4.11/5 rDev -2.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
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

Appearance: It has a nice hazy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves nice lacing.
Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of citrus, pineapple, piney resin and some caramelly malts.
Taste: Like the aromas, it has citrus, some pineapple, a nice resiny pine bitterness and some sweet caramelly malts to balance it out.
Mouthfeel: It has a low/medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.
Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with great flavors and aromas.
