Poured from a bottle into a snifter.
A- deep amber appearance with 1 finger thick head.
S- pineapple, mango, grapefruit, and pine.
T- nice hop bitterness, subtle caramel malt, pine, grapefruit, mango, and alcohol.
M- the hop bitterness lingers on the palate and the 10% ABV brings a nice warmness. Mild carbonation and slippery/oily mouthfeel.
O- this is a nice beer from SN. I enjoy it a lot more than Torpedo. It has a nice blast of hop bitterness that scalds my palate and leaves me wanting more.
