A - Dark red amber in color. Clear. 1 finger foamy white head that is slow to dissipate. Slight foaminess remains throughout the duration of drinking this beer. 4.5/5

S - Pineapple, mango and citrus hit me right off the bat. As the beer warms, a slight graininess and some sweetness make their way out as well. Earthy. 3.75/5

T - Definite tropical fruits here. Same as the nose. Lingering bitterness on the back end but not overwhelming. Grassy hops. A bit of resin. Definitely hop forward. Hint of toffee up front as the beer warms. Malt is somewhat muted. Earthy and leathery. 3.75/5

M - Very light, crisp, and dry. Very refreshing. Moderately carbonated. Clean feeling beer. Except for the lingering bitterness, I wouldn't know that I just had something in my mouth. 4/5

O - I thoroughly enjoyed this beer. Hops are powerful but balanced out by the earthiness of the malt. My favorite part was actually the appearance. Love seeing a beer that can hold it's head throughout the duration of drinking it. 3.75/5
