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

Pours bit cloudy. Orange hued golden straw color with two fingers thick head with great retention leaves a decent sheet if lacing. Looks just fantastic.

Smell is big on tropical aromas. Mangos, pineapples predominantly. Subtle malt sugars compliment the aroma nicely.

Taste is bitter tropical fruits follows the nose. Lemon notes appear as well. Lots of what one might expect for the style but very well executed. Full of hop flavor and bitterness.

Nice dry finish with medium carbonation.

Would definitely include this my regular rotation if it were readily available to me.

look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Brooklyn Brewery snifter.

A - Dark golden color with a very light head that dissipates quickly, but doesn't quite leave entirely. Lots of good lacing.

S - sweet hops, pine resin and citrus dominate this one. A bit of booze hits before caramel sweetness. You really don't notice it too much though because the hops are so dominant.

T - pine and a surprising tropical fruit that I didn't pick up on the aroma. The citrus is there, but it takes a back seat to what tastes like papaya to me. This one really sticks with you in a nice way. Very impressive with the tropical hitting and sticking around. There is a mild spiciness, like a hint of Rye in this one that shows through once the palate calms down and processes it.

M - The bitterness really hits you the most in this one, setting up the overall mouthfeel. I like this, a solid bitterness on the palate, with a mild sweetness backing it up, but not offsetting it. This is a nice mouthfeel, but not for everyone.

O - I really enjoyed this one. Glad I bought a 6-pack, but wish I had done it sooner. I would like it to be just a touch sweeter on the finish, but still a great beer.
