This one pours a copper/caramel color. Clarity is decent, and head wasn't particularly impressive after a vivacious pour. It all slows down to an eggshell white film with a few lace spots.

The nose is a sweet and sour explosion of tropical fruit, pineapple, fresh garden herbs, bright juniper pine, and bubblegum. The slightest breath of alcohol, caramel backbone, and some spice seeps through as it warms. A joyous aroma, I'd like it in a body wash.

The flavor is a tropical and herbal hop jungle. However, it does have a bit more pronounced toasty malt base. It's actually pretty well-balanced, but by no means is the hop profile anything less than satisfactory. The malt bill is caramel and a bit buttery. The finish is all resiny hops. It's a boat load of flavor for sure!

The mouthfeel is around medium with a bit of a creamy slick feel. The carbonation is light, but crisp through the finish. The finish is dry, with a bit of lingering slime.

It's very easy to drink, the alcohol is hidden well. It's got a crap load of flavor on both ends of the spectrum. It's not a tongue ripper yet the hop head will certainly get his/her fix. A beer of this caliber shouldn't be going down this smooth. Pretty awesome beer.
