Got this from a friend and I really wanted to have good feedback for him. Not sure how this is rated so high. Smelled pretty good and the taste started out nicely fruity but the finish was just a disaster and the warmer it got, the worse it got. Really wanted to like this, but drainpoured halfway through. (306 characters)

This drinks with a great fruity hop personality. I get tropical fruit straight away, than watermelon, mango and oranges. Mid palate is a little danker with some pine and herbal notes. It finishes with nectarines and a caramel maltiness. (236 characters)

A: A dark copper, borderline gold with a slight white head comprised of big soapy bubbles.

S: Fresh mango pulp! this is followed but cascades of pineapple, sweet caramel and tons of grapefruit. Dried fruit comes to mind while enjoying this aroma with a nice tart citrus.

T: Very floral opening to this brew. Freshly squeezed lemon and grapefruit are mixed with bits of grass and mandarin orange. Pineapple makes an appearance with a juicy pine finish. And my oh my does it finish long.

M: Medium bodied with not much in the way of carbonation although you can feel the bubbles on your tongue. long juicy finish.

O: Very impressed. wonderful. juicy yet balanced. a beautiful beer that i cant wait to have again. /93 (719 characters)
