Reviewed from tasting notes.

Pours out a lightly clouded brownish-coppery color with a really nice and tall foamy head that leaves excellent lacing behind on the surface of the glass.

Smells and tastes of cloves, black pepper, mangoes, pineapples, mint, jasmine, tofee, honeyed sweet tea, subtle peach flavor, and a medium-level booze sting in the midst of it all. Very nice complexity levels with all the elements working in relative harmony, even the ABV sting is helping out by accentuating the fruitiness levels.

Medium body with a lighter-medium level of carbonation.

If I absolutely had to pick something to criticize : It lands about 10% off-balance into sweetness for my personal palate preferences in a PA, and it really toes the line of an IPA as hard as it can get away with. Some might call a 'line foul' on it for that. Everything else about this brew is fairly excellent.
