Delicious sweet and malty monster with a sane amount of bittering hops. Tantalizing aroma of toasted barley and fermenting pineapple. Great spritzy and tangy mouthfeel. Modest head on the orangey golden brew in the big snifter.

This is among the fruitiest brews ever, but it's just so good. If you could get this serious mango flavor in a Belgian lambic, it would be delirious. Tastes like toasted brioche with apricot jam! Golden sweet, syrupy even, but bsalanced by the tart flavors of lime peel and a grapefruit acidity.

Powerful alcohol taste but it just fits well with the lush richness. Hugely hoppy but not overly bitter. This is all about the aromatics. It's the Mountain Dew of the gods. On tap at the jolly brewery tap in downtown El Segundo.

On tap at El Segundo Brewing Company in El Segundo, CA.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots and streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, honey, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and earthy berry aromas. Taste is much the same with brown sugar, honey, and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with fantastic aromas and tasty flavors, but it packs a fairly noticeable alcohol punch.

Had on tap at library ale house

A- nice amber gold color, not light good for a triple

S - potent with typical ipa tropical and danky notes

T - awesome! Stood up to pliney the younger on tap, more danky and less smooth. More of a malty bitter backbone

M - moderate to good, might have suffered next to pliney

O - excellent! This should be an awesome regular release I hope, definitely to be sought out
