look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A - Pours a clear and very rich looking medium copper color with a one fingered creamy layer of foam. The foam sticks to the glass like cotton candy glue.
S - I can't really describe this aroma as nothing short of amazing! Pure ripe citrus rinds: oranges, mango, papaya, pineapple, and grapefruit. Very juicy and overripe tropical fruit at its finest. One of the BEST noses I've experienced in a beer in a very LONG time!!!
T - Surprisingly different than the nose which I expected more of a fruity, sweet bitterness which is dominated by ultra big bitter grapefruit, and light caramel malt underneath. The tongue is met with sweet tropical fruit for a brief moment before the grapefruit comes rolling down the tracks like a giant freight train. The tidal wave calms down towards the end (ever so slightly) and allows the fruit to surface...just barely. Is a little boozy as well.
M - Big medium body with boozy warming.
O - This is a MUST try!!
