Pours a medium-dark gold/orange colour with a nice fluffy head and lots of legging.
Smells like sticky-sweet fruit juice, with lots of tangerine, some mango, pineapple, and maybe even a pinch of banana? This one is hard to pick out, but the sweet malty backbone makes this smell like an earthy, fruity candle -- apart from a bit of alcohol sneaking through.
Taste is pretty much on par with the smell, but has some more complex earthy bitter hop and malt notes playing off all the sticky, oily citrus and caramel malt flavours.
The feel is medium-thick with a slight warmth and dryness from the high ABV. Though personally the alcohol and dryness seem to be a tiny bit overpowering at times, there is more than enough spectacular flavour packed in to compensate. Overall, definitely world class.
