Many thanks to twizzard for this howler.

A - Pours a dark copper amber color with slight head, mild carbonation. Sticky on the sides of the glass.

S - Papaya, pineapple, mango, oranges, and grapefruit and light pine - definitely hop forward.

T - A ton of pine resin and tropical fruit: oranges, papaya, pineapple, red grapefruit, peppery spicy tropical rinds. Up front is a slight bit of sweet malt before the hops crash in over the top and carry everything to the proverbial lingering bitter end. Has a long, lingering peppery rind finish, after awhile the malt/hop combo creates a borderline candy sweetness.

M - Medium body, gentle carbonation with a smooth texture and coats the mouth to the point where it feels like cotton.

O - All about the hops in this one. As the beer warms, a little more malt character and alcohol starts to surface, better totally cold and will definitely trash your palate!
