3.79/5  rDev -8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured on tap into a small snifter at Churchkey DC. From notes.

A hazy orange amber body presented with a soapy and very thin off white collar.

Weird nose. Paste and paper, with a very noticeable light floral hop and action and dominating citrus hop. Big sense of chew density.

Palate is a bit of a shock. It's incredibly sweet. Citrus orange sweetness with lots of white sugar everywhere. Sweetness everywhere goes to simple syrup mouthfeel, but still has some light body strangely enough. The hop angle on this is real solid and coating.

Overall though, it's far too sweet to enjoy more than once for myself. For once in those rare times I would have liked some bitterness here.

First had: on tap at TH

8oz. pour, hazy amber color topped with a creamy off-white head that retained well and left stratifying lacing on the glass. Hoppy nose, as might be expected, citrus, tropical fruit. Very tasty, with a blast of hops, candied orange and apricot, a plethora of tropical fruit, orange blossom sweetness, and almost no bitterness at all, an unusual but welcome (in this case) deviation from the norm of the style. Pretty smooth as far alcohol presence goes, though near the finish there was a bit of a boozy kick. Medium body, moderate carbonation, very good brew overall. Cheers!

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 1L growler filled 3/8.

Pours a nice, hazy gold. There isn't a whole lot of head, but there is a lot of sticky lacing left behind.

Tropical fruit aroma fills the nose, there is a hint at the amount of alcohol, but overpowering. The aroma is the star of this show.

First taste is a creamy mango fruitiness...There is still little evidence of the ABV.

Mouthfeel is very nice. It's creamy and has a nice bit of oiliness to it. Really makes you crave another sip.

This is is a pretty solid beer. It's deceptively drinkable at 11.5%. Just a touch more carbonation would be nice, but that is minor. This should be brewed again, it might be much for regular rotation, but once or twice a year would be perfect!
