A - Pours a very nice gold color 1 finger of a fizzy head, nice thick lacing on the sides.
S - Big juicy hops, pineapple, mango, citrus, pine, rye, pepper, caramel and toffee malts. There's also a strong alcohol presence.
T - Big lime and grapefruit flavors, those are definitely the dominant qualities in this, then you get some overly ripe tropical fruits, kinda like fruit cocktail, the mid way through you get some caramel and toffee kinda sweet malts, a little pepper and rye underneath, some pine bitterness that sneaks up then really gets you. Some alcohol burn on the end.
M - Thick, chewy, lots of abrasive bitterness, cloying flavor.
O - This does get better as it warms up, it reminds me a lot of Great Lakes' Lake Erie Monster with the abundance of ripe fruit flavor, but the alcohol burn and smell is too much, and there's a weird rye peppery aftertaste thats just making it disappointing.
