4.55/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Bought a 22 oz bottle a couple of weeks ago when I visited the tasting room at FW. Poured into my FW pint glass that came with a sample tray of their flagship beers.

A: Pours a clear gold color with heavy head - 4 fingers after a vigorous pour. Carbonation seems nice & lazy.

S: Smells great. Name your tropical fruit and it'll be here. Orange, melons, pineapple, citrus, you name it. A great hoppy aroma that also gives a sweet subdued malty smell hidden away.

T: A full mouthfeel of hops - again with the citrusy, tropical fruit. Flavors are good. Tastes a little too sticky sweet, but if you're in the mood for a hop kick this one does the job. The malts linger way in the background. Tastes like mostly light malts with a little light crystal to bump up the character.

M: Very sweet, but understandably so from the hops. Besides that, this tastes rather medium to light. Refreshing, but the sweetness seems to weigh you down a little nonetheless. A little warming in the back of my throat from the alcohol, but the higher ABV doesn't really appear noticeable.

O: Being that it's quite muggy here in Philly today, this one hit the spot. A great beer. One of my favorites from FW. Definitely worth a try, especially if you're a hophead. I think I need to go brush my teeth now because the hop bitterness is wearing away my enamel.
