Picked this up at Julio's. Bottled on 06/02/14 so yah, super fresh!
A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a nice crystal clear light golden hue with a good thumb thickness white head that faded to leave sticky side lacing and a nice creamy blanket. Very, very solid.
S - Aromas of very light tropical notes, faint earthiness, faint lager notes. The Calypso hops are really, really nice with a good pear like aroma. Just wish there was more POW as the aromas are all a bit on the faint side.
T - Taste is more of the fleeting tropical notes with light grapefruit, soft grassy notes too and some resinous bitterness. There is more of a melon/pear like flavour poking through at the end that is very pleasant. Alcohol is basically nonexistent. That grassy pear really lingers on the finish that is nice.
M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, bright, crisp. Alcohol hidden.
O - Overall, a very tasty APL here. Like what the Calypso hops brought to the table with that underlining melon/pear. Well done.
