Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: xlperro on 12-18-2002

This brew uses several varieties and multiple hop additions to the kettle as well as a large "hop back" to give the bitterness and aroma a start. Plenty of dry hops finish it off and give a big hop bouquet.
Draft & 22oz bottles.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

22oz bottle. Thanks! 2 weeks old.

A: Orange tinted cider color with a thin whipping of head. Decent legs.

N: Truckloads of pineapple and mandarin oranges. There's a modicum of spurce and a dense layer of malt at the base. A little oniony zest.

T: Good correlation between the taste and the smell. Pineapple, dense pine - more so than the nose - clementines, crystal sugars. There's a wonderful sweet base that yields to the stern bite of the bitterness.

M: sticky with a medium-full mouthfeel. Quite nice.

O: This is a delightful tropical treat. It's very balanced in its approach, which is an aspect I greatly appreciate in my (D)IPAs. Kudos.
