Wanted to hold off on this one until this fall, but I have no willpower. This is a treat. Pours a dusty walnut with a small white head that falls to a stubborn table. The smell is a blend of syrupy malts and hop oils, with neither overpowering the other. Sweet malts lead off the taste, followed quickly by a biting hoppiness that turns the finish positively arid. Mouthfeel is full and then the dryness makes the palate wondered what just happened. Just like the bottle says, it makes you crave the next sip. Very drinkable, but high ABV and an powerful hop bite keep it from being a repeatable quaff.

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.
