Poured from their bomber...

Appearance - Poured about 2 fingers of cream yellow colored head, color of the beer is a brilliand orange-red amber, almost completely transparent, with just the slightest haze.

Smell - Sweet pineapple, candied grapefruit, vanilla carmels. Some lite sweet floral hops

Taste - Starts with a wonderful balance of sweet citrus fruits and pineapple, honey and carmel, which quickly adds grapefruit rind, floral and herbal hops - literally picking up some lush green grass, parsley and basil flavors. Finishes with an almost puckering grapefruit zest and pine, wonderful!

Mouthfeel - Medium to full body, nearly mouthcoating, then medium carb cleans the palate just enough to enable the grassy, herbal and bitter hop characteristics to finish.

Overall - I love this beer! So many great things happening here, alcohol is completely hidden in the flavor, but can be felt on the breath between sips about halfway through the bomber. Give this one a try for sure, but don't drink something different afterwards, this will finish off your palate for the evening ;o)
