Modest off-white head, somewhere around a finger’s worth, dissolves away fairly swiftly, the lacing too is spotty with slightly under average stickiness. The liquid is gauzy if not close to cloudy, arguably as close to a reddish amber as true orange hue, there’s a few lazy bubbles visible, tend to be on the fat side. Robust nose filled with pink grapefruit, tangerine citrus, ripe apricot, peach, pineapple fruit, honey, chocolate powder, the pine sap is sticky and glues the freshly mown grass to your nostrils, hot tar, black pepper, metal shavings, its pungency is not all sweetness. Full-bodied and a touch heavy, the carbonation makes a decent stab at getting things swirling but it has its work cut out for it. Very piney and herbaceous, that tarry earthiness adds to its bite. The grapefruit and orange citrus here tends more towards bitterness. Still, no lack of cocoa malts, honey and caramel flavors. Tropical nature to the fruit, pineapple, guava, papaya in addition to the peach, apricot base. Serious amount of dry residue left during the finish, tends to dampen the exuberance of the sweeter elements. Overall, it smells and tastes wonderful, perhaps would benefit from adding greater cleansing freshness to the mouth feel.
