Reviewed from notes from 1/6/14
A- A massive plume of white foam sits atop a hazy orange/hay-colored body. Plenty of lacing is left on the glass.
S- The aroma is an initial burst of tropical fruit, especially passion fruit and mango, along with pineapple, followed by lots of citrus. Tangerine and lemon mainly, with some grapefruit as well. Some pine and bready/caramelly malt are also detected. A wonderful aroma!
T- The flavor opens with a lot of the tropical fruit, but that is ushered away by moderately bitter citrus and pine, and then finishes with clean, crisp cracker-like bready malt. This is very well balanced, but I wish the flavors melded a bit more rather than having such a clear cut progression from one to the next. It should be noted that this growler was over 2-weeks old, so it may have suffered slightly from that.
M- The mouth feel is medium, with not much carbonation. Crisp and clean.
O- This may have been negatively effected by the 2+ weeks it spent in the growler, but if so then this beer is truly world class! Some minor flaws such as less of the hop flavors and carbonation can likely be linked to that. Still an outstanding beer!

Totally lives up to the hype. Pours a hazy orange with a nice average sized head. Nose is citrus, mostly grapefruit, orange. Taste follows, big citrus, grapefruit is forefront but nice big bitter bite at the end. Extremely drinkable. Excellent excellent beer.
Serving type: on-tap
