Poured into a 16oz. snifter at the brewery.

A- Reddish-brown, hazy, light toffee head.

S- Sweet tropical notes of papaya, mango, pineapple, some pine. Some ABV coming through but nothing too distracting.

T- Similar to aroma, nice fruity notes, a good level of sweetness, some alcohol but not too much, a light lingering bitterness.

M- A bit on the heavier side of medium but not beyond what is expected for an 10% beer.

T- This is one of my favorite offerings I've had from Bell's and further proof that Bell's knows hops. Hope they keep the recipe and decide to brew it or something very similar again. It really reminded me of a higher ABV version of Roundhouse, which is another stellar Bell's hoppy offering.
