Glass Used: Tulip
Appearance: A hazy, copper with an orange tinge. A two finger thick luscious foam topped the beer's surface. It rescinded down to a thick ring with a sudsy cap. Generous lacing. Gorgeous.
Smell: I get a mix of citrus fruits - grapefruit, lime, sweet mandarin orange - and tropical notes - pineapple, papaya, mango - compounded with quite a bit of pine resin.
Taste: Sweet biscuit malts up front followed by resiny hops through to the finish. A slight pleasant bitterness leaves you wanting another taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium body, a bit of resin stickiness.
Overall: This one doesn't disappoint. I really dig how well the malt and hops are balanced in this offering. I've been wanting to try for some time and Pintofbrown surprised me with this one in our latest trade. Definitely recommend.

In a teku
A- cream-colored foamy head two fingers thick. Cloudy orange/amber body with residue floating around and no visible carbonation. 4
S- light citrus, lemongrass, grapefruit peel, sweet malt. 4
T- considerably sweet and malty, like oatmeal almost, but then a dose of grapefruit breaks through. I suspect some of the hop aroma and flavor have faded. Tough to know since there's no canned date here. 4
M- medium-bodied, malt-heavy, with a mild, pleasant bitterness. The finish is semi-dry and lingers with both sweet and bitterness. 4
Overall, it's good but I still am not convinced I've ever had this beer fresh enough to be blown away. 4
