A: The beer is slightly hazy amber orange in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin off white head that died down a bit and left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of tropical fruits are present in the nose along with some hints of grapefruit.
T: The taste is similar to the smell but seems a little maltier with notes of caramel and has a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: In feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is quite drinkable considering its strength because it hides its alcohol very well. There is also a good balance between the malts and hops.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours a clear medium copper in color with light amounts of visible carbonation and some orange + amber highlights. The beer has a thin quarter finger tall dense foamy light beige head that reduces to a very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer along with a small patch of medium thickness and some medium bubbles. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of tropical/mango and citrus/grapefruit hops with a lighter amount of sweet caramel malts.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of sweet malts with some caramel sweetness. That is followed by moderate flavors of tropical/mango and citrus/grapefruit hops that contribute a light to moderate amount of lingering bitterness.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: This is an enjoyable brew because it highlights the flavors of the hops with a great balance between the sweetness of the malts and the bitterness of the hops. Easy to drink and definitely worth picking this one up again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep orange. Clear. Medium white head. Good retention with a medium collar.

Smell - Grapefruit. Smells like simcoe. Caramel malt. Some booze.

Taste - Orange and grapefruit. Sweet citrus. Gets a little herbal and pithy in the back. Sweet doughy malts. Bitter in the back.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. A bit boozy. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Enjoyable, but I'd take Boy King over this.

A: Poured from a bottle to a tulip glass. Had a copper color and a clear texture. There was a small amount of foamy head that quickly dissipated. Pretty good lacing.

S: An incredibly enticing aroma of hops, tropical fruit, and malt.

T: Tasted of heavy hops, a slight amount of malt, tropical fruit (mango especially), citrus, pine, and some alcohol (fairly noticeable). A complex, sweet, and powerful flavor.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a dry finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A likeable and well made beer. Drinkable.
