Served in tulip. Poured a lightly cloudy yellow gold color with about 1/2 inch of white head that had good retention and light-to-moderate lacing.

The aroma was mostly pine hops, with a bit of citrus in the background and a barely noticeable malt presence. The beer was identical on the tongue, except for an annoyingly strong alcohol bite.

The body was decent, a bit on the full side of average, and had a sharp alcohol burn at the finish. Drinkability was hurt by the alcohol sharpness, I couldn't see drinking two in a row. Overall, a decent, but not notable brew. Maybe try one if you see it, but don't go out of your way to get one.

aggressively poured from a 12oz bottle into a goblet.

appearance was excellent, a slightly hazy body with a thick bright white head. Head retained around the edge of the glass, but was faint on the main body of the beer. lacing was initially nice, but did descend the glass rather quickly.

Wasn't getting too much on the nose on this one. Some hops, vague sweetness was all

Taste was where things got a little strange. Initially, I got a strong non too pleasant fruity taste on the back of the tongue, mango-ish I'd have to say. Hops were muted but tasty enough. I put it aside and pondered for a while. "I'm not gonna enjoy this" I thought. But about halfway through the beer, I stopped getting the off putting fruity taste, and it was replaced by a peppery sharpness around the edge of the tongue. This I enjoyed immensely. Surprisingly enough, I enjoyed the pepper much more than I was irked by the mango taste.

Mouth was decent thickness. Full, not thin at all.

Overall, a very interesting drink. I have another in the fridge, so will be looking forward to how that one goes down. Did thoroughly rinse the glass before drinking, so not likely a residue issue
