A - pours a fairly cloudy marigold color into a big bulb wine glass. Looks like a hazy round sun on a clear day. Around a fingers worth of pearly white foam on top which quickly dissipates.
S - the nose is thick, sticky, piny and dank. Resinous. Sort of like the sap stuck on pine needles or pollen on flowers. And lots of tropical fruit. Delicate notes of pineapple, mango, passion fruit and meyer lemon.
T - at first blush there is a honey malt character. Which almost immediately gets dominated by notes of snappy bitter citrus and resin. Notes of pine. Tropical fruit adds to the sweet honey malt flavors. The finish is sweet with hints of fruit and pine.
M - interesting texture. The beer seems crisp because of the intense hop character but its actually on the creamy side. Medium bodied with high tight bubbled carbonation.
O - an excellent ale. Just one of the finest dipas i have ever had the pleasure of trying.

Poured a thick, hazy orange. Very attractive, with a long lingering head and good lacing qualities. A big nose of citrus, pineapple, grapefruit. The taste mirrors the nose with big fruit and pine, and little malt notes. Just how I like them. Great carbonation and a nice drinkable feel. Very we'll done.
