So, I was at my local bottle shop and they had this in their pick six section. Oven been wanting to try it for a while now. Here it goes:

Appearance: reddish copper. Hazy with a off white head. Very heavy lacing on the glass. Really nice

Smell:citrus. Grapefruit, orange, and maybe some pine in there.

Taste: the best way I can describe it is like this: starts with the citrus hops, then a mellow honey taste. All of a sudden, the bitterness come crashing through. Wow! It's very crazy. I like it

Mouthfeel: almost stout like. Thick. But at the same time if can drink this on the deck in the summer. It's very pleasing to the senses

Overall: I like it a lot! It's not a beer I could drink a few of in one night, but a few bottles here and there. Very tasty!

A: Radiant amber/maple syrup/orange body, little to medium smooth off-white head, hazy and a bit transparent (not really)

S: Definitely has a nice, elegant, honey presence….pineapple, citrus, orange, some resin & caramel malt….grapefruit/tropical fruit

T: Nicely balanced: fruit (tropical/grapefruit), citrusy hops, honey, orange, lime, caramel malt, pineapple, and mango… pine bitterness…I found this to be fairly smooth considering the ABV

M: Medium-to-full-bodied

O: Got this guy from my good friend Kenny Leeper…a good friend indeed…and will have to concur with his opinion that this guy right here puts up a good fight against Hopslam: extravagant; mouthwatering; juicy…just a tasty beverage I would gladly have again - Thank you Sir
