Had this on tap at a festival...but stopped by the brewery and picked up a growler....and talked to Rodger. Cool dude. Two days old....
Pours a relatively clear amber ale with a frothy one finger off-white head. Major sticky lacing.
The aroma is big on the pineapple, passion fruit, sweet malt, sticky-sweet candy, and pear. Yum.
The taste is on the sweeter side with a bit of hops on the swallow and another rush of sweetness on the aftertaste. Tangy. That's the word that keeps coming to mind. Some pine.
Mouthfeel is decent.
Overall this a definite sweet Triple IPA. The hops are there, but the sweetness is on display big time. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
Serving type: growler
