A big thanks to Deadm8 and IDateTheFormula for sending me a collective 11 bottles of this.

Pours a clear orange blossom honey colored hue into a portsmouth brewery snifter. A two finger fine bubbled head emerges and recedes after about 30 seconds leaving small splotchy lacing around the edges of the glass.

Smell is full of clean, fresh, hops, some moderate alcohol, pine, pineapple and light honey.

Taste starts off with tropical fruits like papaya and pineapple drizzled with honey, and garnished with fine grated pine needles. Some alcohol heat and flavor follow making it know that this isn't your average IPA.

Mouthfeel is slick and syrupy with ild carbonation but still very light and easy drinking given the alcohol content.

I could have roughly 3 of these before I could taste nothing other than hops for the rest of the night, and I'd almost be ok with that.
