A: beautiful light amber with a big fluffy head. Lots of tight carbonation bubbles coming up from the bottom on this one.
S: As soon as i began pouring this hops hit me like a ton of bricks! Deep dark earthy pine counterbalanced with big fresh bright tropical fruit. Pineapple, mango, and fresh white peach. There is definitely traces of honey on this bad boy! A sharp citrus hits on the end.
T: A symphony of hops. Pineapple, a little mango, almost a tart apple quality. The end is backloaded with piney, resinous hops. Glorious! there is grapefruit and citrus and lemon peel. As if all these tropical fruits and pine needles were skewered with honey. Nice and sweet malts with hints of caramel and honeycomb. The finish is dry, clean and quick. It hits you and leaves.
M: Medium bodied. Thick without feeling heavy. A small trace of carbonation. There is no alcohol present in this AT ALL.
O: One of my all time favorite beers. There is so much going on with a huge hope character. its on the sweeter side but it works so well. The malt may not shine here but it plays a great supporting role. Ive had this fresh and it was amazing. ive also had a bottle that was almost 6 months old and it was also amazing. This beer holds up and lives up to its lofty expectations! /96
