On tap in a stemmed tulip glass.
A- This batch is not dark amber at all, but a nice looking hazy orange-gold color with a tan head that slowly fades but holds on and leaves some lacing. It's jumping with bubbles,too.
S- There is some citrus/grapefruit aroma but I pick up mostly tropical fruit notes like mango and pineapple. There are also notes of pine and strong caramel malts, sweet malts at that.
T- The citrus/tropical fruit, pine, and caramel malts all shine. There is a strong presence of sweetness from the malts and the high abv for sure.
M-Nice carbonation, some slick pine resin, sweet. The malts and 10.4% abv combine for a sweetness that tempers the hops.
O-As much as want to love this beer, the sweet alcohol character is a bit of a stumble for me. Not bad.
Serving type: on-tap
