3.16/5  rDev -23.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.75

22oz bottle poured into a New Belgium globe.

A: Clear red-orange. Bone white head originally stands about an inch high, but dies quickly. Minimal lacing, just a thin, whispy ring.

S: A burst of tropical hop flavors atop a biscuity malt base with hints of caramel. Honeydew melon, kiwi, tangerine, passion fruit, peach, pineapple juice. Subtle hints of broken pine needles. Tame tropical esters in the background. A very good nose, just a bit understated.

T: Playful tropical notes of tangerine, pineapple, peach, and honeydew melon flit about on the tongue for a brief moment. Resin and hemp seed provide more of a bitter bite than the nose implied. The bitterness builds and becomes quite sharp and acute. Oily and peppery. Intensely bitter ruby red grapefruit. The biscuity malt base is all but snuffed out. Alcohol strays and becomes a bit hot and solventy. Gripping oily bitterness never releases its choke hold on the palate, even into the finish.

M: Medium bodied with a creamy firmness. Low carbonation. Alcohol lends warmth in the swallow.

O: Dorado rubs my taste buds the wrong way. It's mainly the alcohol. This is coming in far too hot for my liking.
