak nature. Sweetness and spice is perfectly balanced, with a controlled, slowly warming gradual heat sensation. The fruit action also moves to a sort of peach quality, with the peppers and fruit going back and forth over and over. Bready malts come out a bit on the swallow, but the fruit and pepper quickly take over. No hint of boozy heat that the ten percent abv hints at either.

OVerall, the brew is really fun, and it does well on its own to drink by itself. It also screams a food pairing, I was thinking with it's fruity and peppery character fish tacos and more so pork carnitas or something Hawaiian. Fun times from Founders indeed.

Reviewed from memory from 4 days ago.

Poured a fairly clear golden copper with a foamy ivory head that dissipates somewhat quickly.

Tropical notes of mango and pineapple were contrasted by sweet and spicy peppery notes.

In flavor, the mango really came to life. It was a pleasant, juicy contrast to the fruity, spicy pepper flavor. The heat was still a bit too much. Malt was somewhat thin, and lacked sweetness to counter.

Got a bottle of this. Think I'll lay it down another couple years. Couldn't drink more than a few ounces, though.
