3.86/5  rDev -2.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, copper-caramel coloring with a frothy, off-white surface coat of head that clings to the glass. Aromas of tropical fruit forward, with pineapple, mango, and grapefruit, with some toffee notes mixed in as well. Flavors are roasted and bitter forward, with a resiny bolt of pine and pepper spice, followed by the tropical fruit blend to help round the edges a bit. The beer has a decent malt profile to really help keep the palate smooth and balanced. Mid-bodied and robust, the beer has a piney and grapefruit aftertaste, both tart and bitter, leading to a dry, lingering finish. Very solid brew, and very refreshing for the style.
