Had the winter version of this. Poured while waiting in line at DLD with some friends.
A-Poured into a small snifter. Nice golden amber color here with big off white head that took a while to come down leaving nice thick lacing around the sides.
S-The one thing I noticed off the top was it had a nice piney hop smell to it. It was settle but very noticeable to me. Also a little sweet malt smell with spices.
T-Man this beer is great. It has such an amazing taste to it. The malt and hops come together perfect with the hops taking a little bit more in the aftertaste. A little sweet but still can taste that pine to it. Also, maybe a little sweet citrus to it.
M-This was a nice medium heavy beer. It coats the mouth in a sweet/hop taste that doesn't make you cringe or want to lick your hands to get the nasty taste out. Wonderful.
D-This is a great drinker and only wish I could get it on a regular basis. This beer does it all for me and I'm kind of sad now that it is gone.

4.5/5 rDev +6.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75
Serving Type - 22oz bottle
Appearance - Golden tan, mellow yellow with a killer 3 inch thick, foamy head. Tons of sticky lacing.
Smell - Nice upfront citric, piney, grapefruit hops. Orange, some lemon, mild malt backbone. Sweet added sugars, along with some spices like coriander, lemon peel.
Taste - Right on par with aroma, big amounts of citric fruits featuring pine, grapefruit and orange. A bitter kick with some minor spices add a little zest behind tangerine and mango. A nice sugary note along with a caramel malt backbone.
Mouthfeel - Sweet tropical fruits along with some sugars coat the tongue. Palate gets more citric fruits, along with the caramel backbone. Aftertaste is minor bitter, tropical fruity.
Overall - Awesome. This should be a regular release. Really flavorful, nice amounts of hops and sweet sugars to create a nice smooth drink. Alcohol is hidden well and just adds to making this really pleasurable to drink.
