WowaWoowa! This is really a super premium brew. Not at all the aggressive hop demon evil gypsy potion I was expecting.

Pours a hazy brownish orange color with a large head and great lacing. The aroma is initially hoppy, but with an exceptionally sweet citrus element as well. The last reviewer who detected the cat urine is hilarious. I kind of pick up on that as well now that I read that, but wouldn't have otherwise. Apricot jelly is prominent as well.

The taste is initially restrained until you swallow. The aftertaste is an explosion of peach, pineapple, and apricot with some hop bitterness in the finish. That's right! A little hop bitterness in the finish. That's it. A veritable fruit basket, this one.

Mouthfeel is lively yet smooth and the drinkability is ridiculous. It would be so easy to put too many of these away. One of the best beers I've had in a while.
