A: golden/orange color with fluffy white/off white head. tons of bubbles in the middle and streaming off of the bottom. head disappears quickly but a ring of lacing and some bubbles stay around

S: tropical, citrus, some caramel and sweet bready malts. some floral and lighter fruit notes. some sweet honey is noticeable. complex and delicious.

T: sweet malts and honey upfront, with a huge wave of tropical and citrus hops to wash it away. surprisingly drinkable for 10%

M: medium mouthfeel, bordering on heavier, but remains so drinkable.

O: so balanced yet so unbalanced and deliciously hoppy. One of the best beers ever.

P.S. If you get the chance, try this with an aged cheddar. It is supreme
