Appearance:

As I pulled the cap off the bottle I only heard a slight hiss from the carbonation gas. I decided to pour this into my Sam Adams perfect pint glass and was left with a thick and hearty one finger thick bone white head that hung around for the whole pint. As I hold my glass up to the light it appears to be a burnt orange almost honey color that is crystal clear. When I give a swirl the viscosity is pretty thick leaving lasting legs that are running down the walls of my glass.

Smell:

Sweet, bright citrus notes, honey, caramel, lots of pine and other sugars. The middle is filled with all kinds of mango and other tropical fruits which really bring out all that the beer as to offer. There is a tinge of the heat alcohol and strangely enough something that resembles a women s hair salon.

Taste:

Very hoppy but not sharp and bitey but rather smooth and waxy resin leaves a thick coating on your palate which is amazing! Loads of warming alcohol and honey which rounds out the sweetness very well. Caramel and toffee thick chewy malt, lemon skins and more evergreen tree round out the finish.
