Pours a really attractive peach tinged, golden color. Very radiant with some cloudiness in the liquid. About half an inch worth of white foam, that disspates to a ring not long after pouring. Quite a few fine streams of bubbles can be seen trailing the sides of the glass.
This beer smells straight up fruity. Extremely aromatic with sweet notes of grapefruit and a smorgasbord of tropical flavors.
The first taste was fairly suspenseful. As it washed over my palate, it led into a sweetness which made me think it would be malty, but no, it just explodes into juicy, fruity flavors of pungent grapefruit, mango, and passion fruit. All of this is followed up by a really pleasant, mellow bitterness. Absolutely phenomenal.
Mouthfeel is medium-full bodied, and the carbonation is a bit on the higher side which really complements the flavor profile of this beer well, in my opinion. Finishes somewhat dry and leaves me wanting more.
This is a really big beer, yet it's extremely drinkable. I've had no problem quaffing this bomber over the course of an hour. I'm glad I picked up another bottle for a later time, because this is an extremely good beer that will leave any hop head wanting more.
