Color is a light golden with plenty of foam in the tall Maredsous glass. Hugely fragrant with pine and overripe papaya. Sprizty on the tongue and the carbonation lasts well out of the growler filled two days ago. Some sweetness and a nice malty body.

This has a sensational aromatic character that creates a whole hoppy aura before the bitterness gets much of a grip. The brewer told me the hops are Centennial, Chinook, and Zythos. There is a distinct browned biscuit taste along with the waves of fruit. Some mango and grilled pineapple, as well as a bitter resiny pine taste.

Moderate bitterness with a light, sudsy body that is quite delicious. There is a little restraint, but it's still plenty bitter and probably overhopped for anything but a big IPA. From the 32 oz jug filled at the brewery on Claremont Mesa.
