On draft at business dinner. Poured into pint glass. Scant head when it arrived. Amber to dark orange in color. Smells of caramel and tropical fruits. Good mouth feel with medium carbonation. Taste is sweet caramel malts balanced with citrus and tropical fruit flavors. More malty then bitter and alcohol is completely hidden.

Overall, very good. Have had many times before at the brewery and fresh from a growler and it was a bit hoppier.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Amber color with a one finger off-white head with medium retention.
Nice tropical fruit aroma with notes of caramel, passion fruit, mango, pineapples and mild pine.
Flavor of caramels, grapefruit and lemon citrus, some mango, spices, American yeast and finishing with pine and resin. Dry aftertaste with a long but controlled bitterness.
Light body with mild carbonation. Alcohol of 7.2% is simply not there.
I felt that flavor didn't need to change a bit but could be bolder, it doesn’t actually fell like 80 IBUs, it got to be a toy gun. Nevertheless, it was very pleasant, well balanced and highly drinkable, with a great aroma and nice pine finish.
