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.

On draft, pours a dark ruby red with brown and orange hues creeping in. Decent carbonation.

The smell is tropical fruit, citrus and a good caramel malt mix with a little spice and resin. The flavor is very bitter, a little metallic, caramel malt sweetness. The resin just sits there on the finish, making you want a glass of water to rinse out. This was good, I liked it, but its just standard, nothing to get excited about.
