A: Pours a hazy golden peach/apricot in color with some moderate amounts of fine visible yeast sediment in suspension at the bottom of the glass, light amounts of visible carbonation, and some orange + golden yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall foamy light beige head that slowly reduces to a couple of medium sized thin patches, a thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer, and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Very light aromas of caramel malts underneath moderate to strong aromas of citrus/grapefruit hops, tropical/pineapple/mango hops, and much lighter amounts of pine & floral hops.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of caramel malts with a light amount of sweetness. That is followed by fairly aggressive and strong flavors of hops - citrus/grapefruit, tropical/pineapple/mango, and pine. Moderate amounts of fairly aggressive hop bitterness in the finish which lingers for quite a while.

M: Just shy of full bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly sticky with a light amount of dryness in the finish.

O: This is really enjoyable with nice hop flavors, though slightly aggressive, and well balanced with the malts - there is enough sweetness that is it not overly or unpleasantly bitter. Pretty easy to drink and definitely one I would like to find again. Alcohol is well hidden.

The nose on this is faint at best for me. Not sure of the exact canning date on this one but I do know it has some age. The taste however is very present. Lots of sweet, citrusy hops. Enough malt presence to stand up to the bold hop profile but it definitely doesn't take over.

Really enjoyed this despite having it well past it's peak freshness.

Hazy peach and apricot color, pillowy white head, and big sticky lace. Big aromas of grapefruit, peach and mango. Taste follows through. Grapefruit dominant, slight malty sweetness up front merges with peach and mango flavors through the middle and a grapefruit bitter finish. Nice medium mouthfeel, carbonation breaks toward smooth at the finish where it gets crisp and semi dry. Honestly, one of the best beers I've ever had. Big hop flavors, great look and feel and a to die for aroma.
