cold 12oz bottle into pint glass
Appearance - pale yellow/orange color, head retention is awesome, sticky lacing all over the place!
Smell - My first time having this and I just said "Wow" out loud to myself, extremely unique and complex: pungent scent of fresh tropical fruits, kind of a lemony fuel funk (like pot), peppery and spicy, sweet and bready.
Taste/Mouthfeel - The taste follows the nose almost exactly, but with some drying pine/citrus and hoppy oil on the backside, and a slight bitterness smoothed out by semi-sweet malt goodness. Mouthfeel is super smooth and creamy - soft/tingly carbonation and full body. No alcohol to be found anywhere else but a slight hint on the very end...
Overall - One of the most uniquely flavored brews I've had: a magnificent hop bill for sure. The only drawback for me regarding this brew is palate fatigue after a couple: it's a big, potent, flavor bomb that pulls no punches.
