Poured from a bomber into a snifter, the beer pours with a ton of head atop an unfiltered, hazy, golden copper coloring. Great lacing on the glass. Aromas of tropical abundance, with pineapple and melon all over the place, citrus highlights, and a nicely toasted, grainy backbone. Some apricot, caramel, and piney highlights throughout, as well. Flavors are resinous and peppery spiced forward, with a solid bitter blast. Toasted grains in the backbone, with a solid balance of sweet tropical fruits, grapefruit, cedar notes, floral highlights, and a tangy lemon zest. Very fruit leaning, on a full, slightly effervesced body. The aftertaste is slightly acidic with all the citrus and tropical fruit lingers. Smooth, slightly dry and crisp finish. Good beer.
