4.54/5 rDev +4.1%
Poured into glass it shows a light copper with a nice lingering head. Smells pretty hoppy to me. It initially has some grapefruit taste, halfway the pines show then finishes with a sweet caramel taste. At 7.85% I can barely taste the alcohol content. This beer is absolutely astounding.

4.29/5 rDev -1.6%
Pours a chill hazed tangerine copper with a frothy cream head that lingers.
Aromas of peach, nectarines, floral hops, resin, grapefruit, pineapple, and fresh cut grass abound. There's a touch of earthy funk and cannabis. Sweet caramel malt ties it all together.
Flavor reveals similar tropical fruit character, with pineapple and mango at the start. Grapefruit takes over early, riding a wave of slightly sweet, lightly bready caramel malt into the moderately bitter finish. Resin kicks in in the aftertaste.
Body is a touch full, with moderate carbonation and noted alcohol warmth.
Great hop aroma and flavoring, with just enough bitterness to counter the malt sweetness. If the hops were just a touch more tart to tame the sweetness a bit more...wow!
