Got in an awesome trade with Seblp - big thanks!

A: A swampy and orange apricot brew topped with a sudsy white rocky foam. The foam clings to the sides in fine and delicate sheets of lacing.

S: Smells as though fresh pine wood has been caramelized with musky mangos & melons spiked with grapefruit and orange rinds.

T: Wow - first, the malts balanced with hops are expertly layered in such a way that both the malts and hops sing together harmoniously. The sweet maltiness is a mild caramelized richness, notably buttery and fatty. The hops are a soft pine, with a grapefruit pith hit mid-palette. The finish is slightly dry pine, herbaceous, slightly sweet and refreshing.

M: Pin pricks on the tongue upfront, light and effervescent. The lightness opens up to a rich malty feel, like a thin caramel sauce. Perfection.

O: This brew expertly pairs the rich buttery malts with solid hoppy pine and grapefruit, supported by a mouth feel that smooth and chewy. Incredibly lucky to have this growler sent cross country!

Serving type: growler
