A - orange, not quite clear. Big off-white head. Leaves lots of sticky lace down the glass.
S - huge blast of sweet mango, very tropical
T - powerful mix of hop flavour, bitterness, maltiness, and alcohol. More mango goodness, but also lots of grapefruit. Aftertaste is incredible, hop flavour lingers forever.
M - somewhat sticky, but by the time you swallow, the bitterness and drying alcohol have more than cleansed your palette. Overall body is med-light. Alcohol is smooth, but it's tough to mask 10%, so it's pretty warm.
D - flavours and aromas are oustanding, and incredibly easy to drink
The few Bell's beers I have managed to sample have all been absolutely top notch, and this is no exception. This has everything that I'm looking for in a big IPA. Not much more to say, except believe the hype!
Thanks to Demcorhip for the bottle!
