Thanks to 316nuts. Pours a deep reddish amber. This almost looks like an imperial red ale. It's somewhat cloudy. The head is medium to small and off-white. Bubbles fade to not much after a minute. The aroma has a lot of caramel malt with some solid citrus and tropical fruit hoppiness. Grapefruit, orange, pineapple, mango, white grape, peach, mint. Some spice. Doughy, caramely malt. Mild booze. A little bubblegum. Taste is sweet, but the caramel malt character is restrained. Medium to medium-high bitterness. Good hop flavor. More of the same mix of citrus, tropical and other fruit notes. The mixture of bitter and sweet gets in the way of the hop complexity a bit. It just gets a bit harsh in the finish. Some alcohol heat but it's mostly hidden. Normal carbonation. A bit heavy. Hop oily. Just a little cloying, at least for my taste. This doesn't fit my preferences in the style, but I can appreciate why others like it.

Thnx chidave!

So......
A: murky golden brown. Nice average lacing
S: I'm getting a great orange-peach scent. It's nice. Could it be the yeast?
T: yup, it's gotta be the yeast. Booze is definitely there. I'm getting so much yeast outta this it's border line Belgian (kidding)
M: all things aside, what stays is good..and this flavor stays! Light-medium coating stays over every bit of my mouth.
O: I think my honkeybucket home brew is on par with this.
