Poured from bottle into my snifter. Bottled less than 1 month ago according to trading partner. Thanks kcbaby!

Appearance- Nice one finger head, which fades moderately slowly to a thick ring around the glass. Attractive honey gold color. Lacing is prevalent on the glass.

Smell- Mango, some piney hops, grapefruit, lemon, other sweet citrus smells. Not much malt or alcohol present. Very nice.

Taste- Sweet orange and tropical fruits at the start, pine in the middle on the tip of the tongue, and sweet malts take over for the finish. Tastes a bit hot surprisingly, mixing with piney bitterness that lingers. The sweetness cuts it a bit, but it's malt driven and kind of a straight sweetness without flavor.

Mouthfeel- Medium-heavy body (for style) with medium-high carbonation. I yearn for a bit more creaminess to the feel, instead it's a bit oily.

Overall- Pretty drinkable, but a little too bitter for my preference. Somehow it's also surprisingly malt dominant at the same time. I guess what I'm saying is there is prevalent hop bitterness, but not as much citrusy hop flavor as the nose would have me expect.
